What is cubic zirconia?
Cubic Zirconia (CZ) is the ultimate diamond alternative with many of the same qualities. CZ mimics a diamond however is beautiful in its own right, producing more flashes of color & shine (known as fire) than a diamond.
CZ is in fact heavier than a diamond of the same size and due to its incredible visual similarities is often misrepresented as a pure diamond.
How sparkly is your crystal / cubic zirconia jewellery?
For our standard range, we use AAA cubic zirconia which is great for fashion jewellery and have a lot of luster and shine.
For our big stone / crushed ice range and HighCarbon rings (starting from £40), we use AAAAA cubic zirconia, which is considered the very best. Our AAAAA CZ are hand-cut by our artisans and have the luminosity of real diamonds!
Did you know that that the Pera ring (RRP: £40) is hand-cut with a cutting disk? Every facet is done manually! This beautiful ring with the same materials would normally retail for £100-£200. We are able to give you this price because we built a direct relationship with our stone artisans and we ship our jewellery directly from our factory.
Does CZ shine in the dark?
No, there needs to be a light source for CZ to shine, just like real diamonds need a light source for it to shine. Depending on the cut, they will shine in low light (such as the brilliant round cut).
Tip: When you receive your jewellery, turn on your lights, go outside if it is bright or shine your phone torch on it to see how amazingly sparkly they are!
