Cubic Zirconia White
Cubic Zirconia White, the synthesized diamond replicant is one of the most popular diamond simulant materials in the world. Although lab-made, they have the exact resemblance of a 100% genuine, naturally-created diamond. Low cost and close visual likeness to diamond makes CZ a highly demanding product for those who wish to possess diamonds and not break their bank at the same time.
Here is our collection of Cubic Zirconia white diamonds in various designs and quality standards. Choose from the following categories to know more about the product and purchase details.

We keep listening to lines like “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, and indeed it is because of its attractiveness. However, it is not possible to keep on buying diamonds every time. So, we keep hunting for something similar yet inexpensive.
And guess what? If you like crystalline materials like diamonds, you will definitely love Cubic Zirconia (CZ). Cubic Zirconia or CZ is a form of zirconium dioxide that possesses many similar qualities to that of a diamond. You can believe it to be an inexpensive alternative to diamonds. Cubic Zirconia is a synthetic crystalline material, which means it is not a natural origin. Rather, it is created inside a laboratory.
Though earlier discovered in 1892 in the natural element of baddeleyite, their commercial production has been rapidly growing since the 1970s due to its high demand. As mostly it is better known as a mimic of diamond, Cubic Zirconia is often considered as an imitation, fake, faux or stimulant material. However, this crystalline material is unquestionably beautiful in its way. It could only become a problematic purchase if the seller misrepresents it as a diamond or any other gemstone to you.
So, how can you differentiate between cubic zirconia and a real diamond?
Cubic Zirconia vs Real Diamond
Both cubic zirconia and a real diamond may look identical to your naked eyes due to their unbelievable similar features. Therefore, it is quite impossible to differentiate between the two without proper knowledge. Hence, we have come up with some tips which you can follow to find out the difference between these two gemstones.
First of all, a piece of cubic zirconia will seem to be much heavier than a similar size diamond. However, diamonds are harder than the CZ. On the Mohs scale, you will see CZ is at 8.5, whereas the rate of diamond touches 10.
Cubic Zirconia created using Synthetic process
Cubic Zirconia is a formation of synthetic treatment of the skull crucible. In the laboratory, the packed zirconia powder is fed into the water-filled pipes of cup shapes. It is by wrapping the pipe along with the induction coils that have radio frequency perpendicular to the copper pipes, the crucial composition takes place. Lastly, the mixing of calcium oxide in the zirconia powder does the job.
Besides, their refractive index is between 2.15 to 2.18 and has the chemical formula of ZrO2. Also, the gradation of cubic zirconia using four A’s designates its qualities.
Shapes & Cuts
We can transform cubic zirconia into any popular shapes and cuts similar to diamonds and other colourful gemstones. To talk about cubic zirconia white, this lab-created gemstone is absolutely colorless.
Cubic zirconia is not as hard as a diamond, ruby or sapphire, which means it will not be equally durable. However, this is a great alternative for an affordable engagement ring in the short run. Moreover, they are suitable for making earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and other types of occasional jewelry.
Apart from jewelry making, CZ is popular in industrial uses, including can making, components of the aeroplane, dental implants, etc.
To sum up, it is only by carefully analyzing one can differentiate between a diamond and synthetic cubic zirconia. Plus, its inexpensive nature gives you enough reason to replace without any worry. Lastly, they are easy to clean as they require only detergent and a mild brush. So, choose your size, shape and cut, and get your own customized CZ item.
