What is the difference between SWAROVSKI Zirconia and Cubic Zirconia?

Cubic Zirconia

The Cubic Zirconia looks like a diamond feels like a diamond and cost a lot less. In fact, most people are unable to tell the difference between a diamond and a Cubic Zirconia but one way is to look at the Cubic Zirconia under a magnification of round 10x. You can see the facets do not point properly and where facets intersect, it is not a straight line. Other ways to tell the difference are doing a specific gravity test on an un-mounted stone, and when measuring heat conductivity, a Cubic Zirconia registers red on the indicator (a diamond is green). Cubic Zirconia (CZ) is well known as a substitute for diamond, due to its high hardness and durability. To the untrained eye, CZ looks very similar to a good quality diamond but CZ has slightly less brilliance or sparkle than a diamond and more fire or flashes of colour.

One great difference between cubic zirconia and diamond is weight; CZ is about 60% heavier than diamond. A piece of CZ the same size as a one carat diamond weighs about 1.6 carats.

CZ is also more brittle than diamond and softer. A cubic zirconia can be scratched by diamond , topaz, ruby or sapphire whereas a diamond can only be scratched by another diamond.

Cubic Zirconia (CZ) continuously populates the jewellery market as one of the most prominent diamond alternatives, due to its high hardness and great fire. CZ is a beautiful synthetic gemstone that is durable and inexpensive and now even comes in any colour of the rainbow, making it even more desirable. Cubic Zirconia is undoubtedly the best diamond substitute in today’s fashionable jewellery.

CZ was discovered by two German scientists in 1937. However, it was not until 1970 when the potential for cubic zirconia became apparent when a Russian scientist discovered the process to create it in a laboratory.

From then, SWAROVSKI & Co. started making Cubic Zirconia in large quantities for the diamond market.

 

SWAROVSKI ZIRCONIA – The Brand

Zirconia is considered to be the best diamond look-alike ever developed. For this reason, SWAROVSKI believes Zirconia should be cut to standards equivalent to those set for the finest-cut diamonds.

How to Choose the Best Earrings For Your Face Shape

 

MATCH YOUR EARRINGS TO YOUR FACE SHAPE

Earrings can make your face look wide, thin, long or fat depending on your face shape.

 
INVERTED TRIANGLE SHAPED FACE

Choose earrings that de-emphasise your wide forehead and create the illusion of width at the jawline. Chandelier or teardrop earrings work well.

OVAL FACE
You can wear almost any shape, but triangular earrings or simple studs will show off your lovely cheekbones best.

ROUND FACE
Drop or dangle earrings will elongate your face and make it look slimmer. Avoid large circular earrings, hoops and button studs which only emphasise the roundness.

HEART SHAPED FACE
Counterbalance your sharp chin with chandelier or teardrop earrings. Earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top help fill in the lower portion of your face, so your face is more balanced.

LONG AND NARROW FACE
Studs, clustered earrings, short dangles, hoops in a medium to large size. Any type of round earrings will widen your face, and make it look fuller.

SQUARE FACE
Go for earrings that are medium to long with rounded edges. Oval shapes soften things up, and circular earrings and hoop earrings work well too.

5 reasons why Jewellery is the Perfect Gift

5 reasons why Jewellery is the perfect gift

If you’ve ever received a piece of jewellery as a gift, chances are you’ll probably remember who gave it to you, where you were and on what occasion. You may even remember what they said. Giving jewellery as a gift is a wonderful idea – it can be meaningful, but also very practical. It’s a gift that you can wear every day and keep forever. Here are five reasons why jewellery makes a great gift:


  1. Jewellery is lasting. Jewellery is more than a purchase – it’s an investment that can appreciate in value over time. Plus, most family heirlooms are pieces of jewellery that pass from one generation to the next. You could be the one starting a new family tradition!
  2. It sends the right message. Giving jewellery as a gift can help you share how you feel when you can’t find the right words. It expresses your love, your friendship, your tenderness, your recognition or any other sentiment. There isn’t anything better than a piece of jewellery and it leaves a lasting impression.
  3. It’s customisable. Jewellery is extremely customisable. You can find or create custom pieces that represent a loved one’s personality, colour preferences or style. To make your gift even more personal and one-of-a-kind, have it engraved with a special date, word or phrase.
  4. It’s versatile. No matter what your taste or budget, you can find an item to suit your needs. Plus, jewellery is appropriate for every race, age, gender and class. Rings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings and watches – there’s something for everyone.
  5. Jewellery surprises and delights. As mentioned – few things are as memorable as receiving jewellery from a loved one. Jewellery as a gift always makes people happy. Everyone likes to receive a piece of jewellery that was chosen carefully by a loved one. Even though it has always been a great gift – jewellery will continue to elicit surprised gasps and happy tears for years to come.

And there’s a bonus point:

The dramatic presentation. Part of giving jewellery is setting the stage – and you can make the presentation just as special as the gift! Think proposal, wedding, anniversaries and any other memorable special occasion. Need some inspiration? Check out Kelvin Gems for a variety of options available to suit your needs and budget.
