Why Cubic Zirconia Bands Are Getting So Popular

By Ross Peters

Having a perfect engagement ring is vital. Engagement rings are always the first present to a woman whenever a man proposes to her. Because the summer is the hottest time for weddings to occur, wedding jewelry sales shoot through the roof around mid year. However, did you know that engagement rings are also popular types of gifts during the Christmas season?

The first sign of the custom of exchanging rings began way back where men would hand the woman of his choice a nuptial ring as a sign of his affection. Back then, they did not have the exquisite materials used in the rings we have today, rather they used iron.

While the rings were simple and did not have a 18 carat diamond on it at the time, it was quite often noted that the rings were engraved on the inside instead, carrying the initials of the person.

Today we have exquisite diamonds that dwarf the iron bands of the past in terms of beauty. And of late, cubic zirconia’s have been gaining in popularity as a cheaper alternative to diamonds.

Although there are many couples who decide on plain gold or silver bands for engagement rings because they want something clean and simple, the majority of people who do so opt for a plain band because they can’t afford to have diamonds.

Cubic zirconias are the best choice for those of you who doesn’t want to spend too much money on buying a diamond engagement ring but still want something that looks almost identical. Let’s face it, wouldn’t it make more sense to save the money for a new car instead?

To an untrained person, the cubic zirconia cannot be easily told apart from a diamond. It would take a professional along with special equipment to see the real difference between the two types of stones.

If you’re young and you’re about to propose to the lady of your dreams, you might want to seriously consider a zirconia as you can have the option of having colored stones as opposed to just having a clear one. Diamonds when colored cost a lot more money as they’re extremely rare.
