Our cubic zirconia will cut
Today we can choose from many different
stone shapes (also referred to as "cuts") ranging from the
classics to newer silhouettes that appear as diamond jewelry cutters endeavor to
create new looks. These are the eight most popular and traditional cuts:
||Round Brilliant - This is the most classic
cut. A well made round brilliant diamond has 58 facets, is
symmetrical, well polished, and reflects a very high percentage of
the light that enters it - thus its name - round brilliant. It is
the most popular shape found in cubic zirconia diamond jewelry.
||Marquise - The Marquise diamond is an
elongated brilliant-cut stone with a point on each end, which can
vary in shape from long and slender to a shorter, broader
appearance. In general, marquise diamonds are approximately twice as
long as they are wide, but some prefer the look of a longer or
||Princess - A Princess cut is
typically a four-sided square, brilliant-cut diamond with pointed
rather than truncated ("clipped") corners.
|Radiant/Emerald - Usually
rectangular, this cut demonstrates a classic
elegance. Fully faceted for maximum brilliance,
unlike the traditional step cut that are very transparent.
||Pear - A pear or teardrop shaped diamond
combines the brilliance and form of a round stone with the elongated
elegance of a marquise. While a pear is generally half again as long
as it is wide, some prefer the look of a longer or shorter stone.
||Oval - While reminiscent of the round
brilliant cut, both in sparkle and shape, the oval maintains its own
brand of elegance, and has recently become a very popular
centerpiece for engagement rings.
||Heart - A more
fanciful cut, shaped just as it sounds, heart shaped diamonds make
truly beautiful pendants and earrings, and have now begun to gain in
popularity as engagement stones.
|Cushion - With the appearance of a
princess cut with rounded corners this cut offers many facets and

"Gemstone Quality" Cubic Zirconia
Our Cz Stone Are (
AAAAA ) Quality which means there will be no higher or better quality
Russian CZs are the finest cubic zirconia diamonds available. Just as there are
many different grades of diamonds, there are also many different
grades of cubic zirconia stones. Superior cutting & polishing, for
maximum brilliance, create a noticeable difference between our Russian
CZs and the conventional grades of cubic zirconia which are mass
produced and commercially cut with minimal finishing techniques.
Selected from the finest CZ crystals, experienced cutters facet and
hand polish each Russian CZ stone to the same specifications used for
diamonds (set forth by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America), So
you will always be assured that your Russian CZ is of the best quality
& to exact diamond cutting standards.
When these Russian CZs are
compared to fine diamonds, many experts can not distinguish the
difference without the aid of sophisticated gemological equipment. Russian
CZs have a dispersion greater than diamond, and this produces an
abundance of color play & "fire".
Don't be "fooled" by other fancy brand
names. Our CZs have all the durability, fire, luster, & brilliance
as other advertised "brand" names like signity, QVC
diamonique, russian ice, russian brilliant, ziamond, etc.
Russian CZ's are Cut.
The "secret" for keeping your CZ diamond
jewelry's brilliance, sparkle, & fire is: to KEEP THEM CLEAN.
Caring for your Cubic Zirconia Diamond Jewelry
1. Cubic Zirconia that is set in Karat-gold or sterling silver can
be worn everyday.
2. While almost as hard as diamonds, even diamonds can chip if hit
the right way. So take precautions, such as removing
jewelry when doing heavy work.
3. Soap can leave a sparkle-dimming film, so remove your CZ jewelry
before showering or cleaning. Similarly, remove jewelry when applying
makeup and face/body powder, as they can dull its shine.
4. Have your jewelry checked by a jeweler regularly. He will check
for loose settings and professionally clean the jewelry as well.
Cleaning Your CZ Jewelry
1. The more you clean your Cubic Zirconia jewelry the more spectacular it will
look. All jewelry loses its beauty if soap, hand cream, dirt and body
oils collect and solidify on it.
2. The best way to clean your CZ jewelry is to soak it in a
brand-name liquid jewelry cleaner. Most solutions come with a small,
soft brush for hard to reach areas. For better cleaning, use an
ultrasonic cleaner with cleaning solution.
3. In between clean-ups, polish with a chamois cloth or cotton
4. Have your jewelry professionally cleaned & checked regularly,
He will check for loose settings, as well do a superior cleaning job.
