What is a cubic zirconia?
A cubic zirconia is a lab-created gemstone. It is zirconium oxide in cubic form and the crystal clear stone resembles diamonds. It took many years to invent cubic zirconias; the process lasted from 1892 until 1930 when the first cubic zirconia was introduced. It wasn't until the 1970s, however, that the cubic zirconia, sometimes abbreviated as CZ, was first used in fashion jewelry. Since the 1970s, cubic zirconias have been the leading diamond-alternative gems for rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other types of gemstone jewelry and accessories. Today, cubic zirconias are available in a myriad of sizes and a rainbow of hues, from perfect white stones to bright red gems.
