This breathtaking simulated diamond man made & Cubic Zirconia rings, bracelets and cz necklaces and earrings, in antique and contemporary designs, causes a stir in the highest places! It looks a million dollars but costs a fraction of that, and won't break your heart — or the bank — if it's lost or stolen. Many people now leave the real stuff at home or in the bank, and simply 'take-a-fake'.
All jewellery in our Fabulous Fakes range is made from cubic zirconia stones beautifully set in Sterling Silver plated in rhodium: a precious metal that is more expensive and pure than platinum. It makes silver stronger, and it protects allergy-prone wearers from the nickel in silver, and prevents the silver from tarnishing. Contact us for further information.
I wear Fab Fakes; my bank now charges £50 a time to take out the real stuff. This beats insuring it, taking it back to the bank, worrying about it... Lady P, Scotland
We use the best quality cubic zirconia for our fake diamond rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings - and yes, the quality does vary. CZs used in CZ jewellery are the man-made diamonds that even professional jewellers have to look at twice. They are made of compressed carbon but they take several million years less to produce than the real thing! The technical differences are:
- CZs are thermal insulators: diamonds are among the most efficient thermal conductors. A thermal probe applied to a suspect diamond will tell all!
- Specific gravity: a cz will weigh 1.7 times more than a real diamond.
- Hardness: a cz is not as hard as a diamond: 8.5 vv 10
Flaws: CZs are virtually flawless. Most diamonds have some sort of birthmark
- Colour: only the rarest diamonds are truly colourless. CZs can be made entirely colourless, equivalent to a perfect 'D' diamond on the diamond colour grading scale.
