What are CVD Diamonds
You’ve heard of them, and they’re definitely a topic of conversation in marketing meetings. But what is CVD diamond, exactly? And are they worth anything to you or your company, or is it just part of a slick sales pitch to get you to buy them instead of mined diamonds? Here’s everything you need to know about CVD diamond before making that purchase.
What Makes a Good Cubic Zirconia
You can find genuine cubic zirconia in a lot of places. Retail stores, such as Zales and Kay Jewelers, sell them, but they aren’t that great quality. One place where you can get top-quality is through Amazon. There are several different sellers selling jewelry with high-quality cubic zirconia gems at affordable prices. However, it’s important to note that you don’t have to buy directly from Amazon; you can buy your stone elsewhere and have it shipped directly to you if you prefer.
How to Identify Fake Cubic Zirconia
If you love diamonds but can’t afford to purchase one, you might think about purchasing cubic zirconia instead. They look similar and it’s unlikely anyone will be able to tell that they are anything other than diamonds at first glance. However, not all cubic zirconia is created equal and some of it is easy to spot. Learn more about how to take care of your diamond collection and identify fake CVD diamond in order to make sure that what you’re spending your money on is actually worth something.
Where to Buy Genuine Cubic Zirconia
Several of our offices receive calls from customers in search of a specific type of cubic zirconia. Since we don’t stock cZ, we direct them to one of our trusted partners. However, there are several sources that specialize in cubic zirconia and they don’t all sell authentic jewelry at fair prices. Here is some information you should know when you are trying to decide who to buy your cZ jewelry from.
What is cubic zirconia (cZ)? – It is not a real diamond or real gemstone, but it looks exactly like a diamond or a genuine gemstone at first glance and it is certainly cheaper than a diamond! What makes it different? – The difference between cubic zirconia and a real diamond is that cZ has no flaws, whereas diamonds have flaws such as inclusions, blemishes, etc. How do I know if my cZ jewelry is authentic? – If you purchase your jewelry from an authorized retailer then you will get an original piece of cZ jewelry. You will also get a certificate stating its authenticity so if anything happens to your ring or necklace down the road then you can always return it for repair or replacement since it was purchased from an authorized dealer. How much does genuine cubic zirconia cost? – A single carat of 6mm round cut AAA quality costs $150-$200 depending on where you live.
A Final Word on CVD and Its Value
CVD, or cardiovascular disease, is an umbrella term for a wide range of problems affecting your heart and blood vessels. Unfortunately, one of its most dangerous forms—coronary artery disease (CAD)—is also often referred to as hardening of the arteries or clogged arteries. The first step in preventing CAD is to know whether you have any risk factors for it: if you do, there are measures you can take to lower your chances of developing CAD (for example, by losing weight if you are overweight; eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables; exercising regularly; not smoking; and limiting alcohol intake).
