What is Cubic Zirconia?
Cubic Zirconia is a stone so optically close to diamond that most jewelers cannot tell the difference between a CZ and a diamond with the naked eye. The man-made stone is virtually flawless whereas most diamonds have internal inclusions or external blemishes. It is a high quality synthetic gemstone which imitates the appearance of diamonds. Cubic zirconia is zirconium oxide (ZrO2), a mineral that is extremely rare in nature. Synthesized CZ is much less expensive than diamond, optically flawless and can be created in a variety of different colors.
How Does CZ Compare to Diamond?
The overall brilliance and fire of quality CZ stones is equal to that of diamond to the untrained eye. Cubic zirconia can be evaluated using the same qualities that diamonds and other gemstones are graded by: the Four Cs (color, clarity, cut and carat weight). Cubic Zirconia is a virtually flawless equivalent to a diamond on the clarity chart. CZ can be made entirely colorless, equivalent to a perfect score on the color grading scale of diamonds. The biggest difference is that cubic zirconia is 70% heavier than diamond. CZ is extremely durable with a hardness rating of 8.5 compared to 10 for diamond.
Fun Facts about CZ
The procedure for transforming rough cubic zirconia crystal into a faceted, polished stone is virtually the same as for diamonds and other natural gemstones. Because CZ is harder than sand, CZ jewelry can be safely worn at the beach without risk of damage to the stone. Zircon is a much softer natural gemstone and is not related to cubic zirconia. Cubic zirconia production reached 50 million carats by 1980, and demand continues to grow.
Stacked rings are one of the hottest trends of the season. Showcase this with their Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Stacking Eternity Band Rings. Each of the three sterling silver rings holds a band of clear cubic zirconia stones. The round-shaped stones sit in a shared-prong setting to create a modern and finished look. Wear one, two, or all three at once to accent your hand with some glamorous bling.

Found it to be a bit pricy. The box is pretty low class storage for the cost. You can hardly tell the rose or gold ones when you look at them from the top when worn. Also the gold and rose gold are smaller than the silver band and stones.
I have couple of items with real diamonds and with bare eyes I can not say difference between CZ and diamonds. If you would research, you can find out that the shine of stone depends on hardness, harder it is - more facets you can make and facets are the creators of attractive shine. CZ is somewhere as tough as sapphire, which is right after the diamond in toughness chart, in numbers it is: 9 for CZ and 10 for diamond. Therefore people who say than can tell difference between CZ and diamonds rather have preconception against CZ then really see the difference.
Back to the rings: note that those are not all the same rings, they gradually increase in size from 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm or around that. All 3 of them together make quite a nice statement.
They are not comfy at first, as all infinity bands. You will spend some time trying to get used to them in case you want to wear them everyday. But you will eventually. My wedding band is infinity too, I spent about 2 weeks before I would not feel its presence on my finger (and between my fingers).
So yeah, rings are very pretty, I will definitely recommend. All 3 at the same time make a statement. Could use 2 of them to state out your engagement ring and put one as a pendant on the chain. Infinite possibilities with these amazing jewelry pieces.
The rings are very pretty. I did not notice from the picture but the stones in the middle ring are actually a little larger than the outer rings. For me, I like it. It gives the ring a bit more character.
I have had several comments since wearing them and everyone has thought that the ring was real. It especially sparkels well under the sun and under the lights in the office.
I have washed once with a gentle soap and water and the bigger bonus is my finger is not showing any signs of turning green!
