Sparkly cubic zirconia choker. Length 15" Extender 2"
Cubic zirconia is a lab-grown gemstone; its most popular and common use is as a diamond simulant. Developed during the 1970s in the USSR, a CZ is colorless and is almost always flawless. A diamond, on can be found with varying tints of yellow and almost always contains flaws. A flawless colorless diamond is rare and therefore very expensive. The main visual difference between these two stones is the fire of a CZ. A diamond’s fire is much more subdued while a CZ sparkles in a variety of colors!
