The Quality Grading System for the Cubic Zirconia stones



The Quality Grading System for the Cubic Zirconia stones
Cubic zirconia, the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide (ZrOS), is considered to be the top grade diamond stimulant available on the market today.  Like most gemstones, it is available in several different grades.  Much like a diamond, the conditions under which a particular loose cubic zirconia stone was created will affect its quality.

Loose Cubic Zirconia stones Quality grades

In general, grades of cubic zirconia are based on the purity of their ingredients as well as the proportions of the formula used when they were synthesized, and the temperature and pressure at which the elements are combined.  In other words, the type of CZ produced will vary depending on the type of stabilizer uses in the synthesis process as well as in the amount of stabilizer used.
Loose Cubic Zirconia stones comes in 5 grades beginning with A grade which is the most basic.  While AA, AAA, AAAA, and AAAAA are all represent good quality, as the A’s become progressively more abundant, even higher quality is represented.  Grades AAA through AAAAA are more likely to have more sparkle and are often guaranteed to last longer.  In addition, the higher the grade of CZ stones, the more its luster will be as well.
Unlike most diamonds, all CZ stones are optically flawless and quite durable and resist scratching with normal wear.  They are relatively hard at about 8 on the Mohs scale, much harder than most natural gemstones according to the scale.  Discovered in 1976, the low cost and durability of cubic zirconia stones has made it a great competitor to the diamond ever since.
When choosing the loose CZ stones, jewelers and jewelry designers must not only take into account the size, shape, and cut, but should also carefully consider which grade of CZ will be best fitting for a particular piece of jewelry.

More and more Jewelry designers like to use CZ or Lab created gemstones instead of Diamond for their jewelry
The Kimberley Process has helped to join governments together to try to stop the illegal trade of diamonds, but at times illegal diamonds have slipped through the cracks.  When diamonds slip through the cracks, warlords are able to continue campaigns of exploitation and terror in their African nation.  Conflict diamonds are also called “blood diamonds” as many people have died in the fight for and against the transporting of these beautiful shiny gemstones.

They say that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”…or at least that is how the song goes.  Most ladies, and likely most of the gentlemen population that live in the United States as well, are not overjoyed with the idea that the jewelry they are wearing could be funding a war that they do not support in a land far away.
The great news is that jewelry designers and manufacturers do not need to rely on the diamond industry to produce high class jewelry that both men and women will love.  Purchasing wholesale loose cubic zirconia stones or wholesale lab created gems instead of conflict diamonds is best as a jeweler or manufacturer can create radiant jewelry pieces which are both alluring and admirable to those who see them.

The Emirates Palace decorated with Cubic zirconia stones




Wholesale cubic zirconia has all of the visual properties of a flawless, naturally mined diamond but costs only a fraction of the price.  Because cz stones is created in a controlled lab environment, each piece is free of inclusions and perfect to replace natural diamonds in fine jewelry (or on Christmas trees) in order to maintain quality while keeping the price affordable.
The Emirates Palace hotel in Abu Dhabi has unveiled what they hope will take home the Guinness Book of World Records title for the most expensively decorated Christmas tree.  The artificial tree, which stands more than forty feet tall, is quite a site to behold with more than one hundred and eighty pieces of fine jewelry hanging from its branches.

The outrageously blinged out tree contains diamond necklaces and earring sets, pearl necklaces and ruby and emerald bracelets.  The most expensive jewel on the incredible tree carries a price tag of nearly one million dollars and the estimated total for the fine jewelry decorations is close to eleven million dollars.

The Emirates Palace already holds one Guinness record for the most expensive alcohol shot at two thousand dollars, but is facing a bit of close competition on this particular record.  There is reportedly a completely decked out Christmas tree in Japan with an estimated total value of just under eleven million dollars, which should serve as further proof that diamonds are certainly back in 2010.

Though the tree at the Emirates Palace is certainly stunning, the use of so many pieces of fine jewelry containing naturally mined diamonds certainly makes it a one of a kind.  It would be nice to possibly see an exact replication made here in the United States using a much more affordable and accessible stone like cubic zirconia.

CZ Stones and Lab created gems are equal in Quality?




Is it CZ Stones and Lab created gems are equal in Quality?
The answer is no, in fact, Not all cubic zirconia or lab created gems are the equal. Huge variations in quality are possible depending on how the cz gems are produced. Low-quality production methods can produce lab gems quickly and cheaply, often for under a dollar per carat;  but their quality, appearance and durability suffer greatly. Unlike their inferior counterparts, high-quality cubic zirconia and lab gems are created using superior base materials under exacting and time consuming laboratory conditions. While the cost of these high-quality synthetic gems may be higher, they are indistinguishable from the real McCoy without the aid of expert testing. Retail sellers may charge as much as several hundred dollars per carat for superior-quality cubic zirconia and lab gems; however, savvy cz buyers know they can purchase the same exquisitely created cubic zirconia gems from reputable online cz wholesalers like FU RONG Gems for a mere fraction of their retail cost.

Lab Created Ruby(Corundum) Stones
Loose cubic zirconia and lab created gems are created in the laboratory using two basic methods, either melt growth or solution growth. Melt growth is inexpensive but creates very low quality crystals. Melt growth is used to create the cheap synthetic gems used in class rings and discount store jewelry. Melt growth crystals lack fire and brilliance and have a “dead” look like a piece of colored glass.

Superior solution growth lab gems are more often created using the flux method, the method used to create the high quality cubic zirconia and lab gems sold online at www.frgems.com. Cubic zirconia, lab ruby, lab sapphire and synthetic alexandrite crystals are formed in supersaturated chemical baths. The flux method used to create the loose lab gems sold by FU RONG GEMS produces the world’s highest quality cubic zirconia and lab gems. These manmade gems are virtually indistinguishable from Mother Nature’s own creations without the aid of a microscopic inspection and examination by a qualified expert.

In fact, high quality lab created gems like lab rubies and lab blue sapphires are created using the exact same chemical composition used by Mother Nature. FU RONG GEMS lab rubies and lab sapphires are created in the lab from synthetic corundum, just as nature creates these gems from naturally occurring corundum. Superior production techniques allow these lab created gems to be cut and polished exactly like natural gems and diamonds.
