Zirconia is a popular alternative to a diamond in jewelry due to its affordability and visual similarity. It is often used as a diamond simulant in engagement rings, earrings, pendants, and other types of jewelry. Zirconia gemstones are generally colorless, but they can also be produced in various colors to mimic other gemstones.
Zirconia jewelry showcases the brilliance and glamour of cubic zirconia gemstones, offering an affordable yet stunning alternative to traditional diamond jewelry.
Typically, cubic zirconia is set in metals such as sterling silver, gold-plated silver, or stainless steel. These metals can undergo tarnishing due to exposure to certain environmental factors, such as moisture, air, chemicals, or even natural body oils and sweat. Tarnishing of the metal components can result in a dull or discolored appearance for the overall piece of jewelry.
