Why Should you Buy Fake Jewelry?

By: Janice Wee

Cubic Zirconia is often used to imitate diamonds because of its visual similarity to diamonds. Its hardness and brilliance can pass it off for diamond itself. Cubic zirconia has its own beauty. Unfortunately, since it has often been used to mimic diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds, cubic zirconia jewelry is often though of as imitation jewelry, or fakes.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and her guy's bank account's worst enemy. A decent-sized diamond can easily cost thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars. All that money just to have a sparkly gem on her finger or ears or around her throat. Okay, when it comes to a wedding proposal, anything less than a diamond might very well disappoint her. But if she declines the proposal, then what?

A smart way is to use get her one of those cubic zirconia engagement rings. They look like a real diamond ring but cost a tiny fraction of the price. If she accepts the proposal, then go get her a real diamond. Or if she'd rather you spend the money on your life together and on a fabulous honeymoon, you could get cubic zirconia wedding rings to save money.

Weddings aside, fake jewelry really is a girl's best friend if she has to pay for them herself.

Fancy the gorgeous rubie and diamond necklace your favourite celeb wore in a movie? How about J.Lo's wedding ring? Or the fancy jewels seen at the oscars.

How would those jewels look on you?

Can't afford them?

Probably not the ones the stars are wearing which are probably set with real diamonds, emeralds, sapphire and rubies, and come with bodyguards to ward off potential snatch thieves.

That doesn't mean you'll have to do without jewelry that looks like the ones the celebs wear though. You can always wear cubic zirconia jewelry which resembles the ones from the best jewelers or the movie set.

Come to think of it, those who can afford to wear necklaces with huge diamonds and who own such treasures may be wearing imitation jewelry in public. Precious stones, especially those large enough to turn heads attract thieves. Those who have the means would probably lock the real gems in safe, and have a duplicate of their jewelry made using cubic zirconia or other imitation rocks. These fakes are worn in public to protect the real jewels.

In the past paste stones were used to mimic precious gemstones. In fashionable circles, semi-precious stones were used in lieu of the very expensive precious gems. Later the the fashion world embraced swarovski crystals to add dazzle in a refined way to clothing, bags and now these crystals are used in gorgeous jewelry as well. Such crystal jewelry make great alternatives to jewelry studded with precious gemstones.
