What’s the difference between Zircon and Cubic Zirconia

There really is nothing like a diamond – but there is something close. Zircon (or Zirconium Silicate) is as brilliant as the highest quality diamond at a fraction of the cost.

Zircon is often confused with Cubic Zirconia which is synthetic and also a popular replacement for diamonds.

We always recommend going for the real thing when you’re investing in something big, but Zircon can be a great replacement.

We’ve also met some brides-to-be who have Zircon rings until they’ve saved for the diamond they want. You can also preserve jewelry you’ve inherited that may have lost some of their stones.
