The rare fancy color diamonds are enjoying increased popularity amongst those who choose diamonds for their jewelry. In the same way, colored cubic zirconia gemstones can be selected for setting in men’s Cz rings. The color in the cubic zirconia rings is a result of certain trace elements being added during the manufacturing process. The resulting color depends upon the added elements. The gemstones in the completed men’s Cz rings include vibrant choices of red, purple, golden brown, blue and green among others. The benefit of using fancy color cubic zirconia gemstones in the settings is the vibrancy of the colors and the consistency with which they are attained.
Diamond Colors vs Cz
Fancy colors found in men’s Cz rings are a popular alternative to fancy color diamonds for some of the same reasons that white cubic zirconia rings are popular. Natural diamonds found in nature’s fancy colors are extremely rare. Many of the fancy colors are not clear but are muddy or yellowish rather than the beautiful and desirable hues. There is a remarkable consistency in the cubic zirconia colors. The color remains constant from stone to stone so that if you want a bright blue gemstone, you add a precise measurement of the appropriate component during the manufacturing process and you will always get the same color in result.
Colorless Cz stones
The most valuable diamonds other than the fancy color diamonds are known as white diamonds. These gemstones are graded according to how nearly clear they are. Clear diamonds in the natural state are very rare. Most have colors of some sort, ranging from yellow to brown to gray.
With men’s Cz rings, however, all the gemstones rate a ‘D’ on the scale that measures color. The cubic zirconia gemstones are virtually colorless.
It should be noted that the colors found in men’s Cz rings are much more vibrant than those found in fancy natural diamonds. When you add the brighter colors in cubic zirconia gemstones to the higher refractive rate in Cz, you end up with a gemstone that flashes brilliantly colored fire. The particular color will depend upon the additives during the manufacturing process. The fancy color gemstones can be paired with various metals in the body of the ring for a wide range of options in ring styles and fashions.
Why Colored Cubic Zirconia?
Many men choose cubic zirconia rings because the price is lower than equivalent weight in diamond gemstones. Because the quality is actually greater in many ways than natural diamonds, there really isn’t much reason to pay more for a smaller diamond or one that is lower on the color scale than cubic zirconia. Men’s Cz rings can be selected as wedding bands or as decorative accessories to a fashionable clothing look. Whether colored or clear, cubic zirconia gemstones can be utilized in serious ring designs or in designs that are a bit more whimsical. You don’t have to limit yourself to just one ring either. You can purchase several so that you match your mood or your activities for the day.
