Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Minnie Driver, and Angelina Jolie have made it known they will only wear synthetic diamonds, such as cubic zirconia to many of the red carpet events. They are protesting the use of forced child labor in the mining of the so called “blood diamonds”.
In the city of Tumkur the jeweler entrusted with the creation of the tiaras for Miss India-Universe, Miss India-World, and Miss India-Earth winner has been doing this since 2004. The owner says the tiaras consist of 22-carat gold, finest cubic zirconia stones, diamonds and precious colored stones.
Suzanne Somers, the actress turned entrepreneur, purchased the design of a Harry Winston bracelet. Made with diamonds the bracelet probably retails for about one million dollars. She has instead made the same bracelet grid using cubic zirconia so she can sell it for only $189.00.
Cubic zirconia jewelry and the stones themselves have been getting more and more attention. People will become more and more interested in cubic zirconia jewelry. If they have never seen it before, they will make it a point to look for it during their next shopping spree. Once they see the beauty of the cubic zirconia in beautiful gold, sterling silver or platinum setting, their eyes will become wide with surprise. The price tag will hook them completely.
When they learn about all the options a consumer has to pick from when it comes to cubic zirconia jewelry, they will be making their lists for gift giving or they might even find something for themselves. With cubic zirconias coming in colored stones increases the selection of the consumer to be even larger than it is with the white cubic zirconia. They will look like someone’s birthstone. Birthstone rings were very popular at one time and I don’t think they have lost much in the way of public interest.
With the prices of some things as high as they are the price of the cubic zirconia is like a breath of fresh air. The public will become more and more cost conscious. The public already wants the most they can get for their money, but I believe it could reach the point where cubic zirconia jewelry will be much more common than diamonds and some other precious stones. People are always looking for a good buy and I believe with cubic zirconia jewelry, everyone gets a good buy.
