cdpslh913059487:  Definitely #2!  I’m confused how you would get a CZ and still pay nearly $1,000?

I didn’t understand half of this post. But anyways, fellow CZ bee here. I like the first one better :).

cdpslh913059487:  have you checked out “lab created” diamonds.  they have some great prices on erings and sets on ebay. 

cz often get cloudy over time but lab diamonds remain clear and clean. 

i got a gorgeous lab diamond many, many years ago as a “deterrent” ring (so guys don’t hit on me).  i got so many compliments on it and even though i haven’t worn it in 7+ years, the diamond is still gorgeous.  seriously, i paid less than $100 on it.

Actual lab-created diamonds cost about the same amount as an earth-mined diamond. If you see a “lab-created diamond” for a cheap price, it’s not a diamond. It’s a diamond simulant of some sort.

cdpslh913059487:  I really love the second set.. I think that is a nice size stone. But, why do you need to return a diamond set you already have? Is it not what you wanted??

cmbr:  this is true.

 

OP, I’m afraid I didn’t really understand your original post.  All those rings are quite pretty – CZ’s an underratred stone – it’s very pretty and fairly durable.  You just have to clean it often so it doesn’t look cloudy.  If you want to get something that’s a “forever” ring for a lower price, you can also get 10k lab sapphire rings for about the same price through Overstock.

I like the second one the best. It’s hard to tell carat size in a picture. If the description says 1.5 or 2 CTs than thats what it will be?

Carat size is carat size, it doesn’t matter what the stone is. If it’s a 1.5 carat CZ it will be the same size as a 1.5 carat diamond. I have a CZ eternity band because we didn’t want to spend a lot of money right now, cost me $65 and I love it.

jny1179:  it does matter what kind of stone it is. not between a CZ and diamond, but a 1.5 carat weight sapphire is smaller than a 1.5 carat weight diamond.

jny1179:  carat actually refers to weight, not size – so the size of a 1 carat stone can vary quite a bit between different types of gems

I believe CZs are lighter than diamonds, so a 1 ct  cz will be bigger than a 1 ct diamond? Hope that helps.
