Hey Bee’s!!!!! My FI and I are looking for the perfect wedding bands for my three stone engagement ring. I’ve been to several stores, but the only bands I like are thousands of dollars. A friend of mine showed my her wedding bands and they were BEAUTIFUL and sparkled!!!! She told me that her rings were CZ, and I promised I would have never known.
What are your takes on CZ bands or rings???????

I think they are great if you’re looking for a ring that looks like that but the price is too high. If I saw an eternity band I would never give it a second thought about its authenticity. As long as you get a good quality band, I’m sure it will be fine. I have a pair of earrings from berricle.com and they look lime the real deal, I’m sure you can find a band there.

I think if you’re okay with it being CZ then that is all that matters. Personally I would get a plain gold band before I got one with CZs, but thats just me.

My e-ring is a CZ and no one can tell. With the money we saved, we went to Japan for 2 weeks. Totally worth it!

@KoiKove: Good for you, a stone will not change how two people feel about each other. I love Japan I lived there for more than 10 years.

I’ve been constantly wearing a “friendship” CZ and sterling silver ring for the last 4? 5? years. As has my best friend (we’re kind of creepy like that :)). We paid £7 each for our rings.
I don’t know much about metals and gems but I think they’ve both held up really really well, not chips or scratches, sparkly. I’m kind of impressed XD
If CZ is what you want then CZ should be what you get 🙂 There’s always upgrading down the line if you feel you should have gooten a different gem.

I have an “everyday” CZ eternity band that I wear because my white gold micro-pave half-eternity bands are very delicate and high-maintenance. I’ve already had to replace one diamond that fell out. Someday, when I have a few $$ sitting aroud, I’ll get a white gold and diamond eternity band, but for now, my CZ band suits me just fine for everyday use. I wear my white gold set (e-ring + 2 bands) for special occasions only.
This my original white gold set:
And this is my e-ring with my CZ eternity band (2mm each)

This is going to be my “fancy” or “dress-up” ring (I also have a solid metal one). It’s from Berricle, and looks pretty high-quality:

@Charlotte2013: Thanks and I agree, real diamond does not equal more love. I’m half Japanese, so it meant alot to be able to introduce DH to my family and culture.
@MrsSmith2013: here is my CZ ring, plat Tacori setting with palladium wedding band

I have a three-stone CZ ring and I love it! The center stone is a CZ and the two other stones are aquamarines. I can’t tell the difference, and neither can my friends/family. My FI spent more money on a nicer palladium setting because he thought it would be easier to switch stones if I wanted to in the future.

I have some CZ band for fun and stacking. Berricle has really nice, high quality CZ bands.
Also look into diamond band pricing on Blue Nile and elsewhere on the internet, you get so much more for the money than shopping at a lot of B&M stores (especially chain stores). What style are you looking for?

@starla: I’m looking for two curve bands.

@KoiKove: Yay for another half Japanese person on here!
@MrsSmith2013: It’s up to you and your fiance. Giving me a diamond meant a lot to my fiance, and to be honest, I wanted one. My ex husband went with a ruby for my engagement ring, and we never got a band. So I wanted something different this time around. That being said, we’re going with a very small wedding because we’d rather spend the money on a house down payment than on a huge 200+ person reception. If you’re both fine with it, save the money and put that savings towards something for the both of you. Honeymoon, house fund, whatever.

@MariContrary: My engagement ring isn’t a CZ, but I was thinking we could save money with the bands. We made the mistake of planning a wedding and buying a house at the same time. He probably wouldn’t agree to the CZ bands, but we’ll see.
