I can’t figure out how to share pics from here, so I have to wait until I get home to my computer but I have a bunch!!  They’re so pretty and fun, I would have used CZ or something like it forever instead of switching to diamonds, but the deal I got on my ‘upgrade’ rings was ridiculously low, lower than an empty setting plus CZ would have been.

I had a CZ ring that got really cloudy within a few months of wear. I wasn’t as careful with it as I could have been, but I don’t like taking my rings off (especially my engagement ring), so I wanted something I could shower with, do dishes with, etc.

@ellestardust:  CZ/ sterling silver ring my husband gave to me when we first started dating. It has unfortunately become very cloudy since then but it looked amazing when I got it.

My RHR is CZ.  I don’t sleep, shower, etc. with my rings (true for my diamond wedding set and my CZ RHR).

@ellestardust:  Beautiful ring!

I think CZ gets a bad reputation because

1)it gets compared to diamonds

2)there are low quality ones that can end up looking really bad

3)the whole clouding issue.

@ellestardust:  I’ve never had a CZ ring that didn’t get cloudy/dingy with time. How are you taking care of yours so that it isn’t doing that? Tips would be nice. 🙂

The only problem I have with CZ is that it gets scratched and ruined over time. That’s why I couldn’t pick CZ as a forever stone for an e-ring. I love some CZ earrings, though!

Finally got to my computer so I could share pics!

All of my rings are babied, diamonds, CZ, gemstones, etc.  The hardest part for me is taking care of the silver, which can tarnish and make the stones look dull.  I clean my CZ and silver jewelry in very warm water and dish soap and scrub with a very soft toothbrush, but only once a month or when I’m going somewhere.  I keep them on when washing my hands in public so I won’t lose them, but I never sleep or shower or do anything dirty in them (like dishes or cooking messy foods).  So far, I’ve never had a CZ go cloudy on me…maybe I’m just lucky?

Here are some of my CZ’s, the pics of the halo were taken months after wearing it (just cleaned it first) and the 3 stone pics are when it was new.  They both look exactly the same now!  The princess solitaire gets worn the most lately, as it’s set in YG.  It’s a Wink CZ, but the diamonds on the bands I wear it with are actual diamonds…they look great together!!

@ellestardust:  I’ve only had one, but it was a cheap one and it got cloudy within a year. I sleep, bathe, garden, cook and etc with all rings on so they’ve got to hold up to my lifetsyle.

I’ve got no interest in them, but perhaps it’s because I’m not educated on how nice they CAN be when they are nice.

The CZs I’ve seen over the years are in cheap settings, so that doesn’t present them well. Now, that pretty sterling setting in post #4 is one I’d like for myself. I have a sterling silver ring that I adore. I just like sterling in general.

Here’s one I bought before I got my wedding set.  My original “plraceholder” ring did turn yellow because I tend to use a lot of hand sanitizer.  So I bought this set until we got my wedding set.  I loved it so much that I switched from the princess halo I was in love with to a cushion halo set.

I pretty much wear this when I’m in the pool or going to the beach all day.  It has helped up remarkably well considering I do not take care of it like my other jewelry.  I’ve started to buy a few patterned bands and a stand-in set that resembles my wedding set more so I haven’t worn this in a month or two so it’s actually dirty in this pic.
