ive had numerous cx rings over the years. they all got cloudy and the center stone fell out of my last one. me dropping it probl didnt help. hehe. i have a channel set cz wedding band made out of siberian ice cz and the jeweler said they would never cloud but i think they are. sometimes they look ‘fuzzy’ next to my moissante and white sapphire rings. i love the ring tho. it is still beautiful.

Here’s my upgraded stand-in ring. It looks just like my wedding set except it is a three band.

My husband bought me this ring 3 years as a stand in ring. I wore it two or three times and a few days ago I looked at it and saw that it became very cloudy… disappointing.

This is my e-ring. My partner and I both decided we did not need diamonds. So, he got me this orange 2ct cz. Perfect, as we are having a Halloween ceremony. I LOVE it!!!!

Hello Ladies, Cubic Zirconia has come a LONG way! There are now beautiful cuts of CZ that are so close to genuine diamonds jewelers can’t even distinguish the difference! The process of cutting the stones is exactly the same so that there are just as many facets in the CZ stones as there are in diamonds. These 5A quality stones do take more time to manufacture and have a bit of a higher cost than the general CZ you are used to seeing…but for budget minded couples this is a great alternative.

I just recently got engaged on December 7th, 2014! I really love my engagement ring. It’s rhodium plated sterling silver, with a 1.7 ct CZ in the middle and on each side of the ring has four smaller CZ stones. It also came with the wedding band that has more smaller CZ’s. This is my temporary set that we will use for a few years. We will be getting married some time this year because my FH will be shipping off to Boot Camp for the Navy. We have to wait until he is done with boot camp and goes to his A school before we can get married. We will be doing a simple court house wedding. Then in a few years from then, we will hold an actual ceremony for our family and friends and then we will get my forever ring. For now I am satisfied with this Ering. I keep it cleaned with a jewelery polishing cloth made for silver and ever now and again I take warm water, mild dish soap and a soft bristled tooth brush to give the stones a good cleaning to keep it sparkling. 😀

Maybe it depends on where you get your CZ ring… I’ve had mine since June and I rarely take it off… I have done yard work, house work, dishes even car work with it on. I only take it off if I’m going to touch what seems like harsh chemicals like hair color or certain car work…. it does get dirty easily which can sometimes make it look “cloudy” but I clean it once a week (or whenever it looks dirty) with the delicate jewelry cleaner from Wal-Mart. I chose CZ because I wanted “bling” without breaking the budget or having something I’d feel guilty if something happened to it….
She’s a 1 carat center stone in a cathedral setting. If memory serves me including side stones it’s the equivalent of 1.75 carats. My only issue is finding a wedding band I like with her!!

I have 2 ct CZ ering because I thought it was wonderful way to save money. Well, I love my ring but the cleaning is a disaster. I mean when I clean it it’s so sparkly, so clear and gorgeous. After a couple weeks it gets cloudy again. When I joined the Bees I discovered Moissanite stones. Soooo I’m now looking for moissanite loose stone to reset my ring. I hope it’ll be deeper, more sparkly and not cloudy at all.
Here’s my ring:

I absolutely love mine! I’ve only had it for a month or so, and I do notice that it gets dirty easily. However, 1 minute with a mild detergent and a toothbrush fixes that, and then it’s back to sparkling beautifully!
Mine is set in 14k white gold. 1.25 ctw equivalent (center stone probably about .3 ct, if I had to guess. It’s not very big). It’s exactly the one I asked for, and only cost $200. If I ever wanted to “upgrade” my stone, I could. The setting is the forever part for me. However, as long as my stone looks beautiful and sparkles with an easy cleaning, I have no plans to replace it!
