nykkee :  I wear CZ earrings at times.  And don’t care what they look like because of the fact that it’s just earrings.

There are synthetic opals that are quite durable and beautiful. I have had one for many years that has held up fine. Colored CZ can get cloudy but may not be quite as noticable.

I’m not a hundred percent sure about their durability in relation to other synthetic stones. When I purchased it they did not mention that it was particularly delicatr and although I do not wear it everyday I have worn it quite a bit without any problems. Then again I also have a  5 Stone natural Emerald that I work quite a bit as well and have had no problems with . Admittedly I don’t treat my rings roughly or bang them around with rough jobs as I would remov them for anything like that. Synthetic emeralds would be a lovely choice,as well though and possibly better for extreme daily wear. I have an older half  eternity type band with synthetic emeralds and I don’t think anyone else would know they’re not genuine. They’ve obviously stood the test of time because I’m sure it’s at least 30 years old if not more
