I honestly love my stand in ring more than my actual ring, which is hilarious to me. It’s a sterling silver ring (same as my e-ring) with Swarovski zirconia (not crystals), and it’s honestly stunning. I literally wear it more than my e-ring (which has a Rose de France amethyst center stone, with white sapphire accent stones). Here’s my stand-in!

These are my stunt rings. My husband went a little nuts when we found out what white sapphire is.

Cz stand in! It’s good for everyday but I really do still love my diamonds of course. I have high settings on both of my actual erings so I prefer not to wear them everyday. The rainbow ring is all gemstones.. one of my faves!

mamabat :  if you buy a cheaper cz then some people have had good results from baking it in the oven and it  had more diamond like depth after baking.

ahsoka :  Thank you! I’ve had it for a few months now and just can’t stop wearing it lol. We got it as a stand in while my original engagement ring was being resized, and I absolute fell in love with it!

I’m toying with baking it, so please let me know how it goes for you! At worst, I do it, it gets destroyed, and I spend like $40 to replace it. 😂

ahsoka :  don’t bake that Rose gold ring if it’s plated, which I assume it is if it’s a CZ. The color of the plating will fade. I’ve baked white gold or silver with no problems but the “rose” plating will change. Hope it’s not too late!

Baking makes a big difference in how CZ looks. I usually bake 2 or 3 times. The stones look much more crisp and defined. Just bake white gold or real 14k yellow gold or silver, not anything rose plated.

I often use my opal as a stand in! (Usually without the chevron)

I have baked CZ’s! I like the results – it does seem to deepen the look but I dont think it really warms the color much. I did bake a Chris CZ that was a warmer stone and it brought out too much rainbow…looks almost like a moissanite with a lot of rainbow colors in the stone. Usually, that doesnt happen. Oh well….it did a good job on my other CZ’s. I wish there was a way to decrease the color flashes in all CZ’s.
