Luster and brilliance are very quantifiable, it is called Refractive Index, which is higher in a diamond than CZ. Secondly, dispersion (fire) index although is higher in CZ it is of a different quality. And here is why (taken from BTD educational page: “CZ is composed of larger molecules than diamond Zirconium Vs Carbon. Thus it slows down light more….” And it has blue haze for that reason too. It is never going to have the same QUALITY of fire as diamond has. It is different on atomic level unfortunately.
I don’t want to get into a discussion with you over CZ being superior to diamond, as it is just tedious. Like I said to you, feel free to enjoy the CZ, there is some well cut CZ out there which replicates diamond better than other CZ. However, to me it doesn’t come close to a diamond. Personal preference!

I’ve suspected it with some posters, but I can’t prove it (or, I don’t have the energy to try to). Others I think are just women showing their rings. I’ve never suspected you to be other than you’ve said 🙂

I feel you on having the energy for some threads. I have to just be like “I’m out!” sometimes because I can’t handle it.
Maybe I will just start posting random unrelated pictures in threads that get heated. That could go one of two ways. Really good, or really bad. Haha.

I think the reason some threads get heated is because people just don’t seem to read properly other people’s posts. That makes them make assumptions about what other people are trying to express, that in turn puts the back up of those about whom the assumptions are made. Sad, really. Just sharing an opinion really. That is why to me it sometimes feels like someone is “jumping at me from nowhere” without even having bothered to read my post. I get it what you mean by “I am out!” , it just gets too much.

This is what I thought of when you say “puts the back up”

Okay you guys looks like this thread has gotten off course. I’m going to go ahead and close this thread. Happy Sunday!
