3mm AAA Amethyst Round CZ, 1.9mm Depth
Add flashy cubic zirconia gemstones to your next jewelry design! CZs are brilliant man-made gemstones which are created in a laboratory. The difficult process to make these stones, which must reach temperatures of almost 5000℉, was perfected in the 1970’s and they quickly took off in the jewelry world, mainly as a diamond simulate. Unfortunately, by comparing the two and with some unethical workmanship mixed in, these gave cubic zirconia’s an undeserved bad reputation. CZs are stunningly beautiful gemstones with a MOH’s hardness of 8-8.5 and flashes of colors not seen in similar stones.
Create gorgeous pieces with cubic zirconia gemstones! The piece shown above is a sterling silver filigree designer drop, and after placing one amethyst CZ in the center it now is a dazzling pendant that sparkles and shines in the light. Both a tube bezel and prong setting work well with this design, however in this case, we wanted more of the stone to show through. It’s amazing how CZ’s can transform a piece!
