New Cubic Zirconia

We've got some great Cubic Zirconia to share with you today! Cubic Zirconia is ideal for jewelry designs. Not only are they wonderfully glittery, but they're also very hard (about an 8.5 on the Mohs hardness scale) making them extremely durable and suitable for everyday wear. And affordable! Can't forget that part.

Check them out!

Faceted Rondelles 4mm, 6mm and 8mm
8mm in clear and black.
6mm in light champagne, medium champagne, black, garnet, ruby, amethyst, olive.
4mm in clear, light champagne, medium champagne, olive, amethyst, and ruby.
3mm in olive, blue, amethyst and ruby.

$31-$41 per 6 inch strand
*Except for the 4mm blue, those bad boys are $62 per 6 inch strand*

Yes, you read right. $62 per strand for those beautiful aquamarine colored CZ's. The reason? To make CZ's in different colors, manufacturers add specific minerals to produce certain colors. To make blue they add erbium and neodymium, minerals that tend to be more rare than the minerals used to make pink, purple, champagne etc.

Tear drops in black, olive, light champagne, dark champagne, ruby, garnet, light amethyst and amethyst.
$35 per 5 inch strand

Ovals in black, clear, light champagne, dark champagne, garnet and olive.
$25 per 6 inch strand
