Vintage estate cubic zirconium brilliant round diamond solitaire engagement ring with a silver, white gold or platinum colored band and setting and an approximate 1/2-Carat stone set in a four-prong setting. Incised on the inside of the band with "CA". (c. 1950s)
Cubic Zirconium (cubic zirconia) is well known as the best diamond simulate available today. Cubic Zirconium has successfully established itself as the high quality and affordable diamond substitute in today's fashionable jewelry market. The untrained and naked eye cannot distinguish the difference between a real diamond and Cubic Zirconium. Even gemologists cannot tell the difference unless various testing and examination is done. Cubic Zirconium is colorless in its pure state.
This ring measures a size 8 which can easily and inexpensively be re-sized by your local jeweler for a perfect fit. This elegant ring combines the radiance of Cubic Zirconium with a silver or platinum colored band and setting to achieve the look of fine jewelry at a fraction of the cost.
Gently used estate diamond ring with some infinitesimal marks from wear and an absolutely brilliant sparkle, not captured by the photographs!
