SILVER CUBIC ZIRCONIA SET DROP PENDANT
Bright sparkling Silver and Cubic Zirconia drop pendant. I would wear this pendant to a wedding, prom, on a cruise; it's occasion jewellery. Made from Sterling Silver, the long base of this pendant creates an almost lariat effect. Two round clusters drop from the bale, interspersed with claw set single stones, ending in a pear-cut stone with a halo the whole has an Art Deco, lavish feel.
Length 47mm including bale. 8mm wide.
This listing is for the pendant only; if you require a chain also, I would suggest this one.
There are a few key features of Cubic Zirconia that distinguish it from Diamond:
Hardness. This causes sharp edges to facets in cut crystals to dull and rounds off in CZ, while with Diamond the edges remain sharp.
Cut: Cubic Zirconia gemstones may be cut differently from Diamonds. The facet edges can be rounded or "smooth".
Colour: A Cubic Zirconia is often entirely colourless: equivalent to a perfect "D" on Diamond's colour grading scale.
Thermal conductivity: Cubic Zirconia is a thermal insulator whereas Diamond is the most powerful thermal conductor. This is the way most Diamond testers work; by testing thermal conductivity.
