For centuries with each new change in the times there was a change in ladies fashion. In the beginning there was no fashion and no choices to make unless it was, “shall I wear the brown one today or the other brown one?” Clothes had to be tied with small rope or heavy threads just to keep them on. Major changes in the fashion industry have happen over the years. Many of us have seen the pre-mini skirt phase, the mini-skirt and hot pants phase, the maxi-skirt phase and the list goes on. We have seen a lot of changes in our own lifetimes. With each new season comes a new idea in fashion, or sometimes an old idea spruced up. The fashion industry keeps making room for those new ideas.
The same thing has happened with jewelry over the years. New ideas and new materials to be used in jewelry have help make the jewelry of today what it is. Jewelry is not a simple ornament, it is a fashion statement. Accessories are important to a women’s wardrobe and if men would admit it to their wardrobe too.
The designers of today have come up with some stunning creations. We get a glimpse of them as they are walking on the red carpet. The price tag is so astronomical it would take us two lifetimes to pay for them.
However, there is an alternative; Because of the high fashion pieces we have seen on the red carpet and in other situations, there is a huge demand on cubic zirconia to mimic these lovely works of art. Cubic zirconia could be on the fast track to becoming a girl’s next best friend because of the availability and the price. They look so much like diamonds is it impossible for the average person to tell the difference, and they give us a very appealing option to the real diamonds on the market.
Silver jewelry is becoming more popular because of its price when compared to the price of platinum. Silver jewelry has a quality gold can not match. Silver can be very subtle in bring out features of a stone or a design. It seems to have a very delicate look about it and when coupled with a cubic zirconia together they are transformed into something awe inspiring. Before the creation of cubic zirconia, silver has been used for years in the making of fine jewelry. You can find silver in many more places than in the past because of its increased popularity. Today you can find silver jewelry in almost every jewelry store.
When you put a cubic zirconia in a sterling silver setting, the results are stunning and well worth the price. This is the type of ornamental jewelry that appeals to women the most. The two compliment each other beautifully, and if a woman chooses to have a stone with some color, the cubic zirconia comes in a wide variety of colors. The coupling of sterling silver and a cubic zirconia colored stone or the most common white stone is a beautiful combination.
