CZ Stones are a Sustainable Girl's Best Friend

CZ Stones are a Sustainable Girl's Best Friend

You don’t need to be an expert to know the diamond industry isn't eco-friendly. It's the exact opposite, actually. It's pretty harmful in a variety of ways. Downsides to diamond mining include erosion, deforestation, and ecosystem destruction. They have to dig giant pits, build roads, run heavy machinery, and set off explosions in order to mine the coveted stone. This ruins ecosystems, as previously stated, and can even kill animals. Now I’m not much of a diamond girl to begin with, but knowing what the process is actually like just turns me off even more. In a world where diamonds reign, where diamonds are considered king, we need a sustainable alternative.

This brings us to CZ stones, also known as cubic zirconia. I know what you’re thinking: it’s what you get when you can't afford the real deal. But it has its place and I'm here to plead its case. So maybe a CZ engagement ring isn’t your thing, but do you really need diamond earrings or a diamond necklace? CZ stones are made in a laboratory and the only way you can tell the difference between these stones and diamonds is through an expert. Because they're made in a laboratory, they don't bring the environmental impact that diamond mining does. That makes them wholly sustainable. For this reason alone, CZ stones are the better choice.

They're also just as beautiful, shimmering in the light. Like I said, the average person can't tell the difference between the two. That means you get the benefit of the look without the environmental harm or high prices. They're super affordable. On top of this, they're just as versatile. They can be used In a variety of fashions for a variety of jewelry items. With all of this in mind, why wouldn't you want to go with this eco-friendly alternative?
