Not too long ago Lady Sarah Ferguson was given a beautiful ruby engagement ring worth millions of dollars. If you think however that only the Royals or very wealthy, can afford to wear a ring like that, you are very wrong. There is a way to get wedding sets for a fraction of the price of what celebrities pay and still have a set of rings that look like they are worth a fortune. At some point, especially with the economy the way it is, most of us have to face the fact that mined stones and yellow gold have simply gotten to expensive for jewelry use for most people.
There are alternatives however. One great one is to use white gold instead of yellow gold. White gold is not only less expensive but it also allows you to use a wider range of colors when you are selecting your gems. Darker colors, like the brilliant red of rubies or the deep green of emeralds will lose a great deal of their luster when surrounded by yellow gold. These gems look a lot better when surrounded by a white metal, like white gold or silver.
Cubic zirconia stones are chemically identical to mined stones and are completely undistinguishable with the naked eye. This makes the so perfect for substitutions that many celebrities and public figures use them in place of their real jewelry, which they save for private occasions. Not only do CZ wedding sets look just as real and beautiful as mined stones they are a great deal less expensive.
This makes white gold cubic zirconia wedding sets not only a great style move because it allows you to be creative and use other color stones but you can save as much as 70% on white gold cubic zirconia wedding sets over the price of mined stones and yellow gold.
