Fauw Fabulous Diamonds

January 9, 2006


Remember Beyonce at the Oscars in 2005?She sported what appeared to be very large diamonds..but they were not! They were Swarowski crystals!


Paris Hilton has been sen lately wearing a 24 carat CZ replica of the ring that Latsis bought her as a engagement ring.


Experts say that while real diamonds have flaws, cubic zirconia ,(CZ) does not.CZ is man made using zirconium oxide and calcium oxide orytrium.


A stone that really makes it hard to tell if it is the real thing is Moissanite. It's made and it's made from a rare mineral, silicon from carbon crystals.
