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.
