Cubic zirconia earrings have all the sparkle and shine as diamond earrings, without a hefty price tag. They are very popular choices when it comes to heartfelt gifts or ‘treat yourself’ moments!

You may have a few questions about cubic zirconia earrings that you are curious about, which is why we at DEMI+CO have put together this useful blog post to answer our most frequently asked questions and explain why cubic zirconia stud earrings are a fabulous accessory for any occasion.

“Pleased with quality, design & price. Fast delivery.”


Is Cubic Zirconia good for earrings?

When it comes to choosing gemstones for jewellery, especially earrings, cubic zirconia is an excellent choice. Primarily, a cubic zirconia earring is a perfect alternative to a diamond earring, due to its resemblance, versatility and reasonable costs. Cubic zirconia is often set in valuable metals to create beautiful real silver earrings, and even gold or platinum earrings. Cubic zirconia can also be purchased in different colours which is created through an oxidation process. This creates gorgeous stones which resemble other jewels and gemstones to wear as jewellery.

What's the difference between drop and dangle earrings?

Although they may sound the same, there is a difference between drop earrings and dangle earrings. Our diamante drop earrings hang elegantly just below the earlobe and are stationary, which means they do not move when you walk, swing your head or dance the night away. These give a subtle, classy look and are an excellent addition to any jewellery collection. Our dangle earrings, on the other hand, swing back and forth or side to side which means they catch the light wonderfully on the dancefloor. Dangle cubic zirconia earrings typically hang below the earlobe and move, which makes them a great statement piece or lovely unusual silver earrings!

What are long drop earrings called?

Dangle sterling silver earrings are a must-have item of jewellery for anybody who loves to make a style statement. Dangles are a more complex version of drop earrings, and when thinking about long drop earrings, it is more likely you are thinking of dangle earrings. Both drop earrings and dangle earrings are the same in that the hang down vertically below the ear, but there is one main difference. Drop earrings are typically stationary in style, so that they don’t move around when you move, whereas dangle earrings are usually larger and bulkier and are free to move back and forth. Dangle earrings can be any length, which is great because it gives a much larger scope for designs, meaning we can create some truly unique long silver earrings for our customers to enjoy.

Why is cubic zirconia cheap?

Cubic zirconia is often very inexpensive due to it being a synthetic gemstone which is mass-produced. Unlike expensive and precious gemstones, cz stud earrings can be worn every day without fear of wear and tear or damage due to the durability of cubic zirconia. A cut and polished one carat cubic zirconia stone will cost a fraction of the price in comparison to precious gemstones, which make them a really popular choice for jewellery making to allow jewellers to create gorgeous pieces of jewellery that won’t break the bank for their customers.

When can you wear drop earrings?

However, cz drop earrings are a timeless classic so they are usually worn on special occasions or evening events. The sophistication of a stunning drop earring means it looks fabulous with a classy undo and a stylish cocktail dress. Many people choose alternatives to wear during the day, such as a pair of cute cz stud earrings or a chic pair of diamante huggie hoop earrings. It all depends on personal preference and you should wear them whenever feels comfortable for you.

What type of earrings are best for sensitive ears?

If you have sensitive skin or sensitive ears, it is best to choose a metal which is less reactive so that it doesn’t cause irritation. Platinum and stainless steel are the best metals for hypoallergenic jewellery, which is why, along with plastic, they are often the choice for initial and new ear piercings. If you are unsure on what would work best with you, it is best to have a chat with your piercer who will be able to advise on what the best metals are for your ears.

What is the most popular style of earrings?

When it comes to cubic zirconia earrings, there are many popular earrings styles to choose from. These types of earrings are not exclusive to cubic zirconia earrings and can be purchased in many different styles, materials and gemstones. In our experience, we have found that the most popular earring styles are studs, which includes our casual cubic zirconia square stud earrings.

Do cubic zirconia lose their sparkle?

There are a few things that can cause cubic zirconia’s brilliant shine to dull over time, but there are also some really simple and easy ways that you can restore your jewellery to its original condition. An accumulation of surface scratches can cause cubic zirconia jewellery to lose its sparkle and any chemical that comes into contact with CZ can cause it to look dull. Thankfully, if you care for your cubic zirconia earrings well, they should be easy to restore. Cubic zirconia is a hard material, so it doesn’t easily scratch unless it comes into contact with other materials and metals that are of a similar or higher hardness level. Chemicals such as hair spray, body lotion, cosmetics and perfumes can cause damage to cubic zirconia, but to keep them looking shiny you should clean them once a month. To do this, use mild dish soap and water with a clean soft cloth and then ensure you dry your jewellery thoroughly afterward.


Micro Pave Drop Cz Earrings

These super glam drop earrings feature a really unique and quirky design. These earrings really have the wow-factor and will be a wonderful addition to any jewellery collector’s cabinet!

Can I shower with cubic zirconia?

Although cubic zirconia gems look like real diamonds, they are not. Diamonds are tough and resilient but cubic zirconia gems lack this resilience so it is strongly recommended that you take off any cubic zirconia jewellery before you step foot in the shower. This is the same for going in the bath, hot tub or going swimming in a pool or the sea. You should avoid getting your cubic zirconia earrings wet at all costs, they should only have contact with water when you are cleaning them, but even this should be for a very short amount of time to avoid damage to your lovely jewellery.


Micro Pave’ Fancy Cz Drop Earrings

These fancy drop earrings are a real statement piece! The unique shape of these stunning earrings will catch the attention of everybody. Stand out from the crowd in these dreamy cz drop earrings.

 unusual silver earrings

Does CZ sparkle like a diamond?

Cubic zirconia gems do not shine with the same brilliance as a diamond, but they do still have their own unique sparkle. This is due to the way they shine, diamonds shine with pure white light which gives them that traditional diamond sparkle, whereas white cubic zirconia diamonds give off rainbow colours. They are both exceptional choices, but for very different reasons.


Silver Fancy Cz Drops

These striking silver drop earrings have a sleek design, which falls gracefully below your earlobe to create a very feminine and elegant look. These earrings really are a special choice for cocktail parties and fancy dinner parties.

One of the topics that gets bought up most frequently is the topic of inflammation, as we are not medical professionals many of our customers come to us about alternatives to medication for inflammation.
