WHAT IS ZIRCONIA?
Zirconia is a Created Stone and the best simulated diamond in the world the material has good hardness, ranking 8.5 on the Mohs Scale. Swarovski Zirconia are set to bring a touch of brilliance to Bridge- & Fine Jewelry and products beyond.
THE PURE BRILLIANCE CUT
For the first time in history, Swarovski has applied ideal diamond-cut standards to zirconia. Swarovski’s Pure Brilliance Cut makes Swarovski Zirconia the finest diamond simulant on the market. The Pure Brilliance Cut offers the same brightness as a Tolkowsky ideal cut, recognized as the world’s most perfect diamond cut.
Every Swarovski Zirconia is marked with a microscopic 'SWAROVSKI ZIRCONIA' laser engraving to ensure Swarovski authenticity. The laser engraving is invisible to the naked eye and does not impair the brilliance of the stone.
What is Swarovski Zirconia?
Although Swarovski is renowned for precision-cut crystal, the company has been cutting genuine gemstones and created stones for many decades. In 1976, Swarovski started to cut zirconia, being the first company on the market to offer a machine-cut exponent of this synthetic stone. Ever since, Swarovski Zirconia has been known as the most precisely cut zirconia on the market, available in a wide variety of exquisite shapes, sizes, and colors.
What makes Swarovski Zirconia so special?
Across the globe, the name Swarovski is synonymous with the art of precision cutting. All stones from Swarovski are masterfully crafted to reveal their true inner brilliance. The company is also famous for constant innovation and these two principles come together in its revolutionary cut for zirconia: the Pure Brilliance cut. For the first time in history, Swarovski managed to cut a zirconia that was as brilliant as a diamond. By strictly adhering to the exacting standards for grading diamond cut quality from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, the company was able to develop a cut that equals the Tolkowsky diamond – the most brilliant diamond cut in the world. This makes the Pure Brilliance Swarovski Zirconia the most diamond-like Zirconia that is available on the market today. It is exclusively cut by Swarovski in Austria, complying with the country’s high social and environmental manufacturing standards.
How does Swarovski Zirconia compare to diamonds?
Pure Brilliance Swarovski Zirconia is the most diamond like Zirconia on the market – an excellent diamond imitation for use in jewelry. The two materials share a great number of similarities and are very difficult to distinguish from one another. The very high refractive index and perfect cut of Swarovski Zirconia imitate the brilliance and fire of the purest diamonds. However, diamonds are naturally occurring gemstones, whereas Swarovski Zirconia is a laboratory-created material. Diamonds are the hardest minerals that exist with a hardness of 10 on the Mohs scale. Swarovski Zirconia is still very hard, reaching a rating of 8.5. In jewelry, Swarovski Zirconia is used in rings, necklaces, pendants, earrings, and bracelets and is often set in precious metals, just like natural diamonds. Swarovski Zirconia is also used in other industries, including eyewear, consumer electronics and writing instruments.
