In comparison to Cubic Zirconia Sapphires hold more value and brilliance.

 AAA Grade CZ is a manmade stone, in which its refractive index, dispersion, and hardness are extremely close to those of a natural diamond. It also creates more flashes of color, giving it a fiery and brilliant appearance. The man-made stone can also come with a cracked or milky color appearance. Cubic Zirconia (CZ) is made of synthetic zirconium dioxide in its crystalline form and has no presence of Carbon Diamond bonds such as Natural Diamonds or Created Diamond.

 Quartz/Crystal is a type of quartz that is mostly found in geodes and hollow agates. It is composed of silicon dioxide and scores a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale.

Rhinestone Originally, rhinestones were rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine, hence the name, although some were also found in areas like the Alps, today the name 'rhinestone' applies only to varieties of lead glass, known as crystal glass. Typically, crystal rhinestones have been used on costumes, apparel, and jewelry. Crystal rhinestones are produced mainly in Austria by Swarovski and in the Czech Republic by Preciosa and a few other glassworks in northern Bohemia.

 Pearl A pearl is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries.

 

 Acrylic is an important material used in fashion jewelry and clothing. Due to its transparency, lightweight, crumble resistant, low prices and easily manufactured, acrylic is the most commonly used in jewelry and accessories.

 Ceramic is an inorganic, non-metallic, often crystalline oxide, nitride or carbide material. Some elements, such as carbon or silicon, may be considered ceramics. Ceramic materials are brittle, hard, strong in compression, and weak in shearing and tension. They withstand chemical erosion that occurs in other materials subjected to acidic or caustic environments. Ceramics generally can withstand very high temperatures, such as temperatures that range from 1,000 °C to 1,600 °C (1,800 °F to 3,000 °F).

 Glass is a non-crystalline amorphous solid that is often transparent and has widespread practical, technological, and decorative usage. Glass was used extensively during the Middle Ages. Anglo-Saxon glass has been found across England during archaeological excavations of both settlement and cemetery sites. Glass in the Anglo-Saxon period was used in the manufacture of a range of objects including vessels, beads, and windows, and was also used in jewelry.
