Beyond great entertainment that brought in $170+ million US dollars at the box office globally, few movies have been more influential in stirring a call for change than this 5-time Academy Award nominated film.
For humanity: the world became more aware of the human rights abuses, dangerous labor practices, terrorist funding, money laundering, and environmental destruction wrought by the mined natural diamond industry.
For our business: new customers had yet another powerful reason to choose our 5A diamond-quality CubicZirconia.com CZ stones instead of buying a mined, natural diamond.
For the marriage-minded, engagement proposal planner with a future fianceé on the fence about choosing natural mined diamonds or an alternative: he/she can simply have a movie night and watch Blood Diamond together (you won’t have to say much, and if you haven’t seen it…he/she will want to talk after watching).
Ants are thrifty and efficient, work hard and save, exercise plenty, look to the future and manage to get everything they can out of everything they’ve got. Grasshoppers prioritize rest, play and partying, and tend to spend more than they earn (eat more than they harvest). It could be because they’re lazier and more wasteful than ants, though in a judgment-free zone we’d just say they prefer to enjoy today without worries about tomorrow.So what happens when an ant (saver) marries a grasshopper (spender)?It should be pretty obvious that a marriage between the an ant and a grasshopper CAN be troublesome and MAY end badly in our opinion...unless the 2 agree to do some or all of these 9 things.
Why are CubicZirconia.com clearance jewelry pieces so much less expensive than our normal website retail prices for the same item?

We were excited to announce the 2015 acquisition of CZCompany.com, but this 2021 acquisition of WholesaleCZ.com is an even more important investment that is going to make our company stronger, and better positioned in the marketplace.
A common question we get is how much information and details do we need in order to make a custom ring (or other piece of jewelry) exactly as the customer wants it.
The short answer: we want as much information as the customer can conveniently provide us based on what he/she knows (or thinks they do). The more details we have, the easier it is for the custom jewelry team to nail the custom ring design...and do it SOONER in the back-and-forth process as we communicate with the potential customer. The other side of the question is, “Can we make this work with very little detail and/or no pictures or examples from the customer?”As that Obama-era U.S. Presidential campaign sticker on one of my colleague’s car back bumper says: YES WE CAN!
How are diamonds mined? What is the environmental impact of diamond mining? Are there any environmental benefits of using Cubic Zirconia instead?
Bad news. www.Emitations.com as a company appears to be out of business (as of writing). Good news: the owners of CubicZirconia.com are offering a special, first-purchase discount to new customers that previously did business with Emitations.com.
Mass retailers that sell jewelry are always getting caught red-handed selling items manufactured with materials that are suspect. The result? Toxic jewelry.

Choosing the size of your ring’s center stone – is bigger always better?
It's not really because he doesn't want to buy you jewelry. He does. He really does. It's just that there's quite a number of things that also go with that decision. Understanding these questions will lead to you helping him buy you that ring you've been secretly eyeing forever.
Make no mistake. Although our stones are imitation diamonds, the precious metals we use in our jewelry items are exactly that – PRECIOUS.
Not yet decided on the right shape of the center stone of your engagement ring? No problem! Let’s see if we can talk through it together.
Did you know a piece of finished jewelry that is complete except for setting stones – example: earrings, ring or pendant – is called a "mounting"? Every single one of our pieces of jewelry can be purchased as a “mounting” without stones. And of course, you can do so less expensively than the piece fully-set with our CZ stones. You don’t need to be a jeweler/jewelry company for a B2B purchase, either; anyone can buy the mountings we manufacture with a few conditions.
