Cubic Zirconia Engagement Ring- The Johnnie (Customizable Cathedral-set Round Cut Solitaire with Decorative Prong Basket)


Unless the world undergoes a radical transformation, the cultural norm of presenting an engagement RING gift during a marriage proposal isn’t going to end any time soon. Sure, there are guys out there who 'pop the question' for engagement without a ring. Some eschew a gift of any kind. But those are few. Others give a joke ring made of paper or candy, and these more spontaneous proposals that 'just happen' before he could even shop can be endearing. Many more men, however, have decided  to give a ring but just not a diamond ring. These are guys who say "NO THANKS!" to the 'tradition' the diamond cartel created with skillful advertising. Sapphires. Emeralds. Rubies. These 3 other precious stones (which coincidentally are actually rarer in nature than diamonds) have been engagement runners-up to the better-marketed natural diamond for years. And these days, there right in the top 5 mix is also cubic zirconia-- perhaps the most well-known, and, in our humble opinion-- the best dollar-for-dollar diamond simulant ever manufactured.

Welcome to the official home of cubic zirconia online! Striking in style and delicate in design, this precision-machined prong-set solitaire Round Cut ring will be crafted in your choice of White, Rose or Yellow Gold, Palladium, .925 Sterling Silver or pure 950 Platinum. The classic contour-enhancing, tapered-band design will highlight your choice of a 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.0, 1.50, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 or 3.5 carat diamond-quality Round Cut CZ center stone. We call the cubic zirconia we use in our high-end finished jewelry "diamond quality" for this reason: neither you or anyone in your life, nor even a diamond  jeweler with decades of experience can tell the difference between our man-made 5A cubic zirconia stone and a flawless mined diamond with the naked eye. Our promise to you is that the two are visually indistinguishable without special tools or conditions. The Johnnie is a contemporary ring that will make the traditionalist smile, too, whether given as a promise ring, purity ring, or engagement ring. Enjoy the prong-enhancement with special decorated basket. Get The Johnnie engagement ring as a stand-alone or together with the matching anniversary band to complete the cubic zirconia bridal set!
