Diamanti-IX Vs. CZ
Once you've realized that purchasing an Eco-friendly, reasonably priced diamond alternative is the responsibly smart thing to do, the last thing you want – especially with an engagement ring – is for your purchase to look fake or to have it become dull and fall apart within a few months. Not only would this be a complete waste of your hard-earned money, but it would also be incredibly embarrassing.
With our Diamanti-IX, you have nothing to fear, and no need to worry. Our incredible Diamanti sails high above other Simulants and Cubic Zirconia when compared side by side – See for yourself...the CZ/Simulant is on the right.
Simulants and standard Cubic Zirconia (CZ) are mass produced, cheaply imported and created for low-end jewelry. These stones can easily be seen with the naked eye as non-diamond stones and will quickly show signs of wear. The Diamanti exists in a class all its own. Using highly advanced techniques and created from a patent specialized formula with only the finest materials, these incredible stones are designed to look and perform exactly like genuine mined diamonds.
The Diamanti-IX further distances itself from these stones in quality and performance by featuring a surface enhancement utilizing CL-3 (complex layering - version3). This layering is comprised of an Optical Layer and completed with an Ultra-Pure 90% Diamond Protective Layer, endowing each stone with incredible diamond lustre and increased durability. In other words, while a diamond rates a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, a Diamanti-IX rates 9.1 overall. In comparison, most simulants and standard CZs, which are simply made from zirconium and oxygen, only rate somewhere between 7.5 to 8.0.
Standard CZs and other simulants are poorly made with inferior materials that easily attract dirt, skin oils and everyday products. These contaminants are quickly absorbed into the stone, resulting in a loss of luster and increasing cloudiness over time.
Our special patented process and complex layering ensures that a Diamanti-IX will never lose its luster or fade over time. Your Diamanti-IX is guaranteed to sparkle brilliantly in any light for years to come.
As demonstrated by their “un-faceted” or “glassy” look and their poor ability to reflect light, CZs and other simulants are machine cut and not polished or finished by hand.
Because they are created to exacting diamond standards, Diamanti IX stones are hand-cut by renowned diamond cutters to Ideal/Excellent proportions, allowing light to travel throughout for intense diamond sparkle and brilliance. They are then expertly polished, further enhancing their fire for true diamond realism.
Most standard CZs are set in lightweight silver or gold electroplating that will eventually fade and tarnish with daily wear. Pieces made with CZ look fake, like costume jewelry, and can easily be spotted as fakes by most of us, even at a distance.
Each and every Quorri Brand Piece, however, is hand-set in exquisite Solid 14k, 18k Gold, Palladium and 950 Platinum diamond settings. Many jewelers agree our quality of workmanship and value is second to none.
