The Nexus Diamond vs Cubic Zirconia

The Nexus Diamond is an heirloom-quality stone. Cubic Zirconia (CZ) is not. The Nexus Diamond is superior to CZ in four key ways: hardness, coating, durability and guarantees.

HARDNESS

Nearly as hard as a diamond, will cut glass, and will last forever.

COATING

Coated in a proprietary formula that makes it impervious to contaminants and increases resistance to scratches.

DURABILITY

Will last forever and can be handed down to future generations, just like a diamond.

GUARANTEES

Every stone is covered by the Forever Guarantee, which states the Nexus Diamond will never chip, scratch or discolor.

HARDNESS

Soft and porous, easy to chip and facets will wear down over time.

COATING

No coating, will absorb contaminants that make it appear cloudy and dull.

DURABILITY

Usually lasts a few months before becoming dull and dirty-looking.

GUARANTEES

No guarantee coverage.

The Nexus Diamond vs Moissanite

Both the Nexus Diamond and moissanite are beautiful, heirloom quality alternatives to diamonds. Like the Nexus Diamond, moissanite is nearly as hard as diamond and will last forever—however, it has different optical properties that cause it to look quite distinct.

Long Lasting Fake Diamond

Moissanite does not look much like a diamond.

Moissanite is a gorgeous stone, but if you are looking for a diamond or diamond alternative engagement ring, then it is important to know that moissanite has its own distinctive look. It has more fire and brilliance than a diamond, which makes them beautiful but much more sparkly. This can make them easy to tell apart from a diamond, especially in the sunlight. But if you love the brilliant sparkle, then moissanite could be a great choice for you.

If you choose moissanite for your engagement ring, buy from a premier source. Charles And Colvard™ are the creators and sole U.S. manufacturers of moissanite.

The premier retailer of moissanite jewelry online is MoissaniteCo.Com. They are a reputable company with a large selection of high quality moissanite engagement rings and other fine jewelry.
