Belly Ring Heart Dangle with CZ Gems

Many types of body jewelry available feature Cubic Zirconia (or CZ) gems in varying sizes and shapes.  CZ is a crystallized form of zicronium dioxide (ZrO2), a synthesized material that is optically flawless and very hard.  CZ approximates the qualities and appearance of a diamond so closely that it is used as a substitute for diamonds in jewelry of all kinds.

Since 1976, CZ has become the biggest competitor to diamonds in the jewelry business, and has become the primary choice for body jewelry due to it’s beauty and economical price.
