Princess cut is equally popular among diamond cutters, as these diamonds retain more crystal weight. According to them, princess cut diamonds retain a major part of the rough diamond, as compared to the round brilliant cut. Almost 80% of the rough diamond is retained in case of a princess cut; whereas, only 50% is retained in a round brilliant cut. So princess cut diamonds are cheaper, when compared to round brilliant cut diamonds. Rough diamonds that come in the shape of octahedron crystals (like two pyramids joined at the base) are used for making princess cut diamonds. In case of other diamond cuts, only a single diamond is made from a rough diamond, whereas two princess cut diamonds can be obtained from one rough diamond. This again means very less wastage of the original rough stone.
Diamonds are more bright in comparison to cubic zirconia. It is due to the fact that their refractive index is 2.41, whereas that of the latter is 2.17. Cubic zirconia is also shows more vivid play of colors, as its dispersive power (0.060) is higher than that of diamonds (0.044).
Cubic zirconia remains a favorite piece of jewelry with some people, while some still like to awe diamond jewelry. The difference between CZ and diamond can never be recognized with a simple glance, unless it is inspected by special instruments. The choice between the two entirely depends on the consumers' perception. They can go for cubic zirconia ― inexpensive and gives the same feeling as that of a diamond. And, for those who admire real beauty, they can always go for diamonds as a part of their jewelry.
