2 carat cubic zirconia engagement rings feature a main CZ stone that weighs at least 2 carats. It is important to clarify that carat is a function of weight since many people believe that it is related to size. For example, a well cut round 2 carat diamond has a gem size of approximately 8.2mm when viewed from the top as it would be when mounted on an engagement ring. This compares to that of a 1ct stone which has a round gem size of 6.5mm. Clearly, the gem size has not doubled and the reason for this is that not only the width of the stone has increased, but also its depth and this is not visible when looking at the stone head on.
Carat is one of the important factors that determine a diamonds price. Since CZ is a manufactured stone, it is not subject to the laws of economic scarcity that diamonds are and if you have a higher budget, you can freely peruse a great selection of 2 carat cz engagement rings.
Within diamonds on the other hand, since 2cts is something of a milestone, a 2ct diamond engagement ring will not simply cost double that of a 1ct engagement ring. Rather, there will be an added premium at the milestone 2 carat target. Premiums are also found at half-carat sizes.
What Does 2 Carat Mean
Carat is a measurement of weight that is divisible into 100 points and equates to 0.2 grams.
This means that a 2 carat gem should weigh 0.4 grams. In the case of CZ however, even though CZ engagement rings are bought for their affordability and own beauty, because they are also an important diamond substitute, their carat count is quoted in reference to diamond carats.
In other words a 2 carat CZ stone is one that looks the same size as a 2 carat diamond stone, but since CZ is heavier than diamond, this means that a CZ stone of equal size actually weighs more than its diamond counterpart. In fact a 2 carat cubic zirconia engagement ring features a stone that weighs approximately 3.4 carats!
A 2ct cz stone is sizeable and one must make sure they give due consideration to the choice of band that it is mounted in order to bring out the best in the stone. White gold looks great but many people also like the classic yellow gold look. If you are choosing to splash out on a 2ct stone, you can save on the band if needs be by choosing silver.
It is also important to consider how a 2 carat stone will look on a lady’s hand. Bigger stones suit larger hands and can look over-whelming on smaller hands. However if this is the look you are going for then don’t hold back!
