- the use of synthetics and lab diamonds
1. no mining required
Lab created diamonds, moissanites and the production of AAA cubic zirconia, corundum and nano gems is the responsible choice. They all lack the need of mining for them.
2. beauty and quality
CIRO gems are often referred to as “CIROLIT”. No matter what synthetic you choose, it will always come in highest quality available. Our cubic zirconia (zirconium dioxide (ZrO2)) for example is ranked above triple AAA and shows all characteristics of a natural diamond. All CIRO gems are available in various cuts like asscher, princess or pear shape. Lab-diamonds have the same physical, chemical and visual characteristics as natural mined diamonds.
Lab-diamonds, moissanite, cubic zirconia, nano gems and natural corundum are all of great value and far more affordable than natural stones.
Being one of the first companies CIRO set a milestone in sustainable and environment friendly jewelry production. In 1917 CIRO introduced the shell pearl and in the 1970’s the above triple AAA ranked cubic zirconia. The zirconium dioxide has all the characteristics of a natural stone and its production does not use harmful substances or requires to mine for it.
