That ‘special someone’ might appreciate putting that hard-earned money toward a home, children’s education, or even starting a new business, instead - understanding that facet of life is a true display of love.

Americans can seal the deal without breaking the bank this Valentine’s Day with cubic zirconia rings, an economical diamond-alternative, now offered in great styles and with guaranteed quality from California Style Jewelry. Valentine’s Day, one of America’s most popular days for marriage proposals, is approaching fast, and California Style Jewelry is now offering luxurious cubic zirconia rings as a cost-effective alternative to pricey diamond jewelry, to help more Americans say “I do.” All orders placed on or before February 14 are shipped for free.

According to the American Express Spending and Saving Tracker, in 2013, an estimated six million Americans proposed, up from four million in 2012. The same source revealed the average cost of an engagement ring in 2013 was $2,410, over 30 times more than the average $75 engagement ring from California Style Jewelry.

Forbes suggests couples that plan to get engaged need to consider ‘way-in-advance planning for the ring.’ “Diamond prices will not be getting any cheaper and might even soar in about four years,” said Bain Insights, contributor to Forbes magazine. The article explains that existing diamond mines will tap out and producers will be unable to keep up with demand, therefore driving the cost of diamonds up dramatically in as little as four years.

Michael Streit, president of California Style Jewelry, said the escalating diamond prices and number of marriage proposals combined with Americans’ need for high-end items for less make their unique pieces a must-have, specially on Valentine’s Day. “Let’s face it, cubic zirconia is crafted just as beautifully as a diamond and is a fraction of the cost,” Streit said. “Of course the rarity of a jewel is a factor, but spending a fortune on diamond rings can cause financial stress on soon-to-be-wed couples, for example, and possibly end their honeymoon way too soon.” He then logically added, “That ‘special someone’ might appreciate putting that hard-earned money toward a home, children’s education, or even starting a new business, instead - understanding that facet of life is a true display of love.”

California Style Jewelry selections are .925 silver; the highest quality sterling silver on the market, Streit said. “Avoid having your bride’s fingers turn green! Our jewelry has a No. 5 level of rhodium coating each piece, while most silver items in the market only have No. 1.”

California Style Jewelry is offering free shipping this Valentine’s Day season on all jewelry orders. The perfect ring and other high quality gifts for loved ones at very low prices, with a full 3-month guarantee on all purchases, are available at and
