– Difference between Cubic and Stone

The designs of products using cubic and stone are often different. In wholesale market, cubic zirconia is produced using a biting process (the method used to hold the beads in real jewelry products) and a bonding process that simply attaches stones, etc. with a bond.

The stone has a mirror attached to the back. So it doesn’t matter if you attach it with a bond. The bond traces will be covered by the mirror anyway.

However, if the cubic is bonded, the bond will be on the back of the cubic, traces of the bond will be visible, and light will not be able to pass through, making it difficult to find the color of the cubic.


If cubics are attached to a product through bonding, there is something wrong with the design. This is because expensive cubic was used, but the color was removed with bond.

Designs using cubics are almost always made using a meshing process, and most jewelry, gold, and silver products, such as gemstones, gemstones, cubics, etc., are all made using a meshing process.

However, the bonding process simply attaches the stone type to the product with a bond, so it can easily fall off due to sweat or moisture. Therefore, defects occur much more often than in properly worked products.

If you look at the picture below, you can see the difference between biting work and bonding work.

The design on the left has a protrusion (protruding part) that holds the cubic. So, there is no need to attach it with a bond, but just attach the cubic pieces with projections (randomly).
The one on the right is stone + bonding, which involves simply applying bond to the stone and attaching it.

The reason the cubic is held in place with protrusions like that is because the cubic needs light to pass through for it to shine, so bond cannot be used on the back of the cubic. And since light must pass through cubic, the product must also be designed accordingly.

If you look at the product using cubic above, there is something unique about it.

In fact, it’s something you don’t think about unless you look carefully while buying a product. If cubic is used, the design must be made with an opening on the back like this. This is because the light passes through the cubic and the color appears better.

If there is a product design with a hole in the back like this, you can think of it as cubic. If there is no hole in the back and no biting has been done, it is most likely a stone.

For reference, if you look at the photo on the left above, there is a round gemstone. If you look at the back, it’s blocked. Because the gemstone itself is an opaque color, there is no reason to have a hole on the back.

Because there is a difference in the biting method and bonding method, the production cost is different and the defect rate is also different. That’s why we always do biting on high-end products or real jewelry.

You can see small protrusions around the gemstone.

So, in Namdaemun, we tend to think that cubic products are products that have been bitten together, and stone products are just bonded products.

“We are all cubic products”

The story is “Because we use cubics instead of stones, they sparkle well, and defects are unlikely to occur because we use a biting method instead of a bonding method.
Our products are of good quality, so buy them quickly”
