Technibond and Absolute

What's the difference between technibond and absolute jewelry?:-k

I'm a newbie to jewelry. Honestly, I just learned the difference between marquis, princess, and solitare cuts from a Collen L. jewelry show the other day!:d/

Thanks!
I love to shop.

RE: Technibond and Absolute

They are different brands.

Absolute specializes in CZs. Generally they use signity CZs because they are the best graded out there. This is why they look like a D-flawless diamond. Most luxury CZ brands use the signity manufacturer.

Technibond specializes in gold over silver. It's a bit cheaper than absolute. Technibond has 40 mils of gold over the silver.

Keep in mind that absolute has 120 mils of gold over the silver.

Wow Thanks!

So the CZ's are the "fake diamonds" right? I know the absolute stuff was soooo pretty!

So they are both gold OVER silver. But, the Absolute more (120 mils) gold over the silver than the Technibond (40 mils). Having said that - do the rings fade or turn? Does the gold over the silver hold up over time?

RE: Technibond and Absolute

I've never had any of my absolute rings fade on me. Most of my technibond is fine, except for a few pieces of "colored" technibond. I have a green technibond necklace that is basically gold now. It still looks fine, but it is no longer green.

RE: Technibond and Absolute

Sorry to correct you egoslayer but Absolute is the brand name of HSN's CZ stones. Vermeil is 120 mils of gold over silver. Also how do you know that the CZs they use are Signity CZ? I've never heard anyone on HSN mention that,only on Shopnbc.

RE: Technibond and Absolute

Signity is a brand of CZ like Absolute is HSN's brand of CZ. VW uses Absolutes in her jewelry. Wonder why HSN is allowing her to say Signity.

What I didn't know was what vermeil was. Thanks for that piece of information.

Signity is not just a brand - its a manufacturer. They sell the rights to the CZ's so you can call them whatever you want. That is what HSN does.

I think Technibond has gotten awfully expensive.
