Engagement rings and cubic zirconias

I recently married a doctor but it will be a few years until he makes the "real" money.  I was wondering if it would be ok to have the set I want made (he owns gold) but put cubic zirconias in there instead of diamonds.  Later I would replace them with diamonds when he starts making good money.  We just don't want to waste our savings on that right now.

As long as its okay with you. I wouldn't care if I had a real diamond or not, that's for sure.

 I think you sound smart..

I'm not sure why it wouldn't be okay, no one else is wearing them but you.

Yes, well I guess I mean structurally and will jewelers do that? How long does it take for the stones to go bad?

I don't see why not. Careful many will tell you it's tacky and trashy to have cz engagement rings.

If that is what you want, then go for it.
