If you have cubic zirconia jewelry, here are some maintenance tips:

Clean cubic zirconia

Cubic zirconia gets dirty more easily than real diamonds because it's not as hard and may require more frequent cleaning.

Wear cubic zirconia with care, and it's a good idea to take it off for activities like gardening, laundry, cleaning, and bathing.

Chemicals and soaps can leave residue on these stones, darkening them quickly.

Avoid lotions, hairsprays, makeup, powders, and cleansers when wearing cubic zirconia jewelry.

A good way to clean cubic zirconia is to use a small soft brush and hot soapy water to remove dirt.

Rinse with warm water and dry with a clean cloth. This will restore the cubic zirconia to its natural luster and clarity.

Cleaning should be done every few weeks to maintain the gemstone's maximum appeal.

Cleaning the settings of cubic zirconia jewelry

Cubic zirconia can be set in 14k and 18k gold, 925 sterling silver, silver discs, and platinum. Jewelry in these settings can be worn frequently without much damage to the setting.

Jewelry set in less expensive materials may tarnish and scratch more quickly and may not clean well.

Settings made of high-quality metals such as 14k and 18k gold, sterling silver, silver plates, and platinum can be cleaned with any good jewelry cleaner.

Some metals, including gold and silver, may also be plated with special finishes, such as rhodium, to help prevent scratching and tarnishing.

These gold-plated finishes can scratch, so you should be more careful when wearing your jewelry.

Galvanized finishes should not be cleaned or polished with jewelry cleaners. Use only soap and water and dry.
