Cubic zirconia gemstones are the synthetic versions of natural gemstones and they are produced inside the hi-tech laboratories. The labs provide simulation process and employ unbelievably high pressure and temperature identical to that inside the earth’s crust. When it comes to purchasing something spectacular but without spending high, cubic zirconia gems are the ideal option.
In order to keep the elegance, appeal and charm of your cz gem jewelry, you need to take proper care. Do keep in mind that the longevity and charm of any cz ornaments depend on the type of care you are taking. There are many factors that can contribute to the everyday wear and tear of your fine cubic zirconia jewelry. Whether you plan eventually trade it in, craft it into something else, or pass it down to the next generation – it’s important to care for your jewelry so it can stay as beautiful as the day you received it.
Protection from Chemicals–
Exposure to substances such as, shampoo, sunscreen, make-up, flour, dust, soap residue, hairspray, body lotions, powders, natural skin oils and perspiration have the potential to cause lasting damage to your cubic zirconia ring. Remove your cz jewelry before taking up daily chores. Do not enter swimming pools or hot tubs with your jewelry! Chlorinated water can very quickly react with certain metals and gemstones and cause discoloration and even structural damage.
Clean with Luke Warm Water–
Just like a diamond, a cubic zirconia can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap. Use a soft, cosmetic applicator to reach crevices. However, if you wish, you can use a trusted jewelry cleaner to remove any dirt and dust from your zirconium. Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewelry cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewelry over time.
Cubic zirconia gemstones are very hard but they are still vulnerable to sweat. The sweat build-up combined with dust can make any jewelry looks dull. So just take it off when you’re playing sports, working outdoors or working out.
Store CZ Gems Properly–
Proper storing is important for any type of cz gem jewelry. Store CZ jewelry in a cool, dry place, preferably in a soft piece of felt or cloth. Be sure to keep each of your jewelry pieces in a soft pouch, separate compartment, or cotton-lined box. When removing your rings, don’t pull them off by the gemstone: this won’t damage the gem but it can, over time, stretch the metal that holds it in place, making the setting less secure. Jewelry has the ability to highlight women’s personality and bring out the best features. In order to keep them looking new, you need to take appropriate care.
