Cleaning & Caring: Cubic Zirconia
Cleaning specific jewellery pieces
Jewellery consists of many different materials, metals, stones, gems and organic materials.
Each material brings its own cleaning challenges. If in doubt please just wipe your piece over with a soft cloth after each wear. This will remove dirt, grime and body oils before you place it back into storage which will keep it looking its best longer.
In some designs the stones or focal pieces are glued into position and some cleaners (even water) may loosen the hold over time causing the focal to fall out.
Caring for Cubic Zirconia Jewellery
Polish your cubic zirconia jewellery with a soft cloth to remove any surface dirt and dust but don’t rub in a hard circular motion which may scratch the surface of some metals used in your jewellery.
Just like a diamond, cubic zirconia can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap. Use a soft brush to reach crevices. You can use a trusted jewellery cleaner on your cubic zirconia.
Another method to clean cubic zirconia is using steam. Hold your jewellery directly over the steam stream to loosen dirt. Holding it over a boiling kettle works well, but use caution and maybe tweezers or tongs to avoid burns. Dry and polish with a suitable cloth.
Cubic zirconia can be cleaned with an ultrasonic cleaner.
These cleaning methods are suitable for Cubic Zirconia but not for pearls, many gemstones or crystals which can be damaged by heat or ultrasonic cleaners.
