Cubic zirconia may need more frequent cleaning than real diamonds since they are not as hard. You should preferably remove your zircon jewellery while doing household chores, gardening, cleaning and bathing, as the chemicals can be harmful to the stones. It’s also advisable to avoid applying lotions, make-up or perfume while wearing your cubic zirconiums – as with pearls, use the last-on, first-off rule to keep them clear of any residue.
Wash them simply with hot soapy water, to retain their beautiful shine and brilliance. A clean stone is an eye-catching one! Remember to dry them properly after cleaning, to maximize their clarity. Cleaning should be done every few weeks.
How to care for your .925 silver jewellery:
Keep it dry. It's not a problem if it gets wet, but do dry it quickly if you forget to take it off before showering.
-Remove it before swimming, saunas, hot tubs, working out, or household chores.
-Remove it before exposure to the sun, while getting ready to go out (to avoid getting cosmetics or creams on it) and while preparing food.
-To clean it, use a soft microfiber cloth and rub it in back and forth strokes (not little circles which can worsen the tarnish.) For hard to reach areas, a cotton swab will do.
-You may use a store-bought cleaner or make your own, using one-part baking soda and two-parts water. The paste formed is excellent to clean your silver, using a very soft toothbrush or cloth. In just minutes your 925 jewellery will shine beautifully!
Proper storage is also key to maintaining your silver jewellery. The best option is individual air-tight jewellery pouches. Putting several pieces together can cause scratching, tangling, or tarnish.
An advantage of 925 silver is that it requires less care and tarnishes less than 950.
If properly stored and cared for, your beautiful 925 silver jewellery will last a lifetime! Enjoy!
