How to care for Cubic Zirconia

Are you a proud owner of a stunning zirconia jewelry? These beautiful diamond simulants are not only affordable but also durable. However, just like any other piece of jewelry, they require proper care and maintenance to keep them looking their best. In this blog post, we will explore the different methods you can use to clean your zirconia and help you determine which one is best for your own pieces.

Why is Cleaning Important?

Before we dive into the cleaning methods, let's understand why it's important to clean your zirconia jewelry regularly. Over time, dirt, oils, and other substances can accumulate on the surface of your jewelry, dulling its sparkle and shine. By cleaning your zirconia, you can restore its brilliance and keep it looking as good as new.

Method 1: Warm Soapy Water

A simple and effective way to clean your zirconia jewelry is by using warm soapy water. Fill a bowl with warm water and add a few drops of mild dish soap. Gently place your jewelry in the soapy water and let it soak for a few minutes. Then, using a soft toothbrush, gently scrub to remove any dirt or grime. Rinse it thoroughly with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.

Method 2: Ammonia Solution

If your zirconia needs a deeper clean, you can try using an ammonia solution. Mix equal parts of water and household ammonia in a bowl. Place your jewelry in the solution and let it soak for about 10 minutes. After soaking, gently scrub with a soft toothbrush to remove any stubborn dirt. Rinse it thoroughly with clean water and dry it with a soft cloth.

Method 3: Ultrasonic Cleaner

If you want a professional-level clean for your zirconia, consider using an ultrasonic cleaner. These devices use high-frequency sound waves to create tiny bubbles that gently remove dirt and grime from your jewelry. However, it's important to note that not all zirconia jewelry are suitable for ultrasonic cleaning. Check with the manufacturer or a jeweler to ensure that it can be safely cleaned using this method.

Method 4: Professional Cleaning

If you're unsure about cleaning your zirconia yourself or if it requires special care, it's always a good idea to take it to a professional jeweler for cleaning. They have the expertise and tools to clean safely and effectively, ensuring that it retains its beauty for years to come.

Remember, regardless of the cleaning method you choose, always handle your zirconia with care. Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals, abrasive materials, or extreme temperatures. By following these cleaning tips and taking proper care of your zirconia, you can enjoy its beauty and sparkle for a lifetime.
