Our stones are made of Cubic Zirconia. Cubic Zirconia or CZ as it is referred to is made from zirconium dioxide, a different material than diamonds, which although a different chemical composition comes closer than any other gem to matching the characteristics of a diamond. CZ is similar to a diamond with its brilliance and crystal clarity, but it is a man-made material that is colorless, hard, and flawless. It looks so much like a diamond, an affordable alternative. To the untrained eye, it looks like a real diamond.
Our metal setting is rhodium plated brass. It is not made of Sterling Silver nor Stainless Steel. Rhodium is a silvery-white precious metal and a member of the platinum family. It is often used to plate jewelry because it has a shiny & white finish that gives them that real gold look. The brass is bronze tinged and without the rhodium plating, it won’t look shiny & white. It is also hypoallergenic.
Rhodium Plating Doesn’t Last Forever
Jewelry plating is covering one metal surface with a very thin layer of another. Which means that, in time, the plating covering your jewelry will eventually wear off. How fast the plating wears off depends upon how you care for your jewelry, your body chemistry and how often you use it. For example, plating will wear off most quickly on rings, compared to bracelets, earrings and necklaces, because rings touch and hit surfaces more. You’ll know your plating is wearing off when you notice your jewelry looking dull and tinges of yellow are showing. If you are looking for jewelry that will last a lifetime, we recommend you get 14k-24k solid gold with real diamonds.
Clean the jewelry by mixing water & mild liquid soap. Brush jewelry gently using a soft toothbrush. Rinse well & dry thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth or hairdryer. Cleaning it will bring back its brilliance.
Do not let perfume, lotion, hairspray, chlorine, salt water or other chemical substance come in contact with your jewelry. It will take out the plating and tarnish the jewelry.
Remove your jewelry before: Sleeping, bathing/showering, going swimming, workout/about to sweat excessively, doing household/cleaning chores that involves the use of cleaning chemicals.
STORE your jewelry in an airtight bag/box individually. Cramming them together can cause scratches.
*But take note that if it is the plating that has faded, then no cleaning will bring it back.
