Sterling silver jewellery isn’t always plain. For added colour, you can find many different types of stones set in sterling silver. You might be wondering what C.Z. stones are and what price you should be purchasing them at. We wouldn’t want you to get ripped off the next time you decide to buy something shiny or beautiful.
(C.Z.) is the most popular stone found in most earrings, pendants, bracelets,
and rings. It is an artificially produced synthetic gemstone and comes in an assortment of colours. These gemstones are widely known for their durability and near likeness to genuine diamonds, sapphires, rubies, etc., but for an extremely low price compared to what a diamond dealer will offer. It would take a jewelry expert to be able to distinguish these c.z. stones from the real thing, which is why they are so popular in the jewelry market. Its brilliant shine and various cuts are hypnotic to any pair of eyes. Prices vary depending on size, shape and colour. You will find these pairs of studs at retail stores to cost at least 400% more than the prices listed at our store. Impress your friends, significant others and everyone else: Get your C.Z. on rings, bracelets, pendants, and other sterling silver jewellery.
How Should I Clean Cubic Zirconia Jewellery?
Cubic zirconia itself can be cleaned in an ultrasonic jewellery cleaner, but consider the setting materials before you drop the jewellery into the tank and turn on the switch. Use a less intense method to clean CZ jewelry crafted from sterling silver or from plated metals -- dishwashing detergent and a very soft brush may be all it takes to remove film from the CZ and return its fire.
Store cubic zirconia jewellery by itself, or well separated from gemstones that are rated as harder or softer on the Mohs scale -- that type of storage is important for all
jewellery to avoid scratches.
