Jewelry pieces are both financial and emotional investments. Caring for your simulated diamond, gemstone and pearl jewelry will not only keep them looking great, but will ensure that they will last for times to come.
Basic Jewelry Care
All jewelry needs proper care. While certain pieces may need select care, most jewelry should be cared for using the following basics:
Just like the sun damages skin, heat and light can damage certain pieces. Too much sunlight can darken the appearance if exposed to too much light. To remove any doubt, store jewelry in a dark pouch or jewelry case.
Exposure to common everyday household chemicals, like ammonia or bleach, can damage both metals and gemstones. Even chemicals that are worn on the body – like hairspray, perfumes and lotions – can affect metals and dull stones. To keep your jewelry looking new, it's best to put on any perfumes, lotions or hairspray BEFORE putting on jewelry. And it's always wise to remove jewelry before swimming or using any type of household cleaners.
Most jewelry pieces come in a Zera Jewels box or pouch that is perfect for storing your new ZERA pieces. However, most people use a jewelry box.
Jewelry boxes that have individual felt‐lined and padded slots for rings, necklaces and earrings will keep them organized, clean and safe. Some boxes are lined with anti‐tarnish cloth, perfect for storing sterling silver pieces.
