Cleaning cubic zirconia jewelry is much easier than you think!
Like diamonds, the precious cubic zirconia gems need to be cleaned to maintain their original brilliance and luster. Many variables in our surroundings can dull the shine of precious gems: body lotion, perfume, hairspray, perspiration or just simply normal everyday wear.
