Ways to Clean and Care for Cubic Zirconia Rings

Learn how to maintain the beauty of stainless steel CZ rings in your inventory.

Whether you are a seller of CZ wholesale fashion rings or a retailer of these gorgeous pieces, you should know how to care for them. This is especially the case for CZ rings hanging out in your inventory a bit longer than expected. Without proper care, these rings will lose their brilliance and glamour, and won’t be appealing to your customers any longer. Although stainless steel rings are generally easy to clean, those with CZ stones are a different story.

Today, we will share some tips on how to take care of cubic zirconia rings to keep them looking new and attract more customers online.

Gently clean the CZ crystals.

First up, you have to clean the cubic zirconia crystals. These gems may look and shine like diamonds, but they are not as hard. That is why they need careful cleaning.

Here are the things you need to clean the CZ stones:

  • Mild soap and water solution
  • Soft bristle toothbrush
  • A bowl of warm water

You can use dishwashing liquid, but make sure it's a mild variant. Using the toothbrush, gently scrub the jewels until the accumulated dirt is gone. Place it in the bowl of warm water to rinse the soap off. Pat dry with a clean microfiber towel.

Scrub the ring settings clean.

Next up is the setting. The nooks and crannies of the ring setting are the areas where dust and dirt accumulate, so you have to gently scrub these areas. This is especially the case with prong and cathedral ring settings where there are many small, hard to clean areas.

Using the same materials above, gently scrub the setting with the toothbrush. Stainless steel is pretty much scratch-resistant, but it's still best to be careful when rubbing it. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to avoid soap scum to build up, then pat dry with a microfiber cloth.

Do the cleaning of the rings at least every two months to keep them looking their best.

Store your CZ rings properly.

It is best to store stainless CZ rings individually to prevent them from getting scratched or damaged. Place each ring in a velvet or silk jewelry pouch before storing it with other pieces in your jewelry box. You can also use foam to separate each ring to prevent them from rubbing up against each other and getting scratches.


No one wants to order CZ rings online and receive dull-looking pieces. The same is the case if you are going to take product photos to post on your e-commerce site or social media pages. Make sure to regularly check the rings in your inventory and clean them before packing them up for shipping.
