ZIRCONIA

Add sparkle withzirconia, without investing a fortune in precious stones. Sif Jakobs Jewellery uses only superior quality AAA cubic zirconia, and the stones are typically princess-cut to optimise light reflection. Their highly refractive, optically clear, single crystals are durable and retain their colour and brilliance, all at a fraction of the cost of diamonds.

Sif Jakobs Jewellery also uses treated zirconia which has a permanent black colour that doesn’t fade and is highly prized. We also use tinted zirconia stones in a variety of pretty colours, infusing a playful touch.

PRODUCT CARE

Chemical contact can leave a residue on the stones causing them to become dull in appearance.

Clean your zirconia stones every few weeks with a soft brush and warm water containing a PH-neutral soap. Rinse in warm water and pat dry with a clean cloth, to restore the stone’s natural shine and clarity.

FRESHWATER PEARLS

Freshwater pearls are beautiful semi-precious gems, created organically by freshwater mussels or clams. Sif Jakobs Jewellery uses naturally coloured freshwater pearls in their collections, combining with zirconia to stunning effect. 

PRODUCT CARE

As freshwater pearls are delicate and vulnerable to scratches, store your pearl jewellery separately in soft jewellery bags.

The best method for cleaning your pearl jewellery is to wipe them gently with a jewellery cleaning cloth after every use. This will help maintain their lustre and avoid dirt build-up.

UNIVERSAL JEWELLERY CARE TIPS

The jewellery care mantra to be followed daily is to “let your jewellery be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off”.

Here are a few tips on jewellery material care to help you take care of your prized possessions.

  • Demi-fine plated jewellery can be damaged by chemicals in hairspray, perfumes, hand sanitisers, and lotions. Always make sure to apply these first and allow them to dry before putting on your jewellery, as the alcohol, moisture, and chemicals in these can lead to colour loss.
  • And remember to remove your jewellery before gardening, strenuous workouts and all water-related activities like bathing and water sports as most metals and natural pearls react with chlorine, moisture, and perspiration.
  • At the end of the day, wipe your jewellery clean with a soft cloth. Regular wipe-down using ajewellery polishing cloth prevents dirt build-up, removes light tarnish and inhibits re-tarnishing, prolonging the original shine and sparkle of your jewellery.
  • To remove accumulated dirt from rhodium- or gold-plated jewellery, soak the jewellery in lukewarm clean water mixed with a small quantity of PH-neutral soap. Rinse well to remove any mineral residue and wipe dry immediately with a soft cloth.
  • To prevent scratches it’s also important tostore jewellery separately and safely, preferably in its original box or in ajewellery box with separate compartments when not in use. Jewellery organisers also make finding your favoured pieces easy.
