Today we’re sharing a brief roundup of some of the more common scams, deceptions, manipulations and money-grabbing tactics used by unethical jewelers that give our industry a bad rap. We wanna arm you with the knowledge that each of these common scams and unethical business practices exist...because, once you see it, you can’t UNSEE IT. In some cases, police and governments have gotten involved. But in most cases, it’s up to ethical jewelry companies to call out the bad actors in our industry.  We hope this 5 minute read can give you the info to spot these shenanigans, and we can rest assured that our friends and customers won’t be deceived (again).
Since the founding of our website-- check out our top, most-read 17 blog posts to date! Topics include diamond deprogramming, relationship tips, engagement proposal ideas and stories, product care and cleaning, picking the right engagement ring, gift ideas and what factors make our 5A diamond-quality cubic zirconia stones the best!
A common question we get is how much information and details do we need in order to make a custom ring (or other piece of jewelry) exactly as the customer wants it. The short answer: we want as much information as the customer can conveniently provide us based on what he/she knows (or thinks they do). The more details we have, the easier it is for the custom jewelry team to nail the custom ring design...and do it SOONER in the back-and-forth process as we communicate with the potential customer. The other side of the question is, “Can we make this work with very little detail and/or no pictures or examples from the customer?”As that Obama-era U.S. Presidential campaign sticker on one of my colleague’s car back bumper says: YES WE CAN!
Mass retailers that sell jewelry are always getting caught red-handed selling items manufactured with materials that are suspect. The result? Toxic jewelry. Please take a look at today's article. It’s no fun to read, and it was no fun to write. But reading this may save the life of someone you care about (or his/her brain, kidneys, bones, or reproductive function)
Did you know a piece of finished jewelry that is complete except for setting stones – example:  earrings, ring or pendant – is called a "mounting"? Every single one of our pieces of jewelry can be purchased as a “mounting” without stones. And of course, you can do so less expensively than the piece fully-set with our CZ stones. You don’t need to be a jeweler/jewelry company for a B2B purchase, either; anyone can buy the mountings we manufacture with a few conditions.
Forget so-called 'home-remedies' for cleaning jewelry and expensive jewelry cleaners that only work for some kinds of jewelry (and damage others). There are two simple ways to clean your CubicZirconia.com jewelry yourself, at home. One method is basically free, and the other will cost you less than US$15 bucks. We'll discuss both methods of cleaning fine CZ jewelry in this post. We recommend cleaning daily-wear rings, earrings, and pendants from CubicZirconia.com every week or at most every two weeks. 
In this post, we fully explained what rhodium is, why rhodium-plating is popular with fine jewelry (and fine jewelry customers!) and provide more rhodium-related info than you’ll probably ever want to know. We even cover the drawbacks to rhodium-plating -- mainly the ongoing maintenance cost and effort-- to help our customers wanting white precious metal jewelry to make the best possible decision. Please note that rhodium-plating for extra protection and shine comes standard on all fine sterling silver and white gold jewelry created by CubicZirconia.com. Replating white gold and sterling silver jewelry with new rhodium is a service we offer at a low cost. If you prefer the softer, warm tones of white gold that has not been rhodium-plated, please contact us before purchase so that we can make that modification when you place your order.
The Moh's Scale of Hardness ranks minerals, gemstones, metals and other materials based on what material scratches what other materials, and what materials are scratched by it in return. Basically, a material can be scratched by anything ranked above it and can scratch anything ranked below it. This is important because you're going to learn how to mostly prevent the #1 reason fine precious metal jewelry becomes damaged and doesn't last the lifetime you expect it to last!
Over time any sterling silver jewelry piece exposed to air will tarnish by changing colors. Yes: ALL sterling silver jewelry will tarnish/discolor over a long enough time. But that is not to say sterling silver will ‘tarnish quickly’ in a general sense or that it will tarnish with normal wear for one wearer during their years of wear. Allow us a minute or two to explain the factors that will cause our sterling silver jewelry to tarnish more quickly than it should.
