2. What is the difference between Crystal and Cubic Zirconia?
Crystal is a transparent material which get its color through a colored foil stuck to the bottom of the stone. If you have a crystal without foil, the color will be like regular glass. For jewelry purposes most of the crystals are glued on the silver or steel part.
Cubic Zirconia also called “synthetic Diamond” is a material created through a chemical process to give this stone a true color, great shininess and a solid structure. CZ stones are not glued but set from hand.

3. What is E-coat?
E-coating, also known as electro-coating or electro deposition, is a method that uses electrical current to coat the metal surface with an organic lacquer, covering every nook and cranny on the jewelry with an even and consistent protective coat. This coating protects the sterling silver from tarnishing for an extended period. E-coated jewelry has a warmer tone than rhodium plated silver and let the natural beauty of the sterling silver come through.

4. What is E-poxy?
It is Enamel Color.

5. Is Our Jewelry Nickel and Lead Free?
Yes. Our 925 Sterling Silver Jewelry conform to International, European and American legislation regarding lead, nickel and heavy metal content

6. How to take care of Jewelry?
Over a period of time any jewlery can tarnish and become dull if not taken care of well.
We share with you some tips as to how to care for your jewelry bought from Mestra.

925 sterling silver jewelry care
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper to make silver durable enough for use in jewelry.
Tarnish is a dulling which naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the air. Most people think silver tarnishes due to oxidation. But, chemically speaking, silver is not very reactive—it does not react with oxygen or water at normal temperatures. However, other metals in the alloy, usually copper, may react with oxygen in the air.
Care: Care should be taken to avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals when cleaning with bleach or ammonia, or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.
Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray and hair products, and perfumes are also “enemies” of silver and will accelerate tarnishing. There’s a reason generations of women have been getting dressed with jewelry last, as a finishing touch!
Cleaning: You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.
Warm water and a mild, ammonia- and phosphate-free dishwashing soap should be your first line of defense to remove tarnish.
Procedure:  You will only need enough water to fully cover the silver, so your bowl may not need to be filled very deeply.
Use a mild dish detergent to wash your silver. Pour a small squeeze of the detergent into the water and slosh it around with your hands a bit to mix it well.
Place all your silver items into the bowl. Use a brand-new sponge or soft toothbrush to gently scrub off dirt and tarnish on your items. Don’t allow them to soak for too long, to prevent water spots.
Take each piece of silver out of the soapy bowl of water individually. Run it under warm or cool water to rinse all the soap off.
Use a dry microfiber towel or cloth to dry off all the water. Be sure to catch water hidden in cracks and crevices in jewelry or silverware.[1]
Use a silver polishing cloth or small microfiber cloth to rub off any tarnished areas that are still visible. Don’t use any fabric or material with heavy or stiff fibers, as these will scratch and dull your silver.
Attention: Please note that if you are using a silver polishing cloth to clean the silver parts of the jewelry do not touch the turquoise or other gemstones with the cloth.
Storing: As exposure to air tarnishes it, storing silver in airtight plastic bags with anti-tarnish strips is a great preventative measure. Just make sure you don’t store multiple jewelry pieces in the same bag: silver is a soft metal, so the individual pieces can scratch each other. You can also place a piece of chalk, a packet of activated charcoal, or a container of silica gel in the storage area to minimize tarnish.

Cubic Zirconia jewelry care
Cubic zirconia was first discovered in 1937 in Germany, but it became popular in the 1970s when scientists learned how to grow cubic zirconia, much as natural crystals are grown.
Care: While you're wearing your fine cubic zirconia jewelry, keep it away from caustic solutions of all kinds. Take off rings and bracelets when you're washing your hands or applying lotion, and don't wear it when you're cleaning house or doing laundry. Chlorine and the other chemicals in swimming pools can damage sterling silver, so take off your sterling cubic zirconia jewelry before you dive in. Take off your CZ jewelry before exercising as well, since perspiration can dull the jewels.
Cleaning : Even though cubic zirconia can look just like diamonds to the naked eye, they're not nearly as hard as diamonds, so they need more frequent and careful cleaning. Use a soft brush to clean the jewels themselves, scrubbing gently with warm, mild soapy water to get rid of any dirt accumulation. Rinse your cubic zirconia jewelry well in warm water, since soap scum can build up easily, and then pat it dry with a soft, clean cloth. Don't ever use tissues to wash or dry jewelry. Plan on cleaning your cubic zirconia jewelry at least every two to three months to keep it looking its best.
Storing : When you're storing your cubic zirconia jewelry, you need to pay more attention to the metal settings holding the jewels than to the jewels themselves. The CZ is unlikely to become scratched or damaged. Use a jewelry pouch to store your more important pieces, or set aside a section of your jewelry case. Foam settings and soft cloths can make a big difference in keeping pieces from rubbing up against each other.

Turqiose Gem stone jewelry care
Cleaning: It’s safe to clean turquoise jewelry with warm, soapy water, but it should never be cleaned with steam or ultrasonic cleaners.
You can use a jewelry cleaning brush and plain water to clean turquoise also.
Completely dry the jewelry with a soft cloth.
Some turquoise is treated to improve its surface appearance. Heat or solvents can damage the treated surfaces.
Rose gold plated jewelry care
Care: Try not to wear the piece when you are sleeping or exercising. Sweating and rubbing the jewelry on skin can wear away at the finish. Certain medications also affect the life of the piece, due to changes in the wearer's pH balance. Do not wear rose gold while swimming, or in the shower. Water, soap, and chemicals can tarnish the jewelry and residue can build up on the piece. This causes it to look dingy and dull.
Wearers should also remove jewelry, especially rings, when cooking, cleaning, gardening, or doing any activities that involve any type of chemical, dirt, or Another way to prolong the life of jewelry is to remove the piece when doing rough, or work with abrasive materials. This helps to avoid scratches, wear, and tear.
Cleaning: It is very simple to care for this type of jewelry. Use a soft brush to clean the jewels themselves, scrubbing gently with warm, mild soapy water to get rid of any dirt accumulation. Rinse well in warm water, since soap scum can build up easily, and then pat it dry with a soft, clean cloth. Don't ever use tissues to wash or dry jewelry.
Storing: To prolong the life of the piece, the owner should store it in a dark, enclosed case when they are not wearing it. This helps prevent exposure to chemicals and airborne materials that could affect its appearance. The case should have a lining of velvet, satin, or any other soft cloth or material.
Make sure to store all pieces of jewelry separately to avoid scratches. It is also important to keep the jewelry, even when in a case, away from moisture rich areas. Moisture can tarnish the jewelry.
