How do I care for my Gemstone Jewelry?

THE SAFEST CLEANING METHODS ARE ALSO THE EASIEST

Protecting your jewelry from dirt, make-up,lotions, perfumes etc. is the best first step in caring for your jewelry. Last on, First off is a good mantra to follow with your jewelry.

Most colored gems can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush. A pulsed-water dental cleaning appliance and a soft, lint-free cloth can also be used. Be sure to rinse your jewelry in a glass of water to remove cleaning solutions since you risk losing loose stones – or even an entire piece of jewelry - if you rinse directly in the sink. A final buffing with a soft cloth or jewelry cloth will restore the  shine. 
 

Soft gems, such as pearls, on the other hand, can easily scratch. Use a new, clean makeup brush and warm, soapy water to softly clean them. Lay a strand of pearls on a towel to dry. The wet silk thread can stretch − and attract dirt − so don’t touch your strand until it is completely dry. Pearls worn often should be restrung once a year.

SAFELY STORE YOUR JEWELRY

Proper jewelry storage is often overlooked. Jewelry should never be tossed into a drawer or on top of a dresser − that’s asking for scratches and damaged gems.

Your jewelry comes in a box and/or plastic bag, which is a perfect place to keep them. Sterling silver, for example, should be kept in an anti-tarnish bag or cloth. Jewelry boxes that feature individually padded slots for rings and posts for hanging necklaces and bracelets are also ideal.
