How to Care for Your Jewelry: Colored Gemstones

February 15, 2024 1 min read

When cleaning your gemstone jewelry, it’s important to remember that natural gemstones are usually softer than diamonds. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid using harsh chemicals that may damage the stones. A gentle and effective cleaning method involves using a small amount of mild dish soap. Begin by adding a few drops of dish soap to a bowl of lukewarm water. Then, carefully place your gemstone jewelry into the bowl and let it soak for a few minutes. Next, using your fingers, gently wipe each stone to remove any dirt or grime.

After you have cleaned the gemstones, rinse them thoroughly under running water to remove any soapy residue. Take care not to drop or lose any jewelry pieces while rinsing. Once rinsed, pat the stones dry with a soft jewelry cloth, making sure to be as gentle as possible. Avoid using paper towels, as they can potentially scratch the gemstones.

It is worth noting that different gemstones may have specific care requirements. By being cautious and using the proper cleaning technique, you can help maintain the beauty and longevity of your gemstone jewelry.
