Gem Care and Handling
We buy the jewelry that we have at home because of its beauty, and despite their seeming durability, your jewelry does need some care. Below are some general guidelines our jewelers have assembled to keep your jewelry beautiful for generations.
Keep your jewelry clean. Deposits will form on your jewelry, and over time, these deposits will cause damage. Use warm water and gentle soap to soak your jewelry. If needed, use a soft bristled toothbrush to clean behind your stones. Simply rinse with warm water and pat dry with a soft lint free cloth.
All gemstones are vulnerable to breaking, yes even your diamonds. One simple method to avoid breaking or chipping your stone is to remove your jewelry before any strenuous activity; this even includes doing house or yard work.
Many of your softer gemstones cannot withstand an ultrasonic cleaner. Diamond, sapphires and rubies will be fine, but other gems will incur damage before you can remove them from the cleaner. Also, harder stones like diamonds, rubies and sapphires can be cleaned with ammonia to remove the film from the stone.
One point to always remember is that opaque gemstones like lapis lazuli, turquoise and malachite will require extra care. These are stones that should avoid ultrasonic cleaners as well as chemical solutions like ammonia. They can even absorb soap, so wash with care. These stones are rocks not crystals as the case of a diamond. So remember that rocks will absorb water throughout; whereas, a single crystal gem, like a sapphire, will not absorb any moisture.
Opals are like opaque gemstones, and should never be cleaned with an ultrasonic, chemicals and must avoid heat and strong light.
With all organic gems like pearls, coral and amber, you should only use a clean cloth to wipe off any dirt. These gems are very porous and can absorb such simple chemicals as hairspray, cosmetics or even perfume.
When you remove jewelry, make sure you separate your pieces in storage. Harder stones will scratch softer gems as well as gold and platinum.
