Keeping your jewelry forever beautiful only requires periodic cleaning and a little precaution.
In general, all you need to clean most gemstone jewelry is mild dishwashing liquid and a very soft toothbrush. Soak your jewelry in warm, soapy water for about 20 minutes, then gently brush it and rinse thoroughly. Be careful not to scratch the metal of your settings.
Try to avoid wearing your finest jewelry during strenuous activity and store gemstones separate from other pieces. Some gems are harder than others and could scratch a softer stone.
The above cleaning method is recommended for most types of gemstones; however, some stones require special care.
Please refer to the Learning Library's Gemstone Enhancement and Care Chart for a comprehensive list of gemstone care.
