GEMSTONE CARE

Gemstones used in jewelry are generally very durable- but not indestructible. Certain gemstones and metals are more vulnerable to damage than others. By handling your jewelry with care, you can prevent damage and keep your jewelry in beautiful condition for decades to come.

Wearing

To avoid damaging or soiling, gemstone jewelry should be removed for certain day-to-day activities:

  • Physically-involved activities, such as sports and exercise, can cause settings to loosen. Gemstones can be chipped by hard blows or damaged by prolonged exposure to sweat.
  • Showering, cleaning, and swimming can put jewelry into contact with harsh chemicals and/or hot water. Is it best to remove jewelry before showering and put it on last when getting dressed. Contact with hairsprays and perfumes should also be avoided.
  • Removing jewelry when gardening, baking, or applying lotion will help to minimize grime build up.

Storing

Gemstone jewelry should be stored in a padded box or soft cloth bag. Pieces should be stored separated to avoid scratching- particularly important when traveling. This also applies to diamonds, which may not be prone to scratching but can be scratched by other diamond.

Cleaning

  • For daily cleaning, gently wipe your jewelry with a soft lint-free cloth. A toothpick may be used to gently remove dirt or grime lodged in the setting.
  • For more thorough cleaning, recommended methods depend on the gemstone and metal type. Warm water and mild detergent is generally the safest option. Avoid using hot water or scrubbing jewelry with any abrasives. After cleaning, rinse in clean water and pat dry.
  • Ultrasonic cleaning machines are convenient but should be used with caution. Porous, brittle, and damaged gemstones can be damaged by the machine’s vibration.
  • It’s a good idea to have jewelry professionally cleaned at least once a year. Aside from a professional clean and polish, your jewelry can check pieces for loose settings and other signs wear and tear.
