Actually, one jewelry cleaning technique will not enough for all gemstones or metals because each type of jewelry needs its own special care due to certain factors. An at-home method should only be used, just in case when in-store service is not available at the moment, for especially hard gems like rubies, sapphires and diamonds, but it’s best to consult with your jewelry professional.

Now more than ever, the consciousness of cleaning jewelry become important in the comfort of your home. If you don’t know what is the right jewelry cleaner solution, below are a few other recommendations that you can follow.

The red, whites and blues (rubies, diamonds and sapphires) are the safest gems to wash reception . Others require very specific care to avoid damage. It’s important to regularly clean your diamond because it naturally attracts oils and sometimes looks cloudy when not cleaned.

 

The Gemological Institute of America recommends creating a mix of warm water and a couple of drops of mild dishwashing soap. Soak your ring for about 20 – 40 minutes then gently brush the stone with a replacement soft-bristled toothbrush. Rinse under warm running water to get rid of the film . If needed, repeat until sparkling! Please use caution when scrubbing fragile pieces like estate jewelry or older settings.

 

Another way to wash diamond jewelry and harder gems like rubies and sapphires is to soak the piece in an ammonia-based cleaner like a cleaner overnight. Organic gems shouldn't be exposed to ammonia-based cleaners, and every one gems should avoid harmful chemicals like bleach and chlorine.

Never clean opals, pearls or the other organic gems in harsh cleaning solutions; only a soft cloth and really mild soap should be wont to wipe clean the jewellery . Opals and pearls are very fragile and may easily be scratched if not handled properly. Pearls even have thin layers called nacre which will be removed if a rough cleaner is employed .
