Every so often go through the jewelry case and clean all the gems within it. Follow these suggestion to keep them to looking their best.
  • Amethyst, ruby, sapphire, peridot, tanzanite
To clean most gemstones of color, immerse them in a mixture of warm water and mild, softener-free dishwashing liquid separately. Scrub gently, rinse and dry.
  • Amber
Clean with a water moisturizer cloth, but never add soap, otherwise it will dull this honey-colored gem.
  • Diamond
To clean, soak in a solution of two parts warm water and one part ammonia for several minutes. Scrub to loosen any dirt. Rinse off and pat dry. 
  • Emerald
Dip in water and brush gently with a soft eye shadow brush, then allow them to dry. Warm, soapy water can remove fillers, so always use cool to room temperature water only. 
  • Gold and Platinum
For routine cleaning, dip in soapy water. If the piece is not pure gold (10 karat or less), it contains alloy metals that may tarnish. If that happens, add a few drops of ammonia to the solution and brush gently. 
  • Opal
Use a soft, soapy cloth, then rinse. Be extra careful when handling these delicate stones, as they are prone to chipping. Opals need to absorb moisture from the air, so never store them anywhere airtight.
  • Silver
Use a cloth designed to shine silver. Paper towels or tissues can cause scratches.
  • Turquoise
Wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Never use a cleanser, the porous stone could absorb the fluid and become discolored. Clean turquoise frequently.
Any “Bigger than Life” gals such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Biel and Cate Blanchett will not only have their jewels noticed but their designer handbag as well. 
An authentic Balenciaga Chevre Plomb Day Handbag is one such bag that meets the criteria of being simply “huge.” Crafted in Balenciaga’s chevre goatskin leather in charcoal silver hue, the outside zippered pocket is a standard feature for extra storage space.

Leather tassels suspend off the zipper pulls which designates a true pre-owned Balenciaga. The hand-held or swing over the shoulder handle is in braided leather with fine top stitching.

The used Balenciaga Day can carry a multitude of personal items. The roomy interior opens via a top zipper and formulates enough space for belongings than most others.

The interior zip pocket in the pre-owned Balenciaga Day satchel is complimented with leather trim.

The bigger the better may be the motto of jewelers, but an authentic Balenciaga Chevre Plomb Day Handbag sets that standard in handbags.
