For those lucky ladies who were given jewelry for the holidays, here is some advice on how to keep these treasures to looking their best:

  • Amethyst, Ruby, Sapphire, Peridot, Tanzanite - To clean, immerse in a mixture of warm water and mild, softener free dish washing liquid. Rub gently, rinse and dry.
  • Diamond - Mix two parts water and one part ammonia and soak this gem in this solution. Scrub with a soft eye shadow brush to loosen and dirt, rinse and pat dry.
  • Emerald - Only dip emeralds in room temperature water. Remove and brush with a soft cloth very gently. Allow the stone to air dry. Visit the jewelry every few years to have emeralds re-oiled to give it that fresh look.
  • Gold and Platinum - For routine cleaning, dip in soapy water, it is that easy. After a few years, bring the piece to a jeweler for a polishing.
  • Opal - The opal is a very soft stone and only needs a very soft, soapy cloth and rinse-off.
  • Pearls - No matter the type, all pearls should be wiped with a soft most cloth after each wearing. During maintenance times, wipe them carefully with a wet cloth and lay them flat to air dry. Bring them to the jeweler to be re-strung every four to five years.
