Jewelry requires gentle care to ensure its everlasting beauty. That is why we recommend that you take your jewelry to a local jeweler and use a professional to help clean your fine jewelry. However, there are a few care and cleaning suggestions that you can use to make certain that your jewelry keeps its sparkle and shine.
How to Clean Your Jewelry at Home
After a reasonable amount of time passes while wearing your ring, dirt, makeup and other substances can build up on the surface of your jewelry. The effect takes away from its natural beauty and dulls the shine and luster of your gold. Generally, most jewelry can be cleaned with a mild liquid detergent mixed with warm water. Please note though, some exceptions including pearls, emeralds and opal should AVOID being submerged in water, as water can damage this type of jewelry over time. It is also important to clean your jewelry with a soft brush, like a soft tooth brush, to prevent any scratches, and it is a good idea to separately wash and store your jewelry to avoid nicks and scrapes.

Important Warnings about the Care of Fine Jewelry!
Finally, be aware the pin stems and the edges of other jewelry can easily scratch soft stones like lapis, malachite, turquoise, amber and opals. Protect gold and platinum jewelry with these gemstones by wrapping them in jeweler's tissue or cloth and store your jewelry separately. Many people make the mistake of overloading their jewelry boxes and/or jewelry bags with more than one piece at a time, and although they are safe from the environmental and chemical damages that may occur in the home, the jewelry itself may cause damage when rubbed against each other and moved around. Above all, just remember that fine jewelry is just that: fine. If you have any doubts about what your jewelry can handle in the way of wear, be on the safe side and make a conscious effort of taking off pieces when you think they may be in danger of chemicals, environmental damage or scratching. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
