Jewelry Care

Semi Precious Stones / Pearls

Generally, semi-precious gemstones are hard stones making them durable, easy to wear and clean.

Semi-precious stones can be cleaned with warm soapy water. Dip your stone into the water for a few seconds and use a jewelry cleaning brush to softly remove any build-up around the stone. When doing this, take care not to loosen or disturb the jewelry setting.

Rinse thoroughly after cleaning and use a soft non-abrasive cloth to dry the stone.

It is usually safe to use an ultrasonic cleaner as long as the stone isn't treated. We would not recommend steam cleaning, as these semi-precious stone should not be subjected to high heat.

Soft Porous Gemstones - Pearls

Porous gemstones such as pearls are generally softer and need to be carefully looked after to retain their beauty.

    Most porous gemstones should not be cleaned with water or submerged in water as this can cause discoloration and can damage them.

    Harsh, abrasive products including cleaners and perfumes will affect these precious stones, creating flaws that remove their luster. 

    Even soaking in warm water can damage these gemstones, as residues left behind once the water has been absorbed build-up leaving them dull and lacking their original shine. For the same reason, care should also be taken to avoid contact with make-up, perfume or sprays. Where such stones are dampened, they should always be allowed to dry completely before being stored away.

    For best results, use a soft dry cloth to carefully remove any dirt that has gathered around the jewelry setting.
