How to take care of your gems?

27 Jun, 2022 | Gemstone | Gem Selection

Gemstones have captivated mankind since antiquity. These valued items are bright, colorful, and unique. Rareness and hardiness make them valuable. If you believe tough gemstones don't require maintenance, you're wrong. These stones are resistant but not indestructible. Here's how to keep your jewels beautiful.

Things to Remember While Cleaning Your Gemstones

Diamonds, rubies, and emeralds may be cleaned with mild detergent and water. Before cleaning gemstones, learn about their nature. Sharp stones exist. Before cleaning them at home, learn how. Use caution while soaking gem-studded jewelry. Wet delicate stones like turquoise and amber may ruin their luster and sheen.

Ultrasonic Cleaner?

If so, consider the following. Ultrasonic jewelry cleaners are effective. They're not safe for all stone types, however. Moonstone and emerald may be damaged by ultrasonic cleaning. Use it only if you know how to clean jewels in it. When cleaning precious stone jewelry, consult a jeweler.

Separate Gemstone Ornaments

Separate your diamonds. Diamond rings may ruin a pearl bracelet if stored with them. Separate them in your jewelry box. You can even use pouches. Opals and pearls absorb moisture from the air. Avoid safe deposit boxes. Store such jewelry in a fabric-lined box.

Sunlight and heat may damage gems.

Sunlight may damage your skin and stone jewelry. Heat and light may fade and damage valuable stones. Amethysts and smokey quartz fade under direct sunshine. Sunlight may fade pearl and ivory. Some diamonds lose moisture when heated. Extreme heat and temperature variations may also shatter jewels. Keep gemstones out of sunshine and heat.

Chemicals may damage gemstones.

Chemicals may damage gold, white gold, and platinum gemstone jewelry. Chemicals don't mean sulphuric or hydrochloric acid. Everyday items may harm them. Perfumes, hairsprays, cosmetics, lotions, etc., contain various compounds. Protect gem-studded jewelry from your cosmetics box. Simple actions may protect your glittering beauty away from chemicals.

Treat treated gems carefully.

Gemstones are sometimes treated to increase color and clarity. Pearls are bleached using peroxide. Metal oxides coat colorless topaz. Glass and resin mask ruby and emerald cracks. Solvents, ultrasonic cleaners, heat, and steam damage remedies.

Dos and Don'ts

If you want to keep your jewels looking their best, there are a few things you should never do.

  • Avoid putting all your precious stones in a single box or bag when traveling. 

  • Always carry them separately. 

  • Use jeweler's tissue to protect them.

  • Wearing gemstone jewelry while working in the garden is a no-no.

  • Avoid putting your gemstone jewelry on top of your dresser or in a drawer, as this might damage it. 

  • These priceless gems may be scratched when left in situations like these.

  • Your most precious things are your gems. 

  • Your children and grandkids will cherish them more than anything else you can give them. 

  • They will retain their luster for decades if you treat them well.
