How to clean precious stones?
Before deciding on the best way to clean your gems, look at the instructions given in a gemstone care guide. This is because each stone is unique and may call for customized cleaning routines using chemicals specially designed for that gem. Nevertheless, a gentle rub with a soft brush immersed in a solution of water and mild detergent is very effective at cleaning precious stones. Wipe it dry with a soft cloth before returning it to its respective storage.
Examples of precious stones on the market today are diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. Each one reacts differently with general cleaning agents. Beware of the level of sensitivity of a gem before subjecting it to any cleaning technique.
