How to clean jewelry isn’t as easy as it sounds. Diamonds are so hard they are virtually indestructible, but a good earring cleaner can get that precious stone sparkling clean again! While diamonds are the most commonly-found gemstones, there are also many other precious stones that also have this quality. A precious stone is defined as any substance having a high reflection rate and/or losing its sparkle after a time. This definition also includes all other minerals and elements. For instance, a sapphire is one of the most rare minerals in the world; however, because of its high reflective ability, it is used in high-end jewelry because of it’s unique sparkle.
The best thing you can do for your precious earrings, necklace, or bracelet is to store them properly. Because they are so delicate, earrings need to be stored in their own special case or pouch in order to avoid damage or tarnishing. Most jewelers carry a wide variety of beautiful cases, pouches, and jewelry holders that are designed specifically for each type of jewelry. You should also make sure to check out local jewelry shops to see which types of jewelry are stored in the most suitable cases.
Another best way to clean these pieces is to use a liquid soap or soft brush. Make sure to rinse your jewelry completely in order to remove any soap residue or leftover water. Follow this up with a warm damp cloth dipped into the cleanser you’re using to clean the pieces and gently pat them dry. You may need to repeat this process several times, depending on the pieces’ weight and oils. After you’ve cleaned your precious earrings, you will want to store them in their special cases or pouches until you are ready to wear them again.
