  1. How to Properly Care For Your Gemstone Jewelry

    Leave a Comment

    Gemstone jewelry can be a brilliant addition to any ensemble, adding pops of color and bringing an outfit together. It is important to know how to care for your gemstones and how to keep them clean, polished and beautiful.

    how to properly care for your gemstone jewelry

    Do your research
    Some may think that one cleaning regimen for one gemstone can be used on other stones, but the fact is, they are delicate and all contain different properties. This means that not every gemstone can be cleaned the same way.  It is important to know what can and cannot be used to brighten up your piece. Do your research and when in doubt contact your jeweler.

    Visit your jeweler
    It is recommended to take your jewelry in at least once a year to have it professionally cleaned as well as inspected. Your jeweler can repair or replace damaged prongs and clasps as well as buff out many scratches.

    Remove your jewelry
    Things we use daily such as soaps, lotions and perfumes can cling to and dull down your gemstones. Be sure to remove your jewelry when you shower, wash your hands, use lotion, or wash the dishes. Some cleaning chemicals can even be damaging to certain stones. It is important to know what things can damage your gemstones.

    Store gemstones in jewelry case
    The best thing you can do for your precious jewelry when you’re not wearing it is to keep it stored in a safe, padded jewelry box or armoire. Gemstones can be scratched easily depending on the stone, so storing them separately in their own compartment keeps them from getting scratched.

    Here at Tennies we believe that every piece of jewelry is special and beautiful. Gemstone pieces often represent important people in our lives, important milestones or memories. Taking proper care of your precious gems will help them last a lifetime.
