Gemstone Jewelry Cleaning and Care Guide Gemstone Ring Cleaning & Care Guide

Blue Topaz Rings

Although gemstone rings are one of the most durable type of natural stones available, they require a little care and cleaning in order to maintain their luster and vibrancy over the years. One thing you may not have realized: avoid ultrasonic and boiling of gemstones in almost all stones except rubies, sapphires, amethyst, and garnet. In most cases, we recommend gentle soap and water, but a trace amount of ammonia mixed in water can also be used in cleaning gemstone jewelry.

Maintain your gemstone rings beauty by gentle cleaning

Gemstone rings tend to collect dust underneath. We recommend cleaning with water, a soft toothbrush, and gentle soap, preferably ones without harsh chemicals.

Be Careful using ultrasonic jewelry cleaners with most gemstone rings

Some gemstones may become damaged, cracked, or lose their resin when boiled in ultrasonic jewelry cleaners. Read below for your particular gemstone ring for recommended jewelry cleaning methods:

Amethyst Rings - Avoid strong heat and abrupt temperature changes. Boiling in ultrasonic should be done with care so as not to "shock" stone. Better to soak in mild soap and use a soft toothbrush.

Citrine Rings - Strong heat or a jeweler's torch can hurt the gemstone color. Boiling in ultrasonic should be done carefully, only by an experienced jeweler or gemologist.

Diamond Rings - Heat and Ultrasonic okay. Can also be cleaned using gentle soap and a toothbrush.

Emerald Rings - Use extreme care. Emeralds are often filled with resins and oils that may be unintentionally removed by cleaning. Do not boil or use ultrasonic. Best cleaned with mild soap and toothbrush.

Garnet Rings - Gentle boiling in ultrasonic is okay. Jewelers should avoid heat with torch. Gentle soap and toothbrush also recommended.

Pearl Jewelry - Pearls are organic. Do not boil, heat, or use ultrasonic. Avoid unnatural substances such as chemicals, hairspray, and perfume. Perspiration can be damaging to pearl jewelry. Wipe with a soft, damp cloth after wearing. Pearl jewelry should not be stored in a safe deposit box for long periods, as pearls need light. Natural pearls are very soft and should be well-cared for.

Peridot Rings - Do not use ultrasonic. May fracture if boiled. Some jewelers do not even recommend soap and water but only a soft untreated cloth for cleaning. If your peridot is really dirty, use soap and water sparingly and carefully and dry thoroughly with a soft untreated cloth. 

Ruby Rings - Ultrasonic and boiling methods are generally safe. Toothbrush and gentle soap also okay.

Sapphire Rings - Ultrasonic and boiling methods are generally safe. Toothbrush and gentle soap also okay.

Tanzanite Rings - Do not boil or use ultrasonic. May fracture gemstone. Gentle soap and toothbrush recommended.

Topaz Rings - Do not boil or use ultrasonic. May fracture gemstone. Gentle soap and toothbrush recommended.

Some jewelers also recommend a small amount of ammonia mixed in water to brighten the luster of your gemstone. Although generally not toxic to humans, ammonia, however, has been classified as toxic to the environment, so use sparingly and carefully or simply stick with gentle soap and water!
