How Do I Clean Silver?
Some cleaners which are ideal for sterling silver may be too harsh for the set gemstone. If gem-set, use a soft toothbrush to gently clean the surfaces of the gemstones. Ultrasonic cleaners are not recommended. Natural body oils, soap and regular daily dust can build up on your jewellery.
If more serious cleaning is required, then use a good jeweller’s rouge or jewellery cleaning dip. They can damage pearls and gem-set jewellery. A mild soap in water is usually enough to clean it. Remember the backs! Gently pat the jewellery dry. However, if your silver is gem-set see below for advice on specific gemstones to be sure what is safe to use.
How to care Gemstone?
To remove any detergent, rinse the stone in the same temperature water as the soaking solution. This type of stone can be strung on silk or nylon thread, the silk being a better choice because it fails to accumulate as much dirt as nylon. For diamonds, sapphires, and rubies, bring an equal mixture of household cleaner and water to a boil.
Opals contain almost one-third water and are therefore particularly vulnerable to even moderate temperature changes. Remove from heat and allow the gemstones to soak in the solution until it cools. Thermal shock happens when a stone is instantly transported from one extreme temperature to another. They are all nature's gifts to us. There are more than 40 popular gem varieties and many rarer collector gemstones.
Diamonds boast many features
Diamonds boast many features that make them stand out from other gemstones. Diamonds are now sold online at safe, reputable, and secure sites. The good news is that consumers need no longer purchase a diamond in a physical jewelry store. One of the best features is that they are naturally available in a wide range of colors, giving consumers many options when it comes to creating a customized piece of jewelry.
While individuals often pay more for a fancy gemstone, white diamonds with a slight hint of color will be less expensive than truly colorless diamonds. Clarity and weight are other important qualities when it comes to diamonds. The modern diamond comes in a wide range of prices, meaning that almost anyone can afford a diamond of some kind. Unlike the brown and yellow diamonds, blue diamonds are not as common in nature.
