How to Clean Jewelry

I like to clean my jewelry that I wear regularly about once a week. I have a little jar of cleaner that I normally use but I’m going to share with you a diy jewelry cleaning solution that works just as well. You will need:
Water
Mild soap
Rubbing Alcohol*
*If you are cleaning opals, pearls or other soft stones, do not add the alcohol. Also, do not use this solution for porous or non solid stones as any liquid may damage this type of stone.
This diy cleaner works well for precious and semi precious stones like diamonds, rubies, topaz ect. I cleaned my white gold diamond ring, a yellow gold topaz ring and earrings.
For tips to help keep your jewelry clean, check out the blog post.

    as a dog groomer, I use a lot of different soaps, and the one that I found cleans diamonds and other precious and semi-precious jewelry stones is Nature's Specialties' Plum Shampoo. The stuff is amazing, better than any dish soap, including Dawn.

    Ammonia and warm soap, too, for rings as well as combs & brushes. Let them sit for about 10 minutes, and a gentle touch will have the grunge falling away.

    I would use it on diamonds but I definitely wouldn't recommend it for tanzanite or pearls. I have had tanzanite lighten up after using any kind of chemicals.
