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.
Add a little squirt of dish soap
Add warm water
Add one capful of rubbing alcohol
Soak for five minutes
Scrub with a soft brush
Dry with a lint free cloth.

    I would use it on Diamonds only. Any other Stones are to precious to use in harsh chemicals. I would Not even recommend using jewelry cleaners on anything But Diamonds. That is all we put in the Diamond Stones, you can use a brush and lightly brush your precious stones, BUT NEVER let them sit in the solution.
