Gold Jewelry

If you have a gold chain, bracelet, or ring without stones, you can clean it every few days to maintain its original aesthetic appeal. Make sure to keep your pure gold jewelry away from chlorine or it might get discolored.

Pearl Jewelry

You should wipe off pearl jewelry every time you take it off to prevent stains from acids in sweat. Put on your pearl jewelry after your toiletries to keep the chemicals from affecting the condition of the pearls. You should never wear pearls near household cleaners or they might get damaged.

Diamond Jewelry

If you want your diamonds to look as big and sparkly as possible you should clean them frequently. You can use jewelry cleaner or a mixture of water and ammonia to clean off the stone. Use a soft-bristled brush to break up any dirt that might be stuck in the setting. You should bring diamond jewelry to the jeweler once every six months to ensure that the mountings are still secure.

Precious Stone Jewelry

Other precious stones like opal and emeralds often need special kinds of cleaning to restore their original condition. You might want to take these precious stones to the jewelry store for professional cleanings that will keep them looking their best without causing any unnecessary damage.
