Gemstone Cleaning

Caring for Gemstone Jewelry

Colored gemstone jewelry should be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth.

Maintaining Brilliance

Bridal jewelry, such as engagement rings and wedding bands are typically worn daily, and can appear like they've lost their sparkle if not cleaned on a regular basis. Lotions put film on diamonds and reduce their shininess. Don't wear diamond jewelry while doing rough work. Avoid chlorinated pools and hot tubs. Avoid touching diamonds with your fingers, as smudges can affect a diamond's luster and fire.

Clarity Enhanced Stones

For color or clarity enhanced gemstones, ask a Scott & Company Fine Jewelers professional about cleaning and repair for your gemstone jewelry. For more information about each particular gemstone, read our gemstone guide.
