This year, I want to start something a little new. I’m going to feature a jewelry care tip or jewelry educational snippet each month. I’m also resurrecting my newsletter with lots of new and exciting information including gemstone facts, jewelry care, product features and much more! Please be sure to sign up for the newsletter! I promise, I won’t spam you with a lot of emails…I really don’t have time for that and I don’t care for it myself!
For the month of January…the focus is on cleaning your soft stone jewelry. For soft stones, such as turquoise, opal, kyanite, amber, lapis., etc. I recommend only using a soft cloth or jeweler’s cloth. These stones can be very porous and absorb chemicals quickly. Avoid using lotions or wearing these stones in the shower as well. Also…avoid wearing your fine jewelry while swimming, especially around chlorine as chlorine will permanently etch sterling silver.
I hope you found these tips helpful!
All the Best!
