How to clean diamond jewelry & rings

While diamonds are one of the hardest natural substances found on earth, they still require care to avoid chips and to keep them looking as brilliant as when you received it. Using a mix of mild soap and warm water, gently dip your jewelry into the cleaning solution and use only a soft brush. Thoroughly rinse in lukewarm water. We also have complimentary jewelry cleaner available in all of our stores.

How to clean pearls jewelry 

Clean your pearl jewelry by wiping it with a soft cloth when you take it off, as traces of perfume, hair spray, or any acid-based cosmetics can cause damage to the pearl's nacre. If your pearl jewelry pieces show more soil than a soft cloth can remove, wash them carefully in mild soap and lukewarm water, rinse, gently blot with a soft cloth, and allow to air dry.

How to clean gemstone jewelry

Most gemstone jewelry is safe for home cleaning with a mild soap, lukewarm water, and a soft brush. However, certain gemstones are more sensitive to cleaners, so make sure you check out our cleaning instructions of specific gemstones on our Gemstone Care Guide >>

How to clean sterling silver jewelry

Sterling silver jewelry should be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution, allowing the water to bead up, then pat dry with a soft cloth. Over time, sterling silver will blacken or tarnish over time - don’t worry, it’s only natural. When tarnish first becomes visible, you may also choose to clean your jewelry with any fine silver polishes, clothes, or tarnish remover.
