This is the second part in the Dos and Don’ts for Jewelry Care series. Below, please find cleaning instructions on a few of the more popular gemstones. Please contact me or another professional for any gemstone you don’t see listed. Remember better safe than sorry! Oh, one more thing, very few gemstones or precious metals can withstand long periods of soaking in a cleaning solution.
I have not a had a chance to post this week! My intentions were to post Wednesday but it has turned out to be a very full week. After my day trip to NYC on Monday for the summer jewelry show it has been chaos, good chaos but…nonetheless. Needless to say, I have been stretched in several different directions.
On the other hand, I feel like summer has really arrived. I know I am late to the party but better late than never, no? Monday was a wonderful day but a whirlwind. I left the house at 5:45 a.m. and got home at 10:45 p.m. after having my first train breakdown in New Jersey, that was the bad news. The good news is I just got off the phone with Amtrak and they refunded that leg of the trip. Thank you Amtrak!!
