Cleaning is must in gemstone
For stubborn dirt, a soft brush can also be used on these types of stones. In hot environments, the heat can cause the water to evaporate and discolor an opal. Jewellers use mechanical cleaning procedures to clean gemstones. Some of these methods can be harmful if done incorrectly, so ensure that the cleaning is being performed by a qualified professional.
One common method is ultrasonic cleaning, which uses frequency waves to clean gemstones. They can be cleaned in the same mild detergent and water solution as other gemstones, and delicately scrubbed with a very soft brush. Designer jewellery can cover the gamut of rings, engagement and wedding rings, watches, necklaces and pendants, bracelets and anklets, cuff links, tiaras and other unusual pieces.
