If it isn’t possible to come in to your jeweler and have your jewelry professionally cleaned and checked, then here are some tips you can use at home.

 

1.  Use a bit of liquid dish detergent mixed with warm water.

2.  Take a soft toothbrush that you wet with the soapy water and go over the entire piece to get out dirt and oils.

3.  Rinse well.

4.  Be particularly careful of the softer stones like opal and pearl when you are cleaning.
