Gemstone Treatments and Care Table


SapphireHeat (unless specified as unheated in the product details)Caring for sapphires is easy and can be done at home. You can clean sapphires using any jewelry-specific cleaner. If set in gold or platinum, a mixture of warm water and a small amount of grease-removing dish soap or cleaning detergent can be used. It is important to avoid products containing moisturizers, abrasives, or anti-static agents, as they can leave residues and scratch the metal.

Gently scrub the gemstone with a soft-bristle toothbrush, rinse thoroughly, and dry with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, you can let the piece soak for 10 to 20 minutes before following the aforementioned steps. Note that this cleaning process should not be used for sapphires set in silver, as certain detergents may react negatively with silver.


RubyHeat (unless specified as unheated in the product details)Cleaning rubies at home is a simple process. You can use a jewelry-specific cleaner or, if set in gold or platinum, a mixture of warm water and a small amount of grease-removing dish soap or cleaning detergent. Avoid using products with moisturizers, abrasives, or anti-static agents to prevent residue and scratches.

Gently scrub the gemstone with a soft-bristle toothbrush, rinse well, and dry with a soft cloth.

EmeraldInfusion – OilingEmeralds require gentle handling due to their brittleness. Avoid cleaning techniques involving chemicals, high heat, or steam, as they can cause the gem to break or the oil filler to dissipate. Exercise caution when wearing emerald jewelry, as emeralds are prone to fracturing if roughly handled.
