Special Care Requirements

Gemstones that have been treated may require special care. If you are uncertain about the right care for your stone, visit our Gemstone Guide for more information about specific gemstones and their special care requirements.

Exposing gemstones to extreme heat, excessive light, chemicals and ultrasonic, steam or abrasive cleaning should be avoided. Generally, gemstones should only be gently cleaned by rinsing in warm water and drying with a soft cloth. Proper care is required in jewelry repair as extreme heat can damage gemstones and/or treatments.
