How to Preserve the Beauty of Your Sapphire Jewelry

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

It is recommended that you have your sapphire jewelry cleaned and inspected by a professional once every six months. In addition to ensuring that your one-of-a-kind, natural, untreated sapphire engagement ring sparkles and shines just as brilliantly as the day you first laid eyes on it, a routine examination of your ring will also guarantee that your sapphire will remain in its original state, that your diamonds will remain safe, and that your ring will keep its stunning polish. It's a fact of life that we all move our hands around quite a bit, so there's no need to feel embarrassed if you scratched the surface of the granite counter with your ring. The skilled jewelers at Diamond Registry will see to it that your sapphire ring receives the attention and care it requires, as well as the thorough cleaning that such a stunning sapphire merits.

If it's been a few months since you proposed, or if it's been six months since your last cleaning and inspection, it's possible that your sapphire engagement ring doesn't look as pretty as it did the first time you opened the little box it came in. Don't fret! As long as you take precautions and follow the instructions I give you, cleaning your sapphire engagement ring is not only simple but also completely risk-free.

The majority of your jewelry can be safely cleaned by using a gentle tooth brush, some warm water, and a dish soap that is not harsh and does not contain any abrasives. The precious metals that hold your sapphire are quite soft, despite the fact that your sapphire has a hardness of 9, which is second only to that of diamond. On the Mohs scale, gold alloys fall anywhere between a softness rating of 2.5 and a harshness rating of 4. Platinum has a value of 3.5, while palladium has a value of 4.5. You might believe that your facial scrub will be an effective way to quickly remove dirt and grime from your sapphire engagement ring, but the pumice contained in your facial scrub has a hardness of 6, whereas the calcium contained in toothpaste only has a hardness of 3. Any type of abrasive is dangerous for jewelry to be around.

Check that you have warm water, mild dish soap, and a soft toothbrush! Now, when you're cleaning your ring, be very careful. Be wary of hazards such as open drains in the sink or long descents to hard floors. To make matters even better, why don't you just take a seat at the table with the bowl of hot water? You can remove the grime from your sapphire engagement ring by letting it soak in water for a while. This works best if the ring is particularly dirty. Use the toothbrush with the soft bristles to give your sapphire and your sapphire jewelry a light scrubbing. Repeat the process of rinsing and drying with a clean and gentle cloth if it is required. There are a number of different methods that can be used to clean your home, as well as products that have been developed specifically to assist with soaking and the cleaning process. Even though they are available for home use, ultrasonic cleaning machines still require a great deal of caution when it comes to the types of jewelry that can be placed inside of one. Never put anything organic in an ultrasonic cleaner, such as pearls or amber. Also, never put anything porous, such as lapis lazuli or turquoise, and never put a gem that has been treated with fillers. Most emeralds fall into this category. The only thing you need to watch out for when it comes to ultrasonic cleaning with sapphire jewelry is to make sure that your sapphire jewelry is not rubbing against the sides of the machine or anything else that you might be cleaning. Because these machines use ultrasonic vibration to clean, you need to be careful that the metal in your jewelry does not sustain any unnecessary wear while it is being cleaned by one of these machines.

Don't be afraid to get your sapphire jewelry dirty; live life to the fullest; your sapphire's beauty will always be there. Now that you know how to clean and care for your sapphire jewelry, a final piece of advice: Don't be afraid to get your sapphire jewelry dirty.
