You asked, we listened! We've had an influx of questions about how to clean jewelry that was caught in #HurricaneHarvey
flood waters. This is our initial post, kicking off a #TenenbaumTips
series that will help answer your questions!
What is the best way to clean gold and platinum jewelry?
If cleaning the item in a mild soap and water mixture isn't enough, you may immerse it in a jar containing a solution of 1/3 ammonia and 2/3 water. You can either quickly dip the piece or if dirt has really settled in, try soaking it in the solution overnight. Next, brush with a soft toothbrush, rinse in clean water and pat dry.
You can also use this technique for cleaning diamond, ruby and sapphire jewelry!
However, these are the ONLY gemstones that can take heat and therefore may be cleaned in an ammonia solution. Stay tuned for how to best care for other stones. 🌈
