Caring for Your Sapphire

The Effort Required in Cleaning your Sapphire
Sapphires do require maintenance but they don’t require trips to the jeweler. They can be easily cleaned at home with warm water and a dash of dish washing detergent, or any chemical that has ability to degrease it. Moisturizers, anti-static agents and abrasives however should be avoided at all costs. Use a toothbrush to scrub the sapphire and finally dry it with a cloth. Soak the gemstone for 20 minutes for advanced cleaning and then follow the same steps as above. This soaking method should only be used for sapphires that have been set in platinum or gold.
