Tools and Materials Needed for Cleaning Morganite Jewelry
Before you start the cleaning process, ensure you have all the necessary tools and materials at hand:
- Soft, non-abrasive cloth
- Mild dish soap
- Warm water
- Soft bristle toothbrush
These tools can easily be found in your home or local stores.
Step-by-Step Guide on Cleaning Morganite Jewelry
Begin by using a soft cloth to gently remove any visible dirt or grime on the surface. Afterward, pre-soak the jewelry piece in a solution of warm water and mild dish soap for about 15-20 minutes.
After soaking, dip a soft-bristle toothbrush in the cleaning solution and gently brush the morganite and the surrounding setting. Rinse the jewelry under warm running water and then thoroughly dry it using a soft cloth.
Advanced Cleaning Techniques
For stubborn dirt or stains, ultrasonic cleaners can be used. However, we strongly recommend seeking the assistance of our expert team at Perry's Diamonds & Estate Jewelry when considering this method to avoid damaging your valuable morganite jewelry.
Prevention of Dirt and Damage
To prevent dirt build-up and potential damage, we recommend removing your morganite jewelry before engaging in tasks that could expose it to chemicals or abrasive materials. Proper storage is also crucial – store your pieces in a fabric-lined jewelry box to prevent scratching and tarnishing.
