We, and many other retailers offer jars of gold cleaner ready-to-use for yellow, rose, green and white gold. White gold has some extra steps, though, that we cover on our White Gold Care page (click here for a shortcut). We do highly advise that you check if there are any restrictions as to what kinds of stones can go into the cleaner, if your jewelry contains stones or beads. For example, pearls and opals are very delicate and often cannot be immersed (at least not for very long) in most cleaners and chemicals. For more information on how to clean pearl and opal jewelry, click here. Natural, genuine diamonds are typically not affected by cleaners and are generally safe to clean.
If you decide to skip the store-bought jewelry cleaners, we usually recommend a mixture of water and a soft dish soap. usually a few drops of a soft dish soap mixed into a cup or two of warm (not hot) water. if you would like, you can use a soft brush (think of the softness of an infant or toddler’s toothbrush) to gently brush any dirt or grime from underneath stones or in crevices. Rinse with clear water and dry immediately afterward with a soft cloth, such as a microfiber wipe.
