Cleaning jewelry from home is actually quite an easy process. There are several products that you can buy to help with the process but the best and by far the cheapest option is to use dishwashing liquid and warm water.
 

Step 1: Fill up a bowl 

Fill a bowl with warm, not boiling, water and add a few drops of dishwashing liquid.
 

Step 2: Leave jewelry to soak 

put your jewelry into the water and leave for 10-15 minutes to soak.
 

Step 3: Scrub with a soft brush 

Use a soft-bristle toothbrush or paintbrush to loosen any stubborn dirt between settings or details.
 

Step 4: Rinse and dry 

Rinse under the tap and then dry the jewelry by gently patting it with a kitchen towel.
 

How to Clean Gold Rings with Gemstones 
 

You can clean your diamond, ruby, and sapphire jewellery easily and safely yourself using household items you probably already have, such as a soft toothbrush, warm water, and clear dish soap, however, please do not use this solution on any gemstone besides diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. It is safe to clean these three stones using this at-home cleaning method, but most other gemstones like emeralds, opals, and turquoise, for example, are too porous and delicate and will be negatively affected by these solutions.”
 

We recommend purchasing some cleaning and polishing cloths to help you with periodically repolishing your jewellery
 

Do seek advice about gemstones. 
 

Each gemstone has different characteristics, so we advise asking your jeweller about the best cleaning methods for your specific gemstone, however for a quick shine, wipe your gemstones with a gem cloth, these can be purchased at your local jeweler. Don’t use harsh cleaning products. 
 

The type of cleaning product you use is crucial. Avoid any cleaning products that are too strong like bleach and if unsure do a test patch on an inconspicuous area first.
