Caring For Your Sapphire

Find out how easy it is to care for your sapphire

Sapphires are easy to care for at home. Sapphires can be cleaned at home with warm water and a splash of any type of dish or cleaning detergent that has degreasing ability. Avoid using anything that has moisturizers, abrasives or anti-static agents, as they will leave a residue and scratch the metal. Scrub gently with a soft toothbrush and rinse well. Dry with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, allow the piece to soak for 10 to 20 minutes, and then follow the remaining steps of the above procedure. This process should only be used with sapphires set in gold or platinum as many detergents can react poorly with silver. You can also use any cleaner that is specifically designed for use with jewelry.
