CARING FOR GOLD & NONPOROUS GEMSTONES

 The most important factor to consider before cleaning your gemstones is their hardness, which reflects their durability. To measure hardness the jewelry industry uses the Mohs Scale. This gem-trade standard measures the ability of a gem or mineral to resist abrasion damage. For instance, diamonds are placed as the hardest gemstones at ten and talc is the softest at one. Hard, or nonporous, gemstones include, among others: rubies, sapphires, topaz, spinel, quartz (amethyst and citrine), alexandrite, aquamarine, and garnet. ​


To safely care for gold and hard (nonporous) gemstones, Hagerty Jewel Clean is the most effective liquid formula for bathing dirty jewelry. Simply soak your gold in this cleaner and use the brush to remove caked on film.


 We offer Hagerty Jewelry Cleaner in the large container with a brush and jewelry cleaner crystals ready to pour and mix with regular tap water.

The container is available for $19.00 (including tax) and comes with free refills for the life of the container. Once the cleaning solution becomes dirty, dump it at home and just bring in the container and we will refill it for you.

This is our way of helping the environment any way we can.​
