A polishing cloth can be used if
you only need a light cleaning. Polishing cloths can be purchased at
jewelry stores or the Internet.
One way to clean
stones is to spray a little cleaning agent onto a clean soft cloth or
paper toweling and wipe the surface of the rhinestones.
Brushes and q-tips
dipped in a little cleaner can be used to get into the hard to clean
areas. It is best to blot the brush or q-tip onto a cloth or paper
towel to take the excess water out. Remember….we do not want water or
cleaner getting behind the stones.
not use toothbrushes on Aurora Borealis stones.
These stones have a special coating applied to the surface to produce a
rainbow-colored sparkle and scratch easily.
Jewelry should be completely dry
before putting it away. You should lay it face down on a clear dry
cloth for a few hours to make sure it is dry. You can also go over your
jewelry with hair blow dryer set at a low or cold setting to make sure
that all the moisture is out.
Rhinestone jewelry will look
beautiful for years but perfume, hair spray and make-up will build up on
the rhinestones over time and they will loose some of their sparkle. We
suggest that you make your jewelry the last thing you put on before
going out so it will stay glitzy for years.
