Moonstones are not the toughest, nor the hardest type of stones that you could purchase. This means that you are going to need to make sure that you take particular care of them to protect your investment and ensure that you can wear the jewelry for a long time. Here are some cleaning and maintenance tips that you can follow for your moon ring.
1. Keep Your Moonstone Jewelry In Stable Temperatures
Moonstone is vulnerable to sudden fluctuations in temperature, which could cause it to crack into several pieces. If you decide to store your moonstone for a long period of time, make sure that you keep it in an area that is temperature controlled.
2. Take Your Moonstone Jewelry Off When Cleaning
Moonstones are also vulnerable to the chemicals that are found in many household cleaners. If you want to be sure that you don't accidentally wear away the shine of your jewelry, you need to be sure that you put it in a safe place while you are cleaning. Because moonstones are also relatively easy to scratch, you want to be sure that you take your jewelry off whenever you are doing anything strenuous, such as exercising, gardening, or playing sports.
3. Keep Your Moonstone Jewelry Away From Other, Harder Jewelry
Next, be sure that you are keeping your moonstone jewelry separate from your other jewelry, especially diamonds. Should your moonstones come into quick contact with a diamond, there is a good chance that the moonstone is going to be dented or scratched. To avoid this, store your moonstones together in a small, soft bag that is thick enough to protect against harder metals and gemstones if you are going to store all of your jewelry in the same jewelry box. Or, store your moonstones in a separate box. Try not to wear moonstone jewelry and any other jewelry at the same time for the same reason.
4. Clean Your Moonstone Jewelry By Soaking it in a Mild Solution
Take a small bowl of warm water and add a few drops of mild dish soap. Swirl the water around until the solution is mixed. Then, place your jewelry in the solution and leave them there for a few minutes. This will loosen the dirt. Carefully dry your jewelry with a very soft, microfiber cloth. This will allow your jewelry to be cleaned without accidentally being scratched.
