How To Clean An Aquamarine Stone

Hello, jewelry enthusiasts! Today, we're diving into the enchanting world of aquamarine stones. At Pineforest Jewelry, we treasure the unique beauty of each gemstone. Aquamarines are no exception, with their serene blue hues reminiscent of tranquil seas. In this guide, we’ll share our expert tips on how to keep your aquamarine jewelry sparkling just like the first day you fell in love with it.

Understanding the Elegance of Aquamarine

Aquamarine, a member of the beryl family, boasts a stunning range of blue shades. Its durability and clarity make it popular for everything from exquisite engagement rings to stylish fashion jewelry. 

However, to maintain its mesmerizing luster, proper care is vital. And who better to guide you than Pineforest Jewelry, where we’ve been crafting and caring for fine jewelry since Jim and Linda Mills founded our store?

Setting the Stage for a Perfect Clean

Before you begin, gather your tools: mild soap, a soft-bristled brush, and a lint-free cloth. Create a safe space for cleaning – we recommend a soft towel on a stable surface. Remember, at Pineforest Jewelry, we believe in caring for each piece as if it were our own. 

A Gentle Touch for a Lasting Shine

  • Rinse Gently: Begin by rinsing your aquamarine under lukewarm water. This step removes any loose dirt that could scratch the stone during cleaning.
  • Mild Soap Solution: Mix a bit of mild soap with water. At Pineforest Jewelry, we always suggest gentle cleaners to protect your precious stones.
  • Soft Scrubbing: Using a soft brush, gently scrub the stone. This gentle touch is a cornerstone of the "WOW Experience" we provide at Pineforest Jewelry.
  • Rinse Again: Remove soap residue by rinsing the stone under lukewarm water.
  • Dry and Shine: Pat your aquamarine dry with a lint-free cloth and admire its refreshed sparkle!
