Colorless diamonds are the first love of every girl out there. Having said that when it comes to confessing the heartfelt emotions of love, affection, and commitment, nobody stands the chance to outshine the bewitching brilliance and scarlet love vibes of rubies, the king of all gemstones. In the finest appearance, the ruby necklace exudes unmatched sophistication and beauty at its prime and the blood-red purplish hues take the entire credit for it.

If you own a fine-quality ruby in your collection, you will completely relate to our thoughts. But flaunting your ruby jewelry on multiple occasions should not be the ultimate goal of your life, cleaning them from time to time should also take priority. If you are wondering how to keep your red gemstone forever shining, then this article is going to provide you with some tips on how to take good care of every piece of ruby jewelry you possess and not just your ruby necklace.

Tip 1: A Big No During Laborious Activities

We know rubies are the strongest in the game (with a hardness score of 9 on the 10-point Mohs hardness scale) after the mighty diamonds but that doesn’t make the red gem invincible in the world. Rubies can surely resist everyday weathering and scratching, but after all, they are just solidified blocks of mineral that might not sustain a violent hit against a very tough or scratchy surface. So, make it a habit to take off your ruby jewelry while you are performing any physically demanding activity, such as working out in a gym, playing sports, gardening, etc.

Tip 2: Avoid Direct Contact with Make-Up Essentials

We know you can’t step foot outside without fixing your makeup and we do encourage touch-ups if that keeps your confidence and attraction level up. But if rubies are in the vicinity, you need to be extra alert.

Though the chemicals from the perfume you wear or the lotion you apply to your body will keep you refreshed and moisturized for hours, the chemicals in these products may hurt the luster of your natural ruby necklace or your ruby ring. So make sure you put on your makeup before putting on your ruby jewelry and remove it first before cleaning the makeup residue.

Tip 3: Keep Distance with Harsh Household Chemicals

Are you in charge of cleaning your home today? Well, then you will be dealing with cleaning agents with strong acidic solutions and whatnot. These cleaning substances might or might not do wonders on the stains but may expose your ruby rings or bracelets to potential harm from the harsh chemicals present in the cleaning agents. Similarly, certain acidic substances in the kitchen such as vinegar, lemon, and boric acid can play havoc with your rubies, scratching the surface of the gemstones.

Tip 4: Ready for Shower At Home

Your genuine ruby necklace, earrings, rings, and bracelets can take a refreshing bath at home. All you need is a bowl of mild soapy solution, a soft brush, and a soft piece of cloth. First, soak your jewelry in lukewarm soap water for a few minutes. Next, take a very soft brush or cloth to gently remove any dirt or grease on your ruby jewelry.

After that, wash your jewelry in a bowl of clean water. Avoid cleaning under running tap water or your precious jewelry might accidentally go down the drain. Finally, dry your jewelry with a soft cloth to remove moisture and here you go, your old ruby jewelry is as sparkling as a new one purchased from the store.

Tip 5: Ultrasonic Wash & Check-up At Jewelers

You can consider taking your rubies to your jeweler for regular follow-ups that include checking and fixing loose settings. Since rubies are quite tough, your jeweler can also take care of a thorough cleaning of your ruby jewelry with an ultrasonic or steam cleaner. However, if your ruby gemstones have been treated for fractures then the extreme pressure of electrical cleaning appliances may shatter your rubies. In such situations, cleaning at home with a soap solution sounds like the best deal.

Rubies are pretty tough buddies which is why keeping them safe against harder diamonds is as essential as protecting other softer gemstones from your rubies. The best way to ensure this is to put away your ruby gemstones and jewelry in a separate jewelry case or pouch.

By the way, have you already cracked a deal on a priceless ruby jewel or are you yet to add one to your jewelry collection? If it’s the latter case, GemsNY offers you a treat of a natural ruby necklace, a pair of ruby earrings, an eternity ruby bracelet, and a ruby ring for sale.
