Hints and Tips
Before cleaning

  • Be careful about using this method for jewellery. Stones such as diamonds and opals are very delicate and plunging diamonds into hot water can cause problems. All diamonds usually have naturally occurring faults in them and excessive heat can ‘milk’ them: causing them to go a white colour and this is permanent.
  • Don’t leave items in for too long or they will turn black
After cleaning
  • If blackening does happen, simply wash the items in warm soapy water and start all over again.
