How to clean emeralds and emerald jewellery

By Pippa Thompson

Connoisseurs, the world leader in jewellery care, offers several different emerald cleaners, depending on your personal preference.

A word about treated emeralds

Most emeralds sold at jewellery stores today are enhanced in some way. Emeralds are typically treated with oils or other fillers to help reduce the visibility of minor fractures and improve the apparent clarity of the stone.

In order to retain these necessary oils and fillers, Connoisseurs recommends using any one or all of these specially formulated emerald cleaners: Dazzle Drops Advanced Jewellery Cleaner, Precious Jewellery Cleaner, Delicate Jewellery Cleaner and Diamond Dazzle Stik.

Wet the brush for best results

If you think your emerald has been treated, Connoisseurs recommend that you do not submerge the emerald in the Dazzle Drops, Precious Jewellery Cleaner or Delicate Jewellery Cleaner cleaning liquid. Instead, simply wet the brush and jewellery with the cleaner and use the brush to clean without submerging your jewellery.

After cleaning, simply rinse with warm water and dry with a lint-free cloth.

Cleaning Emeralds on-the-go

Diamond Dazzle Stik, now with a longer lasting formula, is perfect for cleaning emeralds (as well as diamonds and all precious jewellery) on-the-go. Just wet the brush and jewellery with water, and turn the end of the Diamond Dazzle Stik until the blue cleaner appears on the brush.

Use the Diamond Dazzle Stik brush to clean your jewellery between prongs and under settings. Then, rinse with warm water and dry with a lint-free cloth.

Connoisseurs does not recommend using ultrasonic machines on emeralds or emerald jewellery.
