Factors that affect semiprecious gemstones longevity

Care and preserving of your semiprecious gemstone jewelry

I have discussed how semiprecious gemstones are measured for their hardness, their density and the natural variations within each gemstone. I have also explained why you should cleanse your semiprecious gemstones on a regular basis. In addition, you should also preserve your gemstones beauty and quality, because the value of gemstones rarely depreciate, they always appreciate, due to the fact they are not limitless.

All semiprecious gemstone jewelry should be kept in a protective soft cloth bag when not in use. The rays of the Sun can cause color deterioration or fading with some gemstones, especially with amethysts, corals and chalcedonys, but not diamonds. Therefore, if you live in a hot, sunny climate, any semiprecious gemstones that might be vulnerable to color change should be worn in the shade, indoor only, or for evening wear. Don’t take a bath or shower or do the dishes with your gemstone jewelry on, as water may be a threat to their beauty and value, including diamonds. Remember the rockhound adage, “put your gemstone jewelry on last, take your gemstone jewelry off first.”
