Aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March. It belongs to the gemstone family the beryl, the same as the Emerald. Its name implies a connection to water, hence its long association with the tranquil blue of the sea.
The best way to clean aquamarine gemstones is with Connoisseurs Delicate Jewelry Cleaner. Submerge the jewelry in the cleaner using the strainer. Let it sit in the liquid cleaner for a few minutes. Next, remove the jewelry using the strainer and brush the jewelry with the specialized jewelry brush. Make sure to use the brush to get between the prongs and under the stone. Rinse with warm water and dry with a lint free cloth.
To maintain its brilliance it’s necessary to clean your jewelry frequently so oils, lotions and dirt will not build up on the stones surface and cause it to look dull. Ultrasonic machines are not recommended.
