Did you know that the March birthstone aquamarine is known to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to achieve calm and serenity? What a perfect gemstone for these turbulent times! Just the name “aquamarine” makes me relax; the cool blue-green color conjures up tropical islands and David Hockney-esque swimming pools. To help keep your aquamarines looking their sparkling best, let’s explore how to clean aquamarine jewelry. I consulted with the experts at Connoisseurs…they always have great advice for the jewelry obsessed!
Dazzle Drops: Fresh Solution Every Time
Whether your aquamarine jewelry is set in platinum, gold or silver, Connoisseurs recommends Dazzle Drops Advanced Jewelry Cleaner. It’s their non-toxic jewelry cleaner that makes fresh solution every time for the most effective cleaning. Here’s how to use it:
- Fill the cleansing container three-quarters full with warm water and drop 10 drops of the Advanced cleansing solution in the water.
- Next, submerge your aquamarine jewelry in the jar of jewelry cleaner for a few minutes.
- Remove the jewelry using the strainer and brush it gently using the specialized cleaning brush. Make sure you use the brush to clean under the stones and in between prongs.
- Rinse your jewelry with warm water and dry with a lint-cloth. Discard the used liquid. Your jewelry will dazzle like the day you bought it!

We’re very proud to be the #1 jewelry cleaner in the world.”
