August: Peridot

The Best Peridot Jewelry Cleaner

How to Clean Peridot

Peridot is a relatively durable gemstone — scoring 7 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness.  As with all gemstones, care should be taken to protect peridot from scratches and sharp blows. Avoid wearing your peridot jewelry when cleaning, gardening or at the gym.

To maintain the brilliance of peridot, the August birthstone, it should be properly cleaned on a regular basis.

The best way to clean peridot set in gold or platinum is to use Connoisseurs Dazzle Drops Advanced Jewelry Cleaner, the cleaner that makes fresh solution every time for the most effective cleaning.

Also try Connoisseurs Fine Jewelry Cleaner in the familiar red jar.

If your peridot jewelry is set in silver, try our Dazzle Drops Silver Cleansing Crème.  It cleans and removes tarnish from silver but is safe on all gemstones.
