I just saw your comment…

I will post here what my jewelry designer told me.

1.  You can clean with a soft brush and gental soap like ivory.

2.  You can clean it with an ionic cleaner.  This is how my designer cleans all her jewelry.

Here you go ladies, even if you dont have a sonic cleaner this is a great video. Especially if you have a coffee machine. Watch the end if nothing else the blow dryer is your friend!

@dewingedpixie:  I’ve watched this video.  And I have 2 questions…  Will water that steaming hot damage rings made of sterling?  And I hear pouring boiling water over a sapphire is not recommended.  So, what is the difference in holding the ring under coffee maker hot water and boiling water?  Or is it just not true that boiling water can cause damage on the surface of sapphires?

@chica95110:  From what I know.The only sapphires that cant be treated with hot water are those that are fracture filled or oiled. Very few sapphires have this these days and they are the lowest quality on the market. I am not certain about the silver though. I have put my sapphire in a steam cleaner numerous times.
