That I didn’t know!! Would the baby oil harm the metal the stone is set in though?? I have a beautiful opal ring that I am terrified to wear in fear of harming it!

Wow that is so cool! Imagine the pretty decorative bottles and things you could buy to keep your opal jewelry in (yup.. that’s where my mind went first.)

Here’s a good website with care info:  http://www.aussietreasurechest.com.au/A%20Guide%20to%20Opal%20Care.asp

I wore a 3 stone opal ring for years and never had any issues with it.  I used a jewelry polishing cloth on the yellow gold setting, and would sometimes dip the band part (not the stones) in jewelry cleaning solution. 

When I had the ring sized they had to remove all the stones first.  Cost me a fortune but it was gorgeous!

Wow, that is very cool. Though I’m not sure I’d like to have to clean baby oil off my necklace every time I wear it. Water though would be awesome!

I’m an October baby so I have a lot of opals. I but a dab of oil on a cloth and rub it on every couple of months.  I’ve never had a problem.
