-Gold is a soft metal prone to scratching, and is usually mixed with other alloy metals to increase it’s hardness.
-Gold has a tendency to tarnish, depending on the percentage of other metals mixed with the gold.
-The best way to clean gold jewelry is to take it to a professional jeweler for cleaning. Ruby is the red variety of the mineral corundum, colored by the element chromium. All other colors of gem-quality corundum are called sapphire, which means color is key for this royal gemstone. Accordingly, the name “ruby” comes from rubeus, the Latin word for red. In ancient Sanskrit, ruby translated to ratnaraj, which meant “king of precious stones.” These fiery gems have been treasured throughout history for their color and vitality. The chromium that gives ruby its red color also causes fluorescence, which makes rubies glow like a fire from within. Paradoxically, chromium is also what makes this gem scarce because it can cause cracks and fissures. Few rubies actually grow large enough to crystallize into fine quality gems, and these can bring even higher prices than diamonds. Ruby’s strength and red fluorescence make it valuable for applications beyond jewelry. Both natural and synthetic rubies are used in watchmaking, medical instruments, and lasers.
-Ultrasonic and steam cleaners are usually safe for untreated, heat-treated, and lattice diffusion treated stones.
-Fracture-filled, cavity-filled, or dyed material should only be cleaned with a damp cloth.
