Welcome to Nazar's & co. Jewelers!

Aquamarine stones are beautiful gems that can be found in a variety of jewelry pieces. Whether it’s a ring, necklace, bracelet, or other accessories, it’s important to properly take care of your aquamarine to ensure it looks its best and lasts for years to come. Failure to do so could lead to damage or a diminished appearance. Learn how to care for your aquamarine. 

Can You Wear Aquamarine Every Day?

Some stones are soft and shouldn’t be worn every day. Aquamarine is a stone that can be worn each day because it’s relatively hard and can withstand normal wear and tear. It rates 7.5-8 on the Mohs hardness scale, compared to a diamond which rates a 10.  Despite the stone’s durability, you should still be careful with your aquamarine jewelry to avoid accidental damage. 

How Do You Clean Aquamarine?

Aquamarine jewelry should be cleaned regularly. This helps make sure it looks its best and lasts for as long as possible. To clean aquamarine, you must: 

  1. Fill a bowl with warm water.
  2. Add a few drops of dish soap and make a sudsy mix.
  3. Let the stone sit in the water for 5-10 minutes. 
  4. Lightly scrub the stone with a soft-bristled brush.
  5. Rinse the stone with warm water and dry with a microfiber cloth. 

If there are precious metals or other accent gemstones on your aquamarine jewelry, be sure to check their care instructions. Softer gems and metals may not be able to soak in the water. 

Aquamarine Care Tips

Alcohol- and ammonia-containing products should always be kept away from aquamarine. Avoid contact with abrasive materials like hard-bristled brushes, sandpaper, nail files, scrubbing clothes, and other rough items. Store aquamarine jewelry away from other pieces, especially diamond jewelry, that can scratch the stone. Because aquamarine boasts a beautiful greenish-blue hue, it will look its best when kept clean and polished to avoid a cloudy or smudged appearance. 

Like all gemstones, aquamarine should be taken care of. With regular cleaning, the use of soft materials, and avoiding harsh cleaners and rough items, you can keep your stone looking beautiful.
