Aquamarine Jewelry Care & Handling
Very brittle (7.5-8 Mohs scale) and sensitive to pressure, high temperatures will lead the aquamarine to discolor. Carefully clean your aquamarine jewelry in soapy warm water with a soft cloth. Do not use a home ultrasonic machine to clean aquamarine. Take care to protect aquamarine jewelry from sharp blows and scratches. In addition, aquamarine will fade if it is left in the sun, so remember to leave it away from window sills. We suggest wrapping your aquamarine necklaces, rings and precious aquamarine jewelry in a soft cloth and storing in your Ross-Simons presentation box to preserve the beauty of your aquamarine jewels.
