Continuing with the aquamarine jewelry care tips, here we go:

  • Aquamarine fades with prolonged exposure to light, so that should be avoided as much as possible and it should be stored away from sunlight.
  • It has very good hardness and is durable enough, but still can develop internal cracks if knocked hard. Larger gemstone Jewelry should be worn with care.
  • It needs to be cleaned regularly, to retain its brilliance. It can loose luster, with deposits of dirt and oil on surface.
  • You can use normal soapy water to clean it and dry it with a soft clean cloth. Use of hash chemicals and ultrasonic cleaning should be avoided.
  • Extreme temperature can cause damage to jewelry, so it should be stored in a cool dry place.

Thats all from this series on Aquamarine, we would be coming up with a new stone soon for next month. You can email us your suggestions to, if you want any gemstone to be chosen in particular. Till then, keep rocking!
