How do you care for ruby jewellery?
The July birthstone is very durable so it can withstand normal wearing conditions. Ruby is a great stone to put in rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces for everyday wear because it is easy to clean and less likely to break than other gemstones.
Jewellery containing the July birthstone can be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner using the proper solution. Heat treated rubies are safe to put into ultrasonic cleaners because they won’t reverse any treatment or damage the gemstone. Due to the heat and vibration that these types of cleaners use, if the ruby is fracture-filled, it should only be cleaned with a damp cloth.
Fracture-filling is a process where a transparent material like oil, wax, or glass, is put into deep crevices or scratches on a gemstone that interrupt with the way the light passes through it. The scratches may deflect the light and make the stone appear more dull.
Rubies are also able to endure contact with high temperatures and common chemicals as long as they are not fracture-filled or dyed.
