How to Care for Opals


We all know how luminous and gorgeous Opals are. But what we can sometimes forget is how soft and delicate these lovely gems are as well. Opals can easily become worn down but with some special love and care, these gorgeous stones can stay in pristine condition!

So here are some quick and easy tips on how to care for this precious gem.

 

 

1. Avoid wearing Opal Jewelry in areas that have a harsh environment. This includes things such as gardening or doing dishes. {1}

 

 

2. Remove rings while using chemicals, bleach, and cleaning fluids. {2}

 

 

2. Try to keep opals out of high temperature and low humidity extremes, which make them more subject to crack under these conditions. {}

 

 

4. Store Opals away from other jewelry to avoid scratching and wrap them in soft moist cotton if being put away for a long time. {3}

 

 

These are some simple rules to follow when caring for your lovely Opals. As long as you show these jewels a little bit TLC they will love you right back and stay looking gorgeous FOREVER!
