|How to take care of your emerald|
Be Gentle 🔑
The first key of how to take care of your emerald. Emeralds are remotely brittle and can be damaged by heat, vibration, or chemicals. It's too lamentable that other jewelers do not inculcate their customers about how to care for their prized possessions. Here are a few tips.
For marginally more tough dried up dirt gently scrubbing with a soft toothbrush, but if you're cleaning jewelry, be meticulous not to scrub highly polished metal surfaces, as the marginal abrasive action of the brush will engender marginally nebulous effects on the metal.
When taking care of your emerald, abstracting light marks or dirt from your stone, it's conventionally best to rinse them with clean water and dry with a soft cloths. Additionally, store jewelry and loose emeralds in separate padded compartments or wrapped in soft lint-free cloth to avert scratching, chipping, entanglement or even losing it. Ascertain where ever you are cleaning your emerald to hold it tightly from slipping off your hand because trying to relocate the emerald is another story. 😅
Being a bit more careful
Before you even think of grabbing that bottle of lotion or creams, remove your ring to avert heavy build up of oil and dirt that over time will dry around the pavilion which will make your emerald seem nebulous or less appealing.
If you plan to do heavy or dirty work with your hands, abstract your rings so they will not be subjected to astringent blows, abrasives, or nonessential dirt. Even diamonds are relatively brittle and can be chipped by a hard blow.
Be cautious about the utilization of ultrasonic cleaners. Most emeralds are "oiled" ultrasound may abstract the treatment or expand subsisting fractures. If you are not absolutely SURE it's safe, don't put your emerald in ultrasound!

Always be conscientious to who you give your jewelry to for repair. Emeralds are a different subject from diamonds and most jewelers don't know how to work with them. always check your jewelry or take a picture of it before you hand them your rare and most prized investment. Some jewelers linger too long with a torch during prong work and can burn the emerald. It's often safest to abstract them before working on a setting. Emeralds should never be exposed to extreme heat.
If one prong of a four-prong setting breaks, it often results in the loss of a stone. Six prong settings are more secure. If a prong is weak or broken, it's usually best to supersede the head than to endeavor retouching prongs.
Bezel settings offer more protection for any stone, but they make it more arduous to abstract and reset stones if the stone needs repolishing or if alterations of the metalwork are required. Setting can also be hazardous. It's best to utilize high-karat gold, which is softer and more facilely bent into place. also, consider how the stone might be abstracted if compulsory. Sometimes, it may be best to utilize a false bezel setting and set the emerald from beneath, holding it in place with tabs.
