Amethyst Jewelry Care


Is Amethyst Jewelry Safe for Normal Wear?

Amethyst is a moderately tough gemstone, but all gemstones in the quartz family require proper care to prevent scratching. Sharp temperature changes can harm your amethyst jewelry. Certain household chemicals can also cause damage, so it's best to remove jewelry before cleaning or using harsh solutions.

How to Clean Amethyst Jewelry

Amethyst is February's birthstone and typically appears in shades of light purple. Warm water and gentle soap is the safest way to clean amethyst jewelry. Do not use steam cleaners.

Other Ways to Clean Amethyst Jewelry

It may be safe to use an ultrasonic cleaner on amethyst jewelry. Speak to a KAY associate. And remember, you can always take advantage of KAY's free jewelry cleaning services.

How to Store Amethyst Jewelry

Wrap amethyst jewelry in a soft cloth to avoid scratching and keep separate from harder gemstones, like diamonds.
