Is Citrine Jewelry Safe for Normal Wear?

While citrine has a good toughness, all quartz family gemstones require extra care to prevent scratching. Sharp temperature changes can harm your citrine jewelry. It's best to remove citrine jewelry before cleaning or using harsh solutions, as certain household chemicals can also cause damage.

How to Clean Citrine Jewelry

Like most gemstones, you can gently clean your citrine jewelry with mild soap and warm water with a soft cloth. Make sure to remove all soapy residue and pat dry before letting air dry. Do not use steam cleaners.

Other Ways to Clean Citrine Jewelry

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

How to Store Citrine Jewelry

It's best to store your citrine jewelry separately from harder gemstones like sapphires and diamonds to avoid any scratching. You can also wrap your citrine jewelry in a soft cloth if you need to store your jewelry in the same jewelry box.
