Jewelry Care Guide

Unlock the Secrets to Timeless Beauty: Your Ultimate Jewelry Care Guide

Jewelry is more than just adornment; it's a treasure, a reflection of your style, and a keeper of memories. At Nebulae & Mira, we understand the significance of your jewelry and want to help you keep it looking as exquisite as the day you acquired it.

Our guide offers practical insights on how to care for each type of jewelry, from cleaning to storage and maintenance, ensuring that every piece remains a symbol of enduring beauty.


  • Cleaning: Moissanite is a durable gemstone, but it can still accumulate dirt and oils from everyday wear. To clean it, mix mild dish soap with warm water. Soak your moissanite jewelry for about 30 minutes, then gently scrub it with a soft brush to remove any residue. Rinse and pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Moissanite is resistant to most chemicals, but it's best to avoid exposure to harsh chemicals, like bleach or chlorine, as they can affect the appearance of the setting and other metals in your jewelry.

  • Storage: Store your moissanite jewelry separately from other jewelry pieces to prevent scratches. Consider using a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch.

  • Regular Inspections: Periodically check the prongs or settings holding your moissanite. If you notice any loose stones or damage, have them repaired by a professional jeweler.


  • Specific Care: Different gemstones have various levels of hardness and durability. Research the specific care guidelines for your gemstone. Some, like opals and pearls, are more delicate and require gentle handling and cleaning.

  • Cleaning: In most cases, you can clean gemstone jewelry with warm, soapy water and a soft brush. However, avoid immersing porous gemstones (like opals) in water, as it can damage them. Instead, wipe them with a damp cloth.

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can fade certain gemstone colors. Store gemstone jewelry in a cool, dark place when not in use.

  • Setting Check: Regularly inspect the settings and prongs, as with moissanite, to ensure that your gemstones are secure.

Sterling Silver

  • Cleaning: Clean your sterling silver jewelry with a silver-polishing cloth or a mixture of baking soda and water. Gently rub the surface, rinse, and pat dry.

  • Tarnish Prevention: To prevent tarnishing, store your silver jewelry in an airtight container or a tarnish-resistant jewelry pouch.

  • Avoid Humidity: Sterling silver can tarnish faster in humid environments, so store it in a dry place.

  • Polishing: Regularly polishing your silver jewelry will help maintain its shine.


  • Cleaning: To clean gold jewelry, mix a mild dish soap with warm water. Soak the jewelry for a few minutes and gently scrub it with a soft brush. Rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

  • Polishing: Gold jewelry can develop a patina or tarnish over time. Use a gold-polishing cloth or take your jewelry to a professional jeweler for polishing.

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Remove gold jewelry before using household chemicals or swimming in chlorinated water to prevent damage.


  • Cleaning: Mix mild dish soap with warm water and soak your platinum jewelry for a few minutes. Gently scrub it with a soft brush, rinse, and pat dry.

  • Polishing: Platinum jewelry tends to develop a matte finish over time. You can restore its shine by taking it to a jeweler for professional polishing.

  • Durability: Platinum is highly durable and resistant to tarnishing and corrosion, making it an excellent choice for fine jewelry. However, like other metals, it can still scratch and lose its luster with time.


  • Regular Cleaning: Clean your moissanite jewelry with mild soap and warm water, or use a jewelry cleaner. Gently scrub with a soft brush, rinse, and pat dry.

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: While moissanite is highly durable, it's best to keep it away from harsh chemicals like chlorine and bleach, which can dull its shine over time.

  • Store Separately: To prevent scratching, store your moissanite jewelry separately in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch.

  • Professional Checkups: Consider having your moissanite jewelry professionally inspected and cleaned periodically to maintain its brilliance.

Welcome to a world where jewelry care becomes an art, preserving the essence of your most cherished pieces.
