Rhinestone Cleaning

Hello Bling Lovers,

Cleaning rhinestones restores the brilliance of the stones. It can take a dull piece and make it a show stopper. I have been putting all of my vintage rhinestone jewelry into a mild jewelry cleaner, brushing the piece with a small soft toothbrush and then drying the piece. I use a hairdryer to make sure the piece is really dry. After that I leave the piece to air dry just to make sure water does not remove glue or othr wise damage the piece.

BUT I keep seeing warnings about foil backs on rhinestones being removed or damaged by dipping the pieces. I also see suggestions that the piece simply be wiped or brushed gently with a cotton swab. What do you think? Look at at the wonderful results I have gotten. Nothing seems easy. Bernie berniesvintage.com

    Rhinestone cleaning is really important and rhinestone jewelry can’t be dipped in liquid when it is cleaned just wipe it with alcohol then wipe it again with paper towel to dry it off. That’s what I’m doing with my Wholesale rhinestones.
