Opal jewelry handmade next cleaning step for your opal ring handmade we need to empty out and remove all the old dirty water, replace with new warm clean water, no hot water and no cold water I must emphasise warm water only and this time without any detergent, we are simply rinsing everything during this second next step. Cleaning a second time with a new clean and soft brush and virtually just follow the previous step but only rinsing this time, clean all sides of the ring but try to get as close as possible to the opal and stop just on the edges of the gemstone and do not touch with the brush. Now to finish off the last step have with you some very clean tissues ready that has just been taken out of a very clean dust proof wrapper then clean the opal.
If the opal is not shining after polishing with the tissue you will still have to remove some more perspiration type or film grime that is still over the face of the opal. Then you will have to place good quality sope with warm water onto a piece of wet tissue, and clean again then follow up and polish with dry tissue. If this doesn’t remove and add a shine to the stone place some methylated spirits or body rub spirits on the tissue and clean the opal. You can also use methylated spirits if the gold band and diamonds on the ring band is still dirty after trying water and detergent and does not improve, and can not remove some built-in dirty material remaining. But only on the metal and hard gemstones use soft brush and methylated spirits not on the opal.
Keep away from the opal gemstone with all chemicals please if possible unless the opal is covered in grimy greasy stains, if the opal is very dirty you can place the ring in a small jar and completely cover the jewellery with methylated spirits, and leave it there for one minute only. Do not forget in all cleaning step sit down relax and make sure there is carpet under your feet.

As soon as you take the opal ring out of the methylated spirits in the jar container, very quickly remove all the methylated spirits off with warm water and leave the ring in a jar of water completely submerged for 5 or 10 minutes, now take the opal gemstone out clean with dry cleaning tissue, then repeat this step again but get a new tissue and do this procedure again a second time.
You should be very happy now with the clean jewellery and all the bright colours showing again, but there will be some people still not impressed with the colours of the opal and think the colours use to be more beautiful, then if this is the case you will have to have the gemstone cutter repolish your opal if it’s not over damaged.
