Inlaid jewelry can be stunning and receive a lot of compliments from on lookers.
To keep your inlaid jewelry in its best condition, a few helpful tips are recommended. First, no harsh chemicals or cleaning agents. Do not soak your inlaid jewelry (such as opal inlay, turquoise or and other cut stone inlay) in cleaners or soap and water for extended periods of time. Inlay is usually glued in place with an epoxy which can react and loosen the inlay. Inlaid jewelry usually contains softer stones such as opal or turquoise which can scratch and abrade faster than the gold surrounding the stones. Remove your inlaid jewelry when doing household chores or washing the car for example. These few tips can mean many years of enjoyment of your inlaid jewelry item.
