How to Care for and Clean Modern Metals

TUNGSTEN AND CERAMIC

  • Clean with hot water and soap. A steam cleaner may also be used.
  • Do not use ultrasonic cleaning on these materials.
  • Do not use an ionic cleaner.
  • On tungsten, do not use any chemicals other than alcohol.
  • Do not intentionally drop either material on a hard surface, or bring a hammer force to it.
  • Re-polishing gold and silver inlaid portions of the band will not affect polishing the tungsten, or ceramic portion of the band.

STAINLESS STEEL AND TITANIUM JEWELRY

  • Clean with hot water and soap. A steam cleaner can be used.
  • The ultrasonic cleaner can be used on stainless steel jewelry without gemstones.
  • We do not recommend placing gemstones set in stainless steel in the ultrasonic cleaner. Hand cleaning with hot water, soap, or alcohol, as well as steam cleaning is the preferred method.
  • Polishing of stainless steel can be accomplished with traditional methods.
