Most gold jewelry in America has either gold, rubies , sapphires, and some other stones like amethyst and citrine. If you have emerald , opal , or quartz you have to take special precaution. But how to clean gold jewelry , you are going think i'm crazy. Take household cleaner and toothbrush.

And when you're finished just rinse it off , take a paper towel and dry it.
