FAQs about Garnet Jewelry
Is Garnet Jewelry easy to clean?
Compared to a lot of other jewelry stones, garnets are fairly durable and easy to care for. That said, you can damage them if you handle them incorrectly. As long as you are gentle and use suitable cleaning materials, you should be able to keep your garnet rings, earrings, and necklaces sparkling for years to come.
Here are a few tips for how to clean garnet jewelry:
• Polish the stone lightly before you wash it.
• Clean the jewelry in warm, soapy water- no bleach or salt required!
• Avoid hard-bristled brushes and stick to a soft brush to remove any dirt.
• Only scrub parts of the setting that do not touch the stone.
What styles are best to pair with Garnet Jewelry?
Garnets make some of the best jewelry- and the most versatile! These unique stones come in many shades and lend themselves to a variety of styles. They tend to be set in silver or white gold, so bear that in mind before you buy jewelry of this kind.
The most popular deep reds and burgundy garnets are excellent for handcrafted bohemian jewelry styles. They can also make an excellent present for someone who likes classic, beautiful raised stone rings.
How are garnets different from rubies?
At first glance, rubies and garnets are similar in appearance, but there are some key differences. Appearance-wise, the main difference is the depth of color. Rubies tend to be a darker red with almost blue-ish undertones. Garnets, on the other hand, are lighter with a more orange hue.
Another notable difference is the price. Rubies are more difficult to source than garnets and cost much more. They are usually heat-treated and are considered one of the most durable stones of all. Garnets are also strong, but not as tough as rubies. Overall, Ruby jewelry is more valuable, but Garnet is the more affordable and ethical choice.

How can I remove scratches from a Garnet jewelry set?
Deep polishing is the best way to remove scratches from gemstones, including garnets. The exact materials and techniques depend on the age and style of your stone, so it is best to ask for a professional opinion.
Someone with expertise in handling garnets can buff and polish the stone using the idea of pressure and materials for optimal results. If you try to do it yourself, you run the risk of causing further damage to the stone.
