Rubies are durable so they can easily hold against the normal wear and tear; however, like any gemstone, it could lose its natural shine and allure when not taken care of properly. You would want to protect your ruby jewellery from getting a cloudy appearance, so before you put it on, make sure that you already applied your skin lotions and other cosmetic sprays. Clean them periodically using warm water, mild soap, and a gentle brush. Always go to an expert jeweller from establishments like Jacobs the Jewellers in Reading for repairs or simply to make sure that your precious fiery gems are secured on their mountings.
