I was wondering if anyone can tell me what's the best way to clean a blue topaz ring set in a 14 K white gold setting?
Thanks!

Protect topaz from scratches and sharp blows. Also avoid large temperature changes. Clear topaz is commonly irradiated and heat treated to become other colors such as blue. Yellow and brown topaz is often heat treated to become pink topaz. Natural pink topaz is rare
Topaz is found in Africa, Australia, Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Russia, and USA. Clean with warm sudsy water and rinse well, blow dry.

Just to add.......never put your blue topaz ring in an ultrasonic cleaner or wear in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. The color can fade.
