Treat opal inlay jewelry as you would a fine strand of pearls. Exposure to cosmetics, chemicals, and sudden changes in temperature could damage your opal inlay jewelry.
Do not place in ultrasonic cleaners or immerse in water. A light buffing with a soft, dry cloth is all that is required to maintain the beauty and luster of your opal jewelry.
Protect from sharp or forceful impact. Do not wear while gardening or while working strenuously with one's hands. On Mohs Scale (the gemstone industry scale of hardness), opal measures around 6, diamonds measure between 9 and 10, and pearls measure between 4 and 5.
The wearability of opal inlay jewelry is similar to prong-set opal jewelry. With care, your opal jewelry can be treasured for a lifetime!
