Larimar CareCare & Cleaning Of Larimar
Larimar should not be exposed to any chemicals, including hand soap, hair spray, perfumes and hand cream. To keep your Larimar stones as beautiful as possible, they should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing that you take off in the evening.
To minimize contact with lotions, hair sprays, hair gels, etc., put your silver jewelry on last. This will minimize dullness and tarnishing, and help to keep your sterling silver shiny. The easiest way to remember, “last on – first off.”
Avoid swimming pools and hot tubs while wearing your jewelry, as chlorine can compromise the surface of the stone and potentially cause discoloration to the sterling silver setting.
Do not use ultrasonic cleaners and steam baths designed for jewelry. They are not safe for use on Larimar and may damage the stone.
