Jewelry with Rhinestone Crystals
- If the crystals are set in open-back mounting without foiling, you can immerse them in water and gently clean them with a toothbrush and light detergent mix.
- A lot of crystal jewelry is foiled and set in a closed-back mounting: they can’t be immersed in water, ever. Just wipe with a soft cloth after each wearing to remove make-up, oils, or perfume.
