PRECIOUS STONES

 

DIAMONDS

About Diamonds:  A diamond means “unbreakable”, and a diamond's hardness and high dispersion of light give each diamond its characteristic “fire.”  Diamonds are such a highly traded commodity that a system was created for grading and certifying them based on the four C's, which are Carat, Cut, Color, and Clarity.

Cleaning Diamonds:  Spray Razzle Dazzle® liberally on to the surface of each diamond.  Next, use the Razzle Dazzle® Brush to clean around and underneath each diamond.  Clean the setting, brushing inside the grooves and crevices.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  Enjoy!

EMERALDS

About Emeralds:  Emeralds, like all colored gemstones, are graded using four basic parameters, the four C's of Connoisseurship which are Color, Cut, Clarity and Crystal.  Color is divided into three components: Hue, Saturation and Tone.  The last C, Crystal, is simply used as a synonym that begins with C for Transparency. Emeralds tend to have many inclusions or fissures.  Most emeralds are oiled with cedar oil or synthetic oils to enhance their color.

Cleaning Emeralds:  Spray Razzle Dazzle® liberally on to the surface of each emerald.  Next, use the Razzle Dazzle® Brush to clean around and underneath each emerald.  Clean the setting, brushing inside the grooves and crevices.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  Note: Razzle Dazzle® is safe to use on oiled treated Emeralds.  Enjoy!

SEMI-PRECIOUS POROUS STONES

 

PEARLS

About Pearls:  Valuable Pearls occur in the wild, but they are very rare.  Cultured or farmed Pearls from pearl oysters make up the majority of those that are currently sold.  A cultured pearl is one that has been formed with human intervention on a pearl farm.  An irritating microscopic object is inserted and becomes trapped within the mollusk's mantle folds.  The mantle of the mollusk then deposits layers of ‘nacre’ around the inserted bead.  The unique luster of Pearls depends upon the reflection, refraction, and diffraction of light from the translucent layers.  The thinner and more numerous the layers in the Pearl, the finer the luster.  The iridescence that Pearls display is caused by the overlapping of successive layers, which breaks up light falling on the surface.  In addition, Pearls (especially cultured freshwater pearls) can be dyed yellow, green, blue, brown, pink, purple, or black.

Cleaning Pearls:  Spray Razzle Dazzle® onto the pearl, and gently rub the surface with your fingers.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton cloth or cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  This simple process will remove any build up of hairspray, perfume and makeup, which dull the pearl.  When cleaning a strand of pearls follow the same instructions and lay flat to dry.  Laying flat to dry will help tighten the silk cord they are strung on, rather than hanging to dry, which may stretch the silk cord. Enjoy!

Special Note:  Do not soak pearls as they are porous stones.  If left to soak, porous stones will absorb liquid, which can ultimately dull or damage them.

OPALS

About Opals:  Opals are a mineraloid gel which is deposited at a relatively low temperature and may occur in the fissures of almost any kind of rock.  Opals can display every color in the visible spectrum.  It is reported in the legends of the aborinigies that the creator came down to Earth on a rainbow, in order to bring the message of peace to all the humans.  And at the very spot, where his foot touched the ground, the stones became alive and started sparkling in all the colors of the rainbow.  That was the birth of the Opals.  Australia produces 97% of the world’s opals.  Mexico produces what are known as fire opals.

Cleaning Opals:  Spray Razzle Dazzle® onto the opal, and gently rub the surface with your fingers.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton cloth or cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  This simple process will remove any build up of hairspray, perfume and makeup, which dull the opal.  Enjoy!

Special Note:  Do not soak opals as they are porous stones.  If left to soak, porous stones will absorb liquid, which can ultimately dull or damage them.

CORAL

About Coral:  Coral's many colors give it appeal for jewelry – white, pink, red, black, and more.  Intensely red coral is prized as a gemstone.  Red coral are sometimes called fire coral, but they are not the same as fire coral.  Fire coral are marine organisms that look like real coral, but are not real coral.  Red coral is very rare because of overharvesting, due to the great demand for perfect specimens.

Cleaning Coral:  Spray Razzle Dazzle® onto the coral, and gently rub the surface with your fingers.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton cloth or cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  This simple process will remove any build up of hairspray, perfume and makeup, which dull the coral.  Enjoy!

PRECIOUS METALS

 

GOLD & WHITE GOLD

About Gold:  Gold jewelry is universally stamped and identified with a number followed by a “k” which stands for karat.  9k, 10k, 12k, 14k, 18k, and 22k gold are commonly used in jewelry.  The higher the number, the higher the actual gold content.  24k is pure gold, and like fine silver, is quite soft.  Many people consider 14k gold to be the lowest gold content that should be used in fine gold jewelry.  Higher karat gold, such as 18k and 22k, tend to have a richer gold color than lower karat alloys.  They are also more expensive due to the higher actual gold content. Gold is available in several different colors.  The most popular is yellow gold, followed by white gold and rose gold, though other gold colors are available such as bronze gold, red gold and lime gold.  As the color difference is due to the metal components in the alloy mix, the color of yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and lime gold will not chip, fade or wear off with age.

Cleaning Gold:  To clean gold, spray Razzle Dazzle® liberally on to the surface.  Next, use the Razzle Dazzle® Brush to clean inside the grooves and crevices.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  The more you buff with a cotton towel, the more the luster will be revealed.  Note:  Razzle Dazzle® is safe to use on all jewelry that has black etching such as class rings.  Razzle Dazzle® will not remove this etching.  Enjoy!

Surface Scratches:  To remove surface scratches from gold jewelry, especially weddings rings and wedding bands, we recommend using the Razzle Dazzle® Miracle Cloth first.  Verify that your jewelry has been stamped or has the gold marking.  Next, buff using the Miracle Cloth, then buff with a cotton towel (we recommend Viva or Bounty).  Finally, spray Razzle Dazzle® liberally on to the surface, and brush inside all the grooves and crevices.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).

Silver and Sterling Silver

About Silver and Sterling Silver:  Sterling Silver is a white-grey colored softer metal which is less expensive than gold, platinum and titanium.  It is popular for making jewelry, consisting of 92.5% pure silver alloyed with 7.5% other metals.  Sterling Silver is universally recognized by a marking or a stamp of 925.  Silver is more prone to oxidation, sometimes causing the silver to turn black.  Silver jewelry can easily be made to look like new again.

Cleaning Silver:  First, if the item you are cleaning is heavily tarnished or oxidized we recommend using the Razzle Dazzle®  Miracle Cloth first.  Buff with the Miracle Cloth until the tarnish has disappeared.  The Miracle Cloth will become black in color.  Note that the cloth continues to work even though it is black and can be used over and over again.  Next, buff with a cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  Then spray Razzle Dazzle®  liberally on to the surface to remove any residue.  Brush, rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton paper towel.

Important Note:  If the item you are cleaning is not severely tarnished, spray Razzle Dazzle® liberally on to the surface.  Next use a brush, we recommend our 4” brush sold separately, also included in our jewelry cleaning bath.  This brush is small and effective for cleaning around and underneath stones, and inside the grooves and crevices of the jewelry.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton cloth or paper towel.  The more you buff with a cotton towel, the more the luster you will have.

Special Note:  Of special note to Silver, Razzle Dazzle®  hinders the oxidation process.  Razzle Dazzle® is safe to use on all jewelry that has black etching such as class rings.  Razzle Dazzle® will not remove this etching.

Important Note:  Do not use the Razzle Dazzle® Miracle Cloth on plated jewelry.  The Miracle Cloth will remove the plating to reveal the base metal underneath.

GOLD FILLED & VERMEIL

About Gold Filled & Vermail:  These two metals are not primarily Gold, but incorporate some Gold and look like Gold.  Gold Filled is created by bonding a thin layer of Gold to a Brass core.  Vermeil is Gold Plated Sterling Silver.  There are significant differences between the two.  Gold Filled metal is primarily Brass; the layer of Gold must equal 1/20th of the total weight of the metal.  Gold Plated metal, such as Vermeil, on the other hand, can be a microscopic layer of actual Gold, 24K over the Silver.

Cleaning Gold Filled & Vermeil:  Spray Razzle Dazzle®  liberally onto the surface of the jewelry.  Next, use the Razzle Dazzle®  brush to clean around and underneath the stones (this is where the light is refracted from).  Be sure to get inside all the grooves and crevices.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  

Special Note:  Do not use the Razzle Dazzle®  Miracle Cloth on Gold Filled jewelry or Vermeil.  The Miracle Cloth may remove the thin layer of Gold bonded to the Brass or Silver underneath and reveal the metal under the plating.

WATCHES

Cleaning Watches:  First, read the markings on the back of the watch to ensure your watch is water resistant.  If so, lay your watch flat on a paper towel.  Liberally spray Razzle Dazzle® on to the front and back side of the watch.  In many cases, you will instantly see dirt and grime drip from the watch.  Use the Razzle Dazzle® Brush to clean in between the links and grooves.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  This process may need to be repeated two or three times until all dirt is cleaned away.  We recommend cleaning watches once a month to maintain a brilliant shine.

Special Note:  If watches are not marked water resistant, simply cover the face of the watch with a paper towel and spray the right and left side of the watch band.  Use the Razzle Dazzle® Brush to clean in between the links and grooves.  Rinse with water and buff dry with a cotton paper towel (we recommend Bounty or Viva).  Enjoy! 

Important Note:  Razzle Dazzle® is water based not recommended for use on leather.

HOME & ELECTRONICS

 

EYEGLASSES   DESIGNER SUNGLASSES   RACING HELMETS   SWIMMING GOGGLES   SKI & SCUBA MASKS

Cleaning Eyewear:  Spray Razzle Dazzle® on the front and back side of the lens.  Buff both sides dry with a cotton paper towel (we recommend using Bounty or Viva).  This will help prevent fog and fingerprints and provide you with clear and clean lenses for high definition.  Depending on how oily your skin is (see note below), repeat the process as needed.

A Little Secret:  When buffing your glasses dry, we recommend buffing in one direction, toward your noise piece, as we all have an oily t-zone.  This will help prevent the oil that often gets trapped inside the frames from smearing back across the lens.  If your glasses have any green corrosion along the frame you can also pop the lenses out and spray Razzle Dazzle® liberally inside the frames and wipe away the corrosion.  

Special Note:  If your eyeglasses have multiple coatings do not use Razzle Dazzle® as Razzle Dazzle® will apply another coating.

5 MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE WHEN CLEANING THEIR JEWELRY

These Common Cleaning Agents Can Devalue Your Jewelry:

  • Ammonia:  Many people have been told that ammonia is a good agent for cleaning jewelry.  However, over time, ammonia will actually weaken metal.  You can see this result demonstrated in antique rings.  The prongs (used in the mounting of the gemstones) will become weak and often chip after years of exposure to ammonia, whereas the band will become pitted, dull, and discolored.  In addition, colored gemstones, especially those treated with oils, will lose their brilliance, becoming dull and lifeless. In addition, ammonia is environmentally hazardous. It has a pungent order and is both caustic and hazardous, causing damage to your eyes, skin, and the tissue beneath your skin.  Furthermore, inhaling ammonia can damage your respiratory track. 
  • Toothpaste:  Perhaps you have heard that toothpaste is an easy at-home solution for cleaning rare metals and precious stones.  However, toothpaste unfortunately contains many abrasives and bleaches.  The abrasives scratch gold, silver, platinum, and most other metals, while disfiguring the surface of semi-precious stones.  As a result, most gemstones will start to look dull and lifeless after exposing them to toothpaste.  And pearls will not only begin to lose their natural luster, but the the layers of nacre that took years to build up will also start to wear away.
  • Household Cleaners:  Sometimes, people will simply use what they have available.  Unfortunately, many household cleaners contain bleach and chlorine which can damage and discolor the mountings of your jewels.  These chemicals may slowly erode metal finishes and platings while degrading gemstone treatments and polishes.  In fact, chlorine can even permanently damage or discolor your jewelry, especially at higher temperatures.  This is why it's important to remove your diamonds and other jewelry before entering a hot tub or chlorinated pool.
  • Soap:  Some people think soap will work on almost anything.  Yet, you have probably seen the commercials about the soap residue that is left on your body. And, notice the line soap leaves on your shower doors, sinks, and tubs after you wash.  This same residue will be left on jewelry cleaned with soap as well.  Using soap as a cleaning agent will cause a formation of film to accumulate on your jewelry, making it appear dull, dingy, and lifeless.  
  • Cleaning Your Watch:  Most people seldom think about cleaning their watch.  However, no other piece of jewelry accumulates more dirt, oil, and perspiration than than the timepiece wrapped around your wrist.  Indeed, your watch is a virtual breeding ground for germs.  Thus, your watch should be cleaned at least once a month with care.  Be sure to clean in between the links and crevices.  Also, replace broken or scratched crystals immediately. Even a hairline crack can let dust and moisture into the device, affecting its accuracy.  Since watches are sealed using a rubber “O” ring, many cleaners will deteriorate or dry out the “O” ring causing it to crack and break.  This makes it especially important to only use a cleaning agent that is designed for watches. 

Razzle Dazzle® is a comprehensive jewelry cleanser designed to enhance and protect your precious jewels and metals for many years to come.  We believe products should be safe for you and your family, while ensuring your jewelry lasts and shines.  We guarantee it!

USING THE RAZZLE DAZZLE® MIRACLE CLOTH

The Miracle Cloth is a soft pre-moistened cloth made with coconut oil that cleans, waxes, polishes and protects surfaces.  

It can be used on Sterling Silver, Gold, Brass, Copper, Bronze, Nickel, Chrome, Aluminum, Pewter, Stainless Steel, Porcelain, Furniture, Ceramic Tile, Watches, Jewelry, Coins, Sterling flatware, Tea sets, Instruments, Automobile bumpers and trim, Motorcycles, Boats, Snowmobiles, Household Appliances, and Tools.

Cleaning:  Your Razzle Dazzle® Miracle Cloth is ready for immediate use and requires no wetting.  Always use on dry surfaces.  Cleans down to the shine by removing tarnish, surface scratches, heel and scuff marks from tile, water and heat rings from furniture, lime and rust from porcelain, starch build-up form iron bottoms, tools and much more.

  • Rub tarnished objects gently, for scratches and severely tarnished jobs rub vigorously.
  • Buff surface clean with a soft cotton cloth. (Do not try to wash clean, surface must be buffed clean.)
  • To maintain maximum moistness return Razzle Dazzle® Miracle Cloth to pouch and seal to prevent drying.

Important Notes:  Not recommended for use on plated surfaces, such as silver plating or gold plating.  If used too harshly the Miracle Cloth will remove plating and or coating. As an example, many Platinum rings have a Rhodium finish to make them appear more lustrous.  The Miracle Cloth, if used, will remove this Rhodium finish.

  • Not intended for brushed metals and other metals intended to look dull.
  • The formation of tarnish or rust on metals after treated with your Miracle Cloth is considerably retarded.
  • Use Razzle Dazzle® after cleaning with your Miracle Cloth.  This will help to further retard tarnishing.

Helpful Hints:  When using on an old or unknown surface, test your Miracle Cloth in an inconspicuous place first.

For Polishing Metals:  Rub a small section of the article to be cleaned, then buff with a dry cotton cloth.  Repeat until entire article is polished.  Removes rust and corrosion.

For Automobiles, Motorcycles and Boats:  Do not polish in hot sun.  First make sure that surface dirt has been removed and surface is dry.  Use a part of the cloth that has not been darkened by metals.  Polish a section at a time with your Miracle Cloth and buff with a clean, soft cotton cloth.  Do not use on painted surfaces as this will remove the shine or varnish used on top of the paint.

DO NOT WASH CLOTH.  DISCOLORATION OF CLOTH DOES NOT IN ANY WAY AFFECT THE EFFICIENCY.  
THE DARKER IT BECOMES, THE HARDER IT WORKS!
