Here is an example: A pair of earrings in Sterling silver with topaz is cheaper than the same design in 18k white gold with diamonds. The prices vary, therefore, according to your choice of materials.

Cleaning of precious stones
Cleaning of gemstone jewelry is simple and should be undertaken regularly. A bowl with warm water and a few drops of detergent can quickly remove most of the dirt. A soft brush cleans the stone behind the socket. Then rinse with clear water and dry with a soft cloth. Remnants of makeup and skin oils can thus be removed. No detergents should be used in cleaning jewelry containing pearls and/or other organic materials. Please do not use ultrasonic cleaner or other electrical cleaning equipment! Store your jewelery separately to avoid scratching by harder stones. If possible, store each piece in a separate box.
Sunlight and heat
Some gemstones, like amethyst and smoky quartz, can change color or fade due to extreme sunlight. Therefore, make sure that the stones are protected from direct sunlight. Pearls require particularly attentive treatment: To preserve the integrity of the pearl surface, the contact with perfume or household chemicals should be avoided.
Always put your perfume on first, only then your jewelry. Perfume diminishes the luster of the surface and causes discoloration.
Chlorine, bleach, alcohol, turpentine, acetone and ammonia can damage your jewelry and should not be brought into contact with it. Especially pearls which are organic in origin and must never come into contact with aggressive chemicals.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, polishes or toothpaste to clean your jewelry. Take care of your jewelry regularly, delicately cleaning it. As with most precious materials, stones and metals react sensitively to any kind of physical exertion.
Here are a few simple rules
You should never wear rings and bracelets while performing house or yard work. Do not shower or bath while wearing gemstone jewelry and pearl necklaces. Protect your jewelry, especially pearls, against lotions, hair spray and aggressive chemicals. Jewelry that is worn regularly cannot look the same as newly acquired. But it remains sharp and colorful during lifetime, if treated with care.
