If there is no foil at the back, and the stone is fitted securely, immerse a small part of the piece in a solution of warm water, few drops of ammonia, and few drops of soap.

Take the piece out and softly scrub with a soft tooth brush and rinse in warm water.

Be careful of scratching; store them properly so that the pieces do not rub against each other.

Moisture is the biggest enemy of jewelries, be careful while wearing them in moist places and dry them properly after wash.

It is better to avoid them wearing while you are doing household jobs.

Be careful of the material of your jewelry container. Some metal contains sulphur which is harmful for gold and silver.
