No. The GemSpa® is proven safe for over 90% of all fine jewelry.  There are a few items like pearls, opals and emeralds that are heat sensitive and should be washed by hand.  The majority of fine jewelry is professionally cleaned using steam, hot water and a cleaning solvent.  (See Professional Cleaning Video Above) The dishwasher uses the same elements, only at a lower water pressure and runs for a longer period of time, giving you the same professional results at home.
