Zirconia's, lab-created stones, (UV) resin, ceramics and glass can safely be polished, for some gems it is advisable not to do this. This has to do with the hardness of a stone. Polishing balls can also get trapped in small openings such as beads syringe etc, if possible, you can use a pipe cleaner or rope to temporarily seal a hole so that the balls of the same diameter can not close the hole or get stuck. If it does happen, put the jewelery in the freezer for a while so that the metal can shrink and you can probably remove the balls.
