Stronger gemstones such as Diamonds, Sapphires and Rubies are durable and can be worn and cared for with ease. Although, softer gemstones such as Morganite, Emerald and Aquamarine require a little more care – they can be worn and enjoyed daily, with a little extra attention.
Diamond is the hardest mineral we know of, but just like your lab created diamond/s, and semi precious gemstones, they are not indestructible. They can be scratched, chipped or split by sharp edges. No one wants that, so take care when wearing and storing your diamond jewellery.
The lustre and patina of gold is gorgeous. It does not tarnish or fade over time. In its pure form however it is very soft and care should always be taken not to scratch or bash it.
We recommend that you wear rings of a similar carat (if it is gold) together, e.g. your wedding and engagement ring, as the higher the carat of gold you wear, the softer the metal and one may wear down the other over time.
Gold should be cleaned regularly in order to maintain its beauty. A soft, lint free cloth is a very effective way to keep gold jewellery looking beautiful. Gold does not like chlorine or bleach so be aware of this when in a swimming pool or hot tub.
Platinum develops a natural patina that many people prefer over the “just polished” look. When this happens, you can send it to us or take it to your local jeweller to have it re-polished to restore the high shine.
