If you see value in your jewelry, then it is valuable enough for you to take good care of it. Our master jewelers have a jewelry care plan that can change the way you store and clean your jewelry.
When buying jewelry, you select it because of its beauty. Whether it is the gleam of the metal or the sparklingly diamond, something appealed your impeccable taste. The main causes of the wear and tear that fades the beauty of jewelry (scratches, gouges and dulled gems) occurs from the storage of your jewelry. Accidents do happen, but you can take some steps to avoid much of the damage your jewelry will receive.
Many times, taking the time to be careful is the greatest care most jewelry needs. Some jewelry, though, will require special care due to fragile stones and soft materials.
Another factor to keep in mind is the Mohs scale of hardness for gemstones. A higher rank stone is harder and can scratch another stone. However, even highly ranked stones with distinct cleavage is at risk of fracturing. Therefore, hardness is not the same as toughness. A tough gem might not be at risk of breaking or shattering, but can scratch easily. Remembering about the hardness is the first step in preserving your jewelry.
Metals are similar to the previous discussion on stones. The purer the silver or gold, the more easily it can be damaged. Remember your combination of Metals have similar characteristic. The purer the silver and gold, the more easily it can be damaged. Also, you must consider the combination of metal in settings with gem or gems. What may be perfectly good to clean a metal, such as sterling silver, may not be the best for the gems. You have to consider the jewelry as a whole, not as simply metal or gems.
These point are tied in with the third point: the care you take with your jewelry to protect it from loss, both when you are wearing it and when you put it away for safekeeping. All the care in cleaning and storing will not matter if you lose the jewelry. The care you should take in this sense involves the precautions you would take to make sure you do not lose something you like and enjoy. That common sense, and it is common sense whether or not the jewelry is insured, and whether or not it is valuable. The precautions you should take with any jewelry that you like and that means anything to you, in fact, are simple common sense.
