Jewellery Care

To ensure that we take care of our customers and their interests long after the purchase has been made, we have listed down some useful facts about diamond and gold jewellery. A diamond’s worth is judged by taking four factors into consideration: Clarity, Colour, Carat and Cut, collectively known as the 4Cs of a diamond.

Tips To Take Care of Your Jewellery

  • Clean your jewellery periodically using a warm mild detergent solution and a soft brush, and gently dry with a soft cloth.
  • You can also use toothpaste to clean jewellery.
  • Store each piece individually in a soft cloth or a clean jewellery box to avoid damage.
  • During travel, ensure that your jewellery is well packed; use a jewellery box or suitable packing material.
  • Keep away from heat, chemical areas etc.
  • Get your jewellery checked for stone securing aspects by authorised personnel at least once a year.
  • Avoid sizing of studded finger rings as doing so can weaken their stone securing.
  • Do not spray perfume or deodorant on your jewellery.
  • Do not wear your pieces while applying make-up.
  • Do not rub or hit on hard surfaces.
  • Do not use hot or corrosive liquids to clean.

Gold Jewellery

Some facts about gold:
  • Pure gold is of 1000 Fineness or 24kt purity.
  • Pure gold is very soft and needs hardness for setting and converting it into jewellery. This is achieved by alloying it with other metals.
  • Usually 22kt gold is used to make gold jewellery and 18kt gold is used for diamond-studded jewellery.
  • Gold can be alloyed with various metals to give it colours such as pink, brown and white.
Tarnishing
  • Low purity gold and silver jewellery tends to lose its lustre and becomes tarnished with the passage of time.
  • This is due to the process of oxidation, which causes the surface of these metals to become tarnished.
  • To restore its original colour and beauty, jewellery needs to be cleaned and polished regularly.
