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.
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.
- 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.
