- Product Care
Normal everyday use and external agents such as atmospheric agents, cosmetic products, moisture and transpiration coming into contact with jewels may lead to reducing the lustre of gemstones and diamonds, as well as of gold surfaces.
The cleaning process may be more risky for jewellery set with gemstones or diamonds; thus, it is advisable to turn to professional cleaning.
Especially when dealing with gemstones of an organic nature (like coral or jet) or with a porous structure (like turquoise, opal and chalcedony), the general rule is to avoid contact with external agents, such as fragrances, creams, sudden changes in temperature, moisture, chlorine, smoke, etc., that may cause irreversible damage.
The term garnet refers to a family of minerals that share the same crystal system and part of their chemical formula. Colours may include light red, reddish brown, reddish purple as well as reddish orange, orange and green. The rhodolite variety of garnet is usually immediately recognisable for its shiny surface and reddish purple body.
