- 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.
Lapis is an antique deep blue stone with a matte finish whose name derives from both the Persian word to define the sky-blue colour and the place in which it was first dug up. With its complex composition of diverse minerals it may often present inclusions of pyrite that may certify its genuine nature.
