- 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.
Originally discovered in ancient Egyptian tombstones, turquoise jewelry was worn on the neck and hands during the Persian Empire. Turquoise owes its special coloration to the presence of copper and may vary from deep blue to pale green.
