- 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 word diamond originates from Greek and stands for unbreakable. Renown for their strength and scratch-resistant body, diamonds are formed in the Earth’s mantle at elevated temperatures and high pressure. The 4C scale used to determine their quality considers cut, color, clarity and carat weight (with one carat corresponding to 0.20 grams).
