JEWELRY CLEANING BY EXPERT JEWELERS
If your jewelry seems to be losing its sparkle it is probably time to bring your Jewelry to The Precious Gem for an expert cleaning. Our goal is to keep your jewelry, your rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendants looking as bright and beautiful as they did when got them.
The Precious Gem can handle all your jewelry cleaning needs to include diamonds, colored gem stones and precious metals. Although it is not one of the traditional 4 Cs (cut, carat, color and clarity), in grading diamonds, the fifth “C” could be cleanliness. A clean diamond is always more brilliant and fiery. Over time in the normal course of wearing a diamond it will be exposed to essentially invisible contaminants that collect on the stone and dull its luster. So help your jewelry looks its best. Bring your diamonds and other jewelry to us for cleaning and you will be amazed at how much beauty has been restored.
Between cleanings there are a number of things that The Precious Gem recommends that you do to keep your jewelry looking great. Begin by storing your jewelry when you are not wearing it in its original packaging or in a well-designed jewelry box. Never wear your jewelry when using household cleansers which can damage or discolor stones and their mountings. For the same reason, be careful when using perfume, cosmetics or hairspray which also contains elements that may tarnish or discolor jewelry. Bangles, earrings (particularly those manufactured from hollow tubing) and chains should be worn with care in order to avoid surface damage. Remove them before going to bed. Check for signs of wear and tear regularly, especially on catches, clasps and joints. Pay particular attention to stone settings which can become loose over time, especially if they have been hit against a hard surface or snagged on clothing.
