Jewelry Maintenance


Whether it’s your wedding ring or a necklace that’s languished in your jewelry box for years, over time all precious metals and gemstones lose their sparkle.

Dirt, grease from your skin and household dust can clog fittings.



One of the most overlooked items that does require more then just an annual sparkle is your wedding ring. Think about it. This is one piece that is with you virtually all of the time, and partakes in almost every activity that you do. Your ring has been subjected to such a wide variety of places and products. There is a pretty good chance that it has also been exposed to not only a batch or two of Christmas cookies, but garden dirt, hand soap, lotion, every cleaning chemical in your home and perhaps even last night’s hands-on glitter glue craft project.



In general, we recommend a professional cleaning of your ring every six months. However, don’t let that stop you from bringing it in more often! The before and after sparkle difference will leave you impressed enough to consider making it a routine habit.



A consistent cleaning schedule of your jewel is important for several reasons. Every time it’s at our store, our goldsmiths thoroughly inspect the ring for loose diamonds, worn prongs, and other signs of needed repair or maintenance. At this stage, they are often able to provide preventative suggestions for repairs for your jewelry to help protect diamonds and gems from loss. A little bit of maintenance here and there will help extend the life of your ring for years to come.
