 Jewelry Care

  • Even though a diamond is the hardest substance known, that doesn't mean it cannot be chipped. Certain diamond cuts are more prone to chipping than others, such as princess cut or marquise diamonds can be chipped by taking a heavy blow at the most vulnerable part, at the corner, or the tip of the diamond. In that case the diamond would have to be removed & recut, resulting  in a loss of weight & value. 

  • It is important to remove jewelry when doing manual work. Not only your diamonds would be protected, but the metal of which the jewelry is made of (gold or platinum) would be preserved too.

  • Try not to bathe or shower with your jewelry, even though there is no harm to your diamonds, however hard water & soap would deposit a film underneath your diamonds, giving them a dull look. 

  • Opals & turquoise are delicate stones. They can absorb oils & alcohols. Remove your jewelry when using skin lotion or perfumes. These stones are porous & can absorb chemicals & leave spots on them, & there isn't a solution to clean them again. Use same caution with pearls.

  • Check your jewelry at least twice a year in order to avoid future loss of stones. Gold is a soft metal, prongs do wear off after sometime. Proper care, checking & cleaning would avoid replacing your stones in the future.

  • If your rings need to be sized, make sure that they are never stretched. At Harry's jewelry gold or platinum is always added to rings in order to keep the thickness & the integrity of the ring intact.
