For rings purchased through one of our retail partners, please contact them directly.
Your ring can easily get dirty through everyday wear and exposure to products like shampoo, sunscreen, and soap residue. Avoid contact with harsh household chemicals like hairspray and chlorine, these are not a diamond’s friend. Regular cleanings with a mild liquid soap and warm water do the trick. A toothbrush can also be used. We do not recommend ultrasonic cleaners or jewelry cleaning solutions. For more information on cleaning please visit our blog post here.
Even the most secure settings can loosen over time, especially if extensively worm. That is why we recommend an annual check up done by a jewelry professional. This checkup can avoid costly damage or loss. We offer this free of charge. When in doubt ask an expert. Diamonds are indeed the hardest stone, and hardy during daytime wear but can easily scratch other jewelry. Store diamonds alone in a soft pouch in your jewelry box.
Putting an insurance policy on your new ring might sound unromantic but having peace of mind is priceless. All insurance companies are different, but often simple solutions are available by extending renters or home owner insurance policies. For other insurance questions feel free to inquire.
In order to hold comprehensive insurance your piece must be appraised by a certified gemologist. There are various trusted appraisal associations in the US, and we offer recommendations for service here in San Francisco. Ensure open communication with your appraiser to address your needs, whether it be for insurance, resale, or peace of mind. A general rule of thumb is to have your appraisal updated every 2 to 3 years, but this can be discussed with your gemologist. For additional questions please contact us.
