    Caring For Your Sapphire, Ruby, and Diamond Jewellery

    These fabulous stones are very hard and durable. So, to make sure your jewellery and stones are always in the best condition, it is important to know exactly how they should be cleaned and stored.

    Sapphires rubies and diamonds are not prone to chipping, cracking or breaking, so please take care that they do not scratch softer gemstones in your jewellery box.

    The best way to clean your ruby, diamond, and sapphire jewellery is with warm soapy water and a soft brush, avoiding soaking the stone. Always avoid harsh detergents, and never clean your jewellery with solvents such as alcohol.

    Protect your ring with the following steps:

    • Store it well  When you’re not wearing it, keep your ring in a safe place, such as its own section in a jewellery box.
    • Take it off – Remove rings before getting your hands dirty, such as when cooking, gardening or washing dishes.
    • Maintain it  Take it to your jeweller for maintenance every two or three years or so, or sooner if you notice any signs of the stone being loose.
    • Avoid harsh chemicals  Whilst sapphires, rubies and diamonds are resilient against most liquids, even the hardest gemstone could have inclusions, cracks or quirks not visible to the naked eye. These features might, in turn, make them more susceptible to damage from harmful substances. To keep your ring gleaming, avoid any contact with acids, harsh chemicals, and solutions.
    • Keep it out of the heat – Sapphires diamonds and rubies stand up well to heat and light, but prolonged exposure can still damage both the stone and your ring band. Avoid setting your ring down where it may come into contact with high heat or steam.
    • Apply your makeup first – If you use fragrances, skin care and hair care products, apply them and wash your hands before putting on any fine jewellery. Some of these products contain alcohol and other ingredients which will not only dirty your stones, but also diminish its long-term brilliance.

    Brilliant Cut

    Brilliant Cut diamonds come in several guises, firstly and most importantly, round brilliant, then the others – oval brilliant, pear brilliant, marquise or boat brilliant, and heart brilliant, all have 57 or 58 facets.

    Diamonds have been around forever – literally! When you ask how old is this diamond? Remember most diamonds were created by nature at the birth of the Earth billions of years ago and other still older diamond came to earth via meteorites from distant stars. They were first found in India about 5000 years ago, they just like any stone and are known as rough diamonds. Largely diamonds only came from India until the 18th century.  Here at The Chelsea Bijouterie, we like to think we can answer pretty much any question about the diamonds used in our vintage Jewellery.
