EDUCATION

 

Will my diamond have good sparkle?

It depends on what kind of diamond you buy. Some eye-clean diamonds will have good sparkle despite impurities while some will be cloudy with similar kind of impurities.

 

Please refer to our education guide on what kind of diamond to buy

 

What type of metal will go with my diamond?

Usually white gold is the preferred metal but if you wear other yellow gold jewellery pieces or have a yellow tinted diamond then yellow gold will be a better choice.  Both white and yellow gold is available in 14K or 18K.

 

Also, another available metal is Platinum which usually is more expensive than gold; because of its properties and rarity.

How to look after & clean your jewellery

Yes, diamonds are forever, but it is important to look after them!

 

Here are some tips to make sure your diamond stays in perfect condition:

·         Do not wear your diamond if you are doing rough work. Diamonds are extremely durable; however, a hard blow along the grain can chip them.

·         Do not keep diamonds jumbled together loosely in a box. Remember diamonds can scratch other diamonds.

·         Avoid your jewellery coming into contact with chlorine bleach (often used in housework). Although this will not harm the diamond itself, bleach can discolour or pit the mounting.

·         Diamonds can be dulled by skin oils, cosmetics, soap and cooking oils or grease. Regular cleaning once a month is the best way to keep them at their brilliant best.

 

Clean diamonds reflect light better and actually look bigger than dirty ones. So regular cleaning is the key to keeping your diamonds in sparkling condition.

 

 

JEWELLERY REPAIR

 

Does your ring need repairing?

Any item that you purchase from us comes with a lifetime guarantee for any manufacturing faults that occur within this period.

 

Please print off our jewellery repair request form and send it back to us with your ring for repair.
