Proper Care of Fine Jewelry

It is important to have your jewelry cleaned and inspected regularly by our professional jewelers. The prongs that secure your gemstones must withstand the abuse of day to day living. Those prongs can become weak and damaged over the course of time. A regular inspection may prevent the loss of your gemstones, as signs of compromise may be detected before the actual loss occurs. Cleaning and inspection is a service we provide free of charge.

Even with regular inspection and cleaning, jewelry still can be damaged or gemstones lost. Therefore, it is vital that you have insurance on your heirlooms so that you can wear and enjoy them without fear of loss. Most insurance companies require an appraisal that documents details regarding the piece to be insured. We provide these appraisals upon request at no charge for items purchased from us, and provide appraisal services on other jewelry at an hourly rate.

Another crucial part of protecting your valuable investment is by avoiding problems that arise from improper cleaning, storage, and exposure to harmful chemicals.
