Diamonds are one of the hardest natural substances found on earth. To care for diamonds, use warm water, detergent-free soap and a soft-bristled brush, rinsing the diamond and setting afterward to ensure there is no residue.
Do not use steam or ultrasonic cleaners, as this can cause damage. Store your diamond jewelry in a safe, dry place when not worn.
Solid gold is a precious metal that will not tarnish or fade with time.
Rolled Gold and Gold Filled jewelry are constructed in the same way except that gold-filled jewelry has a higher gold content. Rolled gold jewelry, too, live for decades.
To maintain the shine of your jewelry piece that is solid gold, rolled gold or gold filled, scrub it lightly with a soft-bristled brush using warm water and detergent-free soap. Then, buff gently with a clean cloth. Store your pieces in a safe, dry place when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.
Gold plated jewelry has a layer of gold coat on top of another metal such as brass. Gold vermeil, however, involves a thicker plating layer of gold over silver to give it more durability.
Both gold plated and gold vermeil jewelry need care to preserve the plating coat and its brightness. We recommend you remove them before participating any physical activity to avoid being exposed to perspiration or salt water. Apply perfumes, creams and hair care products before wearing your plated jewelry pieces.
For cleaning, pour a small amount of mild soap into lukewarm water and use a small, very soft toothbrush to clean your jewelry. Store your pieces in a safe, dry place when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure. Use a protective (lined) box, a tarnish-resistant pouch or a plastic zip lock bag made of polyethylene.
925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. 999 on the other hand is what's known as fine silver, 99.9% pure silver.
Sterling silver jewelry will oxidize when exposed to some elements, so remove your silver jewelry before exercising, washing your hands or showering. If your sterling silver jewelry have become dull, a silver-polishing cloth is a great tool to make it shine again. However, it will not remove scratches.
Store in a safe, dry place when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.
Titanium is a lightweight, highly corrosion-resistant and durable material. When properly cared for, titanium will maintain its appearance for a lifetime.

Natural gemstones are minerals, stones, or organic matters cut and polished or treated for use as jewelry. To keep gemstones clean and shiny, scrub lightly with a soft-bristled brush, warm water and detergent-free soap. Avoid chemicals or excessive temperatures when cleaning. Store in a safe, dry place when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.
It is important to remember that gemstones are alive, and absorb energy that needs to be cleaned, cleared, and recharged so that you can reap the full benefits of the stones.
If you have a piece of pure natural gemstone with no metals used, it's important to put it in the sun for a few hours. The sun will recharge the crystals and gemstones to perfection. This method works with all stones except Amethyst. Also, putting your gemstones under a New Moon over night will open the way for new beginnings.
