General Care of ornametns
Each piece of jewellery is very delicate so we must have to take care of them. So treat your jewellery with loving care and respect. It will stay young looking like most women. Remember to put your jewellery on after applying make-up and the hairspray and avoid contact with perfume.
Before entering a chlorinated pool remove all ornaments. Remove your jewellery when carrying out cleaning or other chores. Remove all jewellery if you’re contemplating a sauna as it will burn you when it heats up. Cleaning fluids can damage both the metal and the gemstones. Many gemstones are damaged by prolonged exposure to heat. A miss-hit with the hammer could end a beautiful relationship with not just your engagement ring.
Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval.
The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone. This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
Cleaning is must in gemstone
For stubborn dirt, a soft brush can also be used on these types of stones. In hot environments, the heat can cause the water to evaporate and discolor an opal. Jewellers use mechanical cleaning procedures to clean gemstones. Some of these methods can be harmful if done incorrectly, so ensure that the cleaning is being performed by a qualified professional.
One common method is ultrasonic cleaning, which uses frequency waves to clean gemstones. They can be cleaned in the same mild detergent and water solution as other gemstones, and delicately scrubbed with a very soft brush. Designer jewellery can cover the gamut of rings, engagement and wedding rings, watches, necklaces and pendants, bracelets and anklets, cuff links, tiaras and other unusual pieces.
