Please see FAQ for Care Instructions.
We use a combination of natural diamonds, precious gemstones and solid gold. They are durable and can be worn all day and in the shower, unless they contain an opal. Opals are a porous stone that can absorb water and become temporarily transparent until they are fully dry. Please be careful when doing physical activity to avoid any scratches to the piece or damage to the stones. Solid gold does not tarnish and all of our alloys are made in house with hypoallergenic clean materials.
To keep your gemstones and ring sparkling; once or twice a month, place your ring in warm water with a bit of dish detergent and let soak for a 10 minutes. Gently brush with a baby tooth brush around and underneath the stone setting. Rinse in warm water and dab dry with a soft cloth. This will keep it always looking new.
If you insist to wear your ring in the shower please note the diamonds or gemstones might become foggy due to oil in body care products and soap build up. This can be cleaned with the instructions listed above.
