Sapphire Ring or Sapphire Jewelry Care
Caring For Your New Custom Sapphire Ring / Jewelry
Natural sapphires are extremely hard and durable gemstones, they are not prone to chipping, cracking or breaking. The only other gemstone that ranks harder are diamonds at a 10 on Mohs scale for a harness with sapphires being a 9. Because of the hardness of sapphires, please take care that they do not scratch softer gemstones in your jewelry collection, this also holds true for sapphire and diamond jewelry.
Recommended Tips For Taking Care of Your New Custom Sapphire Ring.
- Store your sapphire ring separately to other pieces of jewelry you own ideally in the ring box provided by us.
Check your sapphire & diamond's set often to make sure the stones are not loose.
You should remove your sapphire ring to bathe or wash your hands. Store it in a safe place so it does not slip down the drain.
Avoid wearing your sapphire ring when you are doing housework, gardening or participating in a sport.

Information On Precious Metals
Gold: One of the most malleable and ductile alloys, it is an inactive alloy which means it won’t rust, tarnish or decay. White gold is occasionally plated with rhodium to create a brighter silver finish, over time the plating can wear off and may need to be reapplied. Our master jeweler will rhodium plate all white golds rings if you sending the ring back to us for its service as part of the service fee.
Platinum, a silvery to silver-gray metal and has excellent strength. When platinum is scratched, the metal is merely displaced or moved, it does not chip or break off as you might find in other alloys such as gold and silver. As a result, scratched platinum sapphire rings can be re-polished with little loss of weight. After being worn platinum can develop a patina that can look flat or similar to brushed chrome. Buffing, steaming or re-polishing the metal will restore the original polish, or you can choose to rhodium plate your platinum to make the shinier finish as you see in white gold.
