Taking care of gemstones
Steam cleaning is quite effective but can result in thermal shock because of the often-quick temperature change. It can result in cracking because parts of the stone are forced to expand at different times. Most gemstones can be immersed in a solution of mild detergent and warm water.
Likewise with pearls; although soaking can result in discoloration, so this should always be avoided. After soaking for a few minutes, gently clean the stone with a soft brush. Pearls should be dried after cleaning, using a soft towel, and air-blown dry. Extra care should be taken to remove dirt from the bottom of the setting, a common place for build-up to occur.
A diamond is a beauty
A diamond's beauty, rarity and price depend on the interplay on all the 4 C's cut, clarity, carat and color. The other big trend is the revival of antique cut diamonds such as the cushion cut. Side stone options include these 7 shapes as well as baguette and trillion.
Its purity is the perfect symbol of a new beginning. It is believed that the first diamonds were discovered nearly 3000 years ago in India. They were considered valuable because of their ability to refract light and were used as either decoration or as talismans - for protection and warding against evil. Generally speaking there are 7 principle diamond shapes for Jewelry - round, marquise, emerald, princess, pear, oval and heart. The strongest trend in Jewelry design is diamond set in white metal particularly platinum.
