In today’s blog, we will share an experience story of one of our happy client, who has appreciated not only for our exquisitely designed custom jewelry but also for our premium and reliable jewelry services.

Chris B was one of our customer, who approached us when he was at the doorstep of his engagement. Chris visits our store to purchase a Diamond Engagement ring for her fiance (now wife).

As he doesn’t have any idea about jewelry and diamond, especially that what kind of design & style a girl prefer to wear. In this case, Dan helped him to understand each and every nooks and cranny of the diamond and engagement ring.

Dan has explained all the process including setting, styles, and types of an engagement ring. It takes a whole day to explain the anatomy of an engagement ring, Chris was looking quite satisfied with this session.

In the next morning, he visited us again with the new style and design to select an Engagement ring. After spending much time, he could not find that matched his requirement, so, he finally came to a conclusion that he will go for custom design engagement ring.

Chris wanted us to design an awe-inspiring customized design engagement ring for her fiance. As his fiance love large diamond look and vintage style ring, so we proposed him for Vintage Halo Engagement Ring.

For this, we have arranged multiple meetings in which Chris has discussed his design brief with our custom designers and diamontologist.

We have created an outstanding ring that reflects the perfect merge of big diamond look in the vintage style. Both the couple were quite impressed by the ring and client has left an inspiring & lovely review:

“When I first walked through the door at Ellis Jewelers I immediately felt welcome. I was looking to purchase an engagement ring for my now Fiance and had a specific style in mind with a picture of it. Being a male, I had zero knowledge of diamonds and ring styles but Dan led me through the process and it couldn’t have been easier. I worked directly with Dan the entire time, looking to find the exact style I wanted. After a good search, we were not able to find anything that matched so Dan decided to have the ring custom designed and made exactly the way I wanted it.

The results blew me out of the water and the price tag too. It was actually a lot less than I had anticipated. The ring looked absolutely perfect and exactly the way I wanted it to look. Needless to say, my Fiance loves it also. The entire staff at Ellis does an amazing job and you can tell right away they value you as a customer, unlike those box or chain jewelers that will never remember your name. I wouldn’t recommend any other Jeweler other than Ellis Jewelers.”

A Complete Jewelry Care Guide By GIA

Jewelry is the most valuable and cherished thing that every woman wishes to keep it new and safe. Anyhow, they can’t afford to lose the shine and newness of their jewelry because sentimental values are usually associated with their jewelry collection. Furthermore, it is important to maintain the newness and look of your jewelry. How?

 

Today experts from GIA are sharing some Jewelry Care Tips that can help you to keep your heirlooms sparkling for generations.

 

TIPS ON CARING FOR JEWELRY

By GIA

 

Jewelry is one of our most intimate and cherished accessories. Understanding how to care for and protect your treasured jewelry can make a world of difference in maintaining its beauty and keeping your heirlooms sparkling for generations to come.

 

BE CAREFUL WITH LIGHT AND HEAT

 

Just as the sun’s harmful rays can damage our skin, light and heat can affect a colored gemstone’s durability and color. Over time, and in excess, they can also fade or damage some gemstones, such as amethyst, kunzite, topaz and shell cameos. Pearls and other delicate materials, such as ivory, will bleach under extreme exposure to light. Other gems, especially amber, can darken over time when exposed to too much light.

Excessive heat and sudden temperature changes may also fracture some gems. Heat can easily remove the natural moisture these gems need to keep their beauty. Pearls, for instance, can dry out, crack and discolor. Opals can turn white or brown, develop tiny cracks, and might lose their play-of-color.

 

KEEP YOUR JEWELRY AWAY FROM CHEMICALS

 

Exposure to chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals – gold, silver and platinum – and may harm some colored gems. Even everyday substances like hairspray, lotion, perfume or other cosmetics can contain chemicals that will permanently damage the surface of your pearls and other delicate or porous gems (like turquoise). Fine jewelry should be removed before diving into a chlorinated swimming pool or before using household cleaners. Many of these cleaners contain ammonia, which can be too harsh for delicate gems or vintage jewelry. Chlorine bleach, another common household solvent, can pit or damage gold alloys.


 

GIVE TREATED GEMS SPECIAL CARE

 

Many colored gemstones are routinely treated to improve the appearance of color and clarity. These treatments can be negatively affected by heat, solvents, steam and ultrasonic cleaners. Knowing whether your gem has been treated is the first step to knowing how to care for it. This is where a GIA report comes in – it contains important information about your gem and any detectable treatments it may have undergone.

 

USE ULTRASONIC CLEANERS WITH CAUTION

 

While you can purchase a professional ultrasonic cleaner for $150 or less, you should be aware that not all gems and jewelry can be safely cleaned in it.

 

Ultrasonic cleaners should not be used to clean:

 

  • Gemstones with surface-reaching breaks that have been filled with a substance such as oil, resin or a glass-like material

 

  • Organic gem materials such as pearls, coral, ivory, or amber

 

  • Gems that have been coated with a non-permanent substance like plastic or wax

 

  • Some heat-treated gemstones

 

  • Gems that are susceptible to heat and temperature changes whether they are treated or not. Some of these gems include tanzanite, feldspar (sunstone and moonstone), fluorite, iolite, kunzite, lapis lazuli, malachite, opal, topaz, turquoise, zircon and others

 

What’s more, the vibration generated by the machine can sometimes shake gems loose or chip gems that are set with their girdles touching.

 

This type of cleaning is best left to jewelry professionals who know about different gem materials and understand when and how to use the ultrasonic cleaner safely.

 

THE SAFEST CLEANING METHODS ARE ALSO THE EASIEST

 

Most colored gems can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush. A pulsed-water dental cleaning appliance and a soft, lint-free cloth can also be used. Be sure to rinse your jewelry in a glass of water to remove cleaning solutions since you risk losing loose stones – or even an entire piece of jewelry – if you rinse directly in the sink.
