Agape's Jewelry Care and Cleaning
Exposure during ordinary wear to perspiration and household chemicals, like chlorine and hairspray, can cause buildup that dulls the surface of a any gemstone. We suggest periodic cleanings to keep your jewelry brilliant and refractive.
Keeping Your Simulated Diamond Brilliant and Sparkly Clean
A solution of one part ammonia and six parts water can be used to clean your jewelry at home. If cleaning by hand, gentle scrubbing with a soft brush should loosen most dirt and greatly increase the brilliance of the stones, but be careful not to scratch the metal of your setting. Once a year, it is a good idea to have your jewelry Professionally cleaned and have the security of the setting checked.
Make it Last Forever
Although our Diamond Simulants are some of the hardest stones known to man, you should have the same care as you would with a natural diamond or any other precious stone since an extremely hard blow can cause them to chip. In addition, chipping can also occur when stress is placed on any gemstone during setting, un-setting or in a host of other manners, therefore only a trained professional should work on your jewelry.
How to Store Your Jewelry
We recommend that all jewelry be stored individually in a jewel box or in soft cloth pouches when not being worn to prevent the stones from scratching or dulling other jewelry.
