3Adon jewellery care guide
We produce high quality jewellery that lasts generations. Each Adon product is a unique piece of craftsmanship, which requires a little help to stay in pristine condition. All jewellery, especially when worn everyday, must be cleaned. It may be not be necessary to use a professional ultrasonic cleaner – surprisingly, the most efficient methods of cleaning jewellery are often also the easiest. To clean your jewellery at home is very simple and easy. All you need is an old toothbrush, dishwashing detergent, hot water and a small plastic or glass bowl. Add a few drops of dishwashing detergent into the bowl filled with hot water, mix it and let your jewellery soak in it for at least 5 minutes. Take one item out, dip the toothbrush into the same liquid and gently scrub the surface set with gemstones and all the cavities and crevices, where the dirt usually accumulates. Do the same from the inside, especially around the gemstones, to remove dirt from the lower facets of the gemstones, as they are essential for good reflection of light. All jewellery can be cleaned this way, but jewellery with organic substances such as pearls, corals and amber should be cleaned in much colder water, no more than 40 degrees Celsius. The same applies to jewellery set with emeralds, as they are all treated with oil. You can repolish your jewellery at home too, using your toothpaste on a soft cloth soaked slightly with water. Rub the item gently for about 30 seconds, but avoid touching the gemstones, because toothpaste contains small abrasive particles. After cleaning and polishing your jewellery, give them a good rinse under running water and dry them with soft tissue paper or a piece of cloth.
4Amora gem care guide
Amora Gem is a true 'forever' gem that you will pass down to your children. However, for Amora Gem to look it's best, you have to ensure no buildup of grease, lotion, hard water, etc. that otherwise creates a layer between you and the Amora Gem. In general Amora may be cleaned just like diamond but here are some general tips: 1 - Weekly cleaning - an overnight soak in a solution of warm water and hand dishwashing soap will help to break up resident grease. While diamond is very attracted to grease, fortunately Amora Gem is not so your Amora can stay more sparkly between cleanings since grease (skin oil, lotion, etc.) will not buildup as rapidly. Regardless a once a week overnight soak will prevent longer term build up and keep your Amora looking great. 2 - Hard water buildup - occassional cleaning - We recommend a periodic soak in a solution of warm water and 1/4 to 1/2 vinegar to combat and remo-ve hard water buildup. Most water contains calcium which will deposit like barnacles onto most gemstones over time. As a ring is run under water, even when towel dry-ing, water will evaporate but leave behind the calcium carbonate (limestone) that will begin to build up on your gem. This can create a whitish haze layer and/or a rainbow effect in some cases, but in all cases reduces the optics of the gemstone. Worse, the buildup often occurs underneath the prongs where it can't be towel dried, and that layer can begin to impart color to the stone. Vinegar is acidic, and thus attacks the base PH of calcium carbonate and removes it. One caution - vinegar can attack weld joints to some degree, so for rings with weld joints you will want to minimize how long the ring itself so-aks. Thus standing the ring upside down with a solution just high enough to cover your gem will keep the ring weld (commonly at the junction of the prongs and ring shank) out of the solution.
