How do I care for jewelry from Facets?
Visit Facets at least twice a year for professional cleaning and inspection. We will check for loose stones, worn prongs and general wear and tear. We do not recommend you wear your jewelry, especially rings, when doing rough work. Even though diamond is one of nature’s hardest materials, a sudden blow can chip or damage the stone. We advise purchasing personal property insurance for valuable jewelry pieces to supplement the limited coverage commonly found in most homeowners’ insurance policies. Even though precious metals are durable, they can still scratch. Store your jewelry in clean dry place and in a fabric-lined jewelry case or in a box with compartments and dividers to keep it safe and protected.
