Forgings

Our forgings have optical finishes; the jewelry should be stored in cloth bags or in a manner that prevents its surface from being damaged. We recommend metal surfaces be cleaned occasionally with a Luminex cloth to remove body oils.

Diamonds

To clean your diamonds prepare a solution with 1 part Dawn, 1 part ammonia and 2 parts boiling water. Move the piece around in the solution and then run under hot water.

Tightening earring "ear nuts"

Ear nuts will loosen their grip with time so you must re-tighten them if you ever feel they do not have a strong hold on the ear wire. Place the ear nut flat side down on a hard surface. With your thumb and index finger hold the "curls" of the ear nut and squeeze the curls inward and down.
