When you purchase a piece of fine jewelry from Faini Designs Jewelry Studio, we recommend that you bring it in for cleaning and inspection a minimum of two times per year (although you're welcome to come in more often than that!). You may wonder why this is important.
Having your jewelry cleaned and inspected is free! We will let you know if any repairs are recommended and tell you the price for the service. Additionally, your jewelry will sparkle more after a cleaning. Every day, we have guests say, "Wow, this has never looked so clean!" after having their jewelry cleaned.
Just like your vehicle requires regular maintenance, your fine jewelry also requires regular maintenance. Could you imagine driving a vehicle and never having the oil changed? Daily wear of jewelry allows dirt to become trapped in between and underneath diamonds. If the dirt is not removed by having the jewelry cleaned, it will cause wear on the metal and stones, eventually causing the stones to become loose and fall out. Additionally, we can recommend small repairs, such as having tips or prongs repaired or replaced, ensuring that your diamonds and/or gemstones remain secure. In the long run, regular jewelry maintenance will save you money.
Many people like to have jewelry cleaning done around the same time as their dental appointments. Both are recommended twice per year, so it's easy to remember when to do both! While you’re in the store, it's also a good time to see what's new and develop a relationship with our staff.
If you want to clean your jewelry at home in-between visits to our store, you can try try this surefire method of keeping your ring looking its best:
Grab a toothbrush and some dish soap, mixing it in a small bowl filled with hot water. Following this, take your ring and drop it in the bowl, letting it soak for about ten minutes. After that, take the ring out with tongs - as the water will be very hot - and gently brush it until all dirt has been removed. Finally, submerge the ring back into the bowl and rinse off the soap with cold water.
