Investing in a lab grown diamond is a cost effective alternative to a natural diamond. Lab grown diamonds have the same chemical, physical, and visual qualities as natural diamonds; however, they have a much lower price tag.
Before cleaning a piece of jewellery, it is important to assess its condition. This should include checking for loose stones and broken clasps, noting the type of metal, and looking for any signs of damage or discolouration. Additionally, inspect any surface areas to make sure they are free of dirt and debris.
No, rhodium plating is not suitable for all types of jewellery. It is most commonly used on platinum, palladium, white gold, and silver and can be used to protect the underlying metal from wear and tear and to give the jewellery a brighter, more reflective finish. Gemstones that are softer in nature, such as opals, pearls, coral, and turquoise, require extra caution when undergoing the rhodium plating process. On the other hand, sturdier stones, such as diamonds, rubies, and sapphires, are able to withstand the rhodium plating without any additional precautions.
