Gold Jewelry Cleaning Guide

By in Uncategorized

At J.R. Jewelers we recommend cleaning your gold jewelry regularly so it maintains its beautiful luster. At least once a year we encourage our customers to bring their gold jewelry into the store so we can professionally clean their jewelry using an ultrasonic machine and polishing it if necessary. This is a complimentary service we offer our customers at J.R. Jewelers as a gesture of our gratitude for their patronage.

There are three variations of jewelry cleaning options which one can do at home between professional cleaning.

There are many different jewelry cleaning solutions one can purchase where you submerge the jewelry completely in a jewelry cleaning liquid for five minutes, then remove the jewelry and use a soft brush to apply friction to any dirt or buildup. This will increase the brilliance of gold and reduce the appearance of tiny scratches that occur over time. Dry the jewelry completely with a lint free cloth after cleaning.

Another jewelry cleaning option is to use a soft cleaning cloth together with a jewelry cleaning liquid. You apply the liquid to the cleaning cloth and then generously rub it onto the jewelry. Then you polish the gold in a gentle, circular motion, making sure to cover the entire surface of the gold. Next, using a dry lint free cloth, polish the newly cleaned gold, again using a circular motion. This will remove any excess cleaning fluid, and give your jewelry a deep, clear shine.

Lastly, you could fill a bowl with warm water and add a small amount of dish detergent to create a mild cleaning solution. Place your jewelry into the solution and let it sit for five minutes, then swish it around and let it sit another five minutes. Once you remove the jewelry from the solution, use a soft brush to clean the gold. Once again swish the jewelry into the soap solution and then rinse with cold water. Be sure to dry the jewelry well using a lint free cloth.

Gold is a soft metal so when cleaning your gold, keep in mind that anything too stiff will be abrasive and can causes scratches or leave your gold with a hazy finish. Once your jewelry is clean, make sure to store it properly. Your gold will require less cleaning and care if it’s stored properly. Since gold scratches so easily, it is best to store it separate from other jewelry and metals. Also, keep your jewelry in a cool dry place which will help preserve the gold brilliance for a longer period of time.

September – Sapphire

By in Uncategorized
PROPERTIES
  • RI: 1.762 – 1.77
  • Hardness: 9
  • Specific Gravity: 4.0
  • Species: Corundum
  • Optic Character: Doubly Refractive
  • Phenomena: Asterism, Color change, Chatoyancy (very rare)
MAJOR SOURCES

Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, India, Kumpuchea, Kenya, Tanzania, US, Madagascar, Cambodia, Kashmir

The color blue holds an endless fascination. From the high dome of the sky to the oceans that cover two-thirds of the globe’s surface, blue literally surrounds us. Seen from space, Earth is revealed as a shimmering blue planet. Therefore, it’s little wonder that the breathtaking blue of Sapphire has captured man’s imagination since the beginning of time. Ranging from a deep midnight blue to a brilliant cornflower blue, Sapphires have long been prized for their intense, velvety color.

Sapphire is actually the same mineral as ruby: they are both members of the corundum family and share the same physical characteristics and the same chemical composition. Even though most people consider Sapphire as the pre-eminent blue gemstone, the magnificently versatile Sapphire can be found in a rainbow of colors, spectacular yellows and oranges, vivid pinks and lavenders, and soothing greens. These diverse colors are referred to as “fancy” color Sapphires.

Beloved for centuries as the ultimate blue gemstone, the ancient Persian rulers believed the Earth rested on a giant blue sapphire whose reflection made the sky blue. The name for Sapphire comes from the Greek name for “blue”.

The birthstone for September, Sapphire symbolizes trust, sincerity and loyalty. Sapphire has also been worn as an engagement stone. Sapphire is the second hardest mineral after diamond, and it is a very suitable stone for daily wear. Blue and fancy Sapphires are very easy to incorporate as an everyday color for today’s woman. Find yours today at www.jrjewelers.com!

August Birthstone – Peridot

By in Uncategorized

peridot august birthstone jewelryPROPERTIES

 RI: 1.654 – 1.69
 Hardness: 6.5 – 7
Specific Gravity: 3.34
Species: Peridot
Optic Character: Doubly Refractive
Phenomena: None

MAJOR SOURCES: China, Australia, Brazil, Myanmar, Kenya, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, US

The green-apple crispness of Peridot is a perfect complement to today’s lively fashion colors. As the popularity of lime green continues to grow, so does the youthful appeal of this citrus-hued gemstone. Intense and dazzling, its juicy color appeals to all ages.

Peridot’s history can be traced back more than 3,500 years, when it was prized by the ancient Egyptians. Romans named the gem as the “Evening Emerald,” due to its brilliant color not fading in the lamplight, but instead seeming to glow in the evening hours. Hawaiian legend names peridot as the tears of “Pele,” the volcano goddess of the islands.
Peridot has been credited with a host of magical powers and healing properties, such as protection against nightmares and possessing the power to ward off evil.
Value is closely tied to how evenly distributed the color appears. With inclusions quite common in most stones, the most valuable are the cleanest and greenest. Peridot is the birthstone for August and comes in a variety of sizes and shapes.

JEWELRY GIFT GIVING GUIDE

By in Uncategorized

Women have always loved getting jewelry gifts from men. But, men sometimes need a jewelry gift giving guide to help with this process. Because jewelry retains its value, that adds to the significance of the gift. Also, because jewelry is an investment, a jewelry gift is a physical symbol of the declaration of the love one feels towards his beloved. The story of two people’s love lives on in a piece of jewelry that is given as a gift. Every time a woman looks at her wedding ring or a jewelry gift, she’s reminded of the love of the man who gave it to her.

Many women enjoy putting together personal wish lists at J.R. Jewelers to help their significant others narrow down their preferences, just in case the opportunity for a jewelry gift should arise! This allows for men to feel at ease, knowing that the jewelry gift they purchase will be one that their love will truly enjoy.

Valentine’s Day is the most common day of the year for jewelry to be given as a gift. Valentine’s Day isn’t the only day for giving jewelry as a gift, however. Birthdays and Christmas are also very appropriate occasions to purchase a great piece of jewelry for that special someone in your life. Anniversaries, only second to Valentine’s Day, is one of the top occasions to purchase jewelry for the love of your life. When celebrating a relationship milestone, buying jewelry is one of the best ways to show how much you care.

To assist you, I have included a list of suggested anniversary jewelry gift ideas which I pulled from a more comprehensive guide that was compiled in1937 by the American National Retail Jeweler Association. Each anniversary year milestone has a designated and suggested jewelry gift idea!

Coral, Jade

Ruby

Gold

Diamond

While all of the above occasions offer a great opportunity to purchase jewelry for a special person in your life, there is no reason to wait for any of these. Instead, make a gift really special and give it on an unexpected day, one that has no other reason than that you want to surprise someone with a great piece of jewelry they will love. And of course, shop www.jrjewelers.com for all your jewelry gift needs!

JULY BIRTHSTONE THE RUBY

By in Uncategorized

The birthstone of July, the ruby, has been prized for centuries as a symbol of love and immortality.

The color of a ruby can be described as blood-red or fire-red. Color that burns along the veins, and gives brightness to the night. If you’re looking for the color of life itself look no further than red. The gemstone that brings red to vivid life can have only one name: Ruby.

The “king of gems,” Ruby, is one of the world’s oldest and most revered gemstones. It is also one of the rarest, as red is the rarest occurring color in gems. It owes its startling color to the presence of the mineral Chromium. Rubies with hardly any inclusions are so rare that large stones of good color fetch higher prices at auction than even diamonds.

Fiery and romantic, showing brilliant depth and intensity, the red hue of Ruby is certain to draw attention. Its symbolic association with passion sends a drop-dead message of glamor and femininity.


You can find all these lovely Ruby jewelry and many more in our July Birthstone category.
