LAGOS gemstone designs are crafted using the highest quality stones available. LAGOS gemstones are not synthetic - color variation within several shades of one color is natural and part of the individuality of the piece. Gemstones are softer than diamonds; they can become chipped or scratched if not handled properly. Special attention in the care and cleaning of gemstone jewelry is required.
Over time, gemstones will build-up residue from daily wear. Gemstones can be cleaned using a slightly soapy solution (1 part dishwashing liquid + 10 parts water). Place your jewelry into this solution and brush lightly using a soft toothbrush. Rinse under cool water and repeat as needed. Gently buff with soft cloth to dry. Ensure your piece is thoroughly dry before storing your jewelry.
Here are helpful suggestions to insure your jewelry is safe from unnecessary wear and tear:
- Always remove gemstone rings before washing your hands.
- Avoid extreme temperatures when wearing your LAGOS gemstone jewelry.
- Do not place gemstone jewelry in an ultrasonic cleaner. Do not steam-clean gemstones.
- Do not use any abrasive or any household cleaners while wearing your gemstone jewelry. Do not rub gemstones with an abrasive cloth.
