COVID-19 Concerns

Your safety is paramount to us. We ask all our customers to call to ensure that our store hours have not been affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be instituting protective measures for our customers, and our staff, when they visit us.

We also wanted to make sure that you take into account your jewelry that you already are wearing, or have at home, during this period of frequent hand sanitzer use.

CDC recommends using alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol content. These sanitizers that use alcohol are benign to jewelry items as alcohol is the main germ-killing ingredient. However, non–alcohol-based ones typically use chlorine-based compounds as germicides. These chlorine compounds could react with water and release free chlorine. Free chlorine radical is very reactive and could cause tarnishing of jewelry, especially if it is made of sterling silver.

Soap can damage the surface of jewelry and cause rhodium to be worn away with consistent use. Remove your rings before washing your hands with soap.

Diamonds and sapphires won’t be damaged by either of the above, but soap and sanitizers can leave a filmy residue on the stones over time, dulling the sparkle, and will likely need an ultrasonic cleaning we can provide. Pearls may lose luster or become discolored with contact to alcohol-based solutions.

Please be safe out there, and we'll see you soon.
