LOUISE JEAN pieces are individually handcrafted in Australia with the utmost care from start to finish. Please see our recommendations below to ensure the longevity of your precious piece.
DO’S & DONT'S
We believe jewellery should be loved and worn every day; however, it is important to understand that your piece is delicate in nature and crafted with precious metals and gems that are not indestructible and can be damaged with improper care.
Please read our do's and dont's to ensure the to ensure the longevity and visual appearance of your special piece.
It is important to first ensure your ring is a perfect fit. If the ring is too loose, it is likely to move and possibly be knocked as a result.
Over the lifetime of a ring, it is inevitable that it will scratch however we recommend being mindful of all contact to your jewellery as delicate pieces can be caught on clothing or scratched and bent when lifting heavy objects.
Pavé settings are more likely to catch on certain materials so extra precaution should be taken to ensure the setting retains its integrity.
Whilst diamonds are the hardest natural material on Earth and can resist scratching (except to other diamonds), they are not indestructible. When your jewellery isn’t being worn, we recommend storing your pieces individually in their original packaging in a cool, dry place to avoid contact with other diamond pieces.
The hardness of a metal is determined by the metal type and karat (9K, 14K, 18K & Platinum). For this reason, it is highly advised metals of the same karat are worn with each other to ensure the longevity and appearance of your pieces.
CLEANING AND SERVICING
We offer complimentary lifetime servicing. As part of this service, your ring will be given a thorough inspection, clean, polish, and tightening of stones (if required). It is recommended you have your ring services every 12 months.
If your ring is crafted in white gold, it will require re-plating in Rhodium. This can be added to your service for an additional charge. Re-plating is not covered in our warranty.
