  1. Spring Cleaning Your Fine Jewelry

    Leave a Comment

    We clean everything else this time of year, why leave your fine jewelry out of the tradition? When your jewelry sparkles, you sparkle!

    Why is cleaning important?
    Think about your favorite pieces. How often do you wear them? What about your wedding ring? Your wedding ring is worn every single day of the year! It touches everything your hands touch! Over the year, your beautiful and precious wedding ring has been exposed to a list not limited to dirt, oils, soap, lotion, food, cleaning chemicals and who knows what else! While a diamond is rather resilient, the exposure to such things can leave your diamond looking dull or cloudy.

    The benefit of In-Store cleaning!
    When you bring your piece into Tennies Jewelry, not only are our experts able to clean and polish your piece, but they are also able to inspect it. The inspection process is very important as our goldsmiths are able to inspect for loose stones, worn prongs, or other signs that the piece needs repair. Once the piece has been inspected, your piece will be polished and cleaned in a way that cannot be done at home.

    We recommend having your favorite pieces inspected and cleaned every six months to ensure it’s beauty and resilience.

    Traditionally when we think of engagement rings, we think of your popular and brilliant colorless diamond. However, from the coveted bright Yellow Canary Diamond, to the deep and vibrant Blue Sapphire, 2014 has been adding pops of color to those popped questions time and time again! Colored stone engagement rings have been sneaking up the radar for the past decade, but finally in 2014 those colored beauties are paving their way!

    Engagement rings have always been known to come in a variety of shapes and sizes. But 2014 has been a year of daring and unique shapes. The Cushion cut and Emerald cut diamonds have the spotlight this year, alongside a growing appreciation for the flower. That’s right, flowers. You’ll find flower detailing in the band, the setting and even in diamond clusters to form a flower.

    Metals
    For many years white gold and platinum setting have been all the craze. While they’re not going anywhere, they’re having to make room for the newest trend of rose gold settings and even recycled metal bands!
