We use electronic testers to test almost all gemstones and diamond, they have the ability to separate the cz/glass/moissanite gems from others.
We only title something a diamond if it's a natural earth mined diamond.
For blue and red gemstones (Sapphires/Ruby/Spinel/etc) it's very likely they are synthetic gemstones, unless they noted as Natural.
We have completed coursework on gemstone identification, please ask any and all questions.
All of our diamonds are vintage, they are reused and repurposed from older jewelry. Diamond jewelry is always 100% natural diamonds that are not enhanced.
Industry Standard treatments for gemstones are heat, for turquoise and softer stones stabilization and backing is an industry-standard.
We now offer silver ring resizing on most rings.
$25 simple ring sizing and $50 to size an antique ring.
Please add both your ring and the sizing to the cart at the same time.
Your order will take 48-72 hours longer to process due to the sizing.
