When treating your piece with the same care in which it was created, and by following this simple care guide, your new RUUSK pieces should last you many years to come.
Gold is a naturally soft metal and should be treated with special care to avoid damage. Avoid exposure to perfumes, oils and household chemicals. If tarnishing occurs, wipe with a jewellery cloth or clean with a suitable cleaning agent. (Please note that White Gold pieces are Rhodium plated. It's best to avoid using polishing cloths on these pieces as it this will remove your plating.)
For best care, jewellery should be removed prior to swimming or doing household chores which involve the use of abrasive cleaners or chemicals and when applying lotions, perfumes or make up. It is also not recommended that you wear your rings for certain gym actives, in particular weight lifting which cause weights to directly rub against your ring/s.
Diamonds are one of the world's hardest natural materials but that doesn't mean they can't chip. Please take care of your ring and be sure not to knock it against other hard materials. Always take great care when doing heavy lifting or manual work, because you may chip your stones or loosen your stone setting. It can sometimes also be best to take off your rings when sleeping.
Emeralds are a beautiful addition to any modern heirloom but this lovely gem should never be cleaned ultrasonically or with steam. Avoid exposing your emerald to extreme temperatures as heat can damage emeralds by extending existing fractures.
Please note that wear and tear in the course of normal use is not considered a manufacturing fault. RUUSK pieces are handmade from precious metals that naturally dent or scratch over time as you wear them during your life adventures. This is a normal 'weathering' aspect of all jewellery which we personally adore. If your pieces features any diamonds or gemstones, we recommend having your settings checked with your local jeweller every 1-2 years as stone settings can loosen over time.
