Crafted in our Hatton Garden atelier, the classic design of our Thalassa oval sapphire engagement ring is elevated with several unexpected features, including double talon claws - a discrete detail that adds subtle interest to the centre stone. Beneath the stunning oval sapphire, a halo of diamonds is hidden, complementing the tapered pavé set diamond band. A striking alternative to a diamond, Thalassa is available in platinum, white, yellow or rose gold, with a half, three-quarters or fully set diamond band for a brilliant finishing touch.
How to Care for Your Diamond and Gemstone Jewellery
Diamonds and gemstones are beautiful precious stones that can provide a lifetime of joy if you look after them properly. With the right care and attention, it is possible to maintain the condition of your diamond and gemstone jewellery so that it continues to shine bright and the stones don’t lose their sparkle.
To preserve the beauty of your Budrevich jewellery for many years to come, our guide to jewellery care includes advice on cleaning, storage and repairs. If you have any further questions after reading the guide, please get in touch with us directly and we will be happy to advise.
There are a few simple rules to follow when it comes to caring for your diamond and gemstone jewellery. Follow the simple rules below will help maintain the condition of your jewels.
- Avoiding contact with household chemicals, including perfume, hairspray, cosmetics and lotion, and exposure to intense heat sources extreme temperatures
- Always remove your jewellery when you go swimming
- Gold jewellery is very sensitive to household bleach, which may cause the precious metal to discolour, erode or even disintegrate
- It is also a good idea to remove your rings when washing your hands, although we do not advise doing this when you are out – in a restaurant, café or other public place – as there is always a risk that you will forget to put your jewellery back on and leave it behind
- We recommend removing jewellery before going to bed because chains can get caught and earrings can cause irritation or come unfastened as your sleep
- Avoid bumping or banging it on hard and abrasive surfaces, like worktops
Diamonds may be the hardest material on earth, but it is still possible to chip them, and precious metals may become scratched or dented if they come into contact with hard materials. To protect your diamond and gemstone jewellery from damage, remove it before carrying out any heavy lifting or strenuous labour.
Cleaning your jewellery at home
Clean your diamond and gemstone jewellery regularly at home using warm soapy water and a very soft brush, then rinse with lukewarm water. Polish gold or platinum with a soft cloth and avoid using alcohol wipes when cleaning. At the same time as giving your jewels some TLC, check their overall condition and inspect the settings and prongs, which are particularly susceptible to damage. If you do notice any damage, however small, please get in touch and we can take a look.
As part of our after-sales service at Budrevich, we invite you to bring your jewels in annually for a clean, polish and professional check. To ensure you don’t forget, after 12 months we will send you a reminder email.
While your jewels are with us, they will be thoroughly cleaned in an ultrasonic machine and high-pressure steam machine, which will remove any gunk, grit and dirt, restore the shine of your diamonds and gemstones, and sanitise the precious metal.
Storing your jewellery
Always store your jewellery somewhere clean and dry. The protective boxes and pouches that are provided with each Budrevich jewel have a special tarnish-proof lining and are ideal. This will prevent scratching or gemstone damage when they interact with one another and unnecessary tangles. As a malleable element, gold is particularly susceptible to scratching when it rubs against diamonds and gemstones.
If you would prefer to store your diamond and gemstone jewellery in a jewellery box, make sure yours has different compartments or slots so that your jewels can be kept separate.
Please note that pricing is indicative and subject to change. Our best efforts have gone into making sure prices are as accurate as possible, but given the unique and precise nature of each diamond’s own characteristics, prices can vary depending on the Colour, Clarity, Carat and Cut of your selected stone.
