Vintage and estate jewelry exhibits natural wear due to its age. Some of our jewelry is over 100 years old, and therefore must be treated as such! Natural wear is how we can tell that a piece is old and rich with history - vintage and estate rings can be especially fragile due to the amount of exposure they get over several lifetimes of enjoyment.
Each Trumpet & Horn ring has been restored by our jewelers with the utmost care to not only secure the setting and the stones, but also to preserve the original integrity of the work that went into making it. Just like all new rings, vintage rings are not indestructible, and care should always be used while wearing them. Please don’t wear your ring while cleaning, gardening, exercising, or during any other strenuous activity that you feel may cause damage to it. Take off your ring before you go to sleep at night, and please don’t wear it in the shower!
Jewelry always looks best when it is clean. Grease and dirt like to stick to diamonds, so make sure to clean your ring regularly (at least once every few months) to keep it looking its sparkling, shiny best. To clean your ring at home, all you need is a soft, old toothbrush and warm soapy water. If you have any questions about taking care of your jewelry, please don’t hesitate to ask us! With proper care and attention, your ring should sparkle for a lifetime.
