Ethical Sourcing

ETHICAL SOURCING
Doing our part in using recycled precious metals and conflict-free diamonds and gems in all our jewelry.

All our diamonds and gemstones are ethically sourced from site holders and companies who adhere to the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme:
The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) imposes extensive requirements (*) on its members to enable them to certify shipments of rough diamonds as ‘conflict-free’ and prevent conflict diamonds from entering the legitimate trade.

As an eco-friendly alternative to natural diamonds, we also offer lab-grown diamonds and moissanite in variety of shapes and colors.

Maintenance + Care

Jewelry is one of our most intimate and cherished accessories. Understanding how to care for and protect your treasured jewelry can make all the difference in maintaining its beauty and keep it sparkling for generations to come.
Your jewelry is unique and every piece will require special care and handling depending on the types of metal, type of gems and the type of setting that is used. Use this as a general guideline in caring for your jewelry.
DIAMOND-Sapphires-Ruby-Moissanite
These precious gems both natural and Lab created are the hardest and most resilient gems. A diamond will not scratch but it will possibly chip if hit in the right place or at the right angle. Sapphires, rubies and moissanite set rings may scratch if abused or neglected. It is highly recommended to remove your rings during activities such as biking, gardening, house chores and exercise. Your rings will not only last longer, they will stay in tip-top shape.
Pearls, Coral, Ivory, Amber
These organic gem material require gentle care when wearing and cleaning. Use lukewarm water and mild detergent and dampen a clean cloth with this solution and gently clean. Wipe dry with a clean cloth and let air dry. If you have a pearl strand, store the pearls flat to avoid stretching out the strand of silk thread. Store in a breathable pouch to avoid drying and discoloration.
Cleaning
The safest cleaning methods are also the easiest. Most jewelry can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush. Be sure to rinse your jewelry in a glass of water to remove cleaning solutions since you risk losing loose stones or even an entire piece of jewelry if you rinse directly in the sink.
Semi-Precious Stones
These gems come in a variety of beautiful colors but are in general less resilient than diamonds, sapphires and moissanite. The same care principle applies to semi-precious stones and with extra care you will enjoy wearing them for many years.
Setting Types
Settings come in different styles and all offer unique looks and degree of security to the stones that are held in place. The density and size of setting and the size of stones set certainly contribute to the durability and security of the piece. Types of settings include bezel, channel, prongs, gypsy, and various forms of pavé.
Pavé settings are the most common setting used on smaller diamonds as they showcase the small stones the best. Due to it’s delicate nature, pavé set rings will require extra care and checks to ensure that the metal has not worn down. It is highly recommended to remove pave set rings during high impact activities such as gardening, exercise and heavy lifting where the ring may bend and loosen the set stones.
Insurance
It is strongly recommended that you insure your item for loss, theft or damage after receiving it. Jewelry is commonly insured as a rider on your homeowner’s or renter’s policy, or through companies like Jeweler’s Mutual which specialize in jewelry insurance. For a free no obligation quote on your purchase with DeBearj Jewellers please contact us: info@debearjjewellers.com Pavé settings are the most common setting used on smaller diamonds as they showcase the small stones the best.
