White gold is a popular metal for rings and other fine jewelry. With good care, you can keep a white gold ring looking beautiful, but it sometimes requires maintenance beyond what is required for yellow gold. Most white gold is plated with rhodium, which keeps it whiter than the gold would appear in its natural state. Dulling of white gold may result from lack of cleaning or from this plating wearing off.

Keep your white gold rings clean by washing them in soapy water; use a mild hand soap. Add a little ammonia (just a drop) to the soapy water for added cleaning strength. Use a soft cloth when cleaning to avoid scratching the ring. Take your white gold to a jeweler if it starts to yellow. Many jewelers can bring it back to its original white finish by replacing the rhodium plating. Remove white gold rings before working with chemicals. Household chemicals such as bleach may damage metals. Likewise, chemicals in cosmetic and styling products may adversely react with jewelry. Store white gold rings in a soft jewelry case or cloth to prevent scratches.

  2. Colors. High-quality coral comes in a wide selection of colors. Red coral is the most common and is very popular in jewelry. Pink, orange and blue coral are also common in jewelry. The highest quality coral is even in color. Color irregularities in coral may indicate cracks or voids that have been filled in with colored wax.
  3. Cuts. Coral can be cut into a variety of shapes. Coral beads are common in necklaces and bracelets. Coral beads may have a smooth finish, polished to a shine, or they may have a carved design. Coral is also cut into large pendants, teardrop earrings and other unique shapes. Irregularly-shaped coral chips are also good for use in jewelry and are commonly strung together in groups for necklaces, bracelets or earrings.
  4. Jewelry. Coral is found in a variety of jewelry pieces. Look for coral as pendants, necklaces, earrings, pins, bracelets and rings. Often, you’ll find coral paired with other stones of complementary colors. Turquoise, garnet and pearls are common coral accompaniments. Coral can be used in nearly any kind of jewelry and with a variety of metals. Beaded coral necklaces can have a casual tropical appearance while chunky coral pendants and earrings can be elegant and formal.
  5. Care. Coral is organic and quite soft, with a rating between 3 and 4 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. It is important to handle your coral with care and avoid exposing it to chemicals. To clean your coral jewelry, wipe it with a soft damp cloth. Store your coral jewelry with care by keeping it in a small, soft bag or individual jewelry box to avoid contact with other jewelry.

Do you believe that crystal, beads and Gemstone have the healing power?  There are rumours stating that there are chakra on each crystal, beads and gemstone. So, they are not only ordinary accessories, but powerful healing elements.

Chakra’s are energy centers hovering an inch or two above the physical body in your aura field. They represent our emotional state, which if not balanced can over time, manifested into a physical illness. When we are happy and healthy, our chakra’s are in alignment, and we radiate good health. When we are angry or unhappy over a period of time, our chakra’s become blocked and unbalanced. The introduction of gemstones to help balance these chakra’s, helps absorb the negative energy and replace it with positive energy. The gemstones help us to be more aware of our spiritual, mental, and physical well being, and empower us to help ourselves achieve positive health. These changes are subtle and happen over time.
