What is the best way to care for and clean a diamond?
Here are some general guidelines: avoid wearing your diamonds while doing housework, yard work or any kind of rough work. Even though a diamond is extremely durable, a hard blow could chip it. Also, avoid harsh chemicals while doing household chores, especially chlorine bleach. The best way to clean your diamonds is to use jewelry cleaner or use a bowl of warm water with a mild soap. Brush the pieces with a soft brush and then rinse under water. Then dry your piece of jewelry with a soft cloth. Jewelry cleaner is available at Arthur's.
I have my own diamond but I’d like to purchase one of your settings. Can you set my diamond into one of your rings?
Yes, for a small fee of $50-100. All of our rings are available for purchase, regardless of whether or not you purchase a center diamond from us. However, many rings cannot be manufactured unless we have the exact diamond measurements.
What if I order the incorrect ring size?
It's not a problem. Arthur's offers free ring sizing for the lifetime of the ring. Even better, we’ll overnight the newly-resized ring back to you for free!
Are any of your diamonds laser treated, clarity enhanced, color enhanced, or modified in any way?
Arthur’s Jewelers only sells diamonds that are 100% natural and untreated. The Gemological Institution of America (GIA), American Gem Society (AGS), The European Gemological Laboratory (EGL), will not issue grading reports on diamonds that have been treated or enhanced, so purchasing our diamonds is a double guarantee that your diamond is natural.
Are the gemstones used in your jewelry natural or synthetic?
Every gemstone used in our jewelry was mined from the earth. We do not sell synthetic or lab created gemstones.
How can I make sure the diamonds I receive are actually the diamonds I ordered?
We ship every loose diamond and diamond engagement ring with an independent GIA, AGS or EGL report. This report can be examined by a qualified gemologist and compared against the unique characteristics of your diamond.
Are Arthur’s Diamonds Conflict Free?
