The formation of organic gemstones is often associated with the physiological activities of the various kinds of organisms in nature, such as: amber is secreted by the plant to protect wounds or bud resin after long geological formation of fossils, pearl nacre is “TB” by foreign body to stimulate growth, teeth, horn, bone are animals vital organs of the body, the coral is years, the bones from accumulation by coral polyps. Therefore, the properties of organic gemstones also contains inherited from the cheap Cartier love bracelet
features of the organism, they contain most of organic composition, hardness is not high, acid-proof alkaline poor heat resistance, compared with other jewelry, more need to cherish and maintain the wearer.
Pearls, main component is calcium carbonate, protein and water. When we wear, the collection and clean pearl jewelry to pay attention to:
1. Stay away from the acid. Pearl of the structure and characteristic of the luster is formed from the tiny platy calcium carbonate crystal layer upon layer overlay, but calcium carbonate in the acid decomposition happens, pearl surface become dull, even completely lose luster. After many close-fitting wear pearl jewelry, remove directly into the collection box, after a period of time is found the pearl luster less, but because human skin secretion of sweat are weak acid.
2. Away from heat source. Pearl protein and water is an important part of high temperature can make the moisture evaporation, make protein aging, serious damage to the structure of the pearl, become yellow to become dark, heavy light is completely broken. High temperature can make auxiliary pearl inlaid glue dissolve or aging, caused by pearl fall off.
3. Away from the bleaching of material and atmosphere. Pearl beautiful colour and lustre by organic pigment color, bleaching substances, such as: 84 disinfectant, hydrogen peroxide and many daily cleanser will be bleached fade easily, especially gold and black pearls, pearl.
4. Clean the pearl jewelry it is best to use pure water or after boiling water and neutral detergent. Clean immediately after dry or cold wind blow dry. Do not soak beads, beads hole in the residual water and detergent will corrosion wear rope, damaged, every time after wearing the wipe with a clean damp soft cloth.
5. When swimming, sauna, hot springs not appropriate to wear pearl jewelry, the environment has a bad effect on pearl, not only material containing sulfur and chlorine corrosion will part K gold, at the same time easy to make Cartier nail bracelet replica
jewelry slippage loss in the water.
6. Perfume, cosmetics can penetrate into the structure of pearl, pearl make pearl color pollution.
7. Pearl hardness is not high, should be kept.
8. Pearl inlays adorn article need to regularly check Mosaic fastness, pearl beads need to be replaced once every 1 ~ 2 years lacing, wear, the higher the frequency interval should be shorter.
Coral, also composed of calcium carbonate, a small amount of protein and water, but its structure is different from the pearl. Compared with pearl, coral is easier to maintain:
Acid damage of calcium carbonate, sweat while the weak acid is the greatest enemy of coral, was neglected of the surface of the red coral sometimes conspicuous white “mould” is affected by the result of corrosion.
2. Stay away from high temperature and bleaching of material, the color of the coral was very great influence on its value, high temperature cause fading and bleach can destroy organic pigments.
3. The use of pure water or warm water to clean the coral jewelry, household dish detergent is the most suitable neutral detergent, coral jewelry also can’t soak in water for a long time, with the cold wind blow dry immediately after cleaning. Coral beads can’t soak in the water clean.
4. After cleaning the surface of the coral jewelry can apply a thin layer of transparent oil to isolate air and harmful substances, but can only use the grease of essence, pigment, such as mineral oil, edible oil, baby oil.
5. Coral is not high hardness and brittleness is bigger, in addition to require a separate storage, also must not happen fall in wear and impact. 6. Don’t wear when swimming, sauna, hot springs.
Amber, almost entirely composed of organic matter, is a natural resin. Attention should be paid in the wear and maintenance it sensitive to heat and light and the characteristics of hardness and brittleness.
1. Amber is very sensitive to temperature changes, the temperature of 150 ℃ when amber is began to grow soft and to rise gradually decompose metamorphism. The change of temperature will make the volume change of amber inclusions, cracks in amber. Surface aging, high temperature will cause the amber to dark Cartier ring replica
brown film layer and a surface crack.
2. Amber light sensitive, especially ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet ray can accelerate the aging of amber, amber surface gradually turbid, lose luster, microcracks. So amber jewelry to avoid prolonged sun exposure, collect showing when the ambient light should be as much as possible to contain no ultraviolet (uv) light source.
3. Amber is almost entirely composed of organic matter, should be carefully contact with organic solvent, such as: wash armour water, dry cleaners, and all kinds of thinners.
4. Amber hardness is not high brittleness is very big, extrusion, knock against damage easily.
5. Amber brittleness is big, processing is not easy to enchase firm, often add glue to help fixed, so the amber jewelry do not use hot water soak cleaning, hot water may cause glue shedding.
Ivory, composed of calcium phosphate, gelatin protein and elastic protein main ingredients, also contains a small amount of fat. Ivory is one of the most fragile varieties of organic gemstones, it is more sensitive to temperature, humidity, light, collection and maintenance is also very important attention things.
1. Ivory contains about 35% of organic matter, the temperature is too high, the organic matter aging will be more apparent, yellowing, cracking and embrittlement.
2. The environment temperature changes frequently, causing ivory repeated expansion volume shrinkage, easy to crack in the ivory, especially with more complex carver ivory products.
3. The ivory is sensitive to humidity changes. Ivory not only contains a certain amount of moisture, also has the water absorbability, ambient weather change, ivory will release or absorb moisture, and the size will shrink Cheap Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra Necklace replica
or swell. Environmental humidity changes frequently also makes ivory products out of shape, craze.
4. Glare prompted aging ivory yellow, ivory products collection, the location of the display to avoid direct sunlight, use do not contain ultraviolet light, soft and light.
5. Ivory products should be washed with water less as far as possible, if pay dust, usable brush cleaning, minor stains, can use wet soft cloth to wipe, if the stain is serious, need to use detergent to clean, is processed in a short period of time as far as possible, must not soak, and rinse thoroughly to ensure that the detergent residue. The ivory after cleaning, use hair dryer cold wind blow dry, prevent ivory bibulous deformation.
6. Show ivory products best placed inside the glass cover, avoid the dirty also alleviate the impact of temperature and humidity changes. Collection of ivory products to put anti-insect medicine inside the box, prevent insect eating, do not place the desiccant.
