JEWELRY CARE

CHILLATTO recommends cleaning your silver plated jewelry using a damp, soft cloth. Some silver jewelry can be cleaned with mild soap and ammonia solution or with baking soda. Please make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, as this will affect the finish. We suggest storing your silver jewelry in the box or pouch that we provide. Please remember that as this is fine jewelry,

CHILLATTO guarantees that our precious stones are genuine and of medium to better quality.  

The following stone cuts are available:

Round brilliant cut

Square cut

Princess cut

Gemstone enhancement:

For nearly four thousand years, the beauty of gemstones has been enhanced by various methods.  Before modern stone-cutting techniques were developed, oils and dyes were used to bring out the color in stones.  Since ancient civilization, emeralds have been soaked in colorless oil to make them appear more beautiful. These practices continue today.

It was also discovered that heating gemstones could produce changes in color.  Legend has it that Marco Polo observed the application of heat to rubies in Ceylon and introduced the practice in Europe.  The heating process is a practice that has been accepted worldwide and is permanent.

Chillatto Enhancement policy:

Chillatto selects only the finest gemstones for its jewelry. Our gemstones are inspected for quality, beauty and durability.  We only use stones that meet our high standards for color, clarity and cut.  We do not use any gemstones that have been enhanced to increase a stone’s weight, or to mask a potential blemish.
