Size Guide THE PERFECT FIT

To ensure the most accurate ring size, measure your finger at room temperature. Measuring whilst your hands are cold might result in a smaller size than ideal, as the cold sometimes makes fingers half their normal size. When looking for rings with a wider band, we always recommend getting a size larger than your usual size as they can feel a little snugger than the traditional eternity ring.

Your perfect ring should fit comfortably, feeling tight enough that it won’t fall off and still able to fit over the knuckle when you remove it. While placing an order for rings, please give us your American/ British ring size (please specify if it is American or British).

care and cleaning Jewelry Care

Pearls and other organic or porous gemstones should be protected from the alcohol or acids present in make-up, perfume and hairspray. A useful tip to remember: always wear your jewelry last, after your perfume has dried.

Jewelry dips and sonic cleaners can damage pearls and gemstones and wear down rhodium coatings. Generally, jewelry should be cleaned with nothing stronger than mild soapy water and a soft toothbrush. Porous gemstones and pearls require only lukewarm water.

CARING FOR PEARLS

There is no real need to clean pearls as the natural oils on your skin will help maintain their luster. The usage of very mild detergent might even damage their delicate coating.

Pearls should be restrung every one to four years, depending on how often you wear them. If the string on your pearls is still bright white, it is probably still fine to use. If the string is beginning to look dull or grey, the time to restring them has arrived. To arrange to have your pearls restrung, simply take them to the nearest Ivar showroom, or contact customer services on +91 9962634567 or info@ivarjewelry.com

PROTECTING
ETERNITY RINGS

Most of our gold jewelry is made with 18 carat gold. The purity of the metal makes it quite soft and therefore needs to be treated with care.

Eternity rings are more susceptible to damage on all sides because the gemstones are set all the way around. The setting and the stones can be spoiled by sharp impacts that can occur in instances where you primarily work with your hands, engage in vigorous exercise and similar activities. It is therefore best to wear eternity rings on your non-leading hand and remove them if you know you are about to embark on an activity that might expose them to substantial risk

GEMSTONE CARE

Although gemstones are some of the hardest natural materials in the world, their cut and setting can make them vulnerable. Larger stones in particular should be worn and stored with care.

Porous gemstones might be stained by oils or liquids. It is therefore particularly important to avoid contact with face creams, sun-tan lotion and household chemicals. Wash porous gemstones in lukewarm water and polish with a lint-free soft cloth.

Porous gemstones are more susceptible to damage when hot. It might be best to avoid wearing such jewelry to environments like the beach, where the sea, salt, sun and sand could easily mar the appearance of your gems.

STORING

It is important to be careful when storing your jewelry, both to prevent theft and ensure no damage.

A small jewelry pouch or a travel case where you can store your rings, earrings and pendants can help safeguard them. To keep your jewelry scratch-free, secure and untangled while travelling, it is worth packing a jewelry wallet where each item has its own pouch or compartment.
