MATERIAL INFORMATION AND PRODUCT CARE

BaumgartenDiMarco is designed for those who recognize quality and seek something special. It is important to us to help you keep your merchandise in the best condition possible. Included in this section is a guide on how to best care for BaumgartenDiMarco products.

OUR JEWELRY IS CRAFTED BY HAND WITH LOVE AND CARE. EVERY PIECE IS UNIQUE.

RAW DIAMONDS

Diamonds are the hardest natural substance on Earth and the most popular of all of the world's gemstones. They are often referred to as the "gem of gems", due to their exquisite beauty.

The Polki Diamonds used in our jewlery are the raw diamond slices leftover when cutting diamonds. Each diamond is uniquely shaped and individually set by hand.

Our Diamonds are purchased from authorized diamond traders.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR DIAMONDS

  • Make sure to take care of your diamond piece carefully. Store it in a cloth pouch (you received one from us) or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box.
  • Try to not wear your jewelry in the shower or pool as the chlorine will tarnish it.
  • Allow all perfume, body lotion or cream to dry before you put on your jewelry.
  • Avoid exposing your diamonds to household chemicals, like bleach and ammonia, when cleaning or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage the diamonds.
  • There is no need to clean the diamonds in our jewelry.

STERLING SILVER 925

Pure silver, also called fine silver, is relatively soft, very malleable, and easily damaged so it is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. The most popular of these alloys is sterling silver, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR STERLING SILVER JEWELRY

With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime.

  • To minimize scratches and other damage, store your silver jewelry either in a cloth pouch (you received one from us) or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box.
  • Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals, like bleach and ammonia when cleaning or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.
  • Try to not wear your jewelry in the shower or pool as the chlorine will tarnish it.
  • Allow all perfume, body lotion or cream to dry before you put on your jewelry.
  • To clean your silver, use polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish. You can find fine silver polishes, solutions, or cloths appropriate to remove tarnish at most hardware stores or specialty craft stores. Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible.
  • Wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up; regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.

18KT GOLD-PLATED BRASS

We have chosen to work with brass as a base material in our 18k gold-plated items. Brass is a mixture of copper and zinc. It ages beautifully and has been used to create jewelry since ancient times. With 2-4 microns of 18 kt gold plating and a heavy lacquer, our jewelry will not fade off as often happens with inferior gold-plating techniques.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR GOLD-PLATED JEWELRY

  • To minimize scratches and other damage, store your gold-plated jewelry either in a cloth pouch (you received one from us) or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box.
  • Avoid exposing your gold-plated jewelry to household chemicals, like bleach and ammonia, when cleaning or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage the jewelry.
  • Try to not wear your jewelry in the shower or pool as the chlorine will tarnish it.
  • Allow all perfume, body lotion or cream to dry before you put on your jewelry.

18 K YELLOW GOLD

Gold has an extraordinary heritage with unique qualities. As an enduring element found naturally in a distinct yellow color, gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Gold is very strong. It's also the most malleable of all precious metals.

The color of gold is determined by two factors:

  • The type of metal alloys included
  • The percentage of each metal alloy

18K Yellow gold which is 75% gold, 12,5% silver and 12,5 % copper is the perfect mix for making jewelry.

A mixture of copper, silver and pure gold gives the precious metal its signature warmth.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR 18 K GOLD JEWELRY

  • Make sure to take care of it carefully and store it in a cloth pouch (you received one from us) or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box.
  • Try to not wear your jewelry in the shower or pool as the chlorine will tarnish it.
  • Allow all perfume, body lotion or cream to dry before you put on your jewelry.
  • Avoid exposing your diamonds to household chemicals, like bleach and ammonia, when cleaning or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage the jewelry. 

We hope you will enjoy your unique piece of jewelry.

GENUINE LEATHER

Our bags are made out of genuine leather.

We believe animals should be treated well and protected from unnecessary strain and stress. In production, we only use leather from buffalos, cows, goats, pigs and sheep that have been raised for meat production.

We only work with certified suppliers that live up to this standard.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR LEATHER BAG

Treated well, a leather handbag can last a lifetime, and the bag will age gracefully.

To keep your bag in mint condition, think about following:

  • Look after your bag and store it in its dust bag cover (you received one from us) or use a natural-fiber, soft pillow cover. Your bag needs to ”breathe”, so never store it in a plastic bag.
  • If the weather is really wet, consider using a less special handbag.
  • Too warm or cool storage environments can wear down the leather.
  • If dirty, try to get the dirt out with a damp, lint-free cloth. In a worst-case scenario, take the bag to a leather-specialist dry cleaner.

Wishing you many happy days with your special leather bag.

CASHMERE WOOL

Cashmere wool, often referred to simply as cashmere, is a fiber obtained from Cashmere goats and other types of goats. Commonly thought of as a wool fiber, cashmere is in fact a hair fiber, hence its unique characteristics as compared to sheep's wool. The word cashmere is an old spelling of Kashmir.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CASHMERE ITEM

Cashmere is a luxury fabric that’s meant to last, so it should be treated with care.

  • We recommend you use an experienced, qualified, professional dry-cleaner. Machine wash is not recommended.
  • Pilling, the formation of tiny balls of fluff, builds up over time. This is actually a process by which the cashmere fibers naturally shed, caused by wearing not washing. Pilling is not a sign of inferior quality. To rectify, simply lay your cashmere flat and run a pilling comb over the surface to refresh its finish. Over time, the pilling will reduce, and your cashmere will look flawless for longer.
  • To store, gently fold your cashmere item and place in the fabric bag that we provided.

Enjoy your lovely piece of Cashmere.
