Always a Classic.
Fine diamond jewelry remains the cornerstone of the jewelry industry. In fact, according to a study in November of 2019, Americans spent $36 billion on diamond jewelry! Famously stated, "diamonds are a girl's best friend." At Lewis Jewelers, you can explore our vast collection of this most popular fine jewelry staple. However, it's also important to note that we also carry lab-grown diamonds if they're your preference. As diamonds go, believe it or not, the single most popular purchase are diamond earrings, a fine jewelry staple. They can be large or small - depending on your budget! Certainly that is also true for just about any fine jewelry piece you own. But it also depends on what size may be right for you. When it comes to earrings, in particular, you should actually consider the size of your earlobes. If they are small and petite, earrings may be uncomfortable to wear in a larger size. Large earrings can be made lighter, however, based on the metal selection. Fine diamond jewelry can be set in white, yellow, rose gold, and platinum.

Stacks and more stacks.
We've seen stackable bands take center stage for the last few years, including diamonds and colored gemstones, and in several different metals. Create stacks and layers for your fingers, arms and neckline. Start with your own fine jewelry and add bands, necklaces, and bracelets from Gabriel , then venture into some that make a glittering statement by Tacori . You can even create the illusion of stacked pieces with certain styles that are multi-layered within one piece of fabulous jewelry.
Colored gemstones have always been an important part of several collections here at Lewis Jewelers.

Luckily we carry collections by the fabulous Marco Bicego and Tacori, both contemporary designers.
Yellow gold was once a staple in classic jewelry and then it fell out of popularity for quite some time to its white gold counterpart. We're excited yellow gold is back in style, and interest in it has been growing over the last few years. We love the artists that are adding texture to the richly colored gold metal, and the finish is exceptional, like those you can find in our Gurhan, Marco Bicego, and Gabriel fashion pieces.
Caring for Your Fine Jewelry
It's a nice feeling to own, wear, and cherish fine jewelry. But, it also needs some occasional TLC, and at Lewis Jewelers, we have a few tips to keep your jewelry in perfect condition.
It starts with taking inventory.
Take out that jewelry box and take note of everything you own. You might actually find some treasures you haven't worn in a while! But, you also might find some treasures you no longer love. Separate those and store them properly (more about that below) and consider what you might like to do with them. Perhaps it's time to turn something you no longer wear into something you will! Contact us and we'll set a convenient time to chat about custom design or gold and diamond buying.. While you're taking inventory, check to make sure you have an up to date appraisal.. Fine jewelry will change in value and regular appraisals are a way to ensure the value is current if it's lost or stolen.

You can find a gemstone care guide here for advice on what gemstones you can clean safely.
The Safest Cleaning Methods Are Easy!
Most colored gemstones and diamonds can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap such as Dawn (no detergents) and a soft brush. Soak your jewelry in a small bowl. Pearls are considered a softer gem that can be scratched easily. Clean your pearls in warm, slightly soapy water, with a very soft brush. Rinse thoroughly and lay your pearls to dry on a towel or chamois. Since silk thread will stretch, it's best to let the pearls sit until the strand is completely dry. Vintage and antique jewelry should be handled delicately and can be cleaned with just water and a soft, lint-free cloth.
Have an electric toothbrush with pulsed water? That can be great to use as well, along with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Rinse your jewelry in a glass of water to remove cleaning solutions since you risk losing loose stones - or even an entire piece of jewelry - if you rinse directly in the sink. And, for safety's sake, if you're cleaning your jewelry over a sink, be sure the drain isn't open!
Let it dry. After that, you can also polish carefully with a lint-free cloth.
Storage made simple.
Fine jewelry should not be tossed into a drawer or left on the top of your dresser. If you do that, you can expect to damage those precious gemstones and scratch your metals. Most fine jewelry pieces come in a box or pouch from our store. Of course, you can feel free to use those as your storage. But, a jewelry box that features individually padded slots for rings and posts for hanging necklaces and bracelets might be the best option. Plus, you'll be able to easily pick the pieces you want to wear without having to open separate pouches or boxes.
- Sterling silver should be kept in an anti-tarnish bag or cloth.
- Diamond jewelry is delicate and can scratch easily. When you store it, keep it separated from other jewelry pieces. A fabric-lined jewelry case with individual compartments is ideal, but you can also keep them in their own pouches or wrapped in tissue paper or soft fabric.
- Gold chains can tangle quite easily. Always store them on a flat surface to avoid tangling.
- Pearls or opal gemstones will draw moisture from the air, so make sure to store them in a dry area!
Most important: Keep your jewelry away from any chemicals!
Chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum and may harm some colored gems. Everyday items like hairspray, lotion, perfume or other cosmetics can contain chemicals that will permanently damage the surface of your pearls and other delicate gemstones.
Remember, your jewelry is precious. While it's great to do some in-home spa treatments to clean them, just remember your fine jewelry should still be checked every six months at our store and cleaned frequently.
