FAQs

Q: Why is my ring causing a rash on my finger?
A: Commonly, if you wear your rings doing household chores your ring will get dirty. Once it gets dirty, it causes a build up underneath the stones that can cause a reaction under your ring which can leads to rashes. The best thing you can do to prevent this is to remove your jewelry while doing chores and bring it in for professional cleaning every 6 months. You can soak your ring in warm water and mild dish soap at home any time but do it in a jar with a lid so no one accidentally dumps it out!

Q: How often should I get my ring cleaned and checked?
A: At least twice a year and we do it FREE! We inspect your rings at no charge any time you come in. We look for tight stones, thin prongs and channels, and if there are any chips in your stones. If we find anything wrong, we will do an estimate on spot for you.

Q: I inherited a ring from my Grandma, and I really done like it. What should I do with it?
A: There are a variety of options. The first is to trade the ring in for cash for instore credit. If it’s very sentimental but you just can’t convince yourself to love it then bring it in and we can redesign it on our counter sketch and use all grandma’s stones. Sometimes just adding a couple bands to each side will jazz it up to!

Q: What is Counter Sketch?
A: Counter Sketch is a computer aided design software that we use for designing jewelry. Our associates are trained to help you create the perfect ring, pendant, or earrings. Our CAD is located in the store and we design every day. All you need to do is bring your items in and you can sit down with our designers to come up with the perfect design. It’s more affordable then you think.

Q: Do you do laser jewelry repair?
A: Yes, we do! By using laser jewelry repair we are able to look closer at the problem and really pinpoint the issue. Our laser allows us to work on gold, silver, platinum, and on occasion glasses. We are able to work on jewelry with softer stones such as Opal, emerald, and tanzanite because the heat is so fast and precise.

A Good Thing to Know

Don’t wear silver jewelry in a swimming pool and never wear it in a jacuzzi! Silver hates chlorine and it really hates ultrasonic waves. Combine the two and your beautiful Pandora bracelet turns black in a flash. If that happens, bring it to us for a free professional cleaning and polishing. You’ll have to leave it for a day or two but you will get it back looking like new. Gold jewelry should not be worn in chlorine over a long period of time either. So if you swim weekly take it off.

FAQs

Q: How often do I need a pap smear and gynecologic exam?

A: You may have heard that the most recent guidelines suggest a pap smear only every 3-5 years. This is correct, with the exact number of years depending on your age, whether you’ve had abnormal pap smears in the past, and some other factors. It is important to note, however, that you should come for an ANNUAL EXAM yearly, as the pap only checks for cervical cancer and pre-cancer, while the visit also checks for breast/uterine/ovarian/vulvar cancer, infections, and many other problems that can contribute to poor health.

Q: When should my daughter start seeing a gynecologist?

A: While pap smears don’t generally need to start until age 21, there are other potential reasons for seeing a gynecologist sooner. Potential for sexual activity and problems with periods would be examples. Gardasil counseling (the HPV vaccine) would be another example, if your pediatrician or family doctor has not already covered this topic.

Q: Are there nuisance problems with which you can help?

A: Absolutely. We can help improve your quality of life if you are bothered by heavy or painful menstrual bleeding, PMS, menopausal symptoms, or urine leakage, to name a few. Let us sit down and evaluate you to determine the best set of options for your particular circumstance.
