How To Care For Your Precious Jewels
Diamonds, Moissanite and Solid Gold are all considered precious metals or gemstones and require extra care to ensure they last you a lifetime.
All these materials are certified ethically sourced and sustainably made. At S-kin Studio Jewelry we focus of protecting the environment and reducing our carbon footprint.
Each of our fine jewelry materials are extremely durable in their own right. However, to maintain its natural shine and sparkle you will need to take special care of them over time. Here are some of the best way to care for your fine jewelry.
Diamonds are a precious stone and one of the most durable materials on earth. Known to be one of the purest forms of carbon, diamonds are created through immense pressure and heat. Diamonds have a Mohs Scale of Hardness score of 10, making them perfect for everyday wear.
Each of our diamonds are ethically lab grown in Mumbai, India. We only source and use lab grown diamonds as they are much more sustainable and ethical than mined diamonds. Our diamonds have a G-I colour rating and a S1 clarity.
Whilst mined diamonds can be conflict free, they have a long history of involvement in civil war and the mining of them often involve the exploitation of human rights.
The price and quality of diamonds are accessed based on their grading in the 4 C's, learn more about the 4 C's of diamonds

Moissanite was first discovered by Henri Moissan, a French scientist, in a crater that had fallen off a meteor. Natural moissanite is extremely rare which makes it virtually impossible to be made into jewelry.
All Moissanite stones are now lab created and are one of the most scintillating gemstones available on the market. Moissanite stones are still incredibly sturdy and have a Mohs Scale of Hardness score of 9.25.
S-kin Studio Jewelry uses ethically produced Moissanite from Mumbai, India. All our Moissanite stones have a D colour grade and a clarity rating of VVS1.
Moissanite and Diamonds are quite distinctively different.
