Answers

Answer: 
(1) Sapphire is a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, so extremely durable and scratch resistant. Synthetic sapphires are lab-created but obtain the same physical, optical and chemical properties as natural sapphires. Since they have the same properties as naturals, they will not scratch or chip more easily than a natural stone.
(2) Silver jewelry is easy to look after. The best way to keep your silver looking great is to wear it on a regular basis as this stops it oxidising with the air and tarnishing. We recommend you store your silver jewelry in a soft pouch to prevent scratching when not worn. Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray and cleaning products to maintain the shine.
Obe of the best cleaning methods, is to use aluminum foil to clean your tarnished silver jewelry much like you would your silverware. Line a tray with a piece of crumpled aluminum foil and place your jewelry on the foil. Sprinkle a layer of baking soda over the jewelry, then pour boiling water over it. The tarnish will transfer from the jewelry to the foil. You may need to flip or move the jewelry around so all sides come in contact with the foil. Remove and rinse with water.
(3) The center stone is this ring is approximately 6ct tw. The accent stones are approximately 1.8ct tw.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or contact our customer care team for a personal shopping experience at 1-800-Helzberg. Thanks so much!

Answer: 
The stone itself appears (in my experience of having it) to be very durable. I would be more concerned with the ability of sterling silver to handle the weight of the stones.

I have this ring and have twice had to have the biggest side stone on one side replaced. Over time, the ring seemed to loose it's round shape, and bend, which caused the side stones to come unset.

I always take my jewelry to Helzberg, they know the best way to clean them and they inspect them which allows you to get a heads up if something it getting misshapen. The cleaning is free so I would suggest just doing that.

This size center stone is the equivalent of a 6 carat diamond! :)

I hope that helps!

Answer: 
Do to the unique design of this ring the largest size that it is available in would be a size 9. If you were to size beyond this recommended size, it would cause the ring to lose its integrity. You may also experience stone loss issues. Still have further questions? Contact one of our Jewelry Experts at 1-800-435-9237.

Sapphire

Sapphire, the September birthstone, has been popular since the Middle Ages and, according to folklore, will protect your loved ones from envy and harm. Medieval clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven, while commoners thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings. Blue sapphires range from very light to very dark greenish or violetish blue, as well as various shades of pure blue. The most prized colors are a medium to medium dark blue or slightly violetish blue. Sapphire is a variety of the gem species corundum and occurs in all colors of the rainbow. Pink, purple, green, orange, or yellow corundum are known by their color (pink sapphire, green sapphire). Ruby is the red variety of corundum. White sapphires can appear to be just as natural as a true diamond offering the same beauty and lifelong value.
