Pagel and Sons FAQ
Q: What should I look for in a diamond?
Make sure it's a business you trust before you buy a diamond. The Four C's are Cut, Clarity, Color and Karat weight. All four are very important in the over all decision.
Q: How can I be sure I am purchasing a genuine stone?
Make sure you trust the employees of the store you are buying from. Ask for a certificate or an appraisal. Make sure it's stated on the receipt exactly what you purchased.
Q: How often should I get my wedding ring cleaned?
Minimum of every 6 months.
Q: I have an old engagement ring/wedding ring I want to do something with. Will most jewelers buy the settings and remount the diamonds into earrings or pendent?
Yes, you can remount them into anything you want or you can melt down the existing gold and create a new piece of jewelry.
Q: Is it true that if you keep sterling jewelry in an airtight baggie it will not tarnish?
Yes, sterling oxidizes when exposed to air. Keeping it sealed eliminates that.
