The most common item of jewelry that most people take in for cleaning is their wedding ring, particularly one with diamonds. A wedding ring suffers the same exposure to the everyday onslaught of food and washing up that my watch had, not to mention the dirt and grease that can accumulate under and around the band itself. Routine cleaning can be carried out with a toothbrush - as long as you don't use it on your teeth afterwards. However, to rid your wedding ring of the long-term build up of tarnish and grease, you need to clean it thoroughly with a jewelry cleaner.
Fine cremation jewelry is made from precious metals, such as sterling silver or white or yellow 14 karat gold. Gem stones add another dimension of sparkle and brilliance. Depending on the type of stone used and its weight, a cremation pendant encrusted with gem stones can cost from several hundred to thousands of dollars.
Gold vermeil jewelry must not contain base metal other than silver. A certain level of thickness should be maintained for the gold plating. Jewelry made by plating base metals such as nickel, cannot be considered as gold vermeil jewelry. The durability of this jewelry is based on the purity of gold (karats) and the thickness of the layer of gold plating over silver. The thicker and purer the gold plating, the longer is its durability.
Once you have chosen a coin your next step is to purchase a gold or silver bezel and then mount your coin. Bezels for coins can be found on several sites on the web and can be purchased in standard measurements. Simply measure your coin and order the appropriate sized bezel for your coin in the corresponding finish. Mounting the coin is relatively simple to do by loosening the bezel by turning the small screw on top with a screwdriver. You then insert the coin making sure the pendant will be straight on your necklace and then tightening back up the screw to make sure the coin is nice and secure. After this you can polished and then finally the last step is to find a gold or silver chain that will go well with your coin pendant and slide your pendant on.
