Care for Lambswool

There are two main types of ingredient that may result in the deterioration of a Lambswool cardigan or wool sweater washed under incorrect conditions:

Sorry, but it gets a little technical from here on.

In addition to the normal surfactants, emulsifiers, perfumes etc contained in ordinary detergents, the so-called ‘bio’ detergents also include a small quantity of enzymes. These are protein digesting biological catalysts, and are effective at decomposing stains or soiling in which protinaceous material is the main constituent. Egg, blood, and most other food stains etc are all protein based and will be effectively removed by enzyme-containing detergents.

The problem is that like fur and hair, the histological structure of the fibre in Lambswool cardigans and sweaters is based on the polypeptide and disulphide linked protein Keratin. This can itself be affected by the biological components in some of these detergents. It is possible that enzymes may attack the cell membrane complex of the wool fibres, and lead to disintegration of the structure into its component cortical cells, this leads to a hole filled Lambswool garment.

In order to increase their apparent cleansing efficiency, some washing powders include bleaches or ‘bleach activators’. These are usually of an oxidative nature, though can also be reductive. Again, because of Lambswool and wool’s inherently natural characteristics, the fibre can be damaged by strong solutions in these bleach-containing powders.

More often than not, these types of washing powders will cause fading of colour to Lambswool cardigans and sweaters, even erosion of the fibre cuticle and a corresponding deterioration in resilience and strength.

Perfect Customized Engagement Ring

Well-established Jeweler

The jeweler that you choose should have an excellent reputation within the community as well as on the internet. You should ask family, friends, and co-workers if the jewelry store you are considering is a wise choice and if any of them have personal experience in dealing with the shop. Take your friend’s recommendation seriously, as they have no reason to lie to you.

If the jeweler has a web presence, read over the most recent reviews left on the company website and check out any reviews listed on popular business feedback sites such as Yelp! or Angie’s List. Again, take these reviews to heart, as people leaving feedback have no reason to lie. However, if you find a bad review nestled in the midst of numerous good reviews, you can probably dismiss it as simply a disgruntled customer having a bad day.

You also want to make sure that the gemstone you are buying comes with gemological Institute of America, Inc. (GIA) certification. A responsible jeweler should be able to show you the GIA report with no questions asked.

Start Your Search in Plenty of Time

This is sort of a no-brainer in terms of customized jewelry. You do not want to begin looking for a jewelry shop to create you customized ring right before you plan to pop the question. Finding a great jeweler in itself takes time, not to mention the time it takes to actually design the ring. Give yourself at least six months to complete the entire process.

Know What to Look for in a Diamond

Anyone on the search for a diamond ring, pendant, necklace, bracelet, etc. should be familiar with the four C’s: cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. Know that the higher the ranking the diamond has in the four C’s means the better quality of gemstone you are getting. However, this also means that the piece will be more expensive than its lower ranking counterparts will.

Once you have familiarized yourself with the 4 C’s, it’s time to determine what your budget shall be. You should lock in a solid budget for yourself before ever setting foot in a jewelry store. It is very easy to overspend once your eyes lock on all of those gorgeous engagement rings, especially if you are gaining inspiration for a custom design.

Consider Custom Designing a Wedding Band/Engagement Ring Set

If you want both rings to complement one another, deign them at the same time using the same jeweler. This ensures the rings will sport the same style, cut, color, and clarity. This option will also save you money as most jewelry shops offer package deals.

Light Weight Necklace

A magnificent necklace is, thus, a part of the life of a lady, no matter from which age, cast or community group she belongs. This piece of jewelry has been in tradition since our ancestors and we, the Y-Gen ladies, have inherited it from our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers or someone else before her. This ornament is a compliment to the Indian culture and heritage and we will love to pass it on to our next generation also. But time has changed a lot and women no more stay only at home. The modern women manage household & office at the same time. Therefore, no matter, how much she loves to adorn necklaces, her daily activities won’t allow it. But when ‘there is a will, there is a way’. Keeping this problem in mind, many jewelers have started making light weight necklaces that are not only sassy but classy, without that extra weight.

These necklaces can be worn in office parties, casual ceremonies, festive occasions and in any anniversary. They will go perfectly with all kind of dresses whether it is traditional saree, classic salwar kameez or trendy Anarkali gown. The feature that makes it unique is its light weight for which it can be easily carried out whenever you want.

Modern jewelry designing houses strive to make necklaces that are worth wearing. Precious metals like gold, silver, platinum can be used to manufacture them, but they go fit & perfect in gold. The light weight comes when the gold is purified and tactfully engraved in order to make magnificent designs. The necklaces are then sent for the hallmark authentication and after a few assessment, if they pass the tests, the hallmark is engraved on them.
