WHAT IS THE SHINING SERVICE?
This service makes it possible to give a piece of Cartier jewelry back its sparkling appearance if it has become dull or has superficial scratches. This service is not available for rhodium finished jewelry.
Performed in a Cartier boutique by a Cartier specialist, this service includes the following operations:
- the piece of jewelry is diagnosed;
- the metal's sparkle is enhanced using a felt disc and shining paste. If this operation reveals slight scratches, these may be removed only by polishing.
- the piece of jewelry is cleaned, particularly its less accessible parts, by immersion in an ultrasonic tank filled with lukewarm soapy water. All jewelry creations may be subjected to ultrasound treatment, except for those containing emeralds, pearls and certain other gems that are considered too delicate.
- a technical and aesthetic inspection is carried out in accordance with Cartier quality criteria.
