All Anatometal’s gemmed jewelry can be sterilized in an autoclave.
There are different gemstone settings available among Anatometal jewelry, including bezel set and prong set. None of this settings use adhesives or glue, instead the gemstones are safely secured by having the metal carefully wrapped around their edges.
Anatometal only uses the highest quality synthetic gemstones available.
An advantage of synthetic stones is that scratches, impurities or contamination can be prevented during the lab growing process; because of that synthetic stones appear clearer and are stronger and more suitable to be set in Stainless Steel or Titanium compared to natural stones.
Genuine stones are also available on request.
Anatometal gems are available in Brilliant round-cut, Cabochon-cut, Princess-Cut, Bullet-cut, Heart-cut, Marquise-cut, Oval-cut, Pear-cut, and Emerald-cut. For more information on different gem cuts, please go to the Anatometal official homepage.
About Passion Topaz Gemstones
Until recently, natural stones, except for some cabochon-cut gems and diamonds, were only available with 18k gold settings, because of their higher risk of scratches or cracks if set into harder metals like surgical stainless or titanium.
However, in 2012, Swarovski succeeded in developing a new technique to color natural topaz, which is strong enough to use with titanium and surgical stainless.
Anatometal is using those stones, known as Passion Topaz, which are strong and safe to use on the human body. Those are now available with titanium or stainless settings.
About Threaded Flat Bottom Gem Ends
Threaded Flat Bottom Gem Ends, in order achieve a lower gem end profile, use Swarovski Crystal Glass which is lead free and can be safely sterilized.
How to Care for your Gemmed Jewelry
After wearing gemmed ends for a prolonged period, gems can start to look darker; this is due to dirt that accumulates between the gem and the base of the jewelry.
This may be caused by bodily fluids or living environments or any of the following:
- Hot spring or bath soaps entering the gap between the gem and base of the jewelry
- Frequent exposure to UV Light (sunlight or tanning salons)
- Frequent use of body cream or sunscreen around the jewelry
The best way to remove the dirt is by using an ultrasonic washing machine. (We do not provide this service).
Please refrain from using toothpicks or sharp objects to remove the dirt as this may cause damage to the jewelry.
Please note that Anatometal does not use any glue or adhesives. Therefore their jewelry setting can end up damaged when touched with force. The damage of gems or settings due to force cannot be fixed free of charge.
