Diamonds NEVER get harmed.
    That may be fine and dandy for diamonds, but I can tell you from experience that chlorine will damage the metal. That is probably what the jeweller was referring to.

        lol never even thought of that ha! I'm an idiot. I know straight chlorine (like chlorine bleach) can damage 10K gold, but if it's diluted with water (pools, etc), that can't damage it can it? Maybe in the long run with repeated uses of pool over years the metal can break away?

        What was your experience? I'm curious now :)

        Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

          Well I am in the pool a lot so any jewelry I had definately suffered. Even my e-ring, which is a higher quality metal is slowly starting to show signs of wear. If I spent $25K on a ring I would definately not wear it in the pool. In fact, I would be scared to wear it period unless it were a really special occasion and even then I wouldn't feel comfortable until I put it away somewhere very safe. For me, it is like walking with an insane amount of cash; just not safe.

            I don't drive a car worth that much, not to mention wearing something on my finger. If you can and want to afford that, then good for you. But I am waay too forgetful and clumsy to have a single piece of jewelry worth that much.

            Honestly, I'm seriously thinking about sewing a hidden pocket or something into a piece of clothing or underwear.
