**Any pieces marked and sold as foiled, closed back, and/or enamel, should never come in contact with water as this can cause irreparable damage. Due to the nature of antique jewelry, all stone carat weights are approximate as they are measured in their setting. To obtain an exact measurement, the stone would need to be removed from its setting which could impact the integrity of the piece**
