I would rule they do, but if the effect is not permanent, the gain over the
regular maximum is lost when the item is lost, and not automatically
regained when a new item is found.

So Black Diamond raises S (from the top of my head, could be mistaken).
That would allow for higher skills in Mace. But lose the diamond once, even
for a few second, and you start over from the regular max and all extra
expertise is lost.
