How To Care for Your Diamond

Diamonds, being the hardest natural material, are durable yet require care to keep them sparkling like new. Regular maintenance ensures that diamonds remain free from buildup and damage, preserving their exquisite appearance for generations.

The following are some tips on how to keep your diamonds clean and sparkling:

Routine Cleaning

For routine cleaning of diamond jewellery at home, follow these detailed steps:

  • Prepare Cleaning Solution: Mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive detergents.
  • Soak Jewellery: Place your diamond jewellery in the solution for 20-30 minutes to loosen any dirt or grime.
  • Gentle Scrubbing: Use a soft-bristled and clean toothbrush to gently scrub the diamond and setting. Please do not use a hard toothbrush as this may scratch your diamond setting. Pay special attention to the back of the diamond, as this is where most dirt accumulates.
  • Rinse Thoroughly: Rinse the jewellery under warm running water to remove any soap residue. Ensure the drain is closed or rinse over a bowl to prevent loss.
  • Dry and Polish: Pat the jewellery dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. You can use a jewellery polishing cloth to restore shine.

For deep cleaning or to address issues like loose settings or stubborn deposits, it's advisable to seek professional cleaning services. Jewellers have the tools and expertise to safely clean and inspect your jewellery, ensuring its beauty and integrity are maintained.

Proper Storage

To ensure the longevity and beauty of your diamond jewellery, proper storage is key. Here are some best practices:

  • Use a fabric-lined jewellery box with individual compartments for each piece to prevent scratches.
  • For added protection, wrap each piece in a soft cloth or place it in a separate pouch.
  • Keep your jewellery box in a dry, cool location away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures, which can damage the jewellery over time.
  • Avoid storing diamond jewellery with other gemstones as diamonds can scratch softer materials.

These steps will help maintain the pristine condition of your diamond jewellery, protecting your investment and preserving its sparkle for years to come.

Avoid Using Harmful Solutions

Avoid using harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach or abrasive substances for cleaning diamond jewellery. These materials can harm the metals often alloyed with gold in jewellery settings and potentially scratch the metal surfaces. It's essential to stick with gentle cleaning methods to preserve the integrity and appearance of both the diamonds and their settings.

Gentle Handling

It's essential to handle your diamond jewellery with care to prevent any accidental damage. Rough treatment can cause scratches, loosen settings, or even result in chipped stones.

Always remember to remove your jewellery during physical activities or when engaging in household chores that involve harsh chemicals.
