Diamond Care

THE RIGHT CARE FOR YOUR PRECIOUS STONES

Diamonds are valuable investments that will continue to shine for generations with proper care. Though diamonds are the hardest substance on earth, they are not indestructible. They can be cut only by another diamond, but a hard blow can cause them to chip.

THE BASICS OF DIAMOND CARE

  • Visit a professional jeweler yearly to check your setting and evaluate any necessary repairs or maintenance. In addition to performing any necessary repair work, your jeweler can expertly clean your jewelry, restoring its original brilliance.
  • Diamonds must be kept clean and stored carefully when they are not being worn. Invest in a fabric-lined case, a box with dividers, or individual bags to prevent the diamonds from scratching other jewelry or other diamonds.
  • Casually inspect your jewelry regularly.
  • Avoid wearing your diamonds while doing rough work or working with harsh chemicals. A diamond is extremely durable, but a hard blow could chip your valuable stone.
  • Avoid over touching your diamond as oil from your fingers can cloud the way your diamond looks. Regularly wipe your diamond with a clean cloth to remove excess lotion and other products.
  • Diamonds, like anything else, get soiled over time. Everyday products can create a film on diamonds and reduce their brilliance. Keeping your jewelry clean will maximize its sparkle.

A GUIDE TO CLEANING YOUR DIAMOND AT HOME

Regular cleaning will keep your diamond jewelry in sparkling condition. Here are some tips for caring for your diamond at home between professional cleanings:

  • Once a week, aim to soak the diamond in a cleaning solution overnight or for at least 15 minutes if you are short on time.
  • There are plenty of options for household jewelry cleaners if you don’t have a professional solution on hand:
  • Mix one part baking soda with one part water.
  • Mix one part mild dish detergent to three parts warm water.
  • Mix one part ammonia to one part warm water.
  • Remove the diamond from the cleaner and brush it with a soft, clean toothbrush to remove any leftover dirt. Remember to brush the back of the diamond as this area tends to collect the most oil and dirt.
  • Remember to be extra gentle with your brush on fragile settings and estate jewelry. Too much pressure can loosen the setting.
  • Rinse the ring in cool water and pat dry with a lint-free cloth.

(If you notice loose stones or any other noticeable damage to your jewelry, promptly bring it to a professional jeweler for repair.)
