Diamond Care Cleaning

Look After Your Diamonds

So it is important that jewellery not be stored together since it can be scratched or tangled. Even though diamonds are the hardest substance known to man, a diamond will scratch another diamond. Diamond jewellery should never be worn while doing heavy work. Points are vulnerable to chipping and even everyday activity can loosen a setting. This is why it's important to visit a professional jeweller every six months to have your diamond's mountings and settings checked.

Cleaning your Diamonds

To be sure your diamonds always sparkle, it is important to clean them periodically. Here are some recommended methods.

Professional Cleaning

This is the best option. It's also important to have your jewellery checked occasionally to make sure prongs haven't bent or weakened.

Mild Liquid Detergent

Soak your jewellery in a small bowl warm, sudsy water made with any mild liquid detergent. Gently brush the diamond jewellery with a soft toothbrush while it is in the suds. Then, rinse each piece under warm running water. Pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. Make sure to always stopper your sink.

Vodka on the Rocks

No one is sure how it was actually discovered, but it is safe to say that at some point someone took the idea of a "vodka on the rocks" literally and discovered an imaginative way to clean their precious diamonds. Simply let the diamond soak in a glass of vodka. Preferably one you do not intend to drink.
