Your diamond jewelry will continue to sparkle as brightly as the day you received it if you take proper care of it. However, while diamonds are extremely strong and durable, they are not indestructible. Because a diamond can be chipped or broken by a hard knock, it is important to remove your jewelry before participating in sports or other physically demanding activities.
Care for your diamond jewelry can be simple and straightforward if you follow these simple and practical guidelines:
Despite the fact that diamonds are the hardest gemstone, they can be chipped if struck too hard. Avoid rubbing your diamond against hard surfaces or other diamonds to keep it in good condition.
Remove all of your jewelry before performing any household chores that require the use of harsh chemicals, such as bleach, because these chemicals can damage certain metals and loosen stones from their mountings if they are not properly protected.
Maintain the cleanliness of your jewelry on a regular basis. Normal wear and tear on your diamond jewelry will cause your diamond pieces to become dirty over time, and this dirt can obscure the sparkle and beauty of the stones they contain. Cleaning your jewelry on a regular basis will ensure that it maintains its pristine appearance.
When cleaning silver jewelry that contains diamonds, clean the silver first with a silver cleaning cloth and then clean the diamonds with a soft lint-free cloth to avoid scratching the silver and avoid scratching the diamonds.
Keep your diamond jewelry in a soft pouch or within a soft-lined box to prevent it from being scratched by harder gems or metals, such as platinum.
Always remove jewelry before swimming in chlorinated water to avoid weakening of prongs and loosening of stones.
Diamonds are porous, and the oils from our skin, lotions, and soaps can accumulate on the surface of the stone over time, causing an oily film or haze to form, which makes the diamond appear dull. Using steam cleaning methods, a jeweler can restore the radiance of your diamond to its original state of luster.
When it comes to professional cleaning, take your ring to a jeweler you know and trust. If you wear your ring every day, have it professionally cleaned once a year; if you wear it less frequently, have it cleaned less frequently.
