Diamond Care

Customers need to know how to care for their diamonds to keep them at their brilliant best. They should be cleaned once a month to maintain their sparkle.

Diamonds are attracted to grease, soap, skin oils and cosmetics. However they repel water! A greasy and dirty diamond stops reflecting light and looks smaller than a clean one. Here are some methods we recommend to keep those stones sparkly:

  • The Detergent Bath: Prepare a small bowl of warm suds with any mild liquid detergent. Brush the diamonds gently with a soft toothbrush while they are in the suds. Transfer to a wire strainer and rinse under warm running water. Pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • The Cold Water Soak Make a 50:50 solution of cold water and household ammonia in a cup. Soak the diamond for 30 minutes. Lift out and gently tap around the back and front of the mounting with a small brush. Swish in the solution once more, and drain on paper. No rinse is needed.
  • The Quick-Dip Method Buy one of the brand name liquid jewelry cleaners and follow the instructions.

General Tips:

 

  • Avoid contact with chlorine bleach – it can pit or discolor the mounting
  • Don't wear your diamond doing hard chores – the setting can be damaged and the stone chipped by a hard blow
  • Don't jumble all your jewelry together – diamonds can scratch each other and other jewelry
