Caring for your Diamonds
‘Diamonds are a girl's best friend’- Marilyn Moore
Taking care of your diamonds is important to ensure they shine bright. Lack of cleaning can cause discolouration and degradation. Diamonds are very hard and resistant to damage. However everyday wear and tear can take a toll on your diamonds. Ordinary wear, including the use of hand lotions and hair care products can all cause build up that will leave your diamond with a hazy film. This build up will eventually make your diamond look dull. To keep your diamonds looking their best, they require proper love and care.
To maintain the brilliance of your diamond at home use warm water and a cleaning solution. Gently scrub your diamond with a soft bristle toothbrush to loosen dirt. Be careful not to starch the metal your diamond is set in. There is a myth that soaking your diamond in vodka can also clean it up very well.
It is important to visit a professional Jeweller every six months to a year to have your mounting checked and tightened. They are also able to use an ultrasonic cleaner to clean your diamonds.
