Never wear your diamond jewelry when doing rough work, So here are some quick tips on how to clean a diamond to ensure yours never look lackluster:


Tips on Caring for Your Diamonds


  1. Always remove diamond jewelry before taking a shower: Soap can quickly cause a layer of film and further build-up to occur, dulling diamonds over time.

  2. Use a soft toothbrush to clean your diamond:  Remove from the cleaner and brush it with a soft, clean toothbrush to remove any leftover dirt. Take extra care to brush the back of the diamond as this will be the area that has collected the most oil and dirt.
  3. Remove diamond jewelry when applying creams: Avoid wearing jewelry while applying the cream to ensure it doesn’t get behind the diamonds or between the prongs, causing a build-up and dullness. 
  4. Don’t use harmful infection: Chlorine or abrasives should never be used when cleaning diamonds, especially those set in jewelry. These erode some of the metals often used in diamond settings and may loosen prongs, or even dissolve the metal completely.
  5. Be cautious with an ultrasonic cleaner: While these devices are excellent at removing dirt and grime build up on diamonds, the vibrating fluid they create can also cause diamonds to move and loosen in their clasps.
