Caring for your Diamond
When wearing your diamond it is very important that you are mindful of its care. Though diamonds are very durable, a hard blow could chip the stone. We recommend that you avoid wearing your diamond while doing housework, yard work, or any other rough work, including some sports. Also, avoid allowing your diamond to come into contact with bleach (and other harsh cleansers), or hairspray & cosmetics, which can cause buildup that dulls the surface of the diamond. If you notice that one of the stones in your setting is loose, discontinue wearing it. Take it to a professional jeweler for repair.
Storing your Diamond
When not wearing your diamond, we recommend that you store it in a fabric-lined case with dividers to separate your various pieces of jewelry, or a soft cloth pouch. This will help prevent your diamonds from scratching each other or your other pieces of jewelry.
Cleaning your Diamond
Over time a film may develop over your jewelry. The oils in your skin, the beauty products you use, even household cleaners, can cause this buildup. By periodically cleaning your jewelry, you will be able to maximize it's brilliance and its beauty.
We suggest a cleaning solution of one part ammonia to six parts water or a mild diluted detergent. Gently scrub the diamond and its setting with a soft-bristle brush, taking care not to scratch the metal of the setting. This periodic cleaning should greatly increase the brilliance of your diamond. However, we do recommend that you take your diamond into a professional jeweler once a year to have it cleaned and to have the security of its setting inspected. We also sell ultrasonic jewelry cleaners for diamond, gold and platinum jewelry. Most gemstones and all pearl jewelry should not be placed in an ultrasonic cleaner.
