How to Take Care of Your Diamond Jewelry

February 22nd, 2012 Jewelry

Even though diamonds are the hardest substance in the world, they aren't impervious to harm. If you're not careful with your jewelry, it may start to degrade before you know it. However, proper care isn't too hard to figure out - you just have to apply a bit of common sense. If you've recently come into diamond jewelry of your own, here are a few ways to ensure that your pieces stay in good condition for years to come.

1. Storage. The only thing that can scratch a diamond is another diamond. This means that you should avoid storing your jewelry in the same place. Ideally, you can get your hands on a fabric-lined box with separate compartments. This is a great way to keep your pieces safe and stored in an easily-accessed space.

2. Cleaning. To clean your diamonds, start by making a mixture of warm water and a mild detergent. Place them in the bowl for a few minutes, remove and then clean them slowly and methodically with a soft brush. Use a simple strainer to rinse them off afterwards.

3. General care. There are a few things you should avoid doing with your diamond jewelry. For one, make sure you remove it before doing any rough work with your hands. Though your diamonds may not get scratched, they can still get smudged and dirty like anything else. You also want to stay away from bleach while wearing your diamonds, as this can discolor them. Finally, try to see a professional jeweler at least once a year to find out if there are any small touch-ups that he can perform to keep your diamonds looking their best.
