Diamond Care

How to clean your diamond?

Like any other substance, your diamond is expected to accumulate dirt or oil in the long run, blocking the light interactions in the stone. Wearing a dirty stone means you are not allowing the stone to live up to its full potential. Luckily, cleaning your ring is not an extensive process and you can do it at your home. All you need is a cup of warm water with a few drops of soap or mild dishwashing detergent. Let your diamond stay there for a good 30 minutes, then gently scrub the stone with a soft-bristled brush, maybe, a baby toothbrush. Rinse and pat dry using a soft cotton cloth. Avoid using paper towels for drying the stone, as they can scratch the metal. Also, stay away from drains as you’re cleaning the diamond. Don’t use any harsh chemicals or moisturizers to clean your ring.

For that added shine, you can soak your wedding ring or engagement ring in window cleaner after cleaning it in a mild soap solution. Remember not to soak the ring more than a minute since window cleaners contain some hard chemicals. To make sure you rinsed all the windows cleaning liquid off your ring, wash it with the same mild soap water and later warm water before drying it.

Use a toothpick to remove the dirt that gets accumulated between the diamond and the prongs. However, be extra careful not to scratch the metal. Use tweezers to remove small pieces of cloth fibres that get stuck within the setting, again, be careful of the metal.

Ionic cleaners are used in cleaning the diamonds. However, avoid this method if your wedding ring or engagement ring is set with stones other than diamonds.  The electrical current during the ionic cleaning process can have an adverse effect on certain gemstones. 

A diamond can only be scared by another diamond. So make sure you don’t store two diamonds together or with any other metal, as your diamond can scratch your other jewellery.
