How to Clean Diamond Jewelry Posted in: Discover
You have invested in the selection and purchase of your magnificent diamond jewelry, and you will probably want to enjoy it for many more years, and in order to do so, you have to take care of them.
It is true that diamond is the hardest natural material known to man, but they can certainly accumulate layers of dirt and fat on the surface, which dulls their brilliance and glamor.
Because of the shape of an engagement ring, which usually comes in a solitaire pattern and in cases where there are other diamonds scattered on the hoop, it tends to accumulate dirt.
Why jewelry get dirty
It is true that gold is not black, but white gold can wear out over time, and underneath it will reveal a color that looks like yellow gold. In fact, you notice white gold in its rough form after the rhodium coating has been removed over the years
Gold is not the strongest material in the world and tends to be scratched over the years. The higher the gold quality, the lower it will withstand scratching. An 18K gold gemstone is much more elaborate than a 14K gold jewelry Creams and liquids that “glue” dirt to the parts of the ring and around the diamond. Diamonds never change, but they can definitely get dirty and this strikes their shine significantly. Extensive use of creams is not recommended when wearing the ring because most of the cream will return to other parts of the ring and to be infected in the future.
Great Tips – How To Keep Your Jewelry
We’ve compiled a few tips for you to help keep your diamonds glowing and shiny for a long time.
It is important to clean the stone regularly. One way to do this is by placing the jewelry in a concentrated soap cleaner solution overnight. The next day clean the stone gently with a light brush and when finished wipe with a soft cloth. Be sure to reach all corners.
Antique jewelry may damage cleaning with a brush, so in such cases clean with a cloth only.
Another interesting method of cleaning is through ultrasonic cleaning. Ultra-sound waves pass through a soap solution that dissolves even the smallest and most durable grains of dirt. However, the movement generated by the frequencies may feed into the jewel, so it is important that this process be performed only by a professional jeweler.
Store jewelry separately so it doesn’t scratch other jewelry
When doing household tasks such as gardening and cleaning, be certain to remove rings.
Put your jewelry on only after washing and applying any makeup/hair spray.
Take off jewelry before swimming in a swimming pool. The chlorine can cause damage to various gemstones and gold.
Before doing high impact sports take off your jewelry as you may scratch the gold.

Not just cleaning and maintenance
Maintaining diamonds does not end with cleaning and maintaining them alone.
Avoid wearing diamond jewelry while doing household chores, strenuous activity or hard work that could damage a jewel or stone. Especially during dishwashing, which caused many people to lose their engagement rings.
Although we have already said, we will again emphasize. Do not use bleach, chlorine or any other harsh materials. If you clean and wear the ring, it will damage!
We recommend that you take your precious and precious jewelry for an annual check with the jeweler.
