You might think that since diamond is the hardest substance available and since you have invested a lot in it, it is indestructible. But it is not. Although it can only be cut with another diamond, but it can get scratched or may even get chipped from a hard blow. Here are a few tips on how to take care of your diamond babies:
Storing your diamond jewelleries next to other jewellery pieces can cause scratches. Instead use fabric-lined jewellery case with separate compartments. If you choose to keep your jewellery pieces in the same box, wrap them up individually in soft tissue paper. You can also use jewellery pouches for each piece.
Regular inspection with a loupe is necessary to make sure that the setting is sure. You can also inspect gaps by using a pin. If there is any gap, don’t wear it. Take it to a professional jeweler. Your jeweler can also expertly clean your jewelleries.
Lotions, soaps, creams, skin oils, hairspray etc. alter the optical properties of diamonds, causing them to lose their brilliance and sparkle and look dull. To clean these deposits, you can make a solution of warm water with a few drops of ammonia and soak your diamond jewellery in this solution. Scrub the piece with a soft toothbrush. Rinse under running water and dry with a soft, lint free cloth. Be cautious while using ammonia. Prolonged or excessive use of ammonia can damage or discolor the metal.
Don’t wear your diamonds while doing rough work. It can get chipped.
Never let the diamond jewellery come in contact with chlorine or abrasives. The metal will get corroded and can also loosen the setting. Also don’t go swimming with your diamond on for the same reason.
To remove the encrusted dirt on diamonds, sometimes an ultrasound cleaner is necessary. These cleaners send high frequency sound waves through a detergent solution. The vibrating fluid removes all the accumulated dirt and grime. Don’t use this method on fragile settings as the vibration will shake loose stones from their mounting. This is best done by a professional jeweler.
Clean your diamond in a secure place. Don’t clean it on the rim of your sink. It may go down the drain.
Treat each piece as it were a family heirloom. Someday it might be that.
