  • 4 Tips to Keep Your Diamond Sparkling

    June 14, 2016

    Diamond is the hardest known natural substance on earth. Since many diamonds formed under the earth’s substance for millions (or even billions of years), it only makes sense that the gem is so incredibly durable. For a substance so hard that it can cut glass, rock or metal, you would think that taking care of it would be a snap—wouldn’t you? While it’s hard to scratch a diamond and might be nearly impossible for you to accidentally break it, it is not hard to wind up with a diamond that is clouded or that appears dirty.

    Luckily, it doesn’t take much effort to get that diamond sparkling again. There are many commercial products available to clean your diamond, but you don’t need any one particular magic potion. We have put together four simple tips to help get your diamond sparkling once more.

    Clean it Regularly

    In most cases, simple cleaning is all it will take to bring your dull diamond back to sparkling again. Regularly cleaning your diamond, with a simple solution of warm water and a couple of drops of mild dish soap, will remove the oils from the stone. You may be able to remove much of the oil using only a soft cloth, but a gentle brushing with a toothbrush or Q-tip can help you with difficult to reach spots. Make sure you use a brand new brush that you use only for your diamond, for the best results.

    Rinse it Well

    After you clean your ring, or if you wash your hands with soap, make sure you rinse the stone well. If you leave soap to dry on the stone, it can lead to a dull, even clouded appearance. Take a few extra seconds and buff it dry with a soft cloth too. Not only will that help your stone look its best, but it will add life to the metal on the ring (or necklace, earring or other piece) as well.

    Use Cleaners with Caution

    Ultrasonic cleaners may state that they are safe for use with diamonds, but if you choose to utilize one make sure you use it carefully. The vibrational movement that helps dislodge dirt and grime can also loosen your prongs and your gem. If you do decide to utilize this gadget, read the instruction manual carefully and try not to overdo it. The machine is not doing anything that you cannot do yourself with a little time and effort.

    Talk to a Professional

    Every diamond is different. It is important to treat your gem with care and if you want your stone to look its best you will have to polish and shine each and every facet. A professional can give you advice that is geared specifically for your stone and its setting too. The advice given from someone who understands gemstones can help your diamond look beautiful today—and for years to come. After all, when you invest in a piece of diamond jewelry, it should be something that you can enjoy for a lifetime.
