Diamond jewellery is most popular jewellery from ancient age. It’s been used as engagement and wedding rings and is often worn 24 hours a day. Even though you may wear your diamond jewellery around the clock, you should give thought to its care.
Diamonds are durable, but still they require proper maintenance. Diamonds can get smudged, soiled and dusty. Lotions, powders, soaps, even natural skin oils, put a film on diamonds and cut down their brilliance. Clean diamonds “glow well” they absorb maximum light reflects with fiery brilliance. Never wear diamond jewellery, especially rings, during hard work. Even though diamond is one of the hardest materials in nature, it can still be chipped by a sharp, sudden blow.
- Do not wear your diamond ring when you’re doing rough work. Even though a diamond is durable, a strong blow can still chip it.
- Don’t let your diamond come in contact with chlorine bleach when you’re doing household chores. It can damage and discolour the mounting.
- Clean your diamonds once in 6 months. In between, you can keep your diamond clean by lightly brushing it with an old toothbrush in a bowl of warm, mild soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a soft cloth.
- Store your diamond jewellery separately because diamonds can scratch other jewellery or each other.
