Although diamonds are one of the hardest substances known to man and are very difficult to damage, this does not make them indestructible. Diamonds can be damaged if they are put under too much force or very high impact.
It's important to choose a protective setting for your diamond in order to prevent any breaks or chips. This is especially important for diamonds with sharp corners, such as pear shapes or princess cuts.
It is generally a good idea to remove any diamond rings whilst doing manual chores, such as gardening and doing the dishes, as there is a chance that this could damage your setting.
Cleaning Your Diamond
We recommend regularly cleaning your diamond jewellery in order for your diamond to sparkle and look its best at all times.
Here are a few simple steps which we recommend to you do weekly in order to keep your diamond looking its best:
1. Place your diamond ring on the end of a spoon and place the spoon in a mug or heat proof container.
2. Add some liquid dish-washing detergent to the heat-proof container.
3. Boil the kettle and pour the boiling water into the heat proof container over your ring.
4. Mix the solution a little and let it cool down before you remove your ring from the mug. Before the next step, please ensure that the solution is cool enough not to burn you.
5. Take your ring out of the heat-proof container using the end of the spoon and use a soft bristled toothbrush to scrub the diamond with the detergent solution. Make sure to scrub the areas at the back of the diamond, as this area can gather a lot of dirt and make your diamond look dull. You will not damage your diamond with a toothbrush so don't be afraid to give it a good scrub!
6. Empty the water and detergent solution from the mug and boil the kettle once again.
7. Put the ring back on the spoon and into the empty mug.
8. Once again pour boiling water over the ring in order to rinse of any dirt and detergent.
9. Once the ring is properly rinsed, dry it with a clean non-fiber cloth in order to polish away any water marks.
Storing Your Diamond Jewellery
Seeing as diamonds are such a hard substance, it can be easy for them to damage other pieces of jewellery. Therefore, the best way to store your jewellery is in its original box or in a soft cloth. This should prevent any dust from gathering on your jewellery, keeping it sparkling clean!
Insuring Your Diamond Jewellery
We strongly recommend insuring your diamond jewellery in order to prevent any disappointment in unforeseen circumstances.
