Caring for Your Jewelry

Diamonds are the hardest known natural substances on Earth, and with the proper care, they can last lifetimes and can be handed down as heirlooms to future generations without losing any luster. Even though a diamond is extreamely tough, it can still break! If struck hard enough from the perfect angle, a diamond can crack, chip and even shatter!  Also, remember diamonds are an investment. Take care of them. Do not wear them when doing certain activities - such as playing sports, gardening, etc. We highly recommend at least once annually, you should bring or send in your jewelry to us so we can inspect and clean it for you. During this time, we will inspect and look for any signs of a damage and wear that can lead to losing a stone. We will also ensure that the prongs are properly securing the stone and will remove any dirt and debris.

When at home, follow these simple tips to protect your diamond jewelry against future dirt and damage:

Keeping Your Diamonds Clean

  • Seek a professional cleaning at least two times a year, and have rings and bracelets checked for loose or bent prongs and wear.
  • Between professional cleaning visits, clean diamonds with a mixture of mild liquid detergent and water. Apply mixture with a soft, natural bristle toothbrush; rinse with fresh water; and dry with a soft cloth provided with every purchase.
  • Avoid cleaning your jewelry in or near the sink. If you do, make sure the plug is in.
  • Wait 10-15 minutes before putting your rings on after applying hand lotion, and avoid all contact with chlorine bleach or other chemicals that can pit or discolor the mounting.

 

Keeping Your Diamonds Scratch-Free

  • Be sure to separate diamond jewelry in your jewelry box with dividers, or store in fabric-lined pouches, etc. Diamonds can scratch other diamonds, as well as other gems or jewelry, especially soft items like pearls.
  • Remove diamond jewelry prior to doing strenuous or dirty work. Even though a diamond is extremely durable, it can be chipped by a hard blow, or a setting can become loose during rigorous activity.
