Diamonds are one of the hardest substances on earth and are uniquely resistant to damage by heat or scratching. That said, diamonds are not indestructible. They can break and are especially vulnerable at the girdle. Having diamonds set in a relatively protective setting, can help keep them safe.
When wearing your diamond, you should be conscious of it on your finger, removing it when doing any type of activity that might expose it to a rough impact or a hard blow. For example, this might include gardening, doing dishes, exercising, etc.
Cleaning & Servicing Your Diamond
During everyday activities, your diamond will be exposed to dirt, dust, perspiration, makeup, skin oil and creams, as well as to house cleaning products. Over time this will build up on your diamond making it dull and take its natural beauty.
Luckily cleaning diamond is easy and requires little time. To clean your diamond jewelry you can simply take a toothbrush and deep in a solution of dish soap and water and clean it for a quick cleaning.
We recommend that you have it professionally clean at least once every six months. The professional jeweler will check the setting, and deep clean so it will leave your diamond brand new and making sure that you won’t lose it by tightening the prongs if necessary.
Storing Your Diamond Jewelry
Because of their hardness, diamonds can scratch other diamonds, gemstones, and jewelry metals. In order for this not to happen, store all jewelry, especially diamond jewelry in individual soft cloth pouches when not in use.
Insuring Your Diamonds
Because unforeseen accidents do happen, we strongly recommend that you insure all your diamond jewelry against loss, theft or damage.
