Cleaning Diamonds For a quick cleaning, soaking your diamond ring in a warm solution of mild liquid detergent and water can be very effective. Also, a solution of one part ammonia and six parts water can be used to clean diamond jewelry at home, but only if the stone has not been fractured. If cleaning by hand, gently scrubbing your jewelry with a soft brush should loosen most dirt and greatly increase the brilliance of the diamond, but be careful not to scratch the metal of your setting. Once a year, it is best to have your diamond cleaned professionally and have the security of the setting checked.
Storing Diamond Jewelry We recommend that all diamond jewelry is stored individually in soft cloth pouches when not being worn to prevent the diamond or diamonds from scratching or dulling other jewelry. Lotions, soaps, makeup, hairspray, etc., can leave a residue on all your jewelry pieces. The film will make your gemstones and your gold look dull. In some instances, the products can actually damage your jewelry. It is best to leave your jewelry off while you are using any such products.
