Although the hardness of diamonds is extremely high, it cannot be ruled out that they will be scratched by other diamond accessories. To keep your diamonds in their best condition, try to avoid storing your jewelry in the same packaging with other jewelry pieces. We recommend wrapping each piece separately and storing it in a charm bag to avoid the risk of rubbing each other.
Keep Away from Corrosives/Chlorides
Wearing diamond jewelry while doing housework can expose to bleach or acid solutions, etc. Swimming can also expose your jewelry to chlorides in the pool. These chemicals weaken the metal and, in severe cases, can cause the diamond to fall off. Therefore, please try to keep the diamond jewelry away from all corrosive chemicals or chlorides to ensure that the diamond jewelry is set securely.
Use Skincare/Cosmetics with Care
Diamonds are highly lipophilic. So if you use skincare, cosmetics, lotions or perfume while wearing diamond jewelry, these products will easily make diamonds stained with grease. Over time, grease and dirt build up on the surface of the diamond, making it dull. In addition, finger grease is also easily stuck onto the diamond, affecting brilliance. It is recommended to avoid touching or playing with the diamond ring directly with your fingers.
Self Cleaning Regularly
To keep your diamond shining like new for a long time, regular cleaning is very important. Customers may purchase a jewelry cleaning solution and follow the instructions for easy and effective cleaning.
1) Put the diamond jewelry in diluted soap solution
2) Gently wipe the diamond and its setting with a soft brush, then rinse with clean water
3) Lastly, use a soft lint-free cloth to absorb the moisture on the surface
** Remember to secure the sink or use a basin to prevent jewelry from falling into the drain.
Cleaning Instruction Video:
Please note that some gemstones are not suitable for ultrasonic cleaning, such as cracked jade, emeralds, opals, etc. Because the ultrasonic machine may affect the post-treatment of the gemstone, and even crack the gemstone.
To clean these gems, simply wipe them with a soft, dry cloth. As for stains on precious metal surfaces, use a non-abrasive / lint-free cloth (such as eyeglasses cloth).
