Cleaning a diamond ring in soapy water with a toothbrush.

Regularly clean your natural diamonds to remove dirt, oil, and other debris that may accumulate on the surface. You can use a mild dish detergent mixed with warm water and a soft brush, such as a soft bristled toothbrush, to gently scrub the diamond.

Be sure to rinse it thoroughly with clean water and pat it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. You can go further with some jewelry cleaning equipment, read Spic n’ Span Sparkle.

Swimming with diamonds

Avoid exposing your natural diamonds to harsh chemicals, such as chlorine, bleach, and other abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the diamond’s surface and setting. It’s best to remove your diamond jewelry when using cleaning chemicals or swimming in chlorinated water.

Always handle your natural diamonds with clean hands and avoid touching the diamond with your fingers, as the natural oils from your skin can leave residue on the diamond’s surface. When handling diamond jewelry, hold it by the metal setting or the edges to avoid putting pressure on the diamond itself.

Jewelry box with many compartments

We wish we could wear it all – all the time, but that isn’t realistic. When you’re not wearing your diamond jewelry, store them properly to prevent scratching or damage. Ideally, store your diamonds separately in a soft pouch or a jewelry box with individual compartments to avoid them rubbing against each other or other jewelry pieces.
