How often do you loupe the diamonds you already own?

I would but I don't loupe mine because I have a nice microscope at work.
I use it about every other day.

I clean the stone a couple times a day with isopropyl alcohol and a tiny brush then use compressed nitrogen to blow the alcohol away.
It just takes 30 seconds and keeps it clean as new.

I use the microscope to see if there is any gunk building up that I didn't clean.
Also I check for looseness and chips.
So far so good.

I keep a loupe in the car and like to stop into pawn shops.
