What is the best way to clean my diamond jewelry?


Proper maintenance of your diamond jewelry is easy and important.  Diamonds should be cleaned regularly to insure that they perform at their peak and deliver maximum fire and brilliance.  Even the best diamonds will suffer from the buildup of film that is an inevitable product of everyday life.  


We recommend a weekly soak in a cleaning solution, accompanied by gentle brushing and a rinse with clean water.  If you don't have a pre-made soaking solution you can easily make one by combining 1/3 household ammonia with 2/3 warm water.


Let the jewelry soak for at least 30 minutes- longer if you haven't done it in a while. Then take a fine bristle brush (you can find really good ones at the art supply store) and gently brush the piece, giving particular attention to the underside of the feature diamond.  Then rinse and allow to dry.


The ammonia and water solution will not damage fine jewelry set with diamonds or (most) precious stones.  However, costume jewelry or jewelry that may contain glue should never be soaked. Organic gemstones such as pearls or amber, or semi porous gemstones like turquoise also should not ever be soaked.


Regular attention not only will keep your diamonds and precious metals gleaming brilliantly, but also gives you the chance to inspect the piece for any issues such as lifted prongs or loose stones, before they become a problem.  Annual inspection and cleaning by a professional is also highly recommended.
