Diamonds are extremely hard and resistant to damage. However, everyday wear can take a toll on your diamonds. Ordinary wear, including the use of hand lotions and hair care products and simple household work, can all cause buildup that can leave a hazy film on your diamond. This buildup will eventually cause your brilliant and gorgeous diamond to appear dull. To keep your diamonds looking their best, they require the proper attention and care.
Here are some pointers on how to keep your diamond ring looking as great as it did the day you received it:
CLEANING AND SECURITY
Everyday activity can cause the setting of your diamond to loosen. We suggest removing your engagement ring every evening and visually inspecting it for any bent or loosened prongs. It is important to visit a professional jeweler every six months to a year to have your mounting checked and tightened. During this time, the jeweler can also clean and polish your engagement ring setting to look brand new.
STORING YOUR RING
Though diamonds are the hardest substance known to man and extremely scratch resistant, another diamond can scratch it. It is important to store your jewelry separate from one another, most preferably in a fabric-lined case or box with dividers.
