Cleaning your diamond is important


Diamonds are natural magnets for fat

When a diamond is touched, the oils from your fingers will stick to the surface of the diamond, affecting its brilliance and fire. By keeping your diamond clean, you are helping to maintain its brilliance.

Recommendation cleaning

Clean your diamond regularly

  • Fuel spirit (colorless) → for inserting and for diamond & jewelry surfaces
  • Boiling hot water + a little soap + very fine new toothbrush

Methylated spirits (colorless)

Colorless fuel is ideal for cleaning diamond jewelry (platinum & 18 carat gold). Because fuel is highly degreasing, it ideally dissolves grease, hand creams and dirt. In addition, it evaporates with practically no residue and displaces water.

You can simply put your diamond jewelry in a bowl with fuel, if necessary, gently clean the surfaces and spaces (e.g. with a new fine toothbrush) and put the jewelry in for a while. Then dry on a piece of paper or cloth.

In addition, you can quickly, easily and simply clean a grease-stained diamond and jewelry surface with a paper or cloth cloth soaked in fuel.

ATTENTION: is not suitable for other gemstones as these do not have the same hardness as diamonds and are often porous and sometimes contain oil as a component! Caution should also be exercised with metals that are not platinum or are less than 18 carat gold.

Hot water & detergent

A simple plan to keep your diamond jewelry beautiful is to soak it in a gentle degreasing solution, such as water, with a few drops of mild dish soap. After removing the diamond from the cleaning solution, use a soft, clean toothbrush to remove any remaining dirt. The toothbrush should be new and used solely for cleaning your jewelry. Use them to clean hard-to-reach areas like the back of the diamond, where the most oil and dirt will accumulate.

Vinegar & salt?

Vinegar & Salt is no problem at all for your diamond, which is the hardest and most resistant material (→ crystallized carbon). You can do it, but cleaning is not always that effective with it.

Professional cleaning?

Sometimes an ultrasonic cleaner is necessary to remove encrusted dirt on diamonds. A professional cleaning with ultra-sonic or an evaporation device combined with checking the «prongs» is a good idea.
