Your diamond is rare and beautiful. It sparkles with fire, light, radiance and natural beauty. It will last you forever.

However, once it joins the stress and strain of your busy life, its natural beauty can quickly tarnish. Cosmetics, soap, dish water, and even the natural oils and salts in your skin will dull your diamonds and prevent their natural brilliance from shining through.

Therefore, all jewellery benefits from regular cleaning and maintenance. With a little care, it’s easy to keep it looking as beautiful as the day it was purchased.

We recommend that you use a soft cloth to polish your diamond once a week, helping keep its natural luster. And every two weeks, brush your jewellery gently using a soft toothbrush and some mild detergent dissolved in warm water. You may also soak it in alcohol (vodka or gin) with ice for 30 minutes. Either method will keep your diamond and jewellery clean and shining bright.

Always take extra care when wearing your jewelry in the bathroom or kitchen. If you knock your diamond or brush too vigorously when cleaning, the stone/s can come loose in its setting and you could risk losing it. We also recommend that you remove your jewellery before applying hand lotions, hairsprays or other cosmetics as their ingredients can damage the surface of the diamond. Always remove your jewellery before gardening or playing sports as these activities can damage the stone and its setting. Finally, we advise against swimming with your jewellery, especially in chlorinated pools that can bleach precious stones and metals.

Diamonds are the hardest substance on earth. Your diamond will scratch all other gemstones including rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and precious metals. For that reason, keep it in its original pouch or box. When traveling, use a jewellery box or roll with individual padded slots for rings, necklaces and bracelets. Many people ignore the benefits of insurance and the peace of mind that it brings. Being the victim of theft or loss of a precious object is unsettling. We can advise on how and with whom you should protect against this risk.
