During the course of wearing diamond jewelry, the diamonds will lose brilliance and shine. When we wear them, they get smudged or soiled. Even when not wearing them, they tend to collect dust. The use of lotions, soaps, fragrances and, even our natural skin oils, can cause diamond jewelry to become filmy and grimy, minimizing their true brilliance. Get back that brilliance and shine by learning how to clean diamond jewelry. All it takes is a few minutes and a little care to restore your diamonds to their full luster.
Before cleaning diamond jewelry, gather up your materials. You will need a small soft brush, such as an eyebrow or lipstick brush, soap/detergent,water, strainer, lint free cloth and a small bowl. Make a warm sudsy water solution in the bowl using the soap/detergent and water. Then, place your diamond jewelry into the solution. Proceed to brush the diamonds as they sit in the soapy solution. After cleaning, rinse the jewelry underneath cool water using a small strainer. Finally, use a lint free or a jewelry polish cloth, to dry and shine your diamonds..
If your diamond jewelry needs a stronger cleaning, the use of ammonia and water may suffice. Using a small half and half solution of ammonia and water, soak your diamond jewelry for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove them from the solution and gently brush each item accordingly. After brushing the item, return it to the bowl. Repeat for the next jewelry item. After all the items have been cleaned and returned to the solution, swish them around for a few seconds then remove them. Proceed to rinse and dry as outlined in the previous paragraph. An alternative to mixing solutions yourself to clean your jewelry, is to purchase an already made jewelry cleaning solution. This could be in the form of a solution kit or a machine, designed to clean jewelry.
