Diamond Jewellery Care

Keep that 'wow factor' for longer!

We want your diamonds to be forever, as the saying goes!

 

Can you remember how good your diamond made you feel the first time it sparkled up at you? We hope so, because with the proper care your diamonds really can sparkle at you for a lifetime.

Although diamonds are the hardest known substances on earth, they can still be scratched or chipped by a hard knock, so you should give them special care when it comes to cleaning and storing them to maintain their brilliance and sparkle. So here are some tips that will help you preserve the life and beauty of your diamond:Single Halo Engagement Ring with Diamond set shoulders from Ace Jewellery, Leeds

~ One diamond can scratch another so it's best to store them separately. To help keep their lustre gently clean with a mild cleaning solution, rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a soft cloth.

~ Try not to wear your diamond when doing rough work, gardening, playing sports and that type of thing. Even though diamonds are durable, this type of activity can expose them to damage or discolouration.

~ When putting your diamonds in a jewellery box, try to store them individually in soft jewellery bag, as they can easily scratch each other as well as other softer jewellery.

~ Always remove diamond jewellery when using cleaning chemicals or when you go swimming. Bleach and chlorine won't harm the diamond, but they can pit or discolour gold and platinum mountings.

~ Hairspray, perfume, aftershave, make-up etc. should be applied before you put on your jewellery to minimize contact with them. Build up from such things can make your diamond appear dull.

~ The wonderful thing about diamonds is that they never ever lose their beauty and brilliance once they're cut. You simply have to keep them clean to keep that look that you had the day you bought them.

~ Cleaning is simple; to help keep their lustre, gently clean your diamonds with a mild cleaning solution (heavily diluted washing up liquid is ideal), rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a soft cloth.

Nothing like a regular check-up!

We recommend that you bring your diamonds in for a check-up and a professional cleaning once a year

Our working jewellers can especially detect flaws or other problems that you may have not noticed before, such as a build up of dirt that may lead to discolouring.

Likewise, it is important to have the claws that hold your diamonds in place checked, to make sure they are not loose, otherwise you could lose your diamond without even knowing it.
