Any lotions you wear as well as oil from your skin and the everyday dirt you come in contact with can make your diamonds look cloudy. It’s important to clean your diamonds to keep the sparkle alive. The best way to do this is to soak them in warm water with just a bit of mild dish soap. You should let it sit for about five minutes then use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub away any remaining grime. Rinse your diamond jewelry well with warm water and dry with a soft cloth and your sparkle should be back.

Prevention is also key. Remove your diamond jewelry before sports, gardening, handy work or other activities where it may pick up grime or receive damaged. Put your jewelry on last when you are getting ready in the morning to keep it free from make-up and hair product residue. You should also remove it before working with any chemicals. Keep your diamond jewelry safe and clean and you’ll enjoy it’s brilliance for years to come.
