Care of Diamond
CARE OF DIAMONDS
- While diamonds are extremely hard, they can still suffer chips and fractures from sharp blows (especially those with feather at the edge).
- It is possible to scratch a diamond with a diamond, so do take care when wearing and storing your diamond jewelry.
- As with all fine things in life, you should take care to protect your jewelry and always store in a jewelry box, taking care to store diamonds separate from each other.
- Chlorine bleach, a common household liquid, or chlorinated pool can pit gold alloy. If an alloy becomes pitted, it weakens, making gemstone loss possible.
- A prolonged sessions in the ultrasonic cleaner might damage the filling of those fracture-filled diamond ( special care is needed for lower clarity stones, i.e. I1, I2 or those that have long feather)
Correct way of cleaning your diamonds:
- Clean your diamonds with warm soapy liquid and a soft toothbrush, rinsing the stone and setting afterwards to ensure no soapy residue.
