Diamond Jewelry Care
Is Diamond Jewelry Safe for Normal Wear?
There's a reason diamonds are the favorite stone for engagement rings. Because diamonds are the hardest of the gemstones and resistant to the type of heat, light, and chemical exposure typical in daily life, diamond jewelry is perfect for everyday wear. However, it is important to be cautious about the prongs and settings of your diamond jewelry. Harsh chemicals might not harm your diamond, but can cause damage to the metal around the stone. To protect your diamond jewelry investment, make sure you are adhering to a regular checkup schedule at your local KAY.
How to Clean Diamond Jewelry
For regular cleaning, simply wiping down diamond jewelry with a polishing cloth. Diamonds are prone to picking up grease, muting their brilliance. A little soak in KAY's fine jewelry cleaner is an effective regular cleaning method. A soft bristled brush can be used to gently remove dirt, especially around the setting.
Other Ways to Clean Diamond Jewelry
Ultrasonic and steam cleaners won't harm a diamond, but using them can loosen the diamond's setting, increasing the chances you will lose your precious gemstones. Speak to a KAY associate if you are unsure and take advantage of KAY's free jewelry cleaning services.
How to Store Diamond Jewelry
Because of the hardness and durability of diamonds, it's recommended to store your diamond jewelry separately from other jewelry to avoid scratching softer gemstones. You can also wrap diamond jewelry in a soft cloth to prevent any potential damage.
