Diamonds are beautiful, expensive, and considered very valuable due to their strength and beauty. People that own and wear diamond jewellery are proud of it and generally hold onto these pieces for their entire lives. In many cases, diamond jewellery is passed on to other family members for many generations. This kind of jewellery is generally purchased as a gift for a special occasion. For all these reasons, it is important to take good care of your jewellery to ensure that it lasts for many years. Unfortunately, most people do not know how to take care of this jewellery, and after a few years of neglect, rings, necklaces, and bracelets can lose their initial brilliance. Below are some tips that you can use to ensure that your diamond jewellery continues to retain its beauty for many more years.
Protect Your Jewellery When You Are Not Wearing It
While diamonds themselves are extremely hard, making them very difficult to scratch, crack or otherwise damage, certain habits can create problems. If you have several pieces of diamond jewellery, you are going to want to keep them in separate boxes. Use your ring boxes to store your rings when you are not wearing them. This will prevent the diamonds from scratching your other jewellery. The rings themselves can easily become scratched through normal wear and through improper storage, and metal is much easier to scratch or dent, so it is important to store your jewellery properly.
Have Your Rings Professionally Maintained
Professional maintenance is key if you want your jewellery to continue shining. First of all, the diamond mounts themselves may need adjusting every couple of years or every few months. People lose diamonds every day due to loose mounts. Mounts become lose over time for many reasons. Accidentally hitting your hand against the wall while wearing the ring can cause the mount to deform slightly, and eventually this could result in a diamond being lost.
Professional cleaning is also very important. If a diamond has become scratched, an experienced professional can easily restore the diamond to its original glory. The metal rings typically become scratched, dented, and dull after a few months of being worn. Professional cleaning at Diamond Geezer Jewellery is inexpensive and will instantly restore your ring to its former glory.
If you want to do what you can to maintain your rings at home, this is possible, but keep in mind that you will not be able to get the results you will find after a professional cleaning. It is very important that you stay away from harsh chemicals or cleaning utensils. It is generally recommended that you use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a mild soap. Mix your soap with warm water and gently rub the ring and the diamond for a few moments. Dry the jewellery with a soft cloth to eliminate the build-up of water spots. Using these tips, you should easily be able to preserve and maintain your jewellery so that it lasts for a very long time.
