Caring for your diamond or jewelry While diamonds are the hardest minerals, they do require some care to keep them looking their best. The brilliance of a diamond depends on the amount of light entering the stone and reflecting back to the human eye. That is why any grease or smudge can leave the diamond dull. Three ways to clean your diamond jewelry is as follows: Water and mild liquid detergent - mix small amount of detergent with mild water and soak for a few minutes. Use a soft bristle brush and lightly brush the jewelry. Rinse in clear water, shake to remove water and dry with a soft cloth. Liquid Jewelry Cleaner - there are different brands available at jewelry stores or supermarkets. Read the label carefully for the type that is best for the kind of stones and metals in your jewelry. Ultrasonic Cleaner - there are many types available to the public. A high frequency vibration is created when the machine is turned on and in conjunction with water and detergent loosens the material on the jewelry. Allow app. 5 minutes. Remove the jewelry and rinse with clear water. Dry with a soft cloth. Some gemstones should not be placed in the ultrasonic machine. Some are emeralds, opals, jade, lapis, color and pearls. Check the manufacturer's instructions and warnings. When storing your jewelry be sure to wrap each piece in tissue paper and store in jewelry box our cloth pouch.
