20 Nov How To Care For Your Diamonds?
Most of us consider our engagement and wedding rings as our most prized possessions; and most of these rings hold one or more diamonds. This makes it very important to take care of the diamonds held in the ring, because the ring would be of no value if even one tiny diamond falls off or gets stained. Understanding this, you may be taking care of your diamonds for sure, but are you sure you’re doing it the right way?
You may be taking it off before bathing, you may be removing it before going to bed, you may be cleaning your ring with soapy water. But, are all of these the right practices? Or, are they actually needed? Let’s help you know certain things you need to do when you want to care for and clean your diamonds.
Cleaning your diamonds
Diamonds can accumulate dirt and oil over time, blocking the light interactions in the stone, thus making it look dirty. You thus need to keep cleaning your diamonds from time to time. You can easily clean your diamonds at home (unless it has been in your drawer for years accumulating dirt!). All you need is a cup of warm water with a few drops of mild dishwashing detergent or soap. Soak the diamonds in the soapy water for a while, then gently scrub them with a soft-bristled brush, like a baby toothbrush. Then, rinse and pat dry the diamonds using a soft cotton cloth. Remember not to use any kind of harsh chemicals, moisturizers, paper napkins, or rough cloth while cleaning your diamonds.
Storing your diamonds
Just as much as it is important to clean your diamonds the right way, it is equally important to store it right too. You need to store your ring in a fabric-lined box, preferably the box that has been provided to you by the jeweller himself. If in any way you have lost the case, you can store your diamonds in any other clean fabric-lined box, so that it doesn’t get scratched. You must also have a ring-dish handy so that you can keep your diamonds in it when you take it off, before storing them away.
Getting professional assistance
As we mentioned above, if you have stored your diamonds away for years together without looking at them, it may need some outside help. Also, even generally, it is always advisable to take your diamond jewellery to a professional at least once a year to check for any loose prongs or worn mountings. And then, they may also clean the diamond properly for you.
So, while you can buy every diamond you like at Aura Jewels, one of the best diamond jewellery shops in Bangalore, all round the year, you must also take care of them, and take them once a year to have them thoroughly cleaned and checked professionally. In fact, we’ll say that you must take care of all kinds of jewellery perfectly well, whether it is diamonds, pearls, silver, or gold.
