Diamonds have been treasured for centuries for their exceptional beauty and durability. And they have been a symbol of love and commitment for decades now. We’ve all, at a point in time, wish to own a diamond for its brilliance and its symbolisation of love. But like anything that reminds us of love, diamonds should be cared for and protected too.
Diamonds, being the hardest substance known to us, can chip at the edges. They can also be affected by heat, chemicals, and everyday wear and tear. They can be stored in an air-tight box with cotton to protect them from scratch.
Also, an important thing to consider is that diamond rings or bangles should also not be worn when applying hairspray, creams or lotions. This can temporarily discolour the diamonds and make them lose their lustre. An important thing to consider is that while diamonds repel water, oils and grease can affect them.
So, how do we take care of diamonds? We got you covered with a detailed pointer for the same.
The most important thing to do is to store one’s diamond jewellery safely in a clean box. During the storage of diamond jewellery, it is advisable to keep it away from other jewellery. Not only can the exposed facets of one’s diamond jewellery scratch the metal surfaces of neighbouring jewellery pieces, but also other softer jewellery materials, such as gemstones and pearls, can get scratched by diamonds.
For the cleaning treatment, one can prepare a small bowl of warm water with a dash of dishwashing liquid and submerge one’s diamond jewellery for some minutes. If one notices some dirt accumulation that is not dissolving in the warm water on its own, one can use a small brush with soft bristles and remove the residue with a few gentle strokes. After the soap bath is completed, rinsing the jewellery under running water to remove the soap film completely is needed and one should dry the jewellery with a soft cloth.
