“The safest way to clean your diamond jewelry is to bring it to your trusted jewelers. Experts will ensure they restore your ring’s shine and luster back to how it was at the time of purchase,” advises Wael Gabr, Head of Quality Control at Damas. In between trips to the jeweler, however, there are a few super-simple things you can do to ensure your diamonds stay as sparkly as possible, forever. Read on for five quick and easy tips on how to take proper care of your precious pieces, courtesy of master of diamonds Damas.

1

Remember to handle diamonds sparingly as these stones are natural magnets for grease, making it difficult to keep them sparkling clean at all times.

2

Soak diamond-studded jewelry in a mixture of warm water and regular dishwashing liquid for at least 30 minutes before softly brushing the dirt off with a soft-bristled toothbrush.

It is not advisable to clean diamonds with ammonia-based household cleaners or cleaning acids as the chemicals can harm both your skin and metals like gold.

4

Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to use baking soda or toothpaste as this will result in minute scratches on the metal of your ring.

5

Fragile settings and estate jewelry should be cleaned with water and wiped with a soft, lint-free cloth. Intricate pieces should also be kept away from ultrasonic jewelry-cleaning devices.
