Diamond Jewellery Maintenance

Diamond jewellery is not only a symbol of timeless beauty and sophistication but also a cherished investment that deserves proper care and maintenance to preserve its brilliance for generations to come. At CTJ, we understand the importance of caring for your precious diamonds to ensure they remain as dazzling as the day you first laid eyes on them. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the essential tips and techniques for diamond jewellery maintenance, empowering you to protect and prolong the beauty of your treasured pieces.

  1. Regular Cleaning: Regular cleaning is essential for keeping your diamond jewellery looking its best. Over time, oils, lotions, and everyday grime can dull the sparkle of your diamonds, diminishing their brilliance and lustre. To clean your diamond jewellery at home, simply soak it in a solution of warm water and mild dish soap for 15-20 minutes, then gently scrub with a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any residue. Rinse thoroughly under running water and pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the metal settings and affect the brilliance of your diamonds.
  2. Professional Inspection: In addition to regular cleaning, it’s essential to have your diamond jewellery professionally inspected and serviced periodically to ensure its long-term durability and beauty. At CTJ, our team of experienced jewellers and gemologists offer comprehensive inspection and maintenance services to assess the condition of your jewellery, identify any potential issues, and address them promptly. From checking the security of the settings to inspecting the integrity of the metal, our professionals provide expert care and attention to ensure your diamond jewellery remains in pristine condition for years to come.
  3. Proper Storage: Proper storage is key to preserving the beauty and longevity of your diamond jewellery. When not being worn, store your pieces in a clean, dry, and secure place, such as a jewellery box or pouch, to protect them from dust, moisture, and scratches. To prevent tangling and damage, store each piece of jewellery separately, ideally in soft pouches or compartments lined with fabric. Avoid storing your diamond jewellery in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures, as prolonged exposure can cause damage to the metal and affect the brilliance of your diamonds over time.
  4. Gentle Handling: Diamonds may be one of the hardest substances on Earth, but they are not indestructible. To prevent chips, scratches, or other damage, handle your diamond jewellery with care and avoid exposing it to rough or abrasive surfaces. When putting on or removing your jewellery, take care to do so over a soft surface to cushion any accidental drops. Avoid wearing your diamond jewellery during activities that may expose it to chemicals, such as swimming or household chores, as these can cause damage to the metal and affect the brilliance of your diamonds.
