BRILLIANT TIPS FOR DIAMOND CARE
Take Care of Your Diamond Cleaning
No need to bring your diamonds in for cleaning – here are the DIY methods to keep your diamond engagement ring and diamond jewelry looking just like new:
1. Soak and Scrub
Everyone can use a good bubble bath, and your jewelry is no exception! Take care of your diamond rings and jewelry with a little TLC, making sure no gems come loose.
Soak your jewelry in a solution of mild dish soap and warm water for a few minutes. Afterward, carefully scrub the metal using a soft cloth, cotton swab, or gentle toothbrush, then rinse.
2. Get Intense Shine
For extra shine in your yellow gold, rose gold ring, or platinum jewelry, you can follow up the mild dish soap soak with window cleaner. Do not use window cleaner with white gold – the rhodium plating won’t be able to handle such harsh chemicals. Limit this soak to one minute at a time.
After the window cleaner, dip your ring into the mild dish soap solution, rinse it with warm water, then dry it completely.
3. Shield the Shade
You can use ionic cleaners to clean most diamond jewelry, but the electrical current may mess with the hue of certain gemstones. Consider other cleaning methods for colorful gemstone engagement rings and gemstone jewelry
Take Care of Your Diamond Insurance
1. Insure Your Diamond Jewelry
Better sparkly and safe than sorry! It might feel weird to prep for the worst when you’re still perfecting the filter on your ring selfie, but trust us – make sure to insure your jewelry right away in case it gets lost or stolen. Find out how much your homeowner’s and renter’s policies cover, then look into additional policies like Jewelers Mutual.
2. Choose the Right Policy
Make sure you know what you’re getting into! Here are some good questions to ask while you’re researching diamond jewelry insurance policies:
- Do they offer a deductible or discount if you have a home security system?
- Does the policy cover you fully if the item is damaged or lost overseas?
- Is the diamond jewelry covered at the full replacement cost, and will they give you a cash settlement or a replacement item?
- Which appraisal reports does the insurance company accept, and how often do you need to provide them?
There’s more to taking care of your diamond jewelry, including when to wear your diamonds and where to store them. Read on!
