That first dazzling sparkle caught your eye and you fell in love with your new diamond. Dust, dirt, hand lotion, and time can dull your diamond. A simple cleaning will bring back that shine.
Regular cleanings also serve the purpose of checking your jewelry for damage and ensuring your precious stones are secure and safe. Cleaning it yourself is good for a touchup between professional cleanings if it is done right. Here are some tips you should follow to keep your rings sparkling and safe.
What should I have cleaned?
Of course, the simple answer is everything in your jewelry box from your rings and necklaces to bracelets and watches. The most overlooked piece in your collection is your engagement ring because it is virtually with you every second of the day. It’s the most prized piece in your collection. The everyday grim from sweat, dirt, and dead skin often fogs the clarity of the diamond. If you’re celebrating your 25th anniversary, that’s a lot of wear and tear.
How often do i go in for a cleaning?
We recommend professional cleaning every six months. This keeps your jewelry shining like new. Regular cleaning by a certified gemologist ensures your jewelry is inspected for loose diamonds, worn prongs, and other signs of needed repair granting the stone won’t fall out.
Should I do it myself?
In between professional cleanings, you may want to give your rings a light cleaning. Be careful. The biggest mistake people make with DIY cleaning is using acidic solutions. These can damage metals and even dull some gemstones. A touch up with a soft cleanser like dish soap is a safe method.
Keep that jewelry beautiful and safe with regular professional cleanings. Come into the shop anytime and let our certified gemologist, Brendon Padilla take care of your precious jewelry.
