How to Keep Your Diamonds Glistening

Do you over-wear your diamond jewelry and now it has lost that brand new glisten? There are so many easy at-home remedies to keep your ring from losing its ultimate beauty. There are three main safe treatments we have listed below to bring that brilliance back to your diamond!Diamond Ring

Liquid Detergent: The first thing is a super easy home remedy that can be done in a matter of 10 minutes! First you are going to take a mild liquid laundry or dish detergent. Dilute it in a bowl of warm water. Make sure the solution is soapy, but not to the point where you can’t tell you added water! After this step, go ahead and add your piece of jewelry to the mix. Let it sit for approximately 3 to 4 minutes. After the time has elapsed rinse your jewelry in clean water for about a minute and bam! Clean, perfect and shiny jewelry!

Ammonia Solution: If the liquid detergent mix isn’t a strong enough suit for your jewelry, go ahead and try this really tough on dirt solution. Ammonia is known to clean almost anything and keep it in pristine shape. Before you start you MUST have a pair of rubber gloves. If this stuff gets on your body you can be in a lot of trouble! After you have taken the appropriate safety measures, go ahead and fill up a bowl with 1 cup of warm water. Then take 1/4 a cup of ammonia. Mix this solution and add your piece of jewelry. An important thing to keep in mind is anything other than a ruby, diamond or sapphire will get ruined in the ammonia solution. Wait 20 minutes to take your jewelry out of the mixture and then while still wearing your rubber gloves put your jewelry in another mix of soap and water. (the soap water should be foamy). The next step is to scrub your jewelry with a clean toothbrush and then rinse the piece with clean water. Dry it on a soft cloth and your piece of jewelry should look fantastic!

Steam: If you have a personal jewelry cleaner definitely use that, but many people don’t know that if you go to a jewelry store where you purchased your product they will steam it for free! This process takes a whole 2 minutes to do and you will literally be in and out of the store. This is the best way to get rid of lotions, dry skin, dirt, etc. The pressure of the steam pushes out all the scum quickly and efficiently. Call your jeweler previous to walking in and ask them if steaming is complimentary. The most they will charge you is $10. Anything more just walk out and go somewhere else.
