How to Clean Your Diamond Jewelry

No matter how sparkly the diamond nor how shiny the metal, diamond jewelry gets dull and dirty after a while. Hand lotion tends to build up on rings and bracelets, while hair products tend to leave a dingy coating on diamond earrings. If not cleaned properly and regularly, the coating and residue can build up. This can eventually change the way the light reflects through the diamond or block it altogether, making your bling lose its zing.

Even though diamonds are one of the hardest elements on earth, harsh chemicals and abrasive substances can damage any coatings used to enhance the stone, or worse, do permanent damage to the gold, silver or platinum setting.

For jewelry that you wear every day, such as your wedding band, engagement ring or anniversary bracelet, give it a quick cleaning every few weeks to keep it sparkling and like new.

  1.  Make a cleaning solution using warm water and a few drops of a very mild dish soap. Let your diamond jewelry soak in the solution for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. If your jewelry needs more than a soak, use a very soft brush (a soft-bristled toothbrush works well) to clean any remaining residue.
  3. After brushing the jewelry, give it a brisk swish back through the soapy solution, and then rinse it thoroughly in warm water. To avoid discovering that your diamond earrings have gone down the drain, close the sink drain first, put the earrings in a strainer or colander to rinse or rinse them in a bowl of warm water.
  4. Use a lint-free cloth to dry and shine your jewelry.

If you’ve got a lot of black build-up on your diamond jewelry, use a dental Water Pik or wooden toothpick to get the last bits off. Remember that you can permanently scratch or damage the settings if you’re not careful, so be gentle. You can also take your diamonds to a jeweler who will be happy to professionally clean them for a fairly low price.

If your diamond jewelry also has other gemstones in the setting, be very careful as you clean it. Diamonds are very tough, but not all gemstones are and you risk permanently damaging them if you’re not careful.

To avoid nasty buildup on your diamond jewelry, remove all rings and bracelets before applying hand lotion, washing dishes or handling any cleaning solution that has chlorine. Remove your diamond earrings before you apply hair spray, and you’ll find that you can wait a little bit longer in between cleanings.

Insuring Diamond Earrings

Buying diamond earrings usually goes hand in hand with a significant spend – after all, diamonds don’t come cheap. If you’re on the cusp of buying a new pair, then it’s worth knowing what your options are regarding insurance cover. Unfortunately one size does not fit all and it’s always advisable to make sure that you’re fully covered in the event of an unfortunate loss.

Why Insure Your Jewelry?

Many people either don’t think it’s worth the hassle or don’t realize that certain possessions are not covered under a standard renters or home owners policy. As a typical piece of jewelry can run in to the many hundred, if not thousands of dollars, it’s the wise man (or woman) that takes care of their investment.

Accidents happen, losses do occur, and if there’s one thing that’s worse than the actual loss itself, it’s that moment of realization when you remember that your beautiful diamond drop earrings weren’t covered – and you can’t afford to replace them. Insuring them as soon as you’ve bought them (as with any precious item or possession) is the sensible and right thing to do.

Maybe crying over spilled milk is a trite and silly figure of speech but crying over a pair of lost marquise cut diamonds is something else entirely.

How To Insure Your Earrings

First things first – check with your current insurers as to whether they will extend the existing policy to cover your earrings. In the event that they don’t, speak to the jewelers to find out who they use for commercial insurance, or ask if they can recommend a specialist insurance company.

In the event that your existing plan can be adapted, great. Now you need to find out what it will cover, how much and what the claims procedure entails. If you find out that your jewelry is covered for its full amount, in all eventualities, fantastic – close the deal, sign along the dotted line and take the cover.

In case that they don’t, check with the specialist insurers, as you need to make sure that the full value is covered, otherwise there’s no point. Imagine you get a 40% coverage, and only then if the earrings are accidentally damaged beyond repair, or stolen from your ears whilst you’re sleeping (not likely but we’re throwing silly scenarios out there anyway), then what?

Bottom line is this: make sure of what it is you need, and what the insurance company are willing to cover.

Remember – Ask The Right Questions

So now you’ve decided who you’re going to take out the insurance with, let’s make sure that you ask all the right questions before you sign up:

  • because you’ll need an appraisal of your jewelry, ask if there’s a specific company that they use

  • how much will the cover cost, annually/monthly?

  • in the event that the earrings are damage-repairable, is that a go, or does the policy just do new-for-old?

  • is the lost/damaged item replaced or paid out on?

  • what’s the deductible? What will you need to pay out before the insurers pay up?

  • is accidental loss covered the same as stolen items are?

Of course the above list isn’t all that you can ask, and some of the questions that you’ll need to ask will be personal to your particular requirements. However the questions listed are the ones most people need to ask, so make sure that you do. Hopefully, once you’re covered, you won’t need it but, in the event that you do, you’ll suffer the loss but soon recoup and recover from the effects.

Cleaning Diamond Earrings – When And Why

Diamond earrings are beautiful, delicate and high on the list of most women’s jewelry must-have’s. However, as gorgeous as they look when they’re new, time and regular use will render them a little less than ‘brilliant’.

Fortunately knowing when to clean them will help preserve their unrivaled sheen, as well as keep them looking as good as they did the day that they were purchased.

Dull Diamonds Are Not A Girls Best Friend

Diamonds, despite their reputation as being one of Nature’s toughest gem stones, can and do tarnish. Regular wear, every-day handling and being poorly stored will eventually dull the stone’s surface, as the facets collect a build up of minute bits and pieces of debris.

The lusterless appearance isn’t something that you see happening, it’s more something that you notice once it’s happened, and that’s when it’s time to think about getting them cleaned.

How often? That will depend on how often the diamond earrings are worn, how much they’re handled and so on. As an example, some women have a tendency to absentmindedly fiddle around with their earrings, whilst others only touch them to put them in or take them out again. Added to that is how long a period they’re worn for. An occasional airing is one thing, wearing them day after day is another.

Regular wear means that they’re handled more, affected by things such as showering/bathing, exposure to the elements, the list goes on. So saying that the diamond/s will take on a dull, flat-looking sheen quicker than a pair worn/used less often. That’s when they’ll require a clean, and in effect only the owner of the earrings will truly know when they’re ready for a little diamond-shining maintenance.

Generally, when they do require a clean up, a little buffing with a lint-free cloth will suffice. On the occasion that they require a deeper clean then there are two choices available:

  • have them cleaned by a professional

  • learn how to do it yourself at home

If the earrings are highly prized, either for their financial or sentimental value, antique, or set into a metal that can’t be cleaned using home-made cleaning solutions, leave the delicate job of returning them to their former glory to the professional jewelry cleaners, otherwise you may well end up with more than just a tarnished gem stone on your hands.
