WHITE AND COLOURED DIAMONDS CARE GUIDE
Diamond is the hardest natural substance on Earth. It can cut any kind of rock or metal, but only another diamond can cut a diamond. The diamond can still be scratched by other objects or damaged by chemicals. So how can you keep your diamond looking its very best? Here are some tips on keeping your diamond sparkling.

CLEAN YOUR DIAMOND REGULARLY
No matter what you do, your diamonds needs cleaning from time to time. A simple plan to keep your diamond jewelry looking beautiful is to soak it in a gentle degreasing solution, such as water with a few drops of mild dish soap, once or twice a week. After you remove the diamond from the cleaning solution, use a soft clean toothbrush to remove any remaining dirt. The toothbrush should be new and reserved exclusively for cleaning your jewelry. Use it to clean hard-to-reach places like the back of the diamond, which tends to collect the most oil and dirt. At least once a year take your diamonds to an expert jeweler to get it properly steamed clean. Your jewellery can look a bit worn with time and wear, but you can make it look brand new again by have it rhodium plated at your jeweler.

Fine jewellery should be removed before diving into a chlorinated swimming pool or before using household cleaners. Many of these cleaners contain ammonia, which can be too harsh for delicate gems or vintage jewelry. Chlorine bleach, another common household solvent, can pit or damage gold alloys.
