Diamond owners should remember that the stones do get dirty, soiled and dusty. During regular wear, lotions, powders, soaps and even natural skin oils can leave a film on diamonds at the back resulting in a dull and lifeless look. You may have your stones insured but if you don’t keep them clean and sparkling, they will lose their beauty and brilliance.
Storing the stones and your other jewelry collection in a safe place or in a bank safe deposit box is a good start in taking extra precautions for your diamonds. Make sure that you keep them under lock and key when not worn. Keep in mind, though, not to place one diamond jewelry together with other diamonds. You can either wrap each of them in a plastic bag, a small pouch or a tissue. The reason is that a diamond can actually cut another diamond so keeping two pieces together in a single container can result in scratches on the surface or cause other problems.
Caring for the stone When not wearing your diamond, put it in its box or in another safe place. Avoid wearing your jewelry when playing sports, doing physical exercises or doing rough work such as working in the garden. Doing heavy work can cause damage to your diamond ring. You may scratch it, bend the settings or cause other problems. In worse cases, you may even lose the diamond out of the setting.
