Care & Cleaning

Your jewelry can last you a lifetime if you take some minor precautions and practice some simple maintenance.

  • Depending on the material used to craft your ring, it is a good idea to not wear it while performing any strenuous work - including exercising, working on your home or any other heavy labor; blows to the ring may bend its prongs, the ring itself and could even chip your diamond.
  • Although diamond is known as the hardest material on earth, it still runs the risk of being chipped:  a hard blow to the girdle (its middle) or culet (the pointy bottom) may damage it.
  • Additionally, it’s not a good idea to wear your ring while sleeping - due to the prongs potentially catching on the mattress fibers and either tearing the mattress or pulling a prong off.
  • The best way to clean your diamond jewelry is to use a soft toothbrush, a mild dishwashing liquid like Dawn and a lint –free cloth…… Pour a little dishwashing liquid into a bowl or measuring cup and add water…Let the ring soak for a few minutes….Then pull the ring out and gently rub the main diamond and side diamonds with your toothbrush. Then rinse in a clean bowl of water or run under sink water…REMEMBER If doing this near a sink ,make sure it is plugged up!!!
  • After you have finished cleaning your ring gently wipe with a lint-free cloth or any type of soft cloth.
  • Never use toothpaste on any of your jewelry. Toothpaste is an abrasive and will damage the gold on your ring.
  • It’s also a good idea to avoid showering in your jewelry, because most city water is chlorinated and can damage the gold, especially your prongs. Never swim in your jewelry because most public pools are heavily chlorinated.
