Diamond Cleaning and Care
Diamond Buyer's Guide
When you spend a lot of money on a beautiful piece of jewellery you will, naturally, want to keep it clean.
The cleaner a diamond is the more dazzling its sparkle. Ordinary soaps, moisturisers and oils from your skin can dull a diamond, so why not use one of these methods to keep yours clean?
Ways to clean your diamond
Here are four ways to clean your diamond yourself:
- Our cleaning promise: you have a Diamond Privilege card, bring it to any H.Samuel store for your annual free clean and inspection of diamond jewellery that you have purchased from us.
- Quick dip method: use our recommended liquid jewellery cleaner to keep your diamond jewellery as brilliant as when you first bought it.
- The cold water soak: make a half and half mixture of cold water and household ammonia in a cup. Soak your diamond for 30 minutes. Lift out and use a small soft brush to free anyremaining dirt. Dip back into the solution one more time and then pat dry with a lint free cloth.
- The detergent bath: a small bowl of warm suds with any mild liquid detergent. Brush your diamond jewellery gently with a small soft brush in the suds. Rinse thoroughly under water and pat dry with a soft lint free cloth.
Jewellery cleaning products
We offer a range of cleaning products online and in-store for gold and silver jewellery to help you keep your jewellery looking as good as new.
It is important to ensure that your diamond doesn't come into contact with bleach as it can damage the setting. Don't wear your diamond when doing rough work - even though diamonds are durable, they can be chipped by a hard knock. And don't store your diamond jewellery together as diamonds can scratch each other and other jewellery.
Lastly, make sure that you visit your local H.Samuel store each year to have your diamond jewellery checked for weakened or bent claws.
Your diamond is the purchase of a life time, so it is worth looking after, and we are sure that the above recommendations will give you lasting satisfaction with your diamond jewellery.
