Welcome back all to our Tip top Friday tip of the week. This week’s tip is regarding cleaning what has been deemed a girls best friend Diamonds. Below are some suggestions on cleaning this alluring and precious stone.
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but they still need some love and attention to maintain that relationship. A simple home made cleaning solution can be created to bring all the sparkle back in this hard yet precious stone.
– 1part Ammonia
-3parts Warm water
Once the solution is created, your diamond should be soaked for 20 minutes in the solution then Gently scrubbed with a soft-bristle toothbrush. The initial soaking helps get the solution into the small hard to reach areas between the diamond and the setting it maybe in.
The next step is to remove from solution and rinse with warm water, then dry and polish with a lint free cloth. If diamonds are set in platinum, this method will also bring shine back to the setting. Avoid contact with chlorinated pools or household cleaning products containing chlorine bleach because they may discolor the mounting.
