Grime can buildup on jewellery , either underneath the settings or around the stones which can cause the diamonds to look dull. To clean at home first soak your jewellery in warm to hot water for about 20 minutes.

We recommend buying a soft toothbrush and gently rinsing your piece with warm water (make sure the drain is covered or use a bowl) and soap liquid and gently brushing the piece with the toothbrush to remove the grime. Repeat as necessary. Afterwards dry the piece and use a jewellery polishing cloth for a sparkling finish.

If a lot of grime has built up over time and hardened it might be best to bring the piece of jewellery to us so we can help you clean the ring professionally.

Household cleaners also contain harsh chemicals which can damage and discolour the metal and gemstones.

We always advise not to wearing your ring when you visit the gym or partaking in any strenuous physical activities (tennis, weight-lifting, rock climbing etc). Jewellery are made in precious metals and  gems, and even though they are hard wearing materials they are to a certain degree soft and by putting pressure on the material you could risk damaging its shape and or scratch the stones and possibly falling out. Keep your jewellery piece in a safe place so you don’t damage it when you’re working out.

It’s common to want to keep your ring on when you’re getting ready but moisturisers, lotions, cosmetics, hairspray and perfumes all cause a build up of grime which diminishes the brilliance and natural sheen of your diamond.

We do not advice of wearing  jewellery in the ocean, pool or showering.

Pool – Chlorine can sometimes damage and provoke discolouration. Showering-  your jewellery can easily slip off and risk falling down the drain. Also oily or exfoliating body washes can damage the gemstones.

A diamond is one of the world’s hardest materials but it can still chip! Cleaning can be a very vigorous activity with lots of potential to bang your piece on hard surfaces which can damage the setting or stones. Household cleaners also contain harsh chemicals which can damage and discolour the metal and gemstones. When washing the dishes you also risk the piece slipping off and falling down the drain. Better to be safe and keep the jewellery in a secure place until you have finished.
