A Sparkling Guide to Caring for Fine Jewelry: Do's and Don'ts for Diamonds and Gold

Fine jewelry, adorned with diamonds and gold, deserves meticulous care to maintain its timeless beauty. In this comprehensive guide, we'll share the do's and don'ts of cleaning, caring for and maintaining your precious pieces. 

Preserving the Brilliance of Diamonds

Diamonds, known for their unparalleled sparkle, require regular care to maintain their brilliance. Here's what you need to know:


Clean Regularly: Gently clean your diamond jewelry with a mild solution of warm water and a small amount of dish soap.

Be Gentle: Use a soft-bristled brush to reach intricate settings and remove accumulated dirt.

Call A Pro: Schedule periodic professional inspections to ensure the integrity of prongs and settings.


Use Harsh Chemicals: Avoid exposing diamonds to harsh chemicals, as they can damage the metal settings and diminish the brilliance.

Be Rough: Refrain from using abrasive materials or harsh brushes, as they can scratch the metal or diamond surface.

Nurturing the Luster of Gold Jewelry

Gold jewelry, prized for its elegance, can lose its luster without proper care. Follow these guidelines for keeping your gold pieces radiant:


Be Gentle: Clean gold jewelry with a mixture of warm water and mild soap using a soft cloth.

Invest In a Polishing Cloth: Regularly use a jewelry polishing cloth to maintain the shine of your gold pieces.

Keep It Safe: Store gold jewelry in a soft pouch or lined box to prevent scratching.

Have Contact with Hard Surfaces: Minimize contact with hard surfaces to prevent dents or scratches.

Remove Before Activities: Take off your jewelry and safely store before engaging in activities like swimming, exercising, or cleaning to prevent damage.

Professional Cleaning: Schedule professional cleanings at least once a year to address any hard-to-reach dirt and maintain the overall condition of your jewelry.
