Would you leave your diamond earrings untouched or clean them regularly? The latter option sounds good, yet that is what your jewels need. Diamond jewelry is of high value, and you should treasure it.
Regular cleaning helps keep your earrings looking dazzling if you wear them often. You can clean your diamond earrings at home or take them for professional cleaning by a jeweler.
How To Clean Diamond Earrings At Home
Like any piece of jewelry, earrings gather dirt and a buildup of oil. Here are simple steps you can apply at home.
- Take a shallow bowl, place it on a flat surface and fill it with water.
- Add some soap or washing liquid and mix it carefully.
- Take your earrings and dip them in the solution.
- Move them around in a stirring motion.
- Leave the jewels for about 30 minutes.
- Brush the earrings gently with a soft-bristled brush to remove any lingering dirt.
- Rinse and dry your jewelry with a clean cloth.
How A Professional Jeweler Clean Earrings
The earrings are put into ultrasonic cleaning equipment with cleaning agents that loosen dirt from the stone. Ultrasonic jewelry cleaners use high-frequency sound waves that create bubbles, enabling the cleaning agent to reach tight corners.
Another method is to subject the earrings to a steam blast. This process removes dirt and grime, restoring the sparkle on your diamond earrings. Discuss these options with your jeweler on the next visit. Take your earrings for professional cleaning twice a year.
What Are the Precautions You Should Consider?
Avoid using household cleaners as harsh chemical ingredients can damage diamond earrings. Always take off your diamond earrings before going to bed. They are uncomfortable to sleep with, and you risk damaging the settings. Lastly, ensure that you rinse off properly when cleaning your diamond jewelry.
