Diamonds while a durable precious stone, still need to cared for. Diamonds while unbreakable in most instances can be tarnished in other ways. There are some facts to remember in the care for your diamonds. Diamonds are easy to get dirty, especially by oils secreted by skin. Touching a diamond deposits oils on it that dull its appearance. Cleaning your diamond regularly is crucial. Regular cleaning of your diamonds keeps the luster and brilliance of them picture perfect. There are many old wives tales and products on the market on how to clean your diamonds. The easiest way to clean your diamond daily is to soak it in ammonia based cleaner. The soak can be done overnight for the best results. This soak can be done one to two times a week at most. Soaking rather than brushing or using abrasives is the way to go, as this eliminates the chance of damaging prongs or settings. Regularly having the settings, prongs, and metals surrounding your diamonds is also crucial. This will prevent any accidental loss of your diamond from falling out of its mounting.
