How do I remove dirt or grime from my Diamond rings?
After soaking your diamond jewelry in a warm bowl of water with a couple of drops of mild dish detergent for twenty minutes, get a clean toothbrush and, with a very gentle light hand, lightly wipe off any dirt or grime.
Once done, rinse your ring in clean water and dry with a lint-free cloth.
For proper professional clean, it is recommended that you take your diamond ring to a professional jewelry cleaner at least once every few months. Your professional jewelry cleaner would then use steaming and sonic cleaner to deep clean your diamond jewelry.
Can I wear my Diamonds in water?
Of course, our Diamonds are safe to wear in water. You can wear diamonds every day as part of your daily life. That means there is no need to remove your diamond rings when washing your hands or going about your daily routines. Diamonds are even safe to sleep in if you choose to.
Although diamonds are naturally durable, and the toughest stone known to mankind, do consider taking off your jewelry when going to the pool, beach, rigorously working out and exercising.
This is not because the stone will tarnish but to minimize the risk of loosing your precious piece of jewelry entirely if it slips off. It is also possible, that in extreme conditions, smaller pavé stones can pop out and become lost if exposed to intense heat or water pressure.
When should I remove my Diamond rings?
It is, completely fine to wear your diamond rings every day.
That means there is no need to remove your diamond rings when washing your hands or going about your day completing your daily tasks. You can even sleep in in your diamonds if you choose to.
Although, whilst diamonds are a naturally sturdy and tough stone, we do recommend removing your ring when doing rigorous exercise, home improvement projects, hard labour or rigorous cleaning.

Can my Diamonds become loose over time?
It is important to regularly check the status of your prongs and settings to ensure your diamond is being properly held in place. If your ring has been under immense pressure or had been knocked quite aggressively, it is possible your diamond has been dislodged or moved.
To ensure your diamond is safe and in good condition, book a maintenance appointment with a professional jeweler at least once a year. They will help you make sure that the prongs around the diamond are tight and that there are no hairline cracks that require repair.
How do I store my Diamond rings and jewellery?
Simply keep your diamond jewelry in the box or pouch that it came it. It is highly recommended that you store each item of your jewelry collection in its own box or pouch to avoid it getting scratched with other jewelry while in storage.
