Cleaning your diamond jewelry

  • Soak your diamond and precious metal ring (14kt, 18kt or platinum) for 5-10 minutes in a 50/50 solution of blue windex and hydrogen peroxide
  • Gently brush with a soft toothbrush
  • Rinse with warm water
  • Lay flat to dry or gently dry with a soft paper towel
  • This should be done every week or two to keep your diamonds clean
  • We recommend bringing your item in every 6 months to 1 year for a complimentary cleaning and product checkup. This is a preemptive measure to help maintain the security of your diamonds. We will check for loose stones and any damage, including prongs that are bent, pulled, caught or broken during normal.

Most commonly asked questions regarding caring for your ring

  • Occasionally falling asleep with your ring on is fine
  • Regularly sleeping with your ring on can cause premature and excessive wear on the metal, drastically reducing the life expectancy of your ring.
  • Bad is not the word we would use, but we definitely do not recommend it.
  • Imagine all the things your hands could go through on a daily basis, showering, washing hands, cooking, cleaning, working out, etc. Small particles from all the activities could start building up on your ring. If this happens the buildup could start growing bacteria causing irritation or a rash to form on your finger.
  • Taking your ring off periodically allows you to not only clean your ring but check for any damage.
  • The quick answer is no. Most individuals will swell as they get hot, which can cause the ring to feel tight or make it difficult to get off afterwards
  • Using fitness equipment, lifting weights, etc. can damage/bend the ring, so take it off when you’re doing the heavy lifting.
  • The chemicals in swimming pools and hot tubs will “attack” the alloys in the metal of your ring. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals will make the ring weak and brittle which can cause diamond loss.
  • Typically, when your hands are wet, your ring will feel a little looser.
  • Depending on how loose your ring becomes, it can easily fall off and be lost.
  • It’s almost impossible to know exactly what happened to your ring, but based on history, these are a few of the biggest culprits.
  • Lifting heavy objects.
  • Hitting it while pulling laundry in or out of a washer or dryer.
  • Door frames
  • Moving heavy furniture

Insuring your Diamond ring

  • You will want to make sure your ring is properly insured, through an independent insurer like Jewelers Mutual or your homeowners or renters’ policy, in the event of theft, loss or damage as it is your only protection from financial loss.
  • A typical homeowner's or renter's policy may cover a portion of your jewelry loss; however, it is advisable to find out how much is covered by the policies you have in place, and then purchase a separate rider to make sure you are fully insured.
  • Ask if your policy covers you fully, whether the item is merely damaged, or even if it is lost overseas
  • Most insurance companies will not insure fine jewelry without an appraisal, so make sure to give your insurance company a copy of the appraisal provided at the time of purchase.
  • Please be aware that your insurance company may require updated appraisals on a regular basis. If you need an updated appraisal, please contact us for an appointment and pricing.
