The Greeks had a word for diamonds: “adamas” which means invincible; however although diamonds are the hardest of the precious stones, it is perhaps a bit of an exaggeration to say that they are completely invulnerable. If you want to get the best out of your diamond eternity ring or diamond earrings long into the future, then there are a few things you can do.

Firstly, it is important to note that the cut of a diamond can often be very precise; therefore any cleaning procedure needs to be extremely delicate, in order to ensure that you don’t affect the quality of the diamond. Of course one way around this would be to ask a professional jeweller to do it for you; however, if you want to clean your diamond rings yourself there are definitely some things you can try at home.

You can clean your diamond eternity ring or diamond earrings with a soft cloth on a fairly regular basis. If done properly this should not damage the ring, and will prevent a build up of dirt on the piece, which can undermine its quality.

For a more thorough cleaning method, you might consider soaking the piece in warm water or a mild detergent solution – about one part mild detergent and four parts warm water.

Considering that diamond rings are some of the most durable kinds of jewellery, these simple cleaning methods should keep your item dazzling long into the future!
