Since a diamond takes thousands of years to create, it is worth it to invest a little time and attention in its care. Doing so will ensure its lasting beauty, brilliance and sparkle.
Routine Home Cleaning - gently scrub your jewelry with a soft brush, using an ammonia solution, warm water or a jewelry cleaner, to remove perspiration, household cleaners, chlorine, hair care products or even soap film. Borsheim's also offers small "ultrasonic" cleaners that clean your jewelry with high frequency sound.
Annual Professional Cleaning - diamond jewelry, especially pieces that are worn frequently, should have an biannual cleaning by Borsheim's. This not only helps to restore the diamond's brilliance, but also allows the security of the setting to be checked.
Protective Storage - when not worn, diamond jewelry should be stored individually to prevent scratching or dulling. Soft cloth pouches are ideal for this purpose.
Regardless of the jewelry, its care is key to lasting beauty and enjoyment. Prevent abrasions and dulling by keeping your gold jewelry away from chlorine, cleaning fluid and other household cleaners. Store your gold, platinum, silver and contemporary metal pieces in soft cloth bags or in their original boxes.
Routinely clean your jewelry with a detergent-free soap and warm water, using a soft-bristled brush. Consider professional cleaning by Borsheim’s three to four times a year to check settings and clasps, as well.
