Diamond Jewellery Care
Since 1969 Brisbane Jeweller, Diamonds International, has been passionately hand crafting diamond jewellery of the highest quality. Our diamonds are sourced for their lustre and brilliance and we want your diamonds to shine just as much as they did the first time you wore them, whether it be your diamond engagement ring, diamond wedding ring, a diamond bracelet or bangle, diamond necklace or pendant, diamond earrings or diamond dress ring, each is as precious as the others.
Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man, but they are not indestructible and like anything they can be scratched, chipped, smudged and spoiled, the girdle of the diamond is particularly vulnerable. As the saying goes 'diamonds are forever' so it is important that you take time to care for your diamonds. By reading through this guide you can be sure that your diamonds will always sparkle and maintain the fiery brilliance that you fell in love with.
Storing your Diamond Jewellery
If your diamond jewellery is for special occasions only and not something that you wear everyday Diamonds International recommend storing your diamond jewellery in a separate compartment of your jewellery box and wrap them in soft cloth. This will avoid your diamonds scratching each other as well as your other jewellery.
Protecting your Diamond Jewellery
It is natural to want to wear your diamond engagement ring and diamond wedding ring everyday, but it is also natural to worry that you may do damage to the diamonds. You can easily protect the diamond jewellery that you wear on your wrists and fingers just by being conscious and removing the pieces when you are going to take part in an activity that may expose your diamonds to an abrasive surface, for example, gardening or sport.
Even during the course of ordinary wear your diamonds are exposed to dirt, dust, pollution, perspiration, makeup, perfume, natural skin oils, as well as chemicals that you find in household cleaning products. These materials may not scratch your diamonds but over time they will build up and cloud your diamonds' natural beauty and brilliance. Household cleaners are also known to cause gold and platinum jewellery to discolour.
Cleaning your Diamond Jewellery
Diamonds International offers a free jewellery cleaning service and lifetime inspection for your Diamonds International pieces. We encourage you to bring your Diamonds International jewellery back to us each year for professional servicing. Visit us at any three of our Brisbane jewellery stores, City, Chermside or Carindale where our staff will be happy to determine the best method of cleaning your diamond jewellery.
