Keep Your Diamonds Safe and Protected
Despite the marketing claims that say diamonds are forever, they are not indestructible. They are the hard substance on the planet, but they be damaged. It is possible to chip or crack a diamond. When precious diamonds are properly stored in a dry jewelry box, they are more likely to last. It is the harsh conditions in the environment that can cause the most damage.
The best way to store a diamond is away from other diamonds. Since they are equally hard substances, they can damage each other. Some people will have separate boxes for each piece of diamond jewelry they own. At Chasing Treasures, we have small trinket boxes that can be used as individual boxes for individual rings. It is also possible to store individual rings in separate drawers in a larger box. They can also be stored in the separate compartments in jewelry box trays. Proper storage is a great way to keep rings in like-new shape.
Be Aware of When You Are Wearing Your Rings
When and how you wear your ring can make a difference in the longevity of the piece, too. There is nothing wrong with taking off a ring before you do any type of dirty work or heavy work that could damage the metal or the stone. Not wearing your ring in the shower, tub, or while doing dishes will help extend the life. It is also a good idea to take it off any time that you will be working with chemicals, even if you wear protective gloves.
If you are storing your rings for an extended period of time, it is helpful to clean them first. But, you should always clean with the appropriate cleaners. While diamonds do not react to chemicals, the metal setting might react negatively. If the cleaner contains chlorine, troubles can occur. This could result in the weakening of the setting, which could cause the diamond to fall out and get lost. If your diamond ring also has other types of stone in it, the cleaner you use on your diamond could shatter the other stones. It is best to take rings with mixed stones to a jeweler for cleaning.
