How to Care for your Salt and Pepper Diamond
If you've recently received a salt and pepper diamond ring or another piece of diamond jewelry, you're likely eager to keep it looking its best. However, caring for your diamond involves more than just admiring its sparkle. In this post, we'll provide you with some tips and guidelines for proper diamond care, including storing your jewelry, cleaning, handling, and insurance.
Storing Your Jewelry
While diamonds are among the hardest materials in the world, they can still be scratched and chipped if not stored correctly. Therefore, it's essential to store your diamond jewelry in a dry location to prevent damage from humidity and moisture. A dry box that separates your diamond and metal setting from other jewelry is the best option. Consider our velvet travel case for easy organization and storage of your salt and pepper diamond ring and other jewelry.
Daily wear, oils from your skin, and household chemicals can dull your diamond's shine over time. To renew its sparkle, you can clean your diamond jewelry with our biodegradable gentle foaming cleaner or a simple solution of warm water and mild dish soap. Soak your jewelry in the solution for about 20 minutes, scrub gently, rinse, and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid air-drying, as this can leave water spots on your jewelry. For commercial cleaning solutions, make sure to read the package directions to ensure they're suitable for your type of jewelry.

While it's tempting to wear your diamond jewelry all the time, some activities can damage the diamond or its setting. It's best to remove your jewelry when doing heavy labor, gardening, or any activity involving harsh chemicals. Also, try to avoid touching your diamond with your fingers, as the oils from your skin can alter its shine and sparkle.
When cleaning your diamond, be gentle, vigorous scrubbing with a toothbrush can damage the setting, so use a soft cloth instead.
Depending on the value of your diamond jewelry, you might consider insuring it. There are several options for stand-alone jewelry insurance or adding a rider to your homeowners' insurance. Contact your existing insurance agent to discuss your options and decide what's best for you.
