Do you have a collection of diamond bracelets and necklaces? Perhaps you plan on investing in a few special, sparkly pieces in the near future. If so, it is imperative that you learn to care for your diamond jewellery in order to keep it in mint condition and maintain its value.
If you take the time to properly care for your diamond jewellery, your pieces could last for generations and be passed down as family heirlooms. As suppliers of top-quality diamond bracelets, necklaces, and earrings in New Zealand, here are some of our top tips for caring for your diamond jewellery.
#1 Store in a Cool, Dry Box
It’s important that you have a proper storage system for your jewellery if you want to maintain its longevity. As much as it is tempting to leave your diamond pieces on a sunny windowsill to watch them sparkle, sunlight can cause discoloration to diamond jewellery over time.
#2 Clean Before Storing
Try getting into the habit of cleaning your jewellery before taking it off and putting it away. While manufacturers typically provide specific cleaning instructions, it is usually recommended to wipe your jewellery with warm, soapy water.
#3 Don’t Shower or Swim While Wearing Your Diamond Jewellery
Many of us get into the habit of wearing our jewellery all day, every day, and although diamond jewellery is very durable, you may want to take it off when you bathe, shower, and swim if you want to extend its longevity.
#4 Keep in a ‘Secret’ Location
Unfortunately, if your home were to experience a break in, there is a good chance that the criminals would take off with your jewellery. This is why it is important to store your jewellery in a place that may be a bit difficult for potential burglars to find. There are many amazing jewellery boxes that look like books or other objects. It may be a good idea for you to store your most precious pieces in a safe if you have one.
