    • What about ultrasonic cleaners? Is it a good tool for my diamond ring?


      It’s a good tool to have, but not necessary. It is a safe and low-maintenance way to keep your diamond jewelry clean and shiny. You can use soapy water and a soft toothbrush for regular cleaning and use your ultrasonic cleaner once a month.
      Generally, you can clean your jewelry as much as you like. There is no harm in cleaning diamonds.
      DO NOT CLEAN ANY POROUS OR ORGANIC JEWELLERY (such as pearls, turquoise, opals, amber, etc…).

       

      • Are there certain gems that are more high maintenance – as in, they should be cleaned more often?

       

        Diamonds can and should be cleaned as often as possible since it attracts oils. Touching your jewelry or putting on hand or body lotion can result in oil getting on your diamond ring, dulling the brilliance and color of your diamond. Softer gemstones require more care, though they do not necessarily need to be cleaned more often.

             

        • What do I need to know for long-term care for my fine jewelry?

         

          You should bring your jewelry to be checked by your jeweller at least once a year. Jewellers can check if the claws around your gems has loosened or worn down at all (this is especially important on rings). If so, your jeweller can retip the claws by adding a bit of gold to the ends to reinforce the support for your gemstone.
