Apart from just having a stunning appearance, diamonds also symbolize solidarity, purity, and eternal love. Furthermore, they can even make a great investment option. Thanks to their timeless beauty and amazing durability, diamonds are the most popular gemstone in the United States. However, when you own a diamond necklace, it is important to take certain vital steps to keep it in the best possible condition. Read on to learn more.

Don't Get Perfume, Cosmetics, or Hair Spray On Your Necklace

The last thing you want to do is get your perfume or hair spray on your diamond necklace. Essential oils found in perfumes and sprays can build up both on the crevices between diamonds or on the diamonds themselves which can take away from their beautiful sparkle. The ingredients in these perfumes can even cause the metal parts of your necklaces to erode and become dull.

If you do accidentally get makeup, perfume, or oils on your diamond necklace, it's best to clean it off quickly using warm water and ammonia-free soap before letting the chemicals affect the jewelry.

Store Your Necklace in a Soft Fabric Pouch

Diamond necklaces are the ideal gift and they can even become a cherished family heirloom. When you aren’t wearing it, it's recommended that you store your diamond necklace in a soft fabric pouch. Plastic bags can trap moisture that can damage the diamonds or the metal components. Hence your necklace will be much safer and will last longer if you store it in a soft fabric like felt or velvet. These fabrics won’t snag or scratch the chain or stones of your necklace, and will help keep it looking brand new!

Clean Your Necklace At least Once a Year

Cleaning your diamond necklace is vital in keeping it shiny and beautiful. While monthly cleaning is not necessary, you should consider checking your necklace for any loosening stones.​ To clean your diamond necklace, use warm water and mild soap. However, avoid the use of ultrasonic cleaners or harsh chemicals like bleach, as they can weaken the metal's setting.

Take it To An Experienced Jeweler

Diamonds are a girl's best friend because they are hard to break and they sparkle. Although diamonds are strong, they are not unbreakable and there will be times when your diamond jewelry does need repairs or cleaning.

A diamond that is chipped or cracked can be repaired by an expert jeweler who has experience with invisible stone setting techniques. Do keep in mind that It takes a skilled craftsman to do this repair work successfully.

Diamonds shine beautifully on their own. However improper maintenance will take away from their aesthetic appeal!
