Synthetic Diamond Cleaning and Care Tips

Synthetic Diamond Wear

When performing manual tasks, remove your jewelry to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning solutions. Some tasks that should be avoided when wearing jewelry include kitchen work, gardening, cleaning the house, moving furniture and other common tasks. Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes, and lotions can contain chemicals that can often damage or cause build-up on your jewelry or precious stones. Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and sometimes even structural damage.

Cleaning Synthetic Diamond Jewelry

Remove Your Jewelry Before Bathing. Be sure to remove all jewelry before showering or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to build-up or be left behind that will make your jewelry and stones appear dull, cloudy or dingy. Use Jewelry Polishing cloths for optimal results. Polish your gold with a jewelry polishing cloth for best results. You can also use a soft towel or cloth baby diaper, but the professional cloths are the best. Use of facial tissue or paper towels can cause scratches because of coarse fibers in these products. Be sure to only use nonabrasive jewelry cleaners. Never use bleach, as can destroy your beautiful piece of jewelry. Jewelry is meant to be decorative, and it is not indestructible We recommend inspecting it often, and visiting a trusted jeweler periodically for regular maintenance and cleanings.

Lab Created Gemstones

While incredibly hard, lab-created gemstones and synthetic diamonds are susceptible to the same types of damage that could cause a natural diamond or gem to chip or crack. The best way to clean your synthetic diamond and lab-created gemstone is in warm water, mild dish soap and a very soft (children's) toothbrush or the eco-friendly, non-toxic jewelry cleaner included with your purchase. Allow your jewelry to soak in the soapy water for a few minutes; the hand dishwashing liquid will help dissolve the grease from body oils, which play a large part in trapping dirt onto your jewelry and stones.
