It is true that diamond jewelry is forever but diamond tends to lose its shine and sparkle over the years. You can get back this shine and sparkle by doing a little effort at home only. It is cheap as well as easy way so just pick up a toothbrush, toothpaste, water, and start the process.
The first thing you need to do is to choose good quality toothpaste. Make sure it is of white color and strictly avoid the use of gels as it can stick in the setting of the piece of jewelry. Use a tooth brush to rub it against the diamond. It is better to use a new tooth brush and keep it separate for cleaning of jewelry only.
Take a bowl and fill it with luke warm water. Use the same process as is used to brush and clean the teeth. Rub the toothbrush with the toothpaste on the diamond. Hold the diamond over the bowl so it falls in the bowl only if it slips from your hand. Otherwise, you’ll have to search for it and you can even lose it if it falls on the floor.
Take into consideration that you rub the diamond gently with the toothbrush. Carefully scrub and rub the toothpaste in all the areas of the setting. Keep on rinsing off with the toothbrush and then again rubbing the jewelry gently.
Then rinse the jewelry in the luke warm water and completely rinse the toothpaste off the diamond. Then keep the jewelry and the toothbrush in the water and rinse the jewelry keeping it under water only.
The next step is to take it out of the water and take a clean and dry cloth to wipe it. Make sure to pat it dry with a soft cloth. Then take the jewelry in the light and check if it is cleaned properly or not. If the light passes through it then it has been cleaned properly.
Following these steps will give your diamond the desired sparkle. So pick up your jewelry and follow these tips and see the difference in the finishing of your jewelr.
