Care of Diamonds
A diamond is the hardest substance known to man. Although your diamond is incredibly durable, it can still be chipped by a strong blow to an edge. Never wear your diamond while doing rough work.
While chlorine and bleach won't harm your diamond, they can damage or discolor the mounting. Always remove your diamond jewelry before using any chemicals. Do have your ring checked and cleaned at least once a year. For everyday light cleaning use a baby toothbrush and warm sudsy water in bowl (never over the sink).
Don't leave your ring on the rim of a sink when you remove it to wash your hands. It can easily slip down the drain. Store your diamond jewelry separately because diamonds can scratch other jewelry or each other. The packing of your diamonds and other precious pieces for travel should be given care.
There are many types of carryalls, specially designed for jewelry travel, available in all price ranges. They come in all sizes, shapes and patterns. Most have velvet pads inside to attach pins and earrings, and special compartments for bracelets and necklaces.
