Diamond Jewellery Care Myths Debunked

Taking proper care of your diamond jewellery is essential to keep it looking its best. But there are many myths and misunderstandings about the recommended ways to look after these precious pieces.

At Lorel Diamonds, we understand the value of your diamond jewellery and we’re here to debunk these myths. Whether it's your sparkling engagement ring, beautiful wedding band, or a delicate set of earrings, knowing the facts can keep your diamonds sparkling for years to come.

Myth 1: Diamonds are Indestructible

Diamonds are the hardest natural material on the planet, but they aren't invincible. They can chip or crack from hard knocks or sudden impacts, especially along the edges. To protect your diamond jewellery, handle it with care and store it in a soft-lined box or fabric pouch when you’re not wearing it.

Myth 2: Diamonds Don't Need to be Cleaned

Myth 2: Diamonds Don't Need to be Cleaned

Regular cleaning is essential to keep your diamond jewellery sparkling. Everyday items like moisturiser, soap, and natural oils can make it look dull. Thankfully, a simple clean is all you need to get your jewellery looking as good as new.

We recommend cleaning your diamond jewellery with mild soap, warm water, and a soft-bristled brush. You can also use the Connoisseurs range of jewellery care products which are available on Amazon.

Myth 3: All Cleaning Solutions are Safe for Diamonds

Myth 3: All Cleaning Solutions are Safe for Diamonds

Not all cleaning solutions are safe for diamonds. Harsh chemicals can damage the metal setting and dull the diamond's shine. Ultrasonic cleaners can also be risky for at-home use — they can potentially loosen the stone.

Stick to recommended cleaning products and methods to ensure your diamond jewellery remains in top condition.

Myth 4: It's Okay to Wear Diamond Jewellery All the Time

Myth 4: It's Okay to Wear Diamond Jewellery All the Time

While diamonds are durable, wearing them all the time can lead to damage. Activities like exercising, swimming, gardening, or doing household chores can expose your jewellery to knocks and scratches.

By being thoughtful about when you wear it, you’ll keep your jewellery looking as stunning as the day you bought it.

Myth 5: Insurance is Unnecessary for Diamond Jewellery

Myth 5: Insurance is Unnecessary for Diamond Jewellery

Insuring your diamond jewellery is essential to protect against loss, theft, or damage. Valuable pieces can be expensive to replace, and insurance provides peace of mind.

Different types of insurance plans are available, so whatever your circumstances, you’ll be able to find a policy that fits your needs. By insuring your diamond jewellery, you can be sure it’s protected no matter what happens.

Myth 6: DIY Repairs are Safe and Cost-Effective

Myth 6: DIY Repairs are Safe and Cost-Effective

Unless you’re an experienced jeweller, attempting to repair your diamond jewellery at home is never a good idea. Without proper tools and expertise, you can easily cause more harm than good, potentially loosening stones or damaging the setting.

It's always best to seek professional maintenance and repair services to ensure your jewellery is properly cared for. Trusting experts will keep your diamond pieces safe and looking their best.

Myth 7: All Diamond Jewellery Requires the Same Care

Myth 7: All Diamond Jewellery Requires the Same Care

Not all diamond jewellery requires the same care. Different settings, metals, and designs have unique maintenance needs. For example, delicate pave settings need gentler cleaning compared to more robust solitaire settings.

Understanding the specific care instructions for your jewellery pieces is crucial. Consult care guides or seek advice from professionals to ensure each piece receives the appropriate attention and remains in pristine condition.
