Why Is It Important To Keep Your Diamond Necklace Clean?

Obviously, to make sure its brilliance lasts forever! A diamond necklace is a significant investment you've made. Precious items require a lot of care.

How To Clean Diamond Necklace?

Everything you need to clean your diamond necklace,  you will find right at your home. The cleaning technique, too,  is simple, economical and effective. 

First of all, avoid the sink. You would hate to lose a chain, or a pendant, and a little attached diamond, to the drain. Instead, take a clean bowl, fill it up with lukewarm water, and add a few drops of fragrance-free liquid soap to it. Stir the solution till bubbles are formed. Dip your necklace in the solution and give it a good 20-minute soak. More, if it is a bulky necklace. Then take a toothbrush with soft bristles, and scrub it through the edges of the jewel. This will allow all the dirt to be cleansed out. Just be extremely gentle while doing so. Once the scrubbing is over, take another bowl of warm water, and dip the necklace in it. Once it is rid of all the soap residue, retrieve it from the bowl. Take an unused microfibre cloth and carefully pat it dry. 

Now, the most important step- storage. Your diamond necklace should be stored in a separate unit, safely. Rubbing against other jewellery pieces can do it more harm.
