Diamond earrings from Goldsmith Jewelers are more than just a fashion accessory, they are a symbol of quality, craftsmanship, and enduring beauty. Like any precious gem, however, they require regular and proper cleaning to maintain their brilliant shine and sparkle. Our dedication to customer service includes helping you care for your jewelry, extending its lifetime, and keeping it looking like new for years to come.

Understanding Diamond Earrings

Diamonds, formed under immense pressure and heat deep within the earth, are the hardest natural substance known to man. They are set into a variety of metals, including gold, silver, and platinum, in an array of styles. The specific composition of your diamond earrings affects how they should be cleaned and cared for, underscoring the importance of understanding your jewelry.

When to Clean Diamond Earrings

Diamond earrings don’t need to be cleaned every day, but if they have lost their shine or if there’s visible buildup on the settings, it’s time for a cleaning. As a general recommendation, a thorough cleaning every month or two can help keep your earrings looking their best.

Materials Needed for Cleaning Diamond Earrings

For DIY cleaning, you’ll need:

  • Mild dish soap
  • Warm (not hot) water
  • A soft toothbrush
  • A soft, lint-free cloth

For deeper cleaning or when dealing with complex settings, specialized cleaning tools or solutions can be used.
