How to Clean Diamond Rings and jewelry at Home Safely
1- Use boiling water
As mentioned earlier, you need to know when to clean with boiling water. Pure gold can be fired without any problems. However, firing delicate gems (such as higher definition diamonds, opals, pearls, corals, and transparent gems) can crack and destroy them. Especially if the jewellery is fresh before firing. Baking is also not suitable for jewelry with glued gemstones, because it will loosen the glue. If the goal is to clean pure gold jewelry or gold trinkets with "sturdy" gems (such as diamonds instead of crystal diamonds), boiling water is a good choice.
You don't have to boil a lot of water to "submerge" all the jewelry. You can cook them in a small saucepan with gas or other tools that will not be damaged by water (such as cups, heat-resistant glass, or metal bowls). ). It is important to ensure that the trinkets is not layered, because water can reach every piece of jewellery. Therefore, make sure that the tool size is appropriate.
Wait for the water to cool. When you can reach into the water, it's time to take off your jewellery. Scrub each piece with a soft brush, then dry it on a soft towel and air dry completely.
If the water looks dirty, don't worry-this is a good sign! When boiling water releases the dirt accumulated on the jewelry, it can float on the water. The presence of dirty water guarantees clean trinketry!
Mix a small amount of toothpaste with water (for every inch of toothpaste in a bowl or palm, mix one or two tablespoons of water to make toothpaste). Toothpaste can well remove dirt accumulated on gold jewellery without scratching it. This cleaning method will not wear the jewelry, so it can be used frequently, for quick cleaning or when there are no other cleaning products.
Finally, thoroughly wash to remove any accumulated dirt.
3-Washing Jewelry with Soap
Soak the gold jewellery in the solution for about 15 minutes. When soaking, hot water and soap will penetrate cracks and crevices, removing dirt that is difficult to remove by hand.
Remove the trinkets and wipe gently with a toothbrush. Scrub each piece individually, paying special attention to hidden corners that may hide dirt. Use a very soft brush-the softer the better. Rough bristles will scratch the surface of trinkets. If the jewelry is plated with gold (rather than pure gold), the particularly hard bristles can even completely remove the gold layer. Special brushes designed for this purpose are the best, but most soft, soft brushes (such as eyebrow brushes) can also be used.
Then wash each piece with hot water. Additional washing in running water will help remove dirt that does not stick to the brush. Again, make sure the water is not too hot. If the Diamond is washed in the sink, be sure to throw it into the drain. Therefore, if the jewelry slips from your hand, you will not accidentally lose it. Alternatively, you can wash it in a colander.
