Diamonds have long been revered as symbols of love, commitment, and luxury; yet one lingering question persists: Do diamonds lose their shine? At Diamond Galleria, we understand the significance of maintaining the sparkle and brilliance of your precious diamonds for future generations - while diamonds provide exceptional hardness against scratches they still can become worn with use over time from daily usage.

The Science Behind The Sparkle

Diamonds' mesmerizing brilliance stems from their unique interaction with light. As light passes through it, its entry causes it to undergo various processes including refraction and dispersion processes that produce rainbow-hued reflections upon its surface - optimized diamond cuts are key in optimizing these interactions and amplifying brilliance and fieriness.

Diamond surfaces can quickly accumulate a layer of grime made up of dirt, oil, and lotion residue. This filmy layer acts like an obstruction to light entering and dims its luminosity.

Common Sources of Dull Diamonds 

  • Body Oils and Lotions: Our bodies naturally secrete oils that leave behind residue on diamond surfaces when applied regularly, creating dull diamonds over time.
  • Soap Scum: Wearing diamonds while showering or dishwashing may expose them to soap scum build-up that over time causes their shine to diminish and their value to decrease over time.
  • Dust and Dirt: Exposure to environmental elements may expose diamond surfaces to dust and dirt particles that build up over time, potentially diminishing their brilliance and producing halos at their edges.
  • Makeup/Hairspray Residues: These agents can form a residue on diamond surfaces, which reduces brilliance.

At Diamond Galleria, our expert guidance and services aim to preserve your diamond's timeless radiance through professional cleaning and personalized care advice—we take great pleasure in keeping their allure shining bright!

Reviving Diamond's Sparkle: Upholding Their Brilliance

With some TLC follow these simple tips to revive the shine in your diamond!

Regular Cleaning

Our experts advise creating an at-home jewelry cleaning routine every week. Create a gentle solution of warm water and mild dish soap. Soak jewelry for 20-30 minutes in this solution before gently brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush, thoroughly rinse off using clean water, and pat dry using soft cloths.

Professional Clean

For optimal diamond care, visit Diamond Galleria for a professional cleaning every six months. Our trained jewelers possess all the tools and know-how required to remove stubborn dirt or grime so your diamonds regain their maximum sparkle!

Keep Your Jewelry Protected When Not Being Worn

When not being worn, store diamond jewelry carefully in a soft pouch or jewelry box lined with fabric to reduce scratches and dust accumulation and preserve its value over time. Ultimately, this ensures its value remains preserved while protecting its value as an investment. 

Always Protect Your Investment

Cleanliness is of utmost importance, yet protecting against dirt build-up at its source should also be prioritized. 

  • Always remove jewelry before applying lotions, soaps, or makeup.
  • To maintain diamond jewelry's brilliance, avoid wearing it during household tasks or physical activities. 
  • Ensure it has an appropriate setting—one designed to shield its precious gem from physical damage, which could impact its brilliance. 
  • A well-planned setting may even add another level of protection from physical harm that might reduce brilliance over time.
