How to handle Diamonds
Diamonds by nature repel water. However, oil or grease easily sticks on them. Therefore, it is a good
idea not to wear diamond jewellery when doing strenuous work in which you will sweat a lot or
work in the dust and dirt. Do not wear diamond jewellery when exercising or cleaning the house.

this is repeated, diamond stones may lose their lustre. Diamond stones set in jewellery will start
appearing dull if grime settles in and the stone does not refract the light falling on it. Check the
mounting of the stone to see if it is ok from time to time. This will prevent the stone from falling off
if the mounting becomes loose. The mounting can also loosen up if there is an excess of grime
deposit between the prongs and the stone.

centigrade. Reputed jewellers often give cleaning services for the diamond jewellery pieces that they
