You're Cleaning Your Diamond Ring Wrong

BY : Esther Meir

But no worries. Here's how to clean your diamond ring the Right Way.



Before you bring your Diamond Ring in for an Appraisal, you've got to make it look its best. You wouldn't go to a job interview without showering would you? (We hope not).

So don't let Your Diamonds go to their appraisal without a shower of their own.

Clear and shiny diamonds are what will get you those higher profits. Not dusty, rusty stones.

A clean ring not only looks more impressive, but is more impressive. 

You want the jewelry appraiser to truly see your diamond ring for what it is and what it's worth. A good scrubbing will go a long way, letting you  show off every wonderous aspect of your ring: the meticulously cut diamond, the ornately designed prongs, and the carefully crafted setting.

Considering the sentimental value we attach to a diamond ring, it’s not out of the ordinary to wonder about the history of the stone, as well as where it might end up after its time in your possession. Chances are, the diamond has traveled to more continents than you have before ending up on you or your partner’s finger. So when it comes to diamonds, supply-chain transparency carries more emotional significance than it would for products like coffee beans or sneakers.
