Clean your jewelry regularly using a gentle jewelry cleaner or a very mild soap and water solution. Using a toothbrush or a soft brush, scrub gently behind the stone where dust and soap collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth. Avoid touching cleaned diamonds with your fingers. Handle clean jewelry by its edges.
