News Desk, News Nation 360: the summer months and outdoor activities can have an impact on your diamond jewellery, and it's vital to care for them properly to preserve their lustre and shine. After all, diamond jewellery is a valuable investment that can last a lifetime so it's imperative to handle it with care to ensure it retains its sparkle and brilliance. Explore some tips on how to take care of your diamonds during the summer. 1. Protect Your Diamonds from chemicals- During the summer, we tend to use more sunscreen, insect repellent, and other lotions and sprays that contain chemicals that can be harmful to your diamonds. These chemicals can cause a buildup of residue on your jewellery, which can make your diamonds appear dull and  lifeless. It's  best  to apply  these  products  before putting  them  on  your jewellery

and to avoid spraying them directly onto your jewellery. 2. Avoid the sea & chlorine water- While swimming is a great way to beat the heat, it's best to remove your diamond jewellery before taking a dip. Chlorine, saltwater, and other chemicals found in pools and the ocean can cause damage to your diamonds over time. These chemicals can also cause discolouration or tarnishing of the metal in your jewellery. Also, there’s the risk of loss, as cold water in the pool will make your fingers shrink, or at the beach where it could not be easily found. 3. Store them properly- Proper storage is key to preserving the beauty and brilliance of your diamonds. When not in use, store your diamond jewellery in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight. Avoid storing your diamonds in a humid environment or in a place where they could come into contact with other jewellery items, which could cause scratches or damage. 4. Keep your diamond sparkling- Every De Beers Forevermark diamond is distinct and unique. Like snowflakes, no two diamonds are alike which is why these precious gifts of nature need to be looked after regularly. During summers, sweat and dirt can build up on your jewellery, so it’s important to regularly clean your jewellery. Once a week, soak your diamond jewellery in water with a few drops of mild soap for a few minutes. Use a soft toothbrush or any other small brush to clean off any dirt nestled in the undersides and grooves. Dry them with a soft cloth. 5. Handle with care- Diamonds may be the hardest substance on earth, but they are not indestructible. It's important to handle your diamond jewellery with care to prevent accidental damage. Avoid wearing your diamonds during activities that could cause damage, such as sports, gardening, or household chores. When putting on or taking off your jewellery, be gentle and avoid pulling or twisting it. By following these simple tips from De Beers Forevermark your diamonds can maintain their beauty and brilliance to last a lifetime and become a cherished family heirloom.
