Diamonds. We all adore them, and of course, the bigger, the better, as the saying goes.
But these precious sparklers need lots of TLC. So, how do you keep diamonds ultra-shiny on the go?
Everyone's been buzzing about the Dazzle Diamond Stik by Connoisseurs. For $7.95, you get a cute little magic marker-looking pen that contains "micro-fine cleansers and polishing agents combined with a polymer. The polymer fills in fine scratches on the setting, dramatically increases the brilliance and sparkle of the diamond, and reduces the future build-up of dirt."
Sounds pretty brilliant, so so speak. All you do is, twist, brush, and dazzle! The Dazzle Diamond Stik has a built-in flow-thru brush. The unique brush has been specifically designed to easily and quickly clean behind diamonds and other precious stones and their mountings.
Our friend Nina gave us one, and this little stik does what it says! Check out the Diamond Dazzle Stik here.
You can also use this cheap and effective method to brighten your bling. We wrote about this before. Recommendations come from the Jeweler's Association:
Cleaning and Storing Diamonds:
You have two simple options here. Place your diamonds into rubbing alcohol or a mixture of equal parts ammonia and cold water. Let them soak for a few minutes. Then take a brush with soft bristles, like a baby toothbrush, and gently clean your diamonds. Rinse off. And lay them on a tissue to dry.
You should store your diamonds individually to prevent scratching other diamonds or gold, or softer gems. Don't just throw your gems into a jewelry box and pile them on top of each other. You must take care in keeping fine jewelry sparkling and blemish-free.
