Bridal jewellery, such as engagement rings and wedding bands are typically worn daily, and can appear like they've lost their sparkle if not cleaned on a regular basis. Lotions put film on diamonds and reduce their shininess. Don't wear diamond jewellery while doing rough work. Avoid chlorinated pools and hot tubs. Avoid touching diamonds with your fingers, as smudges can affect a diamond's luster and fire.
For color or clarity enhanced gemstones, ask a Barthau Jewellers professional about cleaning and repair for your gemstone jewellery. For more information about each particular gemstone, read our gemstone guide.
