Care for Diamond jewelry
Diamonds can be cleaned safely with lint-free cloths, soap and water, jewelry cleaning solutions and ultrasonic cleaners. Harsh cleaning methods are not recommended for home use.
Care for Black Diamonds (with Black Rhodium Plating)
Black Diamonds are natural diamonds that have been treated to give them their black color. Due to this treatment, they are sensitive to heat, chlorine and other household chemicals. Do not subject them to high temperatures and do not clean with ultrasonic cleaners.
You will notice that many of our pieces set with Black diamonds have been black rhodium plated. Plating is a process that coats a fine layer of black rhodium over gold or sterling silver to the entire piece (or a specific area) intense blackened appearance.
Rhodium plating is not permanent and may wear off in time. The wear time depends on how much the jewelry is used.
