How to Clean Your Diamonds

How to clean diamonds

Cleaning diamonds doesn't exactly sound like a budget fashion topic, but taking care of the things that matter most is certainly important for the budget-conscious fashionista. In other words, we may not have a lot of them, but when we do get our hands on a diamond, we want to make sure she shines and looks her best at all times. Which is why I rely on domestic goddess Martha Stewart when cleaning my diamond stud earrings--her trusted method provides a simple, cost-effective way to keep that ice gleaming. Here's how Martha says you should clean your diamond jewelry:

"A cold-water soak is an effective method to clean diamonds. Use six parts cold water to one part household ammonia, soak for 30 minutes, and drain on paper."
