Recommendations for Cleaning Your Hearts On Fire Jewelry


To truly showcase the beauty of your Hearts On Fire jewelry, we recommend regularly cleaning your fine diamond jewelry, with the following recommendations. However, it is always best to have a trained professional clean your jewelry as often as once a year.

  • Be sure to close the drain to prevent loss
  • Use warm water and mild soap – avoid exposing your jewelry to household bleach, which will quickly cause gold to discolor and possibly disintegrate
  • Rinse
  • Polish with a soft cloth
  • Dry your jewelry before storage. Both gold and silver can tarnish from water and it also can leave residual water stains on your precious metals

Cleaning Your Diamonds

  • Use a soft bristled, non-metallic brush and a mild ammonia and warm water solution
  • Gently scrub away any grime, especially around the prongs or setting where buildup is likely. Even a clean looking diamond often has a thin layer of skin oil and will shine better after a cleaning

Storage of Your Jewelry

  • Store your jewelry carefully
  • Try not to let the pieces touch to avoid scratching
  • Fabric-lined jewelry boxes are ideal

In order to prolong the beauty of your jewelry, it is always wise to remove your jewelry before:

  • Playing sports or exercising at the gym
  • Cleaning the house or using harsh chemicals
  • Putting on lotion, perfume, hairspray, shaving cream and other beauty products – cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotions can contain chemicals that can often damage jewelry
  • Doing laundry
  • Swimming in the pool – the chlorine in pools and spas can react with jewelry metals causing color changes and even structural damage
  • Bathing – remove all jewelry before showering or cleaning. Soap can cause a film, making it appear dull and dingy
  • Experiencing extreme cold or heat
  • Gardening
