The best way to keep your diamonds clean is to avoid the things that dirty them the most. Diamonds are attracted to oil, this is one of the reasons they can get dirty so quickly. Skin oils contribute to this greatly, and of course, cannot be avoided. However, even more to blame are moisturizers - especially when applied while wearing jewelry. Remove rings when applying lotion to hands, allow it to be absorbed for at least 10-15 minutes before putting jewelry back on. Also take jewelry off when bathing, as that same soap scum that accumulates on your shower, will accumulate on your jewelry as well!
