Dirt and oil from your hands can turn a stunning diamond to one that is greasy and dull. There are many ways to clean the hardest material in world, like using an ultrasonic cleaner or a steam cleaner, but these methods can shake stones loose from their mountings. We recommend cleaning your Sevun diamond jewelry with warm, mild soap water and a soft toothbrush. Finish by wiping dry with a lint-free cloth.
Diamond jewelry should also be stored individually as diamonds can scratch other diamonds. Also avoid dropping diamonds. While they are the hardest material in the world, they aren’t indestructible. If the impact is hard enough, it can crack. Finally, avoid direct contact with makeup, perfumes, hair spray, and other corrosive chemicals.
Precious Gemstone Jewelry
Every stone has different toughness and hardness. As such, they need to be treated with special care. Start by storing your gemstones individually to prevent one from scratching the other. Avoid direct impact and do not wear your precious gemstone jewelry when doing anything active or strenuous. Even something as seemingly innocuous as clapping while wearing a diamond eternity ring on one hand and another gemstone ring with your other can cause damage to the gemstone ring.
Not all gemstones are safe for ultrasonic or steam cleaning. To be safe, we recommend cleaning your Sevun precious gemstone jewelry with warm, mild soap water and a soft toothbrush, finishing by wiping dry with a lint-free cloth.
Avoid rapid changes in temperature and avoid leaving your precious gemstone jewelry under direct sunlight or in any excessively hot or dry environment. Also avoid contact with makeup, perfume, hair spray, or any corrosive chemical.
Pearls are extremely soft and are easily scratched. Special care must be taken with pearl jewelry. After each wear, wipe them with a soft, clean cloth and store them individually to avoid impact with other jewelry or objects. Occasionally, clean them with a damp cloth to help restore moisture.

Other Maintenance Tips
Our jewelry is made with precious metals like gold and platinum but cleaning them is as easy as simply rinsing them with warm, mild soap water. While scratches from wear are inevitable, especially with precious metals that are worn daily, do not hesitate in bringing in your jewelry for a quick re-polish or re-plating. Both will quickly restore your jewelry and make them shine like new.
