HOW TO CLEAN YOUR DIAMOND EARRINGS AT HOME IN FIVE STEPS
While cleaning diamond earrings may seem to be a difficult process, it is really very easy and may restore your earrings to their former brilliance within minutes. This approach is perfect for diamond stud earrings, but with caution, it may also be used for bigger diamond earrings.
Soak your diamond earrings in warm water for a few minutes.
To begin, place your diamond earrings in a small shallow basin of warm water. Place the bowl on a nice, level surface to avoid spillage and loss of the earrings.
Add unscented dish soap or dishwashing liquid
Add a few drops of simple, unscented dishwashing liquid or soap, taking care that the solution used does not include any colors or smells that may possibly harm the diamond earrings.
Combine the solution well and immerse the diamond earrings for 30 minutes.
Carefully combine the solution, repositioning the diamond earrings as necessary. You should notice that any dirt on the earrings’ surface lifts and rises. Leave the earrings in this solution for at least a half-hour, gently mixing them occasionally.
Rinse and wipe dry the diamond earrings with a clean towel.
Rinse the earrings in warm, soapy water and gently dry with a towel. Using a fresh cloth ensures that no dirt or smells remain on the earrings.
Using a children’s toothbrush, scrub away any remaining residue.
If you see any remaining dirt, quickly brush the diamond earrings using a children’s toothbrush or any other tiny, soft-bristled brush. This helps you to brush away any debris that may have accumulated in the earrings’ microscopic crevices. However, brush softly to avoid moving or dislodging any gems.
HOW TO CLEAN GOLD DIAMOND EARRINGS IN YELLOW AND WHITE
Using the procedure outlined above, you can clean any variety of diamond earrings. It makes no difference what sort of metal you use, whether yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, or platinum, as long as you use a fragrance- and dye-free solution.

Certain cleaning solutions specify the kind of metal and diamond that should be used with them, so always double-check any product you use on your earrings.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD DIAMOND EARRINGS BE CLEANED?
We suggest cleaning your diamond earrings once a week, more often if they are used frequently, to avoid oil and grime build-up. However, we would recommend that you take your diamond earrings to a competent jeweler at least twice a year to have them cleaned. In this manner, they can not only clean it properly but also determine whether there is any damage that requires repair.
HOUSEHOLD TIPS AND TRICKS FOR CLEANING DIAMOND EARRINGS
While cleaning diamond earrings is a very simple task, there are a few techniques to make it even simpler.
- Prior to cleaning, it is critical to check for any loose diamonds or spots that do not feel secure. While this may seem self-evident, many individuals lose their valuable jewels due to a lack of double-checking.
- Ensure that no lint gets on your diamond earrings by using a microfiber cloth or one manufactured exclusively for cleaning jewelry.
- If you do not have a very shallow bowl, you may drain the water using a colander with holes substantially smaller than the diameter of your diamond earrings. Assure that you perform this over a sink with a stopper to prevent them from falling down the drain if they pop through the holes.
- Ensure that any excess water and washing solution is thoroughly washed away. Residue might cause your diamond earrings to seem dull, so thoroughly but gently clean them with warm water.
