Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods.

The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

How To Keep Your Diamond Shining

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 10:44 PM
Diamond ShiningSummary: Your diamond jewellery will lose its sparkle over time, so as well as looking after it you will also need to clean in once in a while.

Everybody loves the way a diamond sparkles and shines with the light when you look at it. Diamonds are one of the hardest naturally formed elements known to man and are used for not only jewellery, but also for cutting things such as glass as they are so hard. Diamonds will get dirty over time and lose some of the sparkle that they originally had when you first wore it, but there are things that you can do to keep it sparkling for years to come and you can even get it cleaned to bring it back to life. If you do look after your ring though you are not going to have to get it cleaned anywhere near as much, so it is worth looking after it to keep it sparkling.

Looking after your Diamonds

Just because, diamonds are so hard, it does not mean they cannot be come dirty and tarnished over time. Think about what your hands do every day and where they go, the chemicals and the elements which they come into contact with.
  • Detergents
  • Chlorine
  • Cleaning Products 
  • Mud
If you look after your ring when you are doing various everyday chores, then it will help to keep your diamond clean. Take your ring off when you are sleeping, when you do the washing up or cleaning. If you go swimming a lot make sure you do not go in the swimming pool with it on as the chlorine can have an effect on the diamond. Try not to get it in contact with any liquids or any other material, and your diamond ring will stay clean and sparkling for a lot longer. Some chemical can tarnish a ring and cannot be undone when damaged. Although a professional service will be able to polish the diamond to bring back some of the shine, you may be hard pressed to get anything like the original state of them if they have been tarnished.

Professional Cleaning

You may have bought wholesale diamonds from Brisbane, diamond earrings from your local high street or from a vendor on your last holiday abroad. Where ever you got your diamond from you will still need to have it cleaned from time to time. A great way to get them sparkling like new is to go to a professional cleaning service which specializes in cleaning and polishing precious metals and also precious stones as well as diamonds. You will find that a lot of jewelers in your high street will also offer this service. Some will charge you a nominal fee to do this, and some will actually do it free of charge. They will use a polishing machine to clean of any dirt and grime as well as polish the metal and stones to a very high sheen. The service does not take long, and before you know it you will be dazzled by how clean your diamonds are looking like the first day you wore them.

DIY Diamond Cleaning

You can also clean your diamonds yourself if you are so inclined. This can be done quite easily at home, and if done properly you will not damage the diamond at all. You will need to get yourself some mild washing up liquid. Any brand will do really as long as it is mild. Pour some warm water and put some washing up liquid in as well. Place the ring in the warm solution and let it soak for a couple of minutes. Then take your ring out of the solution and use a soft toothbrush and work out all of the dirt and grease out of the little crevices. 

Rinse the diamond jewellery in the solution and repeat the process a couple of times. When you have finished cleaning the ring, rinse it in some warm water and get rid of all of the detergent. You will then need to blot the jewellery dry using a cloth which does not have any lint on it. You can then use a soft cloth and give the metal a little polish, and your diamond jewellery should be looking close to brand new. All it takes is a couple of minutes and you have saved yourself the expense of getting it done professionally.
