- Step 1. Fill a tiny bucket or glass with hot water. This water should be lukewarm rather than too hot for the hands to touch. Never use the kitchen sink basin with an obstructed drain for this purpose because you do not want your cherished property to be lost down the drain.
- Step 2. Pour some detergent into the warm water and mix well. You merely need to employ a really small amount of detergent to make the solution slightly soapy.
- Step 3. Place your diamonds in the soapy water to soak for around 10 minutes. This gives sufficient time for just about any built-up grime to break down and allows for easy removal.
- Step 4. Fill another bucket with hot water and add a tiny amount of ammonia-based glass cleaner solution. NEVER use chlorine based cleaners because they could chemically react with some metals in the earrings.
- Step 5.
If you head into a purchase with no knowledge of diamonds, you could pay a lot more than you need to. It’s well worth taking the time to educate yourself a little, as this will make it more likely that you will get the best diamond at the best possible price.

Things that might indicate the pearl has been artificially coloured include:
- colour seemingly “wearing off” the outer shell;
- a very dark core (indication of possible irradiation to change colours);
- a very visible stratification of colour change on the inside of the pearl.
The final two above assume your pearl has a drill hole that you can look into with magnification.
Examine the regularity and symmetry of shape
Tiny irregularities of shape can be seen or felt – and that’s typically a good sign!
If your pearl is perfectly round and perfectly smooth over its surface, then you’re probably looking at an artificial not natural (whether wild or cultured) pearl made from synthetic materials.
However, even if … Read the rest
