💎 Diamonds are the hardest material on earth: 58 times harder than anything else in nature.⁠

💎 “LUCY” IN THE SKY - Fifty light years from earth, this star is a 10 billion-trillion-trillion carat diamond.⁠

💎 The 4Cs, created by GIA, are considered the global language of diamond quality. (Clarity, Color, Cut, Carat Weight)⁠

💎 Diamond is the only gem composed of one single element: carbon.⁠

💎 Most diamonds formed more than a billion years ago, deep in the earth’s mantle.⁠

Care & Cleaning

  • Diamonds are easy to clean. All you need is warm water, a soft toothbrush, and mild soap.
  • Do not use toothpaste to clean diamonds.
  • Soak your diamonds in soapy water for a few minutes and gently clean them with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Along with the face of the diamond, also clean the back where dirt is easily accumulated.
  • You can then wipe it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
