Jewellery Repair – Restoring the Lustre to Your Diamond Ring

lazy - Maddisons UK

Diamond rings symbolise the most important relationships we have as people, with engagements and weddings by far the most popular use for this kind of jewellery. Now, whilst diamond is the hardest substance on earth due to being made from pure carbon, it doesn’t stop it from getting dirty and when that happens, jewellers tools are just what you need to restore its lustre. 

The jewellery repair we’re talking about in this article may fall into the cleaning category more than actually having to fix something, but when you see the difference it makes, it’s profound enough to seem like you’ve repaired it! What we’re talking about here is the Connoisseurs Diamond Dazzle Stik which really does make diamond gleam again.

A Simple Three-Step Restoration Job

Perhaps the best thing about the Dazzle Stik is that it’s about as simple to use as it gets, so you don’t need any kind of jewellery repair or cleaning experience to use it. Its innovative ‘pen’ design makes it easy to use – even if you are a novice. Let’s see how it’s done!

Step One

Get your dulled diamond ring or other precious stone jewellery and your Dazzle Stik, take off its lid and wet the end of its white bristles. Then twist the silver end of the stick until some of the cleaning gel comes out – not too much, just a small pea-sized amount to get you started.

Step Two

Brush over the diamonds for about a minute, ensuring that you don’t forget to cover the area underneath your ring’s setting (if you’re cleaning a ring!). Once you’re happy that you’ve given it a good scrub, then it’s time to move on to step 3.

Step Three

Rinse off the lather and dry the ring. Give it a good rub with a good quality polishing cloth and you should see that your old diamond is very much back to its old self with the lustre that made you choose it in the first place! It’s a simple three-step process that restores pretty much any diamond jewellery. 

As you can see, with the dazzle stik as part of your collection of jewellers tools you can restore lustre and gleam to pretty much any precious stone rings, ear-rings or anything else with a diamond set into it. So, no more expensive trips to your local jewellers to get your wedding ring cleaned!
