Apr 20, 2008
People in the diamond industry will know that when buying wholesale diamonds, there are many things to consider. The diamond business has long since been a big business for those specialising in jewellery designing and manufacturing. The average person is familiar with diamonds as an exquisite piece of jewellery, most famous for its purposes in impressing a loved one and when proposing to that loved one for the first time.

Wholesale diamonds is not just used for people in the jewellery and gifts business. This is also part of many different aspects of the world, particularly in technology. Diamonds are widely used for its hardness and naturally tough mineralogical properties as they are made from pure carbon atoms. These make for good substances for use in technological equipments, as they have lasting properties and good durability. Keeping your diamond well maintained is something that requires plenty of time and effort.

Without the right knowledge on keeping your diamond preserved, you could lose the quality of your diamond rapidly. Many people make the mistake in buying wholesale diamonds at a high quality, without realising just how important it is to keep them well preserved before going on to selling them. Even though the diamond is the toughest piece of gem, with it still being capable of holding its own in burning temperatures of up to 1292 degrees Fahrenheit before it starts to burn, a mere oil smear could lead to dirt and dust to gather and lose its shining sparkle.

The best way to keep your diamonds from losing its sparkle is by handling the gem as little as possible. This may sound near impossible if you are wearing a diamond set ring, but often you can neglect the quality of your diamond and some people are unaware of how to maintain their jewellery. In this instance it would be a good idea to seek advice from an expert, who will give you clear instructions on how to keep that sparkle in your diamond ring.

To keep the original quality as much as you can on your ring, try cleaning your diamond in soap and water, allowing the jewel to air dry and pat with a very soft cloth. For removing dirt from the crevices, dry using a worn out old tooth brush with soft bristles and gently rubbing off the dirt. If possible, you could try using a weak ammonia and water solution using a very soft bristled brush to clean the diamond.

Professional maintenance use ultrasound and steam method. The ultrasound method may affect the clarity of your diamond, and/or cause the stone to fall out its setting. Be sure to warn them in advance to take great care and check that the clarity of your diamond has not already been affected. For diamonds in a metal setting, extra care will need to be taken as some metals such as gold can scratch easily.

When buying loose diamonds wholesale, they will need to be handled with extra care. This can be achieve by keeping them stored in a very soft cloth pouches individually, keeping them together in one pouch with result in them rubbing together and chipping. There are specific settings that keep them from losing their quality, and will save time for you from the maintenance process. It is a good idea to understand these settings, which will help with keeping them lasting for a long period.
