Louily Jewelry suggests using a gentle dish detergent to clean lotion buildup from the bottom of the mounting. Simply scrub the top and bottom with a soft toothbrush and rinse several times in hot water. For extra shine, soak your ring in a small bowl of ammonia diluted with three times the amount of water, and gently brush the top and bottom of the mounting with a soft toothbrush. Dip the ring into the solution again, then rinse in warm water several times to be sure to get all of the solution off. You may set the ring on a soft towel to dry, or gently pat it dry.
NOTE: IF YOU DO THIS OVER AN OPEN DRAIN, USE A STRAINER!
Sona Simulated Diamond Maintenance
Everything needs maintenance, people need maintenance, and so do stones. In order for our jewelry to continue to shine, we need to know how to care for our stones.
Method #1: Do not bump into hard objects and do not wear with them.
Because sona simulated diamond is second only to diamond in hardness, sona simulated diamond is prone to scratching other jewelry. Although sona simulated diamond is hard, it is also brittle and can be shattered by violent impacts. For this reason, you should avoid bumping sona simulated diamond and wearing it with other stones.
Method #2: Do not expose sona simulated diamond to high temperatures and sunlight.
Exposure to high temperatures will cause the internal structural molecules of sona simulated diamond to expand, causing cracks to appear on the surface of sona simulated diamond, which in turn will cause stone to fracture, a principle of "thermal expansion and contraction" that is easy to understand. For this reason, you should keep it away from high temperature heat sources.
Method #3: do not touch acid and alkaline chemicals.
Acid and alkaline chemicals are corrosive, and the surface of sona simulated diamond stone is susceptible to these corrosive substances, which can reduce the brightness of your sona simulated diamond. At the same time, the internal structural molecules of moissanite may be damaged, resulting in the loose and brittle texture of sona simulated diamond. For this reason, you should avoid contacting sona simulated diamond with items containing acidic or alkaline chemicals such as cosmetics.
Method #4: Regular Cleaning
All gemstones require regular cleaning, and so does sona simulated diamond, which is oleophilic and susceptible to oil contamination. If you wear your sona simulated diamond every day, it is best to clean it every two weeks. A common cleaning method is to use a soft brush while rinsing with water. For better cleaning results, use a neutral conditioner for the stone.
