A lot of people believe that myth that your diamond should be cleaned with a brush and a bit of toothpaste. It may work, but it has nothing to do with the toothpaste – you could just use the brush and that would work. However, it doesn’t work as efficiently as putting it in to a pan of boiling water. Just put your ring in there for five minutes or so and the diamond will sparkle like new.
WARNING! This process must only be used with diamonds. Other stones are weaker and they may crack.
