Best household cleaners for platinum/diamond engagement ring?

I seem to remember that you can soak the ring in alcohol or white vinegar…..or will these corrode / damage it?

I wouldn’t use anything except a commercial jewelry cleaner specifically safe for platinum and diamonds. I think toothpaste works great, to be honest (rub it into the diamond and band with an old toothbrush). Your diamonds will sparkle.

An engagement ring is hopefully something that a bride will wear forever, and as such, it should encapsulate her personality, so that regardless of the shifting of fashions, it will remain something that she loves and treasures.

An increasing popular choice for engagement and wedding rings is platinum. One of the rarest of the precious metals, it is strong and sturdy, with a subtle style that is the perfect accompaniment to any precious stone. It is the unique combination of simplicity and luster that have made the choice of a diamond engagement ring in platinum increasingly popular, as its wonderful sheen sets off the cut and brilliance of a diamond beautifully.

The popularity of diamond engagement rings in platinum is also due to that materialÂ’s eminent practicality.

Platinum doesnÂ’t tarnish, and for those with sensitive skin, it is also hypoallergenic, making it comfortable to wear.

The sturdiness and durability of platinum make it a popular choice for menÂ’s rings, but its simple understated beauty lends itself to diamond engagement rings also. Platinum is the perfect choice for those who prefer the look of white gold to yellow, and its durable nature makes it the perfect compliment to the enduring beauty of a diamond.

A diamond engagement ring in platinum combines beauty and durability in a unique package. The rarity of platinum compliments perfectly the uniqueness of each diamond, ensuring that a platinum diamond engagement ring will be a unique symbol as peerless as your love.

Platinum wedding rings are rings that represent commitment and undying love, and are made of platinum. If you are looking for platinum wedding rings, make sure they are 95% pure platinum and have a long porosity. This is important because it means that the ring is strong and will last for ages. Platinum wedding rings are classified as traditional and designer and come in Florentine, hammered, satin, sandstone or shiny finishes.

Platinum bands are the most popular because of the high quality and number of designs available. Some popular designs include the Celtic Knot, Greek Key, Etruscan and engraved. When buying platinum wedding rings, it is important to understand what platinum is. Theoretically speaking, platinum is considered by many to be the most precious metal. Some experts say that it is the best metal because of its rarity, strength and endurance. That’s why it remains the top choice of jewelry designers.

It is because of these outstanding qualities that platinum is somewhat expensive as compared to gold. In addition, platinum is extremely dense and is much heavier than gold and silver. But what makes platinum stand apart from other metals is its durability. As a result, platinum does not wear or tarnish, as do other metals. Unlike gold that has to shined and cleaned to keep it looking good, platinum maintains its white appearance without maintenance. Though platinum can scratch, it is not susceptible to problems like stress cracking or corrosion. Also, scratches can easily be removed by process called buffing.

Tanzanite is one of the more recently discovered gemstones. Discovered in 1967 in the African nation of Tanzania by Masaai herdsman walking past Mount Kilimanjaro. The herdsmen took the stones into the nearest town, Arusha where they were thought to be Sapphire. On further testing however, it was revealed that the stones were not Sapphire at all but something never seen before. Since this discovery over 40 years ago, the only known deposit of Tanzanite remains on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Tiffany and Company in New York got ahold of some samples of the new stone and their chief gemologist at the time, Harry Platt, fell in love with it. Throughout the 1970′s Tanzanite was exclusively marketed by Tiffany’s. As the stone was only available to a very small portion of the market as a result of this marketing arrangement, the price stayed fairly low without consumer demand to drive them upwards. This exclusivity was relinquished in the 1980′s however, allowing for greater market exposure and Tanzanite gained rapidly in popularity. As demand increased so did supply and eventually supply levels neared demand levels and prices leveled after a long period of appreciation. A “Tanzanite Gold Rush” was already in full swing and this had the effect of pushing supply levels above demand and around the mid 1980′s prices had peaked and then started dropping. Tanzanite, now priced much lower than that Tiffany’s had tried to introduce it to the market at, became the new darling of the gem industry.

Towards the end of the 1980′s there was a clear distribution channel in place from Africa through the cutting markets of Germany and then on to the USA market for selling. Tanzanite’s popularity continued to rise with the German industry pushing hard behind it. It reached its height of popularity in the 1990′s when new pockets were discovered in Mining Blocks B and C (The Tanzanite mining area is divided into 4 blocks A,B,C,D). These new pockets really increased the availability of the finest material which was, and still is, very rare (less than 1% of all Tanzanite mined). This also helped to market the stone as a premium gemstone in the market by appealing more to the high end of the market.

However, prices continued to drop as rampant mining continued and the Tanzanian government tried to stem the decline by forceably closing some of the mines. This had the desired effect and Tanzanite prices started to rise once more and by 1995 dealers from all over the world, but most especially from the US market were flocking to Tanzania to buy up whatever they could pushing prices still higher. Towards the end of the decade Tanzanite was widely regarded to be the single hottest selling gemstone, outselling all colored stones except ruby, emerald and sapphire.

The next price blip occurred in 1998. The El Nino rains which pounded the continent flooded the mines, causing the death of 100 independent miners. The tragedy had the effect of shutting down all active production at the mines and the market was very slow to recover. Although the mines gradually reopened, the collapse made it very difficult to mine effectively and production was a refraction of what it was previously and prices rose steadily again as demand once more outstripped supply.

In the early part of the new century the Tanzanian government allowed a South African Mining company called Afgem to buy an exclusive lease to Block C. Today, this lease is owned and operated by Tanzanite One Ltd an offshoot of Afgem. Their stated objective is to use a De Beers business model to control supply and market heavily to the consumer to create a “pull effect” in the market. They are using De Beers long term “Sightholder” distribution system strategy. Ultimately, this is driving prices further upward as the effects of increased and targeted marketing bears fruit.

During the past 5 years, prices have been on the increase. It is impossible to tell where the prices of Tanzanite will go in the future. However, it is noteworthy that the production mix has dramatically changed in the past few years and production of the finest material has declined by 80%. This is the so-called investment grade. Prices continue to rise for this material, whereas the market for medium grade pieces is stable. Extra fine goods are now very scarce.

The active production life of the Tanzanite deposits is now estimated at less than 10 years. Demand is currently stable and rising as designers and manufacturers continue to work with and promote the stone. Only time will tell where Tanzanite prices will go from here. Much speculation sees them rising in tandem with increasingly smaller supply, especially for the very fine pieces which are already very scarce.

Everybody knows that “diamond are a girlÂ’s best friend,” but only a few know the true value of a diamond. The value of a diamond can be judged by four factors — color, cut, clarity and carat. It is very important to take these factors into consideration when buying platinum diamond wedding rings.

In theory, a carat can be defined as a unit of weight for gemstones. One carat equals 1/5 of a gram. Carats are partitioned into 100 units that are termed points. One carat is divided into 100 points. Always remember that a carat is a unit of weight, not a unit of size.

Though, the clarity and color of a diamond are usually rated, scales are not uniform. There is always some doubt regarding the clarity and color of a diamond. ThatÂ’s why it is worthwhile to have an idea as to how scale and grade signify the color or clarity of the diamond you are considering buying.

A diamond can be termed as perfect if it satisfies one condition. The condition is there should be no visible surface in the diamond when viewed under 10-power magnification by a skilled diamond grader.

When buying platinum diamond wedding rings, always opt for whitest white diamond. The reflecting and refracting power of a diamond is totally dependent on its whiteness. In other words, the whiter the color the more it will reflect and refract light. According to experts, when white light enters the diamond part of the ray is reflected back and the rest penetrates the stone. Color differences are impossible to determine by the untrained eye, so always opt for gemologists in this regard.
