How Long Do Diamond Rings Last?

Diamonds are known for their durability. They are one of the hardest materials on earth, making them an ideal choice for jewellery. With proper care, your diamond ring can last a lifetime and beyond. Diamonds are resistant to wear and tear and can withstand exposure to the elements. However, it’s important to remember that the other components of the ring, such as the metal and setting, can wear and deteriorate over time.

To extend the life of your diamond ring, it’s important to have it inspected and cleaned regularly. A professional jeweller can check for any damage or wear and replace any worn parts as needed. Regular cleaning with a soft cloth and warm water can also help maintain the shine and lustre of your diamond ring.

Additionally, it’s essential to store your diamond ring in a safe place when not wearing it to protect it from scratches and damage. Avoid exposing your diamond ring to harsh chemicals, and remove it when cleaning or participating in activities that may put it at risk.

Can Diamond Rings Get Wet?


Yes, diamond rings can get wet, but it’s important to be mindful of how you handle them when they are exposed to water. While diamonds are durable and can withstand exposure to water, it’s essential to take proper care to protect your diamond ring.

When it comes to cleaning, it’s best to avoid using harsh chemicals, such as bleach or ammonia, which can cause damage to the metal and other components of the ring. Instead, opt for a mild soap and warm water, and be sure to dry your diamond ring thoroughly after cleaning.

If you plan on swimming or engaging in water-based activities, it’s recommended to remove your diamond ring beforehand. Chlorine in pools and hot tubs can cause damage to the metal and the diamond itself, so it’s best to avoid exposing your ring to these substances.

In the event that your diamond ring does get wet, it’s important to dry it off as soon as possible. Water can cause damage over time, especially if the ring is not properly dried, so it’s best to take preventative measures to protect your ring.

Can Diamond Rings Scratch?


Diamonds are one of the hardest substances on earth, but despite their hardness, they can still scratch. Diamonds are rated 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, which measures the resistance of a material to scratching. 

Everyday wear and tear can cause small scratches on your diamond ring. For example, if you wear your ring while doing household chores or if you wear it while playing sports, it may come into contact with rough surfaces that can cause scratches. Even everyday activities like putting on and taking off your jewellery can cause scratches over time.

To avoid scratches on your diamond ring, it’s important to store it properly when not wearing it. Keep your diamond ring in a safe place, away from other jewellery that could cause scratches. It’s also a good idea to avoid exposing your diamond ring to rough surfaces, such as concrete or tile.
