Full Answer

After the diamond earrings have soaked in the warm water and detergent solution, they can be lightly scrubbed with a soft brush, such as a soft-bristled toothbrush. The cleaner should absolutely avoid using metal brushes, steel wool or other abrasive cleaning products that can scratch the stone and the metal setting. The earrings should then be carefully rinsed under clean water and dried with a soft cloth.

    In order to remove stuck earrings, make sure hands are washed with antibacterial soap, then apply a small amount of lubricating jelly to the earring back and attempt to gently turn the back to loosen it while holding the front of the earring in place.
