    The best way to wash a diamond ring is to take it to a Jeweler and let them clean it for you. I don't think it will be harmed in your pants pocket but don't make a habit of doing that While diamond is the hardest stuff around the metals it is surrounded by can break and you could loose it during the washing cycle. Yes its ok to wash your hands while wearing your ring.

    It should be fine, but I would take it to a jewelry store to make sure the prongs that hold the diamond in place are not damaged. It is a good idea to do this every few years anyway. I had one friend that lost their diamond this way. If you take it back to the place you purchased it they might do it for free.

    Not sure about wearing it while you are washing the dishes. Probably best to wear gloves while you are doing the dishes. This will keep it safe and your hands dry and cool.

    I wouldn't. Try and keep it as "unaltered" as possible from the original state of purchase as to not encourage discoloration or disassembly. At least that's what my coach tells me about my jockstrap. So diamonds should be similar.

    It will be fine:)

    And it is okay to wash your hands with it on.

    the best way to clean your ring is warm water, soap, and scrub it with a tooth brush:)

    Hope I helped:)

    Well, it's safe to wash my dildos in the dishwasher, so I assume diamonds are safe too.
