I don’t have an emerald cut so I don’t know if they show dirt more, but they might, since they show inclusions more. However, diamonds themselves, I’ve noticed they tend to stay cleaner than many other stones.

Do you wear it when cooking, or moisturizing your hands? It may be that. I usually take mine off for “messy stuff”.

@debbieotoole:  Diamonds attract oil and dirt.  I have an emerald cut, and you’re right they do seem to show the dirt more than other shapes. I think it’s because they have more of a reflective quality than other diamonds. The sparkle of other diamonds seems to hide the dirt more so it isn’t so noticable.

I clean mine weekly. I even have a reminder set on my Outlook.
