It’s no secret that cleaning your engagement ring regularly is one of the best ways to keep it looking like new. However, finding the best ring cleaner for your specific precious gemstones and metal can be tricky. There are many different methods to choose from, and the one you should use depends on your ring’s materials and how much wear and tear it gets.
Using the right jewelry cleaner can also help you avoid any damage to your ring’s setting or stones. For example, harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners can damage the base metal of your ring or leave scratches on the surface of your gems. In addition, if your diamond ring is set with softer gems like rubies or sapphires, these types of cleaners can cause them to dull.
The easiest way to clean your ring is to soak it in a solution of mild liquid dish soap and warm (but not hot) water. Soak it for a few minutes to remove any residue and gently scrub with a soft toothbrush to loosen any stuck on dirt or debris. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
We recommend soaking your ring once a week to keep everyday residue at bay. It’s also a good idea to take it into your local jeweler for a professional ultrasonic cleaning at least twice a year to ensure it stays looking beautiful and keeps your precious gemstones sparkling brightly.
