How To Clean A Diamond Ring In 3 Easy Steps?

Your diamond ring goes everywhere with you and can accumulate a lot of dirt and strange particles, which can make your ring look old and dull. More importantly, it can accumulate bacteria, which can cause skin irritations. Cleaning your diamond ring is a must. Here we explain to you in 3 easy steps how you can clean your ring at home.

Do not use harsh cleaning chemicals when cleaning your rings, such as bleach, acetone, or chlorine. Harsh chemicals can cause damage and make your ring look dull. Keep in mind that if you use chemicals to clean your home, it is important that you remove your diamond ring.

Do not forget to take it off if you are going to be doing any hand-heavy activity as this too can cause damage, not only to the diamond but also to the band.

Step 1: Take a close look

Step 1: Take a close look

Have a good look at your ring. Is it dirty from just everyday use such as makeup or was the dirt caused by paint or chemicals? For tougher grime, it might be a good idea to have it cleaned by a professional jeweler.

Step 2: Soak your ring

Step 2: Soak your ring

The very first thing to do is soak your ring. This is a step that should not be overlooked. Soaking helps to remove grease build-up and facilitates the cleaning process we are about to mention in step 3. You can make your own cleaning solution at home. Use warm or hot water and dish soap. We recommend mild or organic dish soap. Soak the ring in the solution for at least 15 minutes.

Step 3: Grab a toothbrush

After soaking the ring in your homemade solution, take a toothbrush, the softer the better. Using the toothbrush, gently scrub away any dirt or grease that was not removed in step 2. Scrub the ring and diamond with caution, as to not cause any damage. You do not want to leave bristle marks on the band and although diamonds are sturdy objects, they can easily chip or even fall out if not handled properly.
