Cleaning your diamond ring regularly is absolutely essential to maintain its gorgeous sparkle and luster. Diamonds DO get dirty, but luckily, they are very easy to clean!
Here's a step-by-step guide to help you keep your stunning diamond in pristine condition, along with a few care tips!
Step 1: Gather The Essentials
It doesn't take much to get your ring back to its sparkling condition! Simply grab a small bowl or dish. If you don't have any jewelry cleaner, pour some Windex or dawn dish-soap into the bowl with some warm water.
Use a soft bristled toothbrush. Do not just use any brush with rough bristles, because it can scratch your ring if used repeatedly.
Finally, grab a lint-free cloth. If you don't have one, a paper towel can work just fine.
Step 2: Soak
Place your diamond ring in the bowl of the cleaning solution and let it soak for about 20-30 minutes. This will help loosen any dirt, oil, or debris that might have built up on the surface or under the diamond.
Step 3: Brush
After soaking for up to 30 minutes, take the soft-bristled toothbrush and gently scrub the ring. paying attention to hard-to-reach areas, like beneath the diamond or around the prongs. The soft brush will dislodge any remaining dirt without scratching the metal.
Step 4: Rinse
Once you've brushed the ring thoroughly, rinse it under gentle, warm running water to rinse off any soap residue.
Be sure to use a sink strainer or close the drain to prevent the ring from accidentally slipping down the sink. That would be horrible!
Step 5: Dry
Carefully pat the ring dry using a lint-free cloth or your handy paper towel! We recommend a lint free cloth to avoid any fabric particles getting caught in the setting of your ring!
Now, you should have an extra sparkly diamond, almost like brand new!
How often should I clean my diamond ring?
I suggest cleaning your diamond ring once a week, just to ensure your diamond is extra sparkly and always looking the best it can! Cleaning your ring, gently and carefully with this method, will not damage your diamond or setting, so don't hesitate to keep it as clean as possible!
How to prevent your ring from getting EXTRA dirty:
- Avoid intense, sweaty exercise, or heavy weight lifting while wearing your diamond ring. This can easily scratch your gorgeous ring, which you do not want!
- Avoid applying lotion while wear your diamond jewelry! Lotion will QUICKLY build up and will make your diamond look dull, even if it is not! It is always worth the time to take your ring off, before you apply lotion, trust me.
- Remember, your diamond jewelry is not indestructible! Be mindful and gentle with your jewelry!
