Cleaning Diamond Rings


Sparkling diamond rings on everyone’s finger are a total attention grabber, but at the same time, they always take dirt easily from everyday wear. In order to keep your very precious piece of diamond rings twinkling, make sure that the diamond, and the ring itself are completely free from dirt and dust. Instead of taking your diamond rings to the jeweler and using difficult solutions, clean them at home every week in a very simple way, by using household products. Follow the steps below in order to keep your precious diamond rings clean and shiny.


Prepare the area for cleaning your ring: Always clean your diamond rings and other pieces of jewelry away from open drains. For this thing, use a large, flat surface, like a kitchen table. Make sure that you have all your stuff ready before you begin. These stuff include: bowls, cleaners, cloths, and other tools.

Soak the ring: Fill a glass bowl with an amount of 1/4 cup ammonia, and 1 cup of warm water. Let your diamond ring stay in the solution for about 15 to 20 minutes to lose dirt and grease. Make sure to use the ammonia only in a very well and fresh area. 

Prepare the soap for cleaning: While your diamond ring is soaking in the ammonia, prepare a mixture of one cup of warm water and 1/2 teaspoon mild dish soap in another glass bowl, and stir it with a spoon to combine the mixture. Wear your rubber gloves, remove the diamond ring from the ammonia, and place it into the soapy water. Swish it around in the soapy water for 10 to 15 seconds in order to clean all the ammonia solution.

Brush the ring: Take your diamond ring out of the soapy water and brush the setting with a soft toothbrush to remove any remaining dirt. Be careful to brush very gently so that the bristles do not loosen the diamond or scratch the metal.

Rinse and dry the jewelry: Finally fill the third bowl with warm water and dip your diamond ring into it for 4 or 5 minutes for the final rinse. Dry your ring with a lint-free cloth. Remember not to air dry your ring, as this may leave strong water spots on the diamond.
