Only a few things in life are better than watching your diamond engagement ring catch and reflect light, making the rays sparkle and dance in front of your eyes. However, when everyday use builds up layers of unwanted debris, oil, and other sorts of residue, your ring loses its luster. It becomes dull, it looks old and even becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, which can result in a skin infection.
If you want to keep your ring glittering, you’ll need to maintain it regularly. Here’s all you need to know about how to maintain your diamond ring.
If you want to clean your diamond ring, the first step is getting some plain ol' trusty soap and water. Pour warm water in a small bowl, and a sprinkle of dish soap. Soak your ring in the solution for 20 minutes, as it'll help decrease your ring. Doing this will help get rid of residues such as hairspray, lotion, dirt, and other sorts of grime. After you soak your ring, take it out and clean it gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush. This will help in removing excess oil and dirt, leaving your ring sparkling for the gods!
If your ring is an antique piece, we cannot stress enough about how gently you should handle it. When the prongs that hold your diamond in place become loose, it can result in your diamond falling off! If you apply too much pressure while cleaning with a toothbrush, it can mess with the setting of the diamond, and nobody wants that. Remember to scrub gently, and dry off with a soft, lint-free cloth.
If you use harmful chemicals on your ring, chances are you'll damage it beyond repair! Never use household cleaners like toothpaste, baking soda bleach, chlorine, and acetone. These chemicals can cause damage to the metals used to alloy gold for diamond settings in your ring and can scratch the gold and other metals.
If you want to use ultrasonic cleaners, we recommend that you do so with caution. These cleaners send low-frequency sound waves through a solution and remove dirt and grime from your diamonds, however, they can also easily chip mountings and girdles of diamonds, especially if you have a two or three-tone ring. Your diamonds can fall off or become loose, which can damage your ring greatly.
Keep At It
To keep your ring binging, you'll need to make regular cleaning and maintenance a habit. You don't need to go overboard and clean it every day, but at least try to clean it maybe once or twice a week. Doing so will allow the ring to maintain its luster and let you flaunt it like it's new decades down the line!
If you’d like a deep-cleaning maybe once a year, you can take your ring to a professional jeweler and have them clean it for you.
