An engagement ring is a symbol of love and commitment, intended to last a lifetime. Caring for your Diamond Engagement Rings is extremely important, and like all good things, it requires a little maintenance to keeps its sparkle. There are a lot of old wives’ tales relating to the effective ways to clean a wedding and engagement ring, but some of these methods are outdated and could damage your jewellery.
- The safest and easiest way to clean your diamond ring is to soak it in very warm water using washing up liquid. Let it soak for 20-40 minutes, and then gently scrub with a small, soft toothbrush, particularly the underside of the stones where residue tends to build up. Repeat this process if needed.
- Diamond is the hardest naturally occurring substance on earth, they can cause damage to jewels or even to another diamond, so remember to keep your precious diamond ring in a separate box to other jewellery items.
- Caring for a ring is crucial to maintain its glow, always handle your ring using the band, not the setting or stone. Take it off at night and while swimming, make sure to wear gloves or better still, take it off when washing dishes, gardening or hitting the gym.
- Blot the Diamond Engagement Ring dry with a soft clean cloth dry after cleaning; once a week should keep it looking it’s best
