YOUR diamond ring is probably your prized possession, and most people wear their engagement rings every single day. So how do you clean a diamond ring?
Diamond rings can go from sparkling to cloudy the longer you have them. Cleaning your ring on a regular basis will keep your delicate ring safely in tact and looking as good as new.
Tom Burstein, Christie’s international jewelry director told Vogue that you need to clean your ring at least once every few weeks.
He said: “Buildup of dirt or oil will block the light interactions in the stone, so there’s no point in having a beautifully cut diamond if it’s going to be dirty.”
His number one tip is to avoid washing your ring in the sink. If you do, cover the drain! You should also leave ring dishes around the house and only ever put your ring in the dish– that way, you never lose it!
You might have heard that baking soda, toothpaste, or chemicals such as bleach or chlorine will do the job. Never use these harsh products on your ring! These are abrasive and will leave your ring with a ‘fuzzy’ appearance. Good old soap and water will do the trick, you don’t need to purchase anything fancy.
