Jewelry is often a symbol of love, and engagement rings are no different. You wear it every day and want to keep it shiny and new.
But how can you clean your ring without damaging the precious stones? We’ll show you three different cleaning methods that will help keep your ring sparkling for years to come.
How to clean engagement rings – step by step:
To clean your ring, use baking soda.
- Take a small piece of baking soda and wrap it in a soft cloth to create a makeshift “brush.”
- Dip the brush in water, then use it to scrub your engagement ring gently. Avoid applying too much pressure or rubbing your ring too vigorously to avoid scratching the surface.
- Rinse well with warm water, careful not to get caught on any other jewelry. Dry with a soft cloth if necessary.
You can use vinegar or alcohol to clean your clean engagement ring.
You can also use vinegar or alcohol to clean your clean engagement ring. Be careful with how much you use, as it can damage the stone if too much gets on it.
Dip a cotton swab into some cleaning solution and gently wipe away any grime from the stone. Use a soft cloth to wipe dry after you’re done.
Keep the ring from sitting in water for long periods since this could lead to rusting or tarnishing.
You can use a store-bought cleaner to clean your ring.
You can use a store-bought cleaner to clean your engagement ring. You can also use a soft toothbrush to scrub the call if you’d like.
Your engagement ring should be cleaned regularly and as often as necessary, depending on how much you wear it.
If you don’t wear your engagement ring often, you should clean it more frequently.
Bring your ring to a jeweler for a professional cleaning.
If your engagement ring looks a little dull, or if you’re considering taking it off for any reason, bring it to a jeweler for a professional cleaning.
Jewelers are trained to clean the jewelry and can tell you if any damage needs to be repaired. They also know what resizing is needed on specific rings, and they can take care of any other issues that may arise with your precious piece.
Instead of picking one of these methods, you should do all three monthly.
To keep your ring sparkling, use all three methods monthly. If you want to make your own, combine the baking soda and water in a small bowl and stir until the paste forms. Apply the paste to your ring using an old toothbrush or cotton swab and allow it to sit for five minutes before rinsing it with warm water.
Next, mix one vinegar with two parts water in another small bowl (use more vinegar if you have a filthy ring).
Soak a clean cloth in this mixture and gently wipe down all sides of your engagement ring. Then, rinse with warm water before drying off all surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth or towel.
Finally! Add a few drops to each bowl described above for additional cleaning power! You can use plain rubbing alcohol on top of everything else if needed.
You should be able to clean engagement rings without much hassle. Take it to a jeweler or purchase cleaner from them so they can assist you; this is the best course of action.
