Rings accumulating dirt and grime is a natural result of being worn daily. This article will provide some insight into how rings are cleaned and, in addition, provide some helpful tips that you can follow to keep your diamond engagement ring and jewellery looking like new.
DIRTY LOOKING JEWELLERY- WHY?
There are a myriad different ways dirt and grime build up in your ring, but by far, the most common reason is that diamonds tend to attract oil and grease that results from the use of hand creams, body lotions, moisturisers, and sunscreens. As the oils and emulsion coat your diamond, the sparkle and brilliance of your diamond and jewellery will be muted. In addition, the grease that gets into the nook and crannies of your ring will be more likely to attract dust and dirt, further diminishing your ring’s appearance
THE MOST PRACTICAL AND EASIEST WAY TO CLEAN YOUR JEWELLERY AND DIAMOND RING.
First, let’s start with the simplest, but nonetheless very effective, method. We recommend this tip because it is the easiest and the most convenient way to clean your diamond ring and jewellery at home without requiring any specialised or expensive tools. First, fill a cup with warm water, followed by a drop or two of regular dishwashing liquid. Next, use a soft toothbrush to gently but thoroughly clean your jewellery, taking extra care to not miss the spot underneath the diamond. Not only is this cleaning method home friendly but also very quick, taking just 10 to 40 seconds to clean, depending on how dirty it is.
Tip: Regularly cleaning the ring and jewellery is fine as long as care is taken to avoid leaving scratches by brushing gently.
Tip: If you haven´t cleaned your ring or jewellery in a while or if there is a substantial accumulation of dirt or grease, there is no need to panic. Simply soak it in boiling water with some dishwashing liquid for 5 minutes before brushing it.
