    How to Clean Your Diamond At Home

    Posted On December 11, 2018

    Diamonds often have a hefty price tag upon them no matter how many inclusions they have. As a diamond is one of the most prized possessions you will own, it’s important that you take care of your engagement ring.

    It is highly recommended to get your jewellery professionally cleaned to preserve its quality, but it’s equally important to maintain it on a daily basis. Here are a few tips to using products available at home to make sure your ring looks pristine.

    Materials That You’ll Need:

    • Warm water
    • Small bowl
    • Soft-bristle toothbrush
    • Dishwashing soap

    How You’ll Do It:

    First off, heat some water in a bowl. Make sure that the temperature is a bit hotter than lukewarm but not boiling hot. After that, add dishwashing liquid to create that soapy lather.

    If you don’t have any dishwashing liquid, feel free to use hand soap, shampoo, or even a body wash. Stay clear of any soap that uses moisturizers as it damages the gemstone. Moisturizers are abrasive and leave a film on the diamond.

    It is best to use a dish soap with a gentle formula, preferably one that uses natural ingredients to prevent harsh chemicals from damaging the stone.

    Swish the water around to create foam. Afterwards, give your ring a soap bath by soaking it in for 15 minutes. The solution will penetrate and loosen the dirt, dust, and grime that builds upon the crevices or behind the ring.

    You can check if your ring is already dirt-free once you finish soaking it. If there’s still residue left on the gemstone, you can use a soft-bristle toothbrush to brush off the remaining dirt. This is tremendously important in order to avoid scratching the diamond’s surface. Scrub lightly while reaching every nook and cranny.

    Once your diamond is squeaky clean, rinse your ring on clean, cool water. Place it on a paper towel or a clean cloth and let it air dry.
