How to clean a diamond ring at home

Sparkling and radiant, diamond rings are not only cherished symbols of love and commitment but also precious investments deserving of proper care.

The most effective way to clean your diamond ring at home is by soaking it in a mixture of warm water and soap, before brushing the stone and rinsing. However, we understand that you may need more information on the dos and don’ts.

Diamond experts at Steven Stone have shared some detailed information about how to clean your diamond ring at home.

What household products can clean a diamond ring?

Cleaning your diamond ring is simple to do with just a few household products – warm water, mild detergent and a soft bristle brush.

Often, the reason that your diamond ring collects dirt is due to the use of everyday cosmetics such as hairspray, makeup and perfume. Luckily, the stains these products leave behind are not particularly stubborn and can be quickly cleaned.

How long should you soak a diamond ring?

By soaking your diamond ring for a good 10 minutes in a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, you will help loosen any dirt around the stone or the ring itself. It’s important to avoid using household cleaners like bleach as these can breakdown the base materials of your jewellery.

Products like toothpaste or baking soda are also best avoided as they can easily scratch valuable metals, especially gold.

What is the best way to brush a diamond ring?

Using a soft bristle brush, gently clean the stone to get to the hard to reach places where dirt has collected, then just rinse with warm running water. After rinsing, your diamond ring should once again look brand new. However, if there’s still bits of dirt left over, then you may need to give it another brush and rinse. Once you’ve finished, use a lint-free cloth to gently dry and polish it. With this last step, your diamond ring will be as clean as the first time you put it on.

While this approach can help you to make your diamond ring look brand new again, it is just a home remedy. Depending on how you’ve cared for it, the ring may have a thicker layer of dirt or even oil that needs a more thorough approach. In this scenario, a proper clean and finish requires a professional touch. To maintain the natural beauty of your stone, it’s best to take it to an expert jeweller with professional-grade products at least once a year.
