When you first laid your eyes on your engagement ring I can bet it looked absolutely brilliant. As you moved it in the light and showed it to all your friends it beamed and glowed like the sun setting on the horizon. However as time moved on it gradually lost its shine and once radiant glow.

Well maybe I’m going a little over board but you get the gist of where I’m coming from. That little ring of yours might have lost its glow so we thought you might benefit from some cleaning tips.

The best way to clean your ring is to make a warm ( not hot ) solution of water and dishwashing liquid. You can also use ammonia. Let the ring soak for up to 40 minutes and then gently wash with a fine brush. Just go gently. If this fails to give results you can always contact your jeweller to have it professionally cleaned.


Never do this to your engagement ring.

You really should avoid using household cleaners like bleach, chlorine, and acetone on your ring as you could cause damage. Harsh chemicals can actually break down your ring. Also avoid using toothpaste or baking soda.


How to care for your ring

The more you care for your ring the better it will last. It’s a good idea to take it off when doing household work, exercise or outdoor activities. Take it off when you are washing dishes.

Looking after your ring will help avoid dirt getting underneath the stone and the risk of your stone actually falling out.
