When you first receive your engagement ring, it’s as brilliant and sparkling as can be. But, over time the sparkle may dull just a little. While it’s just as beautiful, you may be asking yourself “How do I clean my engagement ring?” We can help! Follow along for some helpful tips.
Firstly, allow us to say that we’ll happily clean and inspect your ring for free at any time. You read right, there’s no charge for a professional cleaning! Additionally, we can ensure that your beautiful ring is always in good repair by inspecting prongs, channels, and other condition issues. By having your ring professionally cleaned and inspected often, you’ll know if there are any repair issues to correct before any damage happens to your ring.
Our first piece of advice: don’t wash dishes or apply lotion while wearing your jewelry. Because soaps and lotions can cause oils to adhere more quickly to your jewelry, they’ll make your pieces look dirty much faster. We also highly suggest having a safe place to put your ring while at home. You’ll always know where it is, even when it isn’t on your finger. Ultimately, you won’t get it dirty while doing housework.
How do I Clean my Engagement Ring: What Not to do
Whatever you do, be choosy about what you use to clean your ring. It’s never a good idea to use caustic or corrosive chemicals to clean your ring. These chemicals can eat away at the precious metals of your ring and cause damage over time. Additionally, it’s very important to use products that are non-toxic and ammonia free. Degreasers are an excellent choice. We suggest using a mixture of simple green and water and gently scrubbing with a toothbrush from time to time. That is to say, when you can’t make it to our shop for a deep clean.
