How to Clean Your Engagement Ring at Home

Engagement rings deserve spa days too.

The buildup of makeup, skin oil, lotion, conditioner, dirt, and dust can easily cling to the metal/stone, potentially dimming your stone's sparkly brilliance! But a bit of at-home TLC will restore it to its perfect, shiny condition!

What You’ll Need

1x Mild gentle soap

1x Bowl of warm water

1x Soft toothbrush

1x Engagement ring in need of some sparkle

1. Let it Soak

First, fill a bowl with warm water and add some liquid dish soap. Let your ring soak in this mixture for a few minutes.

2. Gently Clean

Use a soft toothbrush to carefully and gently scrub your ring, focusing on the hard-to-reach areas within the setting.

Note: If you notice the setting is loose, avoid scrubbing with a toothbrush. Instead, gently soak the ring in water or return it to us for a setting check.

3. Rinse

After your engagement ring is nice and clean, rinse it well under running water and let it air dry, or use a lint-free cloth to dry it.

Avoid using any other harsh cleaning products on your ring, as these can corrode the precious stones and metals of your ring. For a deeper clean, use a non-toxic and non-abrasive moissanite or diamond-specific commercial jewellery cleaning product. Or, you can take it for a professional clean and a regular setting check, and wash your hands of any responsibility.
