How to clean diamond rings

When it comes to cleaning diamond rings, regular short cleans are great for ensuring you're not overdoing it. By cleaning your diamond jewellery every two to four weeks, you can prevent the gradual build-up of dirt and grime. A gentle approach will produce the best results. 

  • The first and easiest way to clean a diamond is to soak it in a gentle degreasing solution, such as water with a few drops of mild dish soap, once or twice a week.
  • Once it leaves the water you can scrub it with a soft, clean toothbrush to remove any remaining dirt.
  • The toothbrush should be new and reserved exclusively for cleaning your jewellery.
  • Toothbrushes are perfect for hard-to-reach places like the back of your diamond which tend to collect the most grime.
  • Gently dry your ring with a soft cloth and be careful not to press too hard or bend any prongs.
