Diamonds may be the hardest substance on earth, but they aren't invincible. Whether it's a classic diamond ring or a modern diamond engagement band, every piece of diamond jewellery needs a little tender loving care to keep its shine. Today, let's delve into the details of diamond and engagement ring care.


The Basics of Diamond Ring and Jewellery Care

If you’re wondering how to clean diamond rings or jewellery at home, the good news is that you only need to follow a few simple steps to restore their brilliant lustre.


A simple solution of warm water mixed with a few drops of dish soap is the most recommended method for regular, quick touch-ups. Soak your diamond ring or jewellery for about 20-30 minutes, then use a soft toothbrush to gently brush away grime, focusing on areas where dirt tends to accumulate. Some diamond jewellery designs may also require special attention due to the intricate settings and designs, such as the beautiful spiralling pattern found in an infinity diamond ring, or the miniscule details found in a pair of diamond earrings.


After rinsing off all soapy water, use a soft lint-free cloth to fully wipe the jewellery down and remove any excess moisture. You should not need to apply any additional cleaners to get your diamonds sparkling once more – if anything, using the wrong cleaning solution might even damage or dull your diamond jewellery permanently!


You should also always handle any rings by their band, never the diamond itself, to avoid the oils from your fingers dulling the stone’s surface. Using a soft cloth or pair of gloves to handle the jewellery during the cleaning process can also help you avoid transferring oil, dirt, and grime onto the diamonds.


For more stubborn dirt, you may need to turn to professional cleaning solutions. Ultrasonic cleaners can be effective, but they may also loosen the diamond settings, so they're best left for professional use. Love & Co. offers complimentary ring cleaning sessions at our jewellery stores in Singapore, so you can get your ring cleaned while maintaining your peace of mind.
