How to Clean Diamond Rings

Yes, your diamond existed 100 miles below the Earth's surface for millions of years before it came to decorate your jewelry. And yes, diamonds are used in high-powered drills to dig deep into the earth. They have been through a lot and will stand up to years of everyday abuse. However, if you want to keep your diamond rings shining as beautiful and lustrous as it did on the first day you got it, you have to take care of them. Here are some easy tips for cleaning your diamond rings.

Learn how to clean diamond rings with this simple guide from the jewelers at Michael C. Fina.

    3 Easy Tips to Cleaning Diamond Rings

  • Store your diamond rings separate from your other jewelry. Your diamonds will scratch other gems and damage each other if stored improperly.

  • When cleaning your diamond rings, be sure to use a jewelry cleaner that does not contain any harsh chemicals that could harm either your gemstone or the setting (ex: chlorine, alcohol, etc).

  • Don't use a hard brush to clean your diamond rings; though the diamond will not be damaged, the setting may be. Use a soft brush to clean off any buildup that can't be removed by other techniques.

Everyday Tips to Avoid Regularly Cleaning Diamond Rings

  • Although it is durable, a diamond can still be chipped. It is best to take off your diamond rings when doing strenuous activity or working with your hands.

  • Take off your diamond rings while sleeping; a prong can catch on the sheets and bend, causing you to lose your diamond.

  • Though most harsh chemicals are not going to damage your diamond, many (like chlorine) could damage or discolor the setting and cause your diamond to fall out. Do not swim with your diamond rings!

  • Have your diamond rings checked out once a year to make sure everything is fine; one bent prong could mean your diamond is gone forever.
