Here’s a simple and easy guide to safely cleaning your rings at home:
How often you should clean your rings depends on how often you wear them, and which stone your ring bears. For example, diamonds can withstand more wear-and-tear than opals. You may want to clean your opal rings gently and less often than you clean your diamond rings.
A ring that you wear each day, like your engagement ring, should be cleaned using this at-home method every month. Schedule professional cleaning once every six months to keep your ring in top sparkling condition.
If you’re planning on cleaning Emeralds, Pearls, Coral, Turquoise, Enamel, Plastic, Glued items, or any other soft materials with this DIY cleaning kit, skip the rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover! These chemicals may harm soft precious stones and can be cleaned with gentle soap and water.
Here’s a few more substances you should never use to clean your rings:
While ultrasonic jewelry cleaners are convenient for cleaning your rings at home, you have to know which stones this tool can't clean. Harder, heartier stones like diamonds or rubies are typically safe in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. An ultrasonic cleaner can destroy pearls, opals, and other porous gems though. Do your research to figure out if an ultrasonic cleaner will destroy your rings.
To keep your rings looking their best, you should schedule professional cleans every six months.
