How to clean your rings at home

1 February 2022

From offices to kitchens and parks to malls, rings are the true best friend of every individual out there because they are worn in both casual and formal settings. While we all love a new ring, there is no better feeling than wearing an old ring that looks like a brand new jewel piece again. With daily use, rings often look dull and less sparkly because dirt, dust and other remnants from atmosphere appear as a layer on them. Wait, not to forget the germs that get stuck on the rings – this sounds oddly gross because these germs are an open invitation to skin irritation. While it is a good idea to get your rings and other jewelry professionally inspected and cleaned, we understand that it might not always be possible for you to pay us a visit. To make your rings look all sparkly, make sure to read on this informative article where we have lined up all the tips from our experts to help you clean your rings at home.

Cleaning different types of rings – from diamond and gold to platinum and gemstones

How to clean a diamond ring

The best possible way of cleaning your diamond ring is by making a mixture of warm water and dishwashing liquid soap. Make sure to soak your ring in the liquid for good 20 to 40 minutes and then brush off all the dirt with a soft-bristled brush. Finally, rinse your ring with warm water. Don’t have the dishwashing soap? You may use a gentle bodywash or shampoo.

How to clean gold rings

Add a few drops of baby shampoo in a bowl and make a solution with lukewarm water. Soak your gold rings in this bowl to loosen all the dirt and grime stuck on them. Once the rings have had a good soak, take them out and scrub away the dirt with a soft brush. Now rinse with clean water and make sure to dry it out with a lint-free piece of cloth. Tada! You have a sparkling gold ring with you.

How to clean platinum rings

Got a platinum ring that looks dull and lifeless? Worry not, because we have stepped up to help you make it look all-dazzling at home! Make a sparkling solution with diluted detergent and soak your platinum ring in it. Rinse it and pat dry with a soft towel.

How to clean silver rings

Silver rings can be cleaned at home following the similar method as diamond rings. Some silver rings are often not carved with pure silver but contain traces of copper – yes, we are talking about sterling silver! To clean all such rings, here’s a simple trick. Mix two parts baking soda with one part water to make a paste. Now gently apply the mixture onto your sterling silver ring and let it dry. Rinse and dry it with soft microfiber towel to maintain its alluring shine.

How to clean gemstone rings

Before diving into the process of cleaning gemstone rings at home, it is important to understand the type of gemstone you have. While mild liquid soap and warm water may work for certain gemstone jewelry pieces, some organic gems such as pearl, coral, and amber require a different treatment. For organic gems, wipe them clean with soft cloth and keep them away from fragrances and products with harsh chemicals.

What not to use when cleaning your ring

Wondering about what shouldn’t be used while cleaning your ring? Well, for starters, try your hardest to keep them far away from household cleaners including chlorine and bleach. Avoid using abrasive items while cleaning the crevices because they will do more harm than good to your favorite jewel piece.

How often should I clean my ring?

Well, our expert advice is to try cleaning your ring once a week – that’s about enough time to keep everyday dirt on the bay. If you don’t have time to clean it once a week, don’t miss out on cleaning it at least every two weeks. We know you all want to maintain that sparkling shine on your family heirlooms specially those beautiful rings – if yes, make it habit to book your appointment with professionals at Intini to get your rings cleaned twice a year.
