How Frequently Should You Really Clean Your Diamond Engagement Ring?

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Without a doubt, one of your most valuable possessions is your engagement ring. Keep it in top condition to show it love and keep its sparkle. Your diamond engagement ring may accumulate residue from dish soap, shampoo, and lotions, as well as from commonplace activities like holding your phone, which can collect dirt and grime and reduce the diamond's brilliance and diminish its beauty. Even worse, neglected jewelry can become a haven for bacteria, resulting in the deterioration of the metals and even scratches on the stones (not to mention unsightly skin irritations). So how often should your diamond engagement ring be cleaned? It's likely that you should clean your diamond engagement ring more frequently than you think.

For our recommendedd diamond engagement ring upkeep advice, scroll down.

Every Second Week

Due to the fact that they are more durable than other precious metals, diamonds can be washed more frequently without the owner having to worry about causing any damage to the stone. If you wear your diamond engagement ring every day, giving it a quick and gentle cleaning once every two weeks should be sufficient to keep it in good condition. This will bring back its luster and prevent bacteria from settling in. Scrub the gold and diamonds in your engagement ring carefully with a soft toothbrush and dish soap to bring back their luster. Regular cleanings performed at home will, in the long run, help to shorten the overall duration of the cleaning process.

Every Month

It is well worth it to perform a deeper cleaning once a month, even if it takes a little bit of extra time. Diamonds may be tough, but that does not mean they are indestructible. When you are cleaning your engagement ring, you should avoid using any harsh chemicals or excessively vigorous scrubbing, and you should not immerse it for any longer than is absolutely necessary. It is absolutely necessary to have a solid understanding of the particular upkeep practices that are required for the metal, stone, and setting that you have.

Every Two Years

Once every six months, you should have your ring professionally cleaned and inspected to ensure that it remains in good condition. A specialist will examine the ring to ensure that none of the prongs have been warped out of shape and that none of the stones have become dislodged. If you commit to professional service twice a year in addition to your bi-weekly and monthly cleanings at home, your engagement ring should remain beautiful throughout the entire year and be protected from damage. This is the case if you clean it bi-weekly and once a month.
