The Value of Having Diamond Engagement Rings Professionally Cleaned

You'll probably want to wear your diamond engagement ring all the time because it symbolizes long-term love and commitment. Even though we always recommend that you remove your diamond rings when washing your hands or engaging in any physical activity, your rings will still come into contact with daily dirt and oils, dulling the sparkle of your rings over time.

Cleaning and inspecting your diamond engagement ring on a regular basis, like you would your car or dentist, should be a part of your annual routine.

What Is The Polish Of A Diamond?

Understanding the difference between polishing and cleaning a diamond is critical.

  • After cutting, diamond technicians use polishing to finish the stone. To achieve a glass-like finish, it is necessary to polish the diamond on all sides. Jewelry manufacturers receive polished diamonds directly from polishers.
  • The diamond is cleaned by removing dirt and oils. It's something you can do on a regular basis at home, as well as a jeweler's ultrasonic clean.

How To Clean Your Diamond Ring At Home

You can take care of your diamond engagement ring in three ways:

  • Make a visual check for any damage to your diamond ring. Verify that all of the stones are still in the setting if there are multiples. Verify that no claws have been bent or snapped
  • With a soft, lint-free cloth, gently wipe and polish the ring. This can be accomplished with a polishing cloth designed for cleaning sunglasses. Keep the cloth clean by washing it frequently.
  • Once a week, use a soft toothbrush and a small amount of dishwash detergent to gently clean the ring.

How Diamond engagement rings Are Cleaned And Polished.

Your diamond ring will lose its luster if you don't have it professionally cleaned, no matter how meticulous you are about cleaning it. A professional jeweler will use ultrasonic cleaning devices and polishing mops to restore the shine to your ring. Ultrasonic cleaning may not be appropriate if your diamond ring has a delicate setting (typically found in vintage rings).

Checking The Setting

Your diamond engagement ring is subject to normal wear and tear. Even if you're careful, the ring will get knocked or bumped from time to time. As a result, we advise that you have your home inspected once a year.

The jeweler will check the setting's integrity during an inspection. Look for signs of wear, such as broken or bent prongs. The stones themselves will be checked to see if they are securely set.

What Is Rhodium Plating?

Precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum pale in comparison to the value of rhodium. In order to achieve a bright white finish, it is applied over most white gold to cover up the slight yellow tint that white gold has.

If you purchase a rhodium-plated white gold engagement ring, be aware that it will require periodic re-plating. Most rhodium plating is just one micron thick and wears off over time. When it comes to how well you take care of your ring, it can last anywhere from six months to one year.

What's so important about having your jewelry professionally polished?

Shining up the precious metal used in jewelry is another definition of polishing. Ultrasonic cleaning is usually followed by this step.
