Our hearts sink when a customer shows up with their once stunning engagement ring that has faded and is no longer dazzling. Dirt is the culprit, and so is the solution. Natural characteristics of diamonds make them prone to picking up surface grime and attracting dust and other particles. Your once-special ring can suffer greatly if you don't take proper care of these rare gemstones. Because of the interference with the light's ability to pass freely in and out of the diamond, a tainted diamond ring loses its luster and brilliance. A dirty center diamond can give the impression of low quality after a while if it isn't cleaned. Remember that the diamond's inherent qualities of cut, color, and clarity are unaffected by surface buildup, which only alters the stone's appearance. A lot of the dirt accumulates on the stone's surface, but the underside of the ring is even more dangerous, as the wearer is completely unaware of its existence. You can keep your ring shining like the day you bought it with these tips:
On the internet, you can buy jewelry cleaning solution. An inexpensive brand is fine. Afterwards, rinse the ring and dry it with a soft cloth. Leaving it in for an extended period of time can damage the metal, and repeated use can eat away at it. Then, using a soft brush or toothbrush, gently scrub the underside of the band. There is a lot of buildup beneath the stone, so be sure to clean it thoroughly. Brush both the top and the sides of the ring with care. To finish it off, use a microfiber cloth to wipe it dry. It's also possible to leave the ring near the steam of your coffee maker to further dislodge the dirt.
If you're in a bind and don't have access to jeweler's cleaner, try boiling some water with a few drops of liquid dish soap. Brush your ring after letting it sit in the solution for a while. You don't want to jar loose any stones by scrubbing too hard.
