They’re your sparkling token of love, but yellowing and gunky diamond rings aren’t quite as romantic. Keeping your diamond ring sparkling clean not only makes it look like new again; it also extends its life. Cleaning a ring doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming, either. There are many ways you can clean a diamond ring, from using household items like lemon juice and vinegar to more specialized solutions you can purchase online or at a local jewelry store.
What’s the best way to clean a diamond ring?
The best way to clean your diamond ring is to take it to a professional jeweler to have it professionally cleaned and shined. However, cost is a factor for many people, and also, it is not always convenient to take your ring to a jeweler. So, if you want to clean your diamond ring yourself, then follow any one of these methods: – If you have a yellowing diamond ring, baking soda will help neutralize the discoloration. Baking soda is abrasive and will also help scrub away any dirt and grime from the ring. Simply combine one part baking soda with two parts water in a bowl and scrub the ring in the solution. Rinse it with warm water and dry it with a soft cloth. – If your diamond ring has stains, then try soaking it in a solution of warm water and a few drops of lemon juice. The citric acid in the lemon juice will break down the stains. Be sure to remove the ring from the water after a few minutes, as water can damage the ring. – You can also use an odour-free cleanser or a mixture of water and vinegar. Vinegar is a good choice if you’re trying to remove any stains or discoloration from your ring. – Mix one part hydrogen peroxide with nine parts warm water and soak your ring in the solution.
Cut – The cut of a diamond refers to the shape of the diamond and how it is polished. Different diamond shapes have different levels of brightness and sparkle, so it is important to find the cut that will work best with the shape of the diamond. A well-cut diamond will look brighter and more colourful, while a poorly cut diamond will appear dull. Carat – Carat refers to the weight of a diamond. While the size of a diamond does not affect its sparkle, it can affect the value of the ring. Colour – The colour of a diamond is how noticeable the yellow colour is. A colourless diamond is highly desirable and very rare. Clarity – Clarity refers to the amount of inclusions or flaws in a diamond. While clarity does not affect sparkle, diamonds with fewer flaws are more expensive.
Diamond rings are a beautiful symbol of love and commitment, but they can also be a little bit of a nightmare to keep clean. Luckily, there are many ways to clean a diamond ring, and most of them are pretty simple and easy to do.
