Then comes the day where you want to wear the ring again and find that it looks dull. The engagement ring has lost its lustre. Cleaning your ring regularly can maintain its shine and sparkle. In fact, it is easy to maintain and clean diamond ring using what is already available at home.

Steps to Having a Clean Engagement Ring – The Mama Lemon Style

Diamonds and gemstones are natural magnets for grease. The oil deposited from our fingers plus the daily activities will cause dirt and filth to pile up. That layer of dirt and filth is what dulls the diamonds and gemstones. An efficient and effective way to clean your engagement ring is to soak it in warm water with a few drops of dishwashing soap. Curious about which dishwashing soap we use in Singapore? It is Mama Lemon!

Soak your ring for 5 to 10 minutes. Next, use a new, very soft toothbrush to gently brush the diamonds and gemstones to remove the remaining dirt. Keep this toothbrush exclusively for cleaning your fine jewellery. Finally, rinse it thoroughly under warm running water to remove soap residue.

Avoid Harmful Solutions

There are some solutions your rings should never come in contact with. They are your usual household cleaners such as chlorine bleach, and abrasive products such as toothpaste. These chemicals can damage the base metal while abrasives can easily scratch the gold.
