How To Look After A Ring
Cleaning Your Jewellery
Before cleaning make sure you have inspected your ring’s condition and only proceed if all claws and stones are secure. Look out for areas that are congested with excess dirt.
According to GIA, diamonds naturally attract grease and need to be cleaned on a regular basis to preserve their sparkle and fire. Our recommended cleaning method doesn’t require any special equipment or detergents. Simply soak your diamond engagement ring in a bowl of warm water and washing up liquid once a week. After soaking, gently polish using a cotton towel or scrub dirt off gaps and engravings with a soft toothbrush and rinse with clean water.
Just like diamonds, gemstones do not require any special detergents or cleaning tools. We recommend using water and dishwashing liquid soak to remove dirt from gemstone engagement rings and gem set jewellery. Please bear in mind that some gemstones should not be soaked and contact between gemstones and any chemicals, perfumes and beauty products is not recommended, as they can dull or pit softer gemstones and permanently damage the jewellery metal. For more information on gemstone engagement rings maintenance, see our gemstone care guide.
What To Do If Your Diamond Engagement Ring Breaks
Engagement rings are worn daily and are constantly exposed to chemicals and external influences. They symbolise the beginning of your marriage, but substantially are just an object. Just because they broke doesn’t have to mean it’s a bad sign, it’s most likely a sign of harsh impact or poor craftsmanship.
