Would you like to know more about correct jewellery upkeep?
Below we have outlined how you can easily and safely clean your gold ring (with or without a diamond) yourself. On top of that, have your jewellery professionally cleaned by a jeweller once or twice a year.
Cleaning your diamond or gold ring
One easy, quick way of doing so is to soak your diamond ring for twenty minutes in a solution of lukewarm water with a tiny amount of ammonia. Carefully polish the stone with a soft toothbrush and rinse under warm running water. Repeat if necessary.
Chemicals best to avoid
- Abrasive materials such as sand are hard to remove without the aid of specialist equipment. Should you try to remedy this yourself at home, you run the risk of damaging your jewellery.
- Your jeweller can easily eliminate minor imperfections through polishing.
- The jeweller uses professional cleaning products specifically intended for cleaning precious metals and precious stones.
- On the beach — Wearing jewellery on the beach is not recommended. Grains of sand can scratch the precious metal. They can also penetrate the diamond(s) and metal setting. Should this be the case be sure to ask a professional to expertly remove the grains of sand.
- In the sea — If you're going for a swim in the sea it is advisable to remove your engagement ring or other jewellery first. Saltwater can also erode the soldered components of gold rings. In the worst case scenario this can even result in fractures. Red gold in particular is extremely sensitive to salt due to the copper present in this precious metal.
- In the swimming pool — Remove any jewellery before diving into the pool. Chlorine can damage jewellery. This is why it is advised to remove any gold or diamond rings while swimming. So, keep your jewellery safe and dry in your room or hotel safe. Read here how to clean your jewellery that has come into contact with chlorine.
Would you like to have your jewellery thoroughly cleaned, or is it damaged?
- Set your wedding or engagement ring separately aside before playing sports or undertaking household chores. Be aware of hard surfaces you might come into daily contact with, such as metal filing cabinets or marble worktops.
- Wear any rings set with precious stones separately, or on another finger or hand. Multiple rings that knock against or scratch each other can fissure.
- Keep your rings and jewellery in a soft jewellery box. Ideally, keep your jewellery in its original box provided by the jeweller. These boxes are designed with protection in mind.
