A Guide on How to Clean Your Engagement Ring

Materials Needed:

  1. Soft toothbrush
  2. Mild dish soap
  3. Warm water
  4. Microfiber cloth
  5. Bowl or cup
  6. Optional: Ultrasonic cleaning machine

Step 1: Prepare Cleaning Solution Fill a bowl or cup with warm water. Add a small amount of mild dish soap to create a gentle cleaning solution. Ensure the drain is blocked to prevent any accidental slips.

Step 2: Soak Your Ring Place your engagement ring in the cleaning solution, allowing it to soak for a few minutes. This helps to loosen any dirt, oils, or debris accumulated on the ring's surface.

Step 3: Gentle Brushing Take a soft toothbrush and, with gentle pressure, start brushing your ring. Pay special attention to the underside of the diamond and other intricate areas where dirt may accumulate. Use small, circular motions for effective cleaning.

Step 4: Rinse Thoroughly Rinse the ring under warm running water to remove any soap residue. Ensure all soap is washed away, especially from the back and crevices of the diamond.

Step 5: Dry Your Ring Pat your ring dry with a microfiber cloth. Avoid using paper towels or tissues, as they may leave lint or scratches on the metal.

Step 6: Professional Cleaning (Optional) For an expert touch, visit us at The Classic Jewellers, 94 Gawler Place, SA, Adelaide 5000, for a thorough and professional cleaning of your engagement ring. Our skilled artisans will ensure it regains its original brilliance, maintaining its radiant symbolism of everlasting love.

Optional Step: Ultrasonic Cleaning If you have an ultrasonic cleaning machine, follow the manufacturer's instructions. Generally, you'll submerge your ring in water with a dash of dishwashing detergent and let the machine's vibrations break down any remaining residues. Be cautious with delicate settings, and avoid using this method for watches.


  • Clean your ring every two weeks to maintain its sparkle.
  • For stubborn dirt, let the ring soak a bit longer before brushing.
  • If it's been a while since your last cleaning, consider a brief soak in boiling water with dish soap before brushing.

Regular cleaning ensures your engagement ring remains as brilliant as the day you received it, a sparkling symbol of your enduring love.
