Cleaning Your Engagement Ring
Depending on the setting you choose, you can soak your diamond engagement and/or wedding rings in a mild solution of dishwashing liquid and warm water for a few minutes. Using a soft cloth or cotton swab, gently scrub the metal (yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, platinum, silver) and then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Repeat the process if necessary. Always make sure your ring is completely dry before putting it on again. Moisture can irritate sensitive skin. For coloured gemstone engagement rings, please adjust the temperature of the water to luke warm. Do not put any coloured precious or semi-precious gemstones in hot water.
Use a soft toothbrush to dab or lightly tap away dirt that is stuck between prongs and claws. Do not scrub the ring with the toothbrush please! If fibres from any type of cloth get stuck in the setting or claws, gently use tweezers to remove them.

Ionic or Ultrasonic cleaners can be used on most diamond, ruby and sapphire jewellery. If your engagement ring is set with stones other than diamonds, consider other cleaning methods, as some gemstones are adversely affected by the electrical current in the ionic cleaning process.
Stones that are sensitive to this cleaning process are the following: Morganite, Emeralds, Tanzanite, Opals, Pearls, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Onyx, Turquoise, Mystic Topaz, Carnelian, and Hematite.
We strongly suggest that you have your ring professionally cleaned by us annually. The Rhodium finish on a white gold ring could also then be checked and re-applied if necessary at a minimal cost.
When storing your diamond jewellery, be sure to keep it separate from other jewellery. Remember that diamonds can not only scratch any other jewellery you have, but can scratch each other as well. Make sure that two diamond pieces are not being stored in such a way that they touch each other.
