Nothing is more mesmerizing than watching your engagement rings sparkle and dance in the light after it has been freshly polished and cleaned. It is only natural to want our rings to maintain that bling! After all, wedding rings and jewelry hold a special place in our hearts as they symbolize love, commitment, and special moments in our lives. And while you can always take it into those jewellery store for a professional cleaning, why not you can give it a polish at home too!

As time passes by, most jewellery, especially rings, will become duller or more tarnished due to wear and tear. In the previous post, we shared about the different types of metal for making your engagement ring or wedding bands. In this post, we will share with you on how to keep your jewellery, especially your wedding engagement ring, polished and scratch-free. These are the simple steps to keeping your jewellery polished and scratch-free:


your jewellery in separate pouches or compartments of a jewellery box to avoid scratching. There are some occasions (example: heading to gym to exercise) where you need to keep your ring in your bag. You should avoid storing your jewellery in humid or damp environments, as this can cause tarnish. Instead, store your jewellery in a dry place, such as a jewellery box or a velvet pouch. If you have those traditional ring boxes that takes quite a space, you can consider purchasing our small and compact ring boxes to house your ring in the right way.


your jewellery in a solution of mild dish detergent and warm water as dirt, grime, and oils from your skin can build up on your jewellery over time and make it look dull. Rinse thoroughly and dry your ring with a soft cloth. Take note that some metals might cause corrosion. Hence, it is better to check with the jewellery shop you purchased at on the correct cleaning methods.

How often should I clean my ring?

It is best to try to clean your ring once a week. That’s enough to keep everyday oil and buildup at bay. About twice a year, however, it’s good to take it to be cleaned at your jewellers as they use professional-grade products to restore the brilliance of the stone safely.

What NOT to use when cleaning diamond ring?

It is advisable not to use any household cleaners such as bleach, chlorine, and acetone as these harsh chemicals can break down some of the base metals in your ring. To further add on, you must never use any kind of abrasive products such as toothpaste, baking soda, or any powdered cleaners, which can easily scratch metals, especially gold.


scrub precious metals with an adult toothbrush as it might scratch your ring, leaving a mark on it. To remove tough grime from crevices, you can use a child’s toothbrush with soft bristles to gently scrub away.


your jewellery when doing manual labour or active sports to avoid your ring being scratched. It is also advisable not to wear when working with harsh chemicals, and when swimming in chlorinated water. This is to avoid corrosion.


with your jewellers if your jewellery contains diamonds or gemstones. As some may be treated and need special attention, it is important to know which to avoid to prevent your ring from being tarnished or damaged. Also, do more regular inspection of your jewellery for any signs of damage, such as cracks, chips, or missing stones.
