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. 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. 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.

DO NOT…

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.
