You Can Clean It Yourself

Mark Mann, the director of Global Jewelry Manufacturing Arts at the GIA, tells Brides that you don't necessarily have to take your engagement to the jeweler to get cleaned. For instance, if it has just been dirtied by everyday items like hairspray or lotions you can easily clean it yourself. Read on to find out the best (and affordable) way to DIY your own way to effectively clean your beautiful engagement ring.

Use Warm Water & Dish Soap

Mark Mann further shares his best engagement ring cleaning routine idea with Brides. "The best way to clean your ring is to make a solution with warm water (almost hot) and dishwashing soap," Mark says. "Soak your ring for about 20 to 40 minutes, gently brush the stone with a very soft toothbrush, and then rinse under warm running water. If needed, repeat," he adds.

Of course the best way to keep your ring looking new is by cleaning it yourself regularly. If by any chance you think it might've been affected by harsh bathroom or kitchen cleaning products, then it's best to take it somewhere for a professional cleaning. Whether it's right before your wedding or long after your big day has passed, you should always take good care of your ring!
