A Guide to Engagement and Wedding Ring Care and Cleaning

Engagement and wedding rings are not just ordinary pieces of jewellery; they hold immense sentimental value and symbolize the eternal bond between two individuals. These precious symbols of love deserve proper care and attention to ensure they remain as stunning and meaningful as the day they were first worn. This is why regular cleaning and care is so important when it comes to your diamond.


Regular Cleaning:

Keeping your engagement and wedding rings clean is essential to maintain their brilliance and shine. Over time, rings accumulate dirt, oils, and residue from everyday wear. We recommend that you clean and check your ring yourself every 1-2 weeks, to minimise a build-up in bacteria ad keep it looking beautiful and bright.

To clean your rings, create a gentle solution of warm water and mild dish soap. Soak the rings for a few minutes and then scrub gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any residue. Rinse with warm water and pat dry using a lint-free cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the metal or gemstones. We also sell professional cleaning solutions that can be purchased in-store, or online. 



As well as cleaning the ring yourself, coming to see us every 3-6 months for a clean and check is also highly important, or earlier if any unforeseen damages occur. We have specialised equipment and knowledge to restore the brilliance of your rings effectively, and any necessary repairs can be performed.


Proper Storage:

When your rings are not being worn, it's crucial to store them safely. Avoid leaving them on the edge of sinks or countertops, as they may accidentally fall down the drain or get knocked off. Designate a designated place for your rings, such as a lined jewellery box, to protect them from scratches and other potential damage. Additionally, consider storing your rings separately to prevent them from scratching or tangling with other jewellery pieces.



Be Mindful of Activities:

While engagement and wedding rings are designed to withstand everyday wear, certain activities can put them at risk. Remove your rings when engaging in activities that could potentially damage them, such as weightlifting at the gym, swimming, or household chores involving harsh chemicals. Exposure to chemicals, abrasive surfaces, or excessive force can scratch or damage the metal and gemstones.


Engagement and wedding rings are precious symbols of love and commitment that deserve proper care and attention. By following these essential tips for ring care, you can preserve their beauty and meaning for years to come. Remember to clean them regularly, store them safely, and be mindful of activities that may pose a risk. Additionally, regular inspections by a professional jeweller will help identify and address any issues before they worsen. By embracing these practices, you can cherish your engagement and wedding rings as enduring reminders of the love and commitment you share.
