How to clean your engagement ring at home

The engagement ring is probably one of the most expensive purchases you have ever owned, so you will have to know how to take care of your engagement ring to maintain the diamond brilliance.

“Why does my diamond ring look dull?”

Your hand lotions, makeup, and hair sprays will create a thin layer of dirt, making your diamond look dull if you wear it daily. For this reason, it is a good idea to clean your ring every week if you want to keep it looking as perfect as the day you got it!

Cleaning an engagement ring is very easy. It is important to know how to care for your ring before you begin the cleaning process as each engagement ring is unique with different types of stones, metals, and ring settings.
