When you said “I do,” you thought it would last forever—but let’s face it: After months of daily wear, your engagement ring probably isn’t looking so sparkling anymore. Everyday wear builds up layers of oil, debris, and cosmetic residue on the diamond’s surface, making it a bacteria-breeding ground. While it’s always best to take your engagement ring for regular professional cleanings to a jeweler in Montreal or area, there are times when a home job will do the trick. So, don’t worry: With a few simple steps and supplies, you can get your bling back on track—and restore your diamond’s sparkle! Follow our guide to cleaning your diamond engagement ring.
Your engagement ring is valuable, and taking care of it is vital. Remember though, cleaning your ring at home should not be a replacement for professional maintenance and upkeep by a Montreal jeweler. While you can easily dislodge surface buildup, deep, compressed dirt layers require the expertise of a professional jeweler in Montreal or area— so make sure to take your ring in for regular cleanings. Keep this in mind when performing your own home cleaning!
