Everyday routines like shampoo, hairspray, hand lotions, hand soaps and cooking oils can leave a cloudy sheen across your diamond and your band. We recommend keeping a small ring dish beside your kitchen sink or shower to remember to remove your ring when washing dishes or showering, etc. 

Soap and water plus a soft bristle toothbrush is the best way to clean a diamond ring, no matter your piece's setting and/or metal type. Mix generic soap (like Dawn) with warm water to make the solution. Soak your piece for about 20 to 40 minutes, depending on how dirty your piece is, rinse under warm running water and repeat if necessary.

Just be sure to plug your drain so your piece does not fall down the sink! If you need to remove a substance such as hairspray, lotion, makeup, or perfume, use a very soft toothbrush to remove any residue. Be sure to gently scrub beneath your stone.

NEVER use chlorine or other harsh chemicals; even some certified jewelry cleaners can damage your stone. It's important to rinse your piece thoroughly after cleaning in order to remove any soap residue.
