How to Clean Your Diamond Rings and Jewellery: Expert Tips from Simon West Fine Jewellery

Diamonds might be ‘forever’ as the old saying goes, but to keep them shining bright, regular cleaning is essential. 

At Simon West Jewellery, we understand the importance of maintaining the brilliance of your diamond rings and jewellery. Whether it’s a cherished engagement ring or a beloved diamond necklace, knowing how to clean diamond rings and jewellery properly can make all the difference in maintaining their sparkle and beauty.

Simple Steps for At-Home Cleaning

You don’t always need professional help to keep your diamonds shining. Here’s a straightforward guide on how to clean young diamond ring at home:

  • Start with Jewel Clean Liquid: Place your diamond ring in Jewel Clean liquid for 2 minutes. This solution is gentle on your jewellery but tough on dirt and grime.
  • Brush Gently: Remove the ring from the solution and gently use a brush to clean around the diamond. Make sure the bristles reach the bottom of the diamond, targeting areas where dirt accumulates.
  • Repeat for Thorough Cleaning: Repeat steps 1 and 2 for a comprehensive clean. This ensures that all sides of the diamond and the setting are free from dirt.
  • Rinse Well: Rinse the ring under hot water from a tap. This step removes any remaining cleaning solution and loosens debris.
  • Dry with Care: Use a hairdryer for about 20 seconds to dry your ring. This method prevents water spots and ensures that your diamond is dry and ready to wear.

Remember, it's advisable to perform this ‘clean diamond ring’ routine at the start of every month. 

For those who wear their rings daily, feel free to do this every day to maintain that dazzling sparkle. However, be cautious not to touch the diamond directly, as oils from your fingers can leave a film, reducing its brilliance.

Diamond On-The-Spot Clean at Simon West Jewellery

In addition to at-home care, we offer a quick, on-the-spot diamond cleaning service at our studio. This process takes just 5 minutes and is completely free of charge. For this service, let us know a day prior or by 10:00 am on the day you plan to come in. No appointment is required, making it convenient for those with busy schedules.

Regular Maintenance: The Key to Longevity

While home cleaning is effective for daily maintenance, professional care is paramount to ensure the longevity of your diamond jewellery. 

We recommend bringing your jewellery to Simon West Jewellery every 18 months to two years for a full inspection. This routine check helps alert you to any wear and tear that may need attention.

During these visits, we also provide a thorough cleaning and polishing service. Some pieces may require re-coating, which we can expertly handle. To make this process convenient, we send a reminder via email or text message, so you don’t miss out on these essential maintenance appointments.

Remember, a well-cared-for diamond not only reflects light beautifully but also symbolizes the enduring care and love it represents.
