Now that you have your engagement ring, the next step is to keep it looking new. There are different ways to clean a ring depending on the type of stone used. If your fiancé has popped the question using a moissanite, then this guide is for you.

Below are some easy-to-do ways to keep your moissanite engagement rings in their best possible condition. With proper care and cleaning, you can make sure that it will last a lifetime.

  1. Detergent

Dilute your liquid dish washing detergent in water. Use this to clean your jewelry with the help of a toothbrush or other brushes that have soft bristles. Avoid using abrasives in cleaning your jewelry, as this can leave scratches and damage it. Use a hair dryer to let it dry completely.

  1. Cleaning solutions

Mix cold water with household ammonia and let the jewelry soak for about 10 minutes. Use the brush to clean the whole piece, including the mounting, to ensure that you’ll thoroughly remove the dirt. Avoid strong cleaning products that contain bleach or chlorine because this can damage your jewelry. Look for alternatives in your household instead.

  1. Store-bought cleaner

There are different kinds of cleaning solutions specifically made for cleaning jewelry pieces. Make sure you use the one designed for moissanite. Follow the instructions stated and you would see your engagement ring looking like new.

  1. Professional cleaner

If in doubt, you can always take your rings to a professional jewelry cleaner. It might be more costly than making your own cleaning solution, but you’re sure that your jewelry would be in good hands.

Aside from working to ensure that your moissanite engagement rings and your weddings bands would always be in good shape, do not forget to focus and work on a more important piece — your marriage. Have a happy wedded life!
