I went to lunch with two friends the other day and one of them recently got engaged. She asked to see both of our rings – she was still picking a setting for the stone her fiancé bought. Elissa and I gladly showed her our engagement rings but both made a comment about how our rings were not exactly sparkling because we haven’t cleaned them in awhile.
When you first get your ring it is shiny and new and everyone will be asking to see it. You’ll want to make sure you pick up a ring cleaning solution so that you clean your ring every few weeks. Make sure that your ring is clean for your engagement party and bridal shower and of course for your wedding. You may want to take your engagement ring back to the jeweler a few days or a week before your wedding to have it professionally cleaned. Once it’s been cleaned by the jeweler leave it in its ring box until the wedding day so it’s shines like the top of the Chrysler Building. (Sorry, I saw Annie on TV last weekend.)
Here are some instructions I found online on how to clean a diamond ring, but I recommend asking your jeweler to recommend a cleaning solution.
