FAQ: Jewelry Cleaning At-Home

One of the most common questions we receive is, "How do I keep my diamond band clean?," and "How do I clean my diamond engagement ring at home?" We understand that engagement rings and wedding bands are more than just accessories; they're symbols of love and commitment that hold significant emotional value.

That's why we're excited to share a quick and easy tutorial on how to clean all your diamond jewelry – from petite pendant necklaces to everyday diamond studs. This process applies for all your diamond pieces set in precious metals – 14k gold, 18k gold, or platinum.

Follow along as Mimi walks us through each step of a DIY cleaning.


First, gather the necessary items - a soft bristle toothbrush, a small container for soap, Windex, and a hot bowl of water. Place a small amount of soap in the container and add a few drops of Windex.

Next, dip the toothbrush into the soap mixture and gently scrub the diamond band, being sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. The pave setting can be particularly tricky, so take your time and make sure you're getting all the lotion, grease, and dirt out. 

Once you've brushed the band thoroughly, rinse it under hot, hot water. Repeat the process a few times if necessary to ensure that all the soap and Windex have been rinsed away.

Finally, admire the results! Your diamond band should be sparkling like new, with all the brilliance and fire that it's meant to have. Taking the time to clean your jewelry regularly using the steps outlined above will help maintain its brilliance and value, ensuring that it lasts for many years to come.
