  1. Assemble your cleaning materials

    To start cleaning diamond rings, gather mild dish soap, a soft toothbrush, a lint free cloth and warm water. For rings that need a little extra help, get ammonia or a denture tablet and a glass.

  2. Mix and scrub

    Mix warm water and the dish soap together. Using the toothbrush, scrub the ring carefully. If needed, dip the ring into the soapy water. Gently clean the diamond, prongs and ring shaft.

  3. Rinse and dry the ring

    Swish the ring in clean warm water. Rinse in a clean bowl, the sink with the drain plugged or in a strainer basket in the sink. Remove the ring, and pat it dry with the lint-free cloth. Air drying in a safe location is also an option.

  4. Soak the ring in ammonia

    For grimier rings, mix equal parts of ammonia and cold water. Allow the ring to soak for 30 minutes. Rinse and dry carefully.

  5. Use an effervescent cleaner

    Drop a denture tablet into a glass of water, then drop the ring carefully inside. The bubbles clean the tiny crevices and grooves of the diamond ring that soap and a toothbrush might leave behind. After a few minutes, remove, rinse and dry.
