Diamond is the most costly and hardest natural substance on the earth. Koh-I-Nor marked as the most expensive diamond in the world.

What we can do is clean our engagement ring whenever it gets dirty. Let’s check some proven tips and tricks to clean diamond rings.
Use warm water and soap
One of the simplest tricks to clean a diamond ring is the use of warm water and soap. Just take a bowl and filed it with warm water, now put some soap or dishwashing powder in this water. Finally, put your engagement or diamond ring in the bowl and let it soak for at least 2 to 4 hours for a better result.
Brush the ring
Like teeth, a toothbrush can be used to clean diamonds or an engagement ring. We brush our teeth to clean the dirt that is stuck deeper inside. Brush scratch the dust, so that it gets rid of easily. The same procedure works in cleaning the engagement or diamond ring. Attention – use a softer brush to avoid scratches and further damage to the ring. It is recommendable to use kid’s brushes because they have small and soft bristles. Always use a fresh and separate brush to clean your diamond ring. Do not use the same brush to clean other substances. Clean edges and clean it from the bottom because this is the place where all dust got collected or stuck.
Rinse the ring under the water
After applying the brush, now rinse the ring under the water in the sink to clean it properly. Rub it with a gentle thumb under the flowing water.
Dry the ring
Now washing with water or a toothbrush is over. It’s time to dry the ring with cotton or linen cloth. Do not use paper to clean the ring because it put scratches on the ring
Polish the ring
