You should bring your rings in to be professionally cleaned and inspected by a jeweler every 6 months, but you'll also need to clean it at home in order to keep it bright and shiny.
For the best results, clean your ring every 2 weeks. It's simple enough that you can let it sit while you go about your household chores. Here's how.
Mix dish soap and warm to hot water in a small bowl or cup.
Let the ring sit in the water for 20-30 minutes.
Take it out and scrub it gently with a toothbrush. When you do so, be careful to avoid any colored stones (think non-diamonds) so as not to scratch or otherwise damage them.
Rinse the ring with water and dry it completely.
Whether you’re swimming in a pool or the ocean, it’s a good idea to remove your jewelry. If any of the pieces are loose on you, or have weakened clasps, they can get lost in the water and damaged in the process. In addition, chlorinated water and sand can cause damage to the metal and stones in your jewelry.
