How to Clean White Gold Ring
It’s true that white gold rings are durable, but when they are constantly exposed to dirt, lotion, soap, and other types of oils, the surfaces can appear dull and will require jewelry maintenance. Fortunately, the white gold jewelry cleaner steps are quite easy to follow and will require a few materials too such as:
- Mild dish soap
- Warm water
- Soft brush or The Crown Choice detail brush set
- Baking soda
- Microfiber towel
Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1: Inspect your ring for any possible loose stones or damaged prongs.
Step 2: Pour warm water into a bowl then add a few drops of mild dish soap.
Step 3: Drop your ring gently into the solution and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Warning: Avoid using hot water when cleaning your white gold ring.
Step 4: Prepare a paste made with water and baking soda.
Step 5: Apply some of the paste on the detail brush from The Crown Choice and scrub your ring with it gently.
Step 5: Rinse your ring under gentle running warm water. This will help remove residue from the ring.
Step 6: Dry and buff your ring using a clean microfiber cloth. Make sure that you remove any moisture from the prongs. Buff the ring gently.
Cleaning White Gold Rings with Gemstones
An engagement or wedding ring that comes with a gemstone will require a different way of cleaning depending on the type of gemstone installed. If the ring that you are wearing comes with a durable gemstone like a diamond, then the steps above should be followed.
However, if your ring has a gemstone made from onyx, pearl, or any gemstones that are less durable, it is best to avoid soaking the top portion of the ring in your cleaning solution to avoid affecting the stone. Instead, you should do this:
- Dip a soft cloth in your prepared warm water and mild dish soap solution.
- Use the damp end to gently rub the parts that weren’t submerged in the water.
- Clean the gemstones with a damp cloth.
- Dry completely to avoid leaving any moisture in the crevices that can affect your jewelry.
Aside from these steps, jewelry experts recommend that you follow these tips:
- Remove your accessory when you do your housework to avoid exposing it to chemicals.
- Do not swim or take a bath while wearing your white gold ring.
