Aquamarine rings have a beautiful blue appearance and can be worn everyday because of the gemstone’s durability. Aquamarines are typically affordable and can be bought at a higher carat because of its natural large size. If you own an aquamarine ring, set aside a few minutes each month to clean it.
Polish the ring with a pure cotton cloth before soaking it. Synthetic fabrics can damage the surface of the aquamarine stone.
Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and place the ring in it. Mix in mild soap and allow the ring to soak for several minutes. You can add a drop or two of ammonia to the mixture to bring out the ring’s sparkle.
Scrub the ring’s entire surface gently with a soft brush. Pay extra attention to the prong area and the inside of the band.
Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use a 100 percent cotton towel to pat the ring dry. The ring must be completely dry before you wear it.
Take the aquamarine ring to a professional for a deep cleaning. During the cleaning, the jeweler can detect and fix any damage that may have occurred. This step should be done on an annual basis.
You can also use most fine jewelry cleaners to clean an aquamarine ring. Check the directions on the cleaner to see if it can be used on aquamarine jewelry.
