Many professional cleaners will use a steam cleaner or an ultrasonic device to clean your diamond engagement ring. Your diamond engagement ring can also be boiled in sulfuric acid. This method of cleaning diamond engagement rings is best used when the diamond engagement ring becomes excessively dirty. Although, the use of this method for cleaning your diamond engagement ring can be detrimental to the health of your diamond, if the diamond already has some flaws. In this case, make sure your jeweler is aware of any flaws in your diamond engagement ring before you have your diamond engagement ring cleaned.
