Baking soda cleans rust and stains easily from rings. You can make a thick paste of it with a few drops of water. Take a sponge and polish the ring with the paste. Let the paste cover the ring for a one hour. Don’t do this is if your ring is made of pearl or gemstones.

Get a sliver polishing cloth for your silver jewelry and gold or platinum polishing cloth for your gold or platinum ring from the jeweler. Use it once a month for gentle cleaning of your engagement ring in precious metal.
