Take a bowl and put you diamond ring into it. Now, pour boiling water gently on the ring, until the ring is submerged. Take care not to pour the water in haste, as it may burn your hands.

Wait for the water to cool. Once the water comes to room temperature, take the ring out of the bowl and gently scrub off the dirt using a soft-bristled brush or a coarse cloth. Note that if your ring has an oval shaped diamond to make sure you clean all of the angles around the diamond itself as the roundness will mask dirt in harder to see places.

Rinse the ring using cold water and pat dry it. You can also blow dry the ring if you want.

Note that if your engagement ring contains the gemstones glued to the ring, it would be better to look for other mild cleaning solutions and avoid boiling water.
