How to cleanse a ring of negative energy?

Our jewelry can withstand not so delicate handling, but over time their “long-suffering” is exhausted and they lose their original presentable appearance. This phenomenon, in most cases, is not critical: your favorite jewelry can be restored to its elegant appearance at minimal cost. To do this, you can use both special compositions that are sold in jewelry stores, and improvised means that you will probably find in your home. In extreme cases, you will have to go to a grocery store or pharmacy and spend a hundred rubles, but this is not difficult, isn’t it?

Negative Factors

  • sweat, fat and other secretions from our body;
  • high humidity and water;
  • household and other chemicals;
  • cosmetics and hygiene products;
  • physical contamination and damage.

The noble metals that suffer least from the effects of negative factors are gold, silver, platinum, as well as other elements of the platinum group – ruthenium, osmium, palladium, iridium, rhodium. In their pure form, they are practically insensitive to all of the above influences.

Precious metals in their pure form are not used for the production of jewelry for various reasons. For example, pure silver and gold are soft metals. Rings made from them would bend under the slightest pressure and literally scratch with a fingernail.

All kinds of additives (ligatures) make precious metals harder, which is especially important in the case of gold and silver. But platinum in its pure form can be used (its physical characteristics allow it), but such jewelry would be incredibly expensive.

The more precious metal there is in a jewelry alloy, the less often the rings need to be cleaned, because it is the ligatures that react most strongly to negative factors.

Preliminary cleaning stage

As a preliminary step before cleaning any jewelry, you can consider soaking it in a soapy solution. This helps to get rid of major physical contaminants at minimal cost in all respects.

Cleaning with soapy water is extremely simple:

  • We fill a small container with water at a temperature of 40-50 degrees.
  • Crumble baby soap into it (you can sprinkle in some shampoo or non-toxic dishwashing detergent) and stir well.
  • Place rings and other jewelry into the solution and leave for 2-3 hours.
  • We carefully remove residual contamination mechanically (for example, with a cotton swab).
  • We rinse the jewelry under running water and dry it with a soft cloth.

Prolonged soaking in a soap solution is undesirable for rings with pearls and other delicate organics. You should not soak jewelry made from alloys with added iron.

How to clean a silver ring at home

The so-called blackness is the main scourge of silver. It is formed during the process of sulfidization, which affects both silver and copper, which is usually included in jewelry alloys. And the catalyst for the reaction is not only artificial chemicals, but also secretions produced by the human body.

It is not difficult to clean a silver ring from blackness at home. For example, you can use the option of boiling in foil and soda. If desired, you can add a little table salt or hydrogen peroxide to speed up the chemical reaction.

  • Line the bottom of a small fireproof dish with cooking foil and place decorations there.
  • Prepare a soda solution (about 50 grams of soda per liter of water) and pour it into a prepared container with foil and rings.
  • Place the container on the stove, bring the solution to a boil, and boil for 5-10 minutes.
  • Let the solution cool, remove the jewelry, and, if necessary, clean it mechanically.
  • Rinse the rings under running water and dry with a napkin.

If your silver ring turns black, especially quickly and suddenly, schedule a visit to your doctor. With many diseases, hormonal levels change, secretions become more caustic, which is what your jewelry reacts to.

If you need to clean a silver ring with a stone at home, it is better to resort to a more gentle method: some minerals and most organic matter are sensitive to high temperatures.

You can clean a blackened silver ring with inserts, for example, with ammonia. But we warn you: this method is very “fragrant”, so it is better to carry out manipulations in the fresh air or, in extreme cases, with an open window. And be sure to wear gloves!

  • Take a small glass or enamel bowl and pour a glass of warm water into it.
  • Add a spoonful of ammonia to the water, stir and add decorations.
  • Let sit for about an hour, thoroughly wash and dry the rings.

Special care should be taken when handling blackened silver: its aesthetics is determined precisely by the alternation of shiny and dark areas of the metal (mainly in the recesses). It is better to have such products professionally cleaned or to be content with mechanical methods for removing major contaminants.

How to clean a gold ring

You can clean a gold ring using the same methods as a silver one. Even most professional cleaning compounds are suitable for all precious metals. For example, you can clean a gold ring of iodine with the same aforementioned solution of ammonia: ammonia is sold in pharmacies and costs literally pennies.

Usually, if you need to clean a ring of blackness at home, then we are clearly not talking about gold jewelry. A high-quality aurum-based jewelry alloy does not turn black!

Particular care should be taken if you need to clean gold rings with stones at home. Not all inserts can withstand boiling and exposure to aggressive reagents.

If we are not talking about the most delicate organic matter, you can resort to cleaning with vinegar. Just heat regular table vinegar to about 50 °C, put the jewelry there, leave for about an hour, rinse and dry the ring.

And you can clean a ring with topaz at home in an even more gentle way. Grate a raw potato and keep the ring in this paste for a couple of hours, rinse and dry. Many people use lemon juice and even Coca-Cola for similar purposes: they remove surface dirt very well.

If we are talking about the softest and most delicate inserts like pearls, amber or coral, you can use toothpaste. It should not contain any abrasive particles, that is, we immediately exclude bleaching pastes. Formulations with dyes and tooth powders are also undesirable.

Rings with delicate inserts will have to be cleaned manually, with a soft cotton pad or swab. Do not use a needle under any circumstances: it can damage both the soft metal and the insert!

But what to do if the surface of the ring seems to be cleaned, but the jewelry is in no hurry to please you with its pristine shine? The answer is simple: jewelry gets damaged during use. Soft gold-based alloys especially suffer from this: no matter how hard you try to protect the ring from all sorts of aggressive factors, over time its surface will still be covered with a network of scratches. And for the ring to shine again, it needs to be polished.

Do not rush to use soda, a nail file or sandpaper – this will only make the situation worse. The ideal remedy for your immediate goals is GOI paste. This is a time-tested product, invented during the Soviet Union almost a century ago, and originally intended for polishing optical instruments. Over time, the scope of application of GOI paste expanded to the treatment of metal surfaces.

GOI paste has long been used for polishing jewelry. For our purposes, it is best to first use paste No. 2 (grinding to get rid of scratches), and then No. 4 (the thinnest composition, to bring the surface to a mirror shine).

How to clean a diamond ring

A diamond ring is the pride of its owner, and the larger the diamond, the more the owner’s eyes shine. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but they don’t require any special treatment. Therefore, you can clean a diamond ring at home using any of the above methods.

The diamond will not be damaged by the abrasive. It is not afraid of any high temperatures that you can achieve at home. Contrary to the claims of home-grown “jewelers,” a diamond cannot become cloudy from boiling. It is not afraid of strong acids and alkalis, at least those encountered in everyday life.

So you should clean a diamond ring at home, focusing on the characteristics of the metal, not the stone. What is harmless to the metal will not harm the precious insert.

In the case of diamond jewelry, you should worry about losing it or losing it due to theft. Theoretically, a diamond can be broken, but you wouldn’t hit the ring with a hammer, would you?

Clean rings from rust: the best way

If your ring is covered with rust, it means it is guaranteed not to be made of a noble metal or its content in the alloy is minimal. Metals containing iron are most susceptible to oxidation (which is what causes rust). And that’s not all: for example, stainless steel practically does not oxidize!

But if the ring is of any value to you, you should return it to its presentable appearance. Under no circumstances should you try to remove rust from a ring by boiling, salt or exposure to any reagents. In principle, you can use WD-40 aerosol, colloquially referred to as “Vedashka” and known to all motorists, but it leaves behind oily stains and is not harmless for inserts.

In this situation, it is best to remove rust mechanically, for example, using the GOI paste already mentioned today.

What to do to prevent the ring from oxidizing

As mentioned above, if the ring oxidizes, it means it contains a minimum of precious metals or none at all. Iron, when oxidized, gives the well-known rust, copper and its alloys give a blue-green coating called patina.

To prevent such a ring from oxidizing, you need to protect it as much as possible from contact with water, salt and aggressive chemicals. You can, of course, take the jewelry to a workshop so that it can be covered with a layer of a more inert metal, but in the case of cheap jewelry, such expenses are definitely not justified.

You can protect silver from the appearance of a dark sulfide layer or white gold from scratches by rhodium plating. The product is coated with a molecular layer of rhodium and becomes much less vulnerable to aggressive influences.

How to clear a ring of foreign energy

Many people consider it necessary to clean jewelry not only from dirt, but also from negativity. It is believed that these jewelry can serve as powerful amulets and intensively accumulate negative energy.

You can cleanse the ring of bad energy in different ways: by holding it over a candle flame, in the moonlight, in running water, and so on.

The easiest way to cleanse rings of foreign energy is with salt. To do this, you need to take a small container, pour regular table salt into it and put the decoration in it. Leave it overnight, rinse, dry the jewelry – and you can safely wear it. But under no circumstances should cleaning salt be used for food, so it’s best to simply throw it away, like the container in which the cleaning was done.

We often inherit jewelry. However, this is not only beauty, luxury and memory – it is also a certain energy, and not necessarily favorable for the new owners. How to clean rings from someone else’s bad energy?

Is it necessary to remove negativity from rings and other jewelry and why?

Let’s simulate the situation. Let’s say you inherited two engagement rings from your grandmother. Antique and incredibly valuable, with sapphires inside. You want to get married in them, because they are truly incredibly beautiful and seem to be made for your fingers! However, you know that neither her marriage nor that of her great-grandmother (from whom she, in turn, received her wedding rings) was happy and ended badly. Somewhere you read or heard that objects absorb energy and then can ruin someone’s life. And now you, seemingly not believing in all these “fairy tales,” at the same time have doubts. Is it necessary to cleanse the energy of the ring or is this the lot of particularly suspicious people?

The situation may be slightly different, but the essence is the same: you get other people’s jewelry, and you are wary of the prospect of wearing them – you never know. Experts say that people who are afraid of the energy absorbed and given off by a ring, chain or something else are indeed right.

This is especially true for wedding rings, which must be cleansed of foreign energy. These objects are most vulnerable to the influence of human energy because they are always in contact with his aura. And if someone was unhappy, then the wedding ring or, say, the ring that he wore for a long time will turn into a thing that brings misfortune or destroys the aura, and, consequently, life.

You need to clean rings of negativity when wearing not only other people’s jewelry, but also your own, personally purchased jewelry. People also don’t need the burden of their own everyday burden. Moreover, if a person cannot boast of powerful energy, then it would not hurt him to clean even a new ring in order to rid it of the influence of those who had it during the process of manufacturing and selling.

Fire, water and. or How to clean rings from alien energy

Cleaning the energy of a ring (including a wedding ring) – as well as other jewelry “with history” – is not difficult and does not require special abilities and skills from a person. You can use the help of the element that you consider most trustworthy and with which you are most friendly.

1. Water

The easiest way to drive away unnecessary energy is with the power of running water. To do this, you need to attach a bag with jewelry to the tap and keep it under the stream – the longer, the more reliable the cleaning. However, in the case of some stones (for example, painted) and copper alloys that are not protected by coatings, this number will not work: their appearance can be very significantly damaged.

2. Light

This method is also not for all stones, since some of the “picky” ones do not like direct sunlight (for example, citrine or amethyst, yellow topaz). Therefore, you need to make inquiries in advance about how a particular stone relates to such sunbathing. If they are not contraindicated for him, then all that needs to be done to cleanse the jewelry from the negative energy of the previous owners is to put them on the windowsill (not in the bedroom) for several days and let the sun and moonlight work on them.

3. Fire

The cleansing power of a candle flame can be helpful in this case too. Just keep in mind that not all stones like heating either. It is possible to clean rings and other jewelry using an imaginary fire, although this may be more difficult for many people. You will still need a lit candle: you need to look at it long enough for the flame to be imprinted on the retina. How to understand this? If you move your gaze to another place, there will still be a candle in your eyes. It is with this imaginary light that you need to illuminate the decoration.

4. Sound

Certain sound waves also have a cleansing effect, including those produced by a bell. The biggest solution is to make the jewelry being cleaned “listen” to a real bell ringing. But you can also turn on the corresponding recording or make do with the ringing of a miniature bell.

5. Salt

Salt is known as a substance that can effectively absorb negative energy. The magic spice will also help in the case of rings. You just need to immerse them in crystals, hold them for a day, and then, without touching the salt, take them out (pick them up, for example, with a pen). Spent salt must be disposed of, and it is advisable that it be immediately away from the house.

6. “Comprehensive” ritual for cleaning jewelry from negativity

If you want to deal a “massive blow” to the bad energy of wedding rings and other jewelry, follow these steps.

  • Pour spring water into a wooden bowl and add three tablespoons of salt – preferably sea or pink Himalayan. Place the rings and place the bowl on the window sill during the full moon. Let it stay like this for 48 hours. The waning moon will help draw out bad energies from jewelry. If you have rock crystal, you can throw that in the bowl too.
  • Then take out your wedding rings or simple rings and hold them over the flame and smoke of a white candle, imagining white light streaming onto them from your third eye (between your eyebrows).
  • At the end of the ritual, place the rings that you cleanse from bad energy in the ground – in a pot in which some healthy plant is growing, and leave it until the new moon.
  • Then rinse them under running water, dry them – and they will be as good as new and will not harm you in any way!

How often do you clean your rings from energy – someone else’s and your own? Approximately once a year or immediately after your jewelry had to go through an unpleasant event with you, for example, a funeral, serious illness, problems at work, and so on.
