How to Polish Platinum Rings

Platinum, a popular choice for engagement and wedding rings, is known for its strength, durability and ability to resist permanent scratches. With normal wear and age, a platinum ring will develop a patina that dulls its shiny appearance. While some people may prefer this patina, others will opt to polish their platinum rings. Polishing platinum is a simple process that can be completed at home.

Step 1

Wash the platinum ring with mild soap and warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Step 2

Apply a natural jewelry tarnish cleaner to the ring, following the product instructions. Natural cleaners will contain only natural ingredients, such as plant-based extracts.

Step 3

Rinse the ring with warm water and polish with a professional jewelry polishing cloth.

Step 4

Rinse the ring with warm water to remove any residue from the polishing cloth, and dry it thoroughly with a soft, clean cloth.


  • Never use harsh cleaners or polishers on your platinum ring.
