One of the most resilient metals that may be used to make jewelry is titanium. Here are some cleaning and maintenance suggestions for your titanium rings and other jewelry.

Steps on Cleaning Your Titanium Jewelry

Your titanium jewelry may be cleaned in three easy steps:

  1. Pour some mild dishwashing liquid into a bowl of lukewarm water.
  2. Let the titanium jewelry sit in the mixture for approximately five minutes, and then use a soft cloth to soften the dirt from the items gently.
  3. After cleaning your jewelry, rinse it with water and pat it dry with a soft cloth (do not air dry your titanium jewelry as it may cause them to spot).

Ammonia, as well as jewelry cleaning products available at the store, can be used to clean titanium.

Additionally, you can use an ultrasonic cleaner to clean your titanium jewelry. Keep in mind that it's not advised for your metal objects to come into touch with the ultrasonic cleaner's hard surface while it's cleaning.

You can use a rubber-covered cup hook inserted into a wine cork to hang your titanium rings for men and other jewelry. After that, float the hung jewelry in the cleaning solution, so it doesn't touch the bottom of the container.

Use only water, soap, and ammonia on rings or jewelry made of colored (anodized) titanium. Harsher cleaning agents can fade anodized titanium.

Steps on Cleaning Colored Titanium Jewelry

You should take extra care when cleaning titanium jewelry that has undergone color-changing anodizing. Vigorous rubbing or scrubbing may damage the colorful layer of anodized titanium.

Observe these procedures when cleaning colored titanium jewelry:

  1. To eliminate dirt, soak the jewelry in warm water and soap solution for a while. To avoid damaging the pieces' colored layer, do not scrub the pieces. Use water to wash the jewelry.
  2. After that, immerse the objects in ammonia for a few minutes. As though you were cleaning your glasses, lightly pat them with a clean towel while exerting very little pressure. Avoid vigorously cleaning the jewelry because doing so could harm the oxide layer that gives the item its color.
  3. Wash the jewelry in water and dry it with a soft, clean towel. To blast your parts dry, you can alternatively use a can of compressed air. If you don't want your jewelry to end up looking spotted, don't let titanium air dry.

You can have your anodized titanium jewelry re-anodized if you notice any fading. Jewelers who deal with titanium frequently may charge you for such a service. 

Your titanium ring can be cleaned once a week, twice a week, or once a month. Invest in a bit of jewelry polishing cloth if you're seeking something to maintain your ring organized daily. These are available online and in numerous stores that specialize in selling rings. Use a jewelry cloth to remove any accumulated dirt, minor scratches, or blemishes. You can also spend money on wax to keep your ring clean and gleaming in between cleanings.
