Step 1. Take some drops of the dish soap into lukewarm water bowl. Mix the soap gently. You can also add club soda or sodium-free seltzer water. The carbonation level of those liquids are able to loosen any accumulated debris and dirt.
Step 2. If the gold ring contains some stones, don’t use any boiling water as they are easy cracked when being exposed to drastic or rapid temperature change. Do not also use any cold water as it will create tougher grime.
Step 3. Soak the gold ring into the solution and let it sit for awhile at least 30 minutes. When being soaked with lukewarm water and liquid soap, this solution will be able to reach any parts of the ring especially the crevices and the cracks to loosen up the accumulated dirt.
Step 4. Then, after 30 minutes, scrub the gold ring using the toothbrush. Brush all parts of the ring particularly the crannies and nooks as the dirt and debris are accumulated more in these areas. You can use special brushes dedicated to gold ring cleaning, but you can also use any soft brushes.

Ensure the water is in lukewarm state. When you rinse the gold ring under the sink, make sure to cover or plug the drain to prevent the jewelry slipping out into the drain if you accidentally drop it.
