I  either use straight vinegar and a soft toothbrush.. only problem is, i feel like my hand then smells like vinegar. works great tho to clean.. OR i use ammonia and a soft toothbrush… either one works great!

I put a drop of Dawn into warm water, and let the ring sit for a few… then clean with baby toothbrush.  🙂

I soak mine in a shot glass with Windex (you can add a bit of hot water if you want) for about 20 minutes, then take it out and use an eyeshadow brush to clean the nooks and crannies, then rinse! It works SOOO well and was what the jeweler recommended so it’s safe.

I’m trying to figure this out for sterling silver.  I have some pieces I have to clean.

I soak mine in a combo of Ammonia, Mr. Clean and water (equal parts) for a minute or two then go over with a soft tooth brush in warm water to rinse off and its like there brand new!

@MissXray:  Are your rings tarnished at all? You might need to use silver polish on them. I’ve also heard of people using baking soda & water to make a paste but I’ve never tried.

@MissXray:  Of course polish might get dicey if you have stones to protect–baking soda or something might be safer.
