Steam … I use my shark detachable part with the concentrator but have heard others use the frother/steamer part of their cappuccino machines as well. Steam works awesome! Just be careful you don’t burn yourself … I put my ring in a cup and just steam blast it so it doesn’t fall into a sink or burn my hand.

Ammonia diluted with water. My jeweler told me this…. and mine is vintage so I suppose this has to be the safest way. I leave in the solution for 1hr but sometimes I’m in a hurry and 5 minutes does wonders! Just brush with a soft brush, rinse and Done.

A very good way is to soak in in mild dishwashing detergent and warm water for a few minutes, then gently clean it with a baby toothbrush.

Also if you can buy some cloudy ammonia and put a dab on a tissue/cloth and wipe it over your ring, it’ll sparkle like mad. Especially if there are diamonds in your ring. I know it works very well for sapphires too. Not sure about other stones.

White or apple cider vinegar that is mixed with some water. Soak it for however long, then rinse it is hot or warm water… Sparkles like new… It is gentle and strong at the same time… You can use a soft toothbrush after you soak it if necessary.

One thing I forgot to mention that I have read and have been told by a few jewelers is if you have any pave, do not use the ultrasonic cleaners that use any sort of vibration or it can loosen the tiny stones.

@jujee:  I use this and it works wonderfully! 


My husband is also planning on buying me an ultrasonic cleaner (about $40) in the next few weeks. But I’ve always used that recipe and it’s great!

Anyone know if espresso machine steam is safe for pave?
