Congratulations on getting engaged! I am also recently engaged and had questions about ring cleaning myself. I didn’t want to use harsh chemicals, and didnt want the hassle of dropping the ring off at the jeweler. After trying out a few online suggestions I ended up just using dish detergent and warm water solution. However I stumbled upon an awesome gentler way with a skin care product that you probably already own! Bioderma! My solitaire platinum diamond ring with side diamonds sparkle like the first day I received the ring!

Let me know if your thoughts! Now I just need a way to polish thr band to make it look new again….any suggestions?

SimplyQuaint: I’m a big fan of baking soda, mild dish soap, warm water and a soft bristle toothbrush! I have a Tacori set with the “bloom” so the toothbrush is vital for me due to all the crevices 🙂

I’d sooner use some kind of mild dishwashing liquid (Ecover etc.) if I were concerned about chemicals – micellar water is a little pricey in my opinion! But then again I clean my ring daily, and Bioderma is much more expensive in the US than in Europe.

cranraspberry: I agree and wouldnt recommend buying bioderma just for cleaning your rings! Only if you happen to have this cleanser on hand. Therr are other micellar products at drugstores by loreal I think for much cheaper!

A toothbrush with a smidge of dawn works for me. I’m not going out to buy something specifically for my ring when I’ve got dawn constantly stocked.

SimplyQuaint: Aw thanks girl! That avatar is just the stock photo but that is the same one I have. It’s kind of dirty right now though as you can see so I am going to have to use these tips 🙂 And your ring is gorgeous! Such a diff in the sparkle after the bioderma too!
