    I need to go really badly!  I didn’t think my ring was that dirty either, until we tried on wedding bands last weekend.  I tried on the matching wedding band to my e-ring and put my e-ring back on and was so embarrassed!  I’m not sure where to go though, because I’ve heard too many horror stories of jewelry stores switching your stone while they "clean" your ring.

    I usually clean mine at home once a week and I took to the jewelers about 5 months after we got engaged to be cleaned (got engaged in Feb 09). I’ll probably try to take in every 6 months to be cleaned and to make sure everything is ok with it.

    I got some cleaning solution (by Hagerty…it’s good stuff) with my ring and clean it anytime I figure I’m going to be showing it off 😉 So, I clean it approximately once a month, sometimes less. It always shocks me the amount of random grossness that collects on my ring. But then again, I work with kids so what should I expect…..

    I get mine cleaned every 6 months by the jewler so it doesn’t void the warranty, and clean it on my own every month or so

    I love working with my hands, crafts, outside, and I feel like my ring gets dirty so quickly. I figure FH paid quite a bit for it so I should try to keep it looking nice and try to get it cleaned once a month. I love walking out into the sun right after it gets cleaned, so sparkly!

    I clean my E-ring myself frequently. I just use a baby toothbrush & Dawn dish soap. It REALLY brings the sparkle back. I also get free cleanings through our Jewelry store. Once I finally get to wear my wedding band I’ll have to have it cleaned every 6 months because it comes with a diamond guarentee that REQUIRES it to be cleaned and inspected every 6 months to keep the warrenty going. Definitly worth the extra money. 🙂

    Mine is a bezel setting but has little ramps up the side (hard to explain) but it creates space between the ramps and the setting and very hard to clean.  So I take it to the jeweler every few months and have it cleaned.  It definitely makes a difference!

    I generally only get mine cleaned if I’m in the neighborhood of my jeweler, or if I have to go there for some other reason.

    I clean mine at home probably weekly with nonabrasive soap and a toothbrush. Then i dry it with my hairdryer set to cool. It makes it pretty darn shiny! I agree though, there is NOTHING like that jewelery store shine!!

    Sorry!  I should’ve made myself clearer before… I got things mixed around in my head and was thinking of when you have your ring re-finished, not cleaned!

    I clean mine at home every week, but have only had it cleaned twice at the jewelery store.  I actually need to get my engagement ring resized, which I’ve been meaning to do for a while now.  It’s always been a little too big, but it fits differently now that it’s sitting on top of my wedding band.  Maybe I will try to do that this week, so that I can get it cleaned, too!

    I have jewelry cleaner that I use about once a week.  I take mine to the jewelry store twice a year for a good cleaning and a polish.  I love a jewelry store clean.  It is super shiny.
