@Audrey2:  Very nice! But you know you can clean is at home any time. Get a baby toothbrush and dishsoap. I even had a jeweler recommend it to me. Of course sonic cleanings every now and then are nice, but you don’t have to wait for that. 🙂

It looks great – I need to get mine professionally cleaned and checked every few months or my insurance doesnt cover against losses. Im waiting till I get back to the US. I mourn the day it goes but love the day it comes back so i know exactly how you feel.

@Audrey2:  Aaahhh so shiny!

I splashed out and got myself a dip bath and a dazzle stick, and it STILL doesn’t look as shiny when I do it as it did when I got it cleaned professionally the first time!

@Audrey2:  It makes such a difference, doesn’t it?! It looks lovely!

I never get mine done professionally, as there’s nowhere local that does it on-site, so it involves going all the way into Hatton Garden >-( But, I clean it fairly frequently at home; usually once every 1-2 weeks, using a small amount of Fairy and a baby toothbrush. If it’s VERY grimey, I leave it to soak either in neat washing up liquid, or in gin (yup, gin!) for a few hours; it really gets rid of all the grime and brings it up a treat.

I’m also planning on investing in a sonic cleaner; you can get them for like £25 and for me it’d be well worth it as I have a lot of jewellery, and some of it isn’t suitable to be cleaned with a toothbrush (stones are soft and more prone to scratching).

@Audrey2:  I use the cleaner in the red container..from target/Walmart it works nicely but nothing like the jewelers clean. The dazzle stick works better but I remember a bee saying it coats the ring in a waxy substance therefore making it more prone to dirt. let me know if you find a great cleaner:)

So shiny! I clean mine at home as well but it always seems like the jeweler does a better job.

I actually just got mine cleaned yesterday as well. I have to admit that I sat at my desk and admired it in the sun light this morning for a bit.

WOW! That’s a big difference!!! Gorgeous!

I always LOVE how mine looks fresh from a pro cleaning.  No matter how I try I can never make it as brand new looking as they can!!
