Professionally cleaned–twice a year. They also check all the prongs at that point. Cleaned by me, at home–maybe once a month, if I remember! I do agree that they sparkle so much after being professionally cleaned–I love it!

I don’t get mine cleaned at the place all that often…before big events (like the holidays or if I’m going to a wedding or something) or about every 6 months.

I clean mine at home almost every day, though, since I love the way it glitters and sparkles when it isn’t gooped up with hand cream and dish soap!  The ammonia (ammonium?)/water mix works wonderfully, I just soak in the little red jar for awhile, scrub with a (clean) toothbrush, rinse, and let shine!

I use to clean it with a mix of windex and water, but my husband just bought me an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner & it is AMAZING!

I thought my rings were clean, but then I popped them in this baby and you can see all the sediment at the bottom after it was done. I was shocked that even after my cleaning w/ windex/water that it still was that dirty.

So now I’m hooked to this thing!

I have to go in every 6 months for a “check-up” so I get it cleaned then but I’ll normally also pop in if I’m in the mall and have it cleaned. If it took any longer than a minute I probably wouldn’t but its quick, easy and free so why not?

I clean mine pretty often at home.  I have an aquamarine stone ring and it doesn’t take long before it starts looking clouding.

I use warm water, dish soap and a soft toothbrush. 

I haven’t gotten professional cleaned yet but I plain on it soon.

best way to clean your ring at home would be to soak it in hot hot water for about 2 minutes, then soak it in window cleaner for about 10 minutes, then use a toothbrush and the window cleaner to scrub the ring for 1-3 minutes. soak in hot hot water again for about 3 minutes. then using the toothbrush rinse the ring under hot running water and scrub it, then rinse the ring.

 

it takes some patience but in the end the ring will sparkle just like a professional job

I get it cleaned at the jewelry store at least once a month.
