I bought an ultrasonic cleaner from amazon for around $45 and it works really well! You just put the ring in the machine with water (or water and dish soap if you want a depeer clean) and the ultrasonic vibrations remove any dirt, grime, fingerprints etc. I highly recommend it! I use it about once a week to keep my ring extra sparkly.

scarlettbegonias87:  I have jewelry cleaner, but honestly dawn dish soap and a toothbrush work great. If I want it really clean, I’ll let it soak in the cleaner for a few minutes and then gently scrub it with soap and the toothbrush. Then I rinse it with warm water. Make sure you get the underside of the diamond well to make sure it’s really clean and sparkly 🙂

I’m wondering the same! There is some dirt between the diamond and the halo that is driving me nuts! I have been using dish soap and a tooth brush but still no luck gettnig it out.  I’m hoping some bee’s have better advice then me.

I use a Diamond Dazzle Stick. It’s like $8, and it’s still going strong 6 months after I bought it.

I also use soap, warm water and an old, soft toothbrush. 

 

Make sure to plug the sink before you hold your ring over it. It would suck to let it slip and have to retreive it from the drain

Dish soap and a toothbrush is all I do. I like to soak it in the soapy water for a few that give the ol’ toothbrush a whirl. After that a few squirts of windex and she’s ready for a wipe down. 

As for polishing,  a jeweler used a sterling silver polishing cloth on the band and it looked so much better. I have white gold and he said it was totally safe. Has anyone else ever polished their ring themselves?

scarlettbegonias87:  A small eyeshadow brush (cleaned first) or soft paintbrush I have found to be useful for getting in crevaces. If you can get any debris out, the ring will sparkle like it did when you got it. I haven’t purchased any additional cleaner.

I mix together 50/50 warm water and vinegar, add a few drops of dish soap in to my little 2 oz jar, leave my jewelry in there for however long I need to, and use a toothbrush to scrub it all clean, rinse with water and dry of with paper towel or cheese cloth immediately to reduce or prevent water spots. ^.^ For heavyier duty sessions, after taking the jewelry out I’ll put some baking soda on and scrub with the dish soap and vinegar mixture.

scarlettbegonias87:  sometimes I just out my ring in a strainer and put it in the too shelf of my dishwasher lolol. It works magic! Steamed and heat dried just like a jeweler. Now I just need a polishing wheel haha

I use the jewelry cleaner my jewelry store gave me and then use a toothpick to get at the lower part of the diamond. I don’t have pave or anything though.

Warm water, original green ‘Fairy Liquid’ (if you know what that is)?! and a child’s soft toothbrush. It’s gentle and it works a treat. It was recommended to me by a nice lady who worked in Harrods, I never use anything else!
