Tell him you pressure-washed your ring at the car wash. 🙂
So I was washing my car the other day, and it looked so pretty and sparkly when I was almost done. I was about to apply the low-pressure spot free rinse, and caught a glimpse of my ring… which was looking a little tired. So I held my hand out and made a fist, and lightly sprayed my hand with the washer. I mean, if my skin can take the pressure, I’m pretty sure a diamond and setting can, right? I haven’t seen it this sparkly since the day he gave it to me, lol.
When I saw Fiance later, he even commented on how sparkly it was, so I told him what I did. He. turned. white. I checked the setting, and it clearly couldn’t escape my finger while my hand was in the fist postion. He’s still a little peeved that I would wash my ring at the car wash though, so I went out and got some professional ring cleaner.

@bells219: LMAO that’s something I would do. I think more ladies are going to start pressure washing their rings thanks to your genius.
The only time Darling Husband ever reacted like that was right after I got my ring; I told him I freaked out for about a couple of hours because I was doing laundry and after everything was washed, realized my ring wasn’t on my finger. I told him I found it under the bed where I was sorting clothes but he gave me the scariest look I’ve ever seen and my husband is so sweet and nonthreatening he puts newborn puppies to shame. Then he gravely told me “Be careful with that ring.”

You are BRAVE! I would be too scared to even try it! I lost a stone on my wedding band just using a toothbrush! (Granted, I hate the company we got my ring from because I swear they refuse to set the stones properly. If I could afford it I would sell it and get a new one from a different place.) Plus, my center stone is an heirloom and it is unreplacable. However… it does sound like a super easy way to clean your ring! lol

I lost skin pressure washing my car once. I have a scar on my hand!
The low pressure rinse is obviously not as bad but I definitely do not recommend this! It would be really easy to damage prongs, etc. Jewelry cleaner or dishsoap & warm water with a soft baby toothbrush is much safer!

bells219: pics? Would love to see! Sounds brilliant but my rings are pave so that’s a no-go for me.
Sometimes I wish I had chosen a lovely solitaire or three stone.
