Why don’t you get it cleaned the day before the wedding? I ran into a jeweler’s the day of my wedding, asked nicely, and they cleaned it right there

I am amazed at how beautiful my ring is when I get it cleaned lol. I am getting mine cleaned the day before the rehersal dinner and only wearing it for the rehersal for that reason.

I”ll probably get mine cleaned three or four days before the wedding and then not wear it til the day of.

I was just thinking about this yesterday. I love how my ring sparkles right after it gets cleaned and I want it to look great in my pics and next to the clean wedding band. Can you take your ring in the day before your wedding? I know that almost any jewlery store will clean it for free even if you did not purchase it from them. I am living in Virginia but getting married in Ohio but I know a really nice jewlery store in Ohio where I will prob. take it to get cleaned the day before my wedding.

You can also DIY (this is from a fellow bee, but I forget who) – it works GREAT (even looks better than when I get my ring cleaned at the jeweler):

Put your ring in a small coffee cup.  Spray with 5-6 squirts of windex.  Add 3-4 drops of dish soap (non-lotion kind).  Pour in 1/2 c. hot water (right out of the tea kettle is best).  Let sit until water is cool (about 20 minutes).  Pour off water, rinse ring.  You can brush with an old toothbrush if you have a really intricate ring to get rid of any build-up from daily living.

Works like a charm!

I had mine cleaned the day before, but then I was really careful about keeping it clean.  You could get it cleaned next week and then make sure to take it off every time you wash your hands, do dishes, shower, put on lotion…  You could even take it off as soon as you get home every day and only wear it to go out.  It would probably stay pretty clean!

I’m having a DW so I’m getting it cleaned like a week before and then the day of I’m going to just give it a quick clean with the cleaner I bought at the Jewelers~

Mrs. Nachos has a great post about self cleaning – I would probably just do that!  I had mine redipped a couple weeks prior and wore it as is the day of.  Mrs. Nachos’ method seems pretty failsafe though!

I cleaned mine at home the day before using a similar technique as what @septcabride decribed.  It was nice and sparkly on my wedding day and looked gorgeous next to my new band!  🙂

I’m having mine re-rhodiumed and cleaned (and the wedding band resized) a few weeks before the wedding. And instead of bothering to get it re-cleaned the day before, I’m just going to wear my “placeholder ring” (aka the CZ we bought after we ordered my ring, since it wouldn’t be in for 4 weeks – it is now my vacation ring).

Between cleanings at the jewelry store, I use windex to clean mine. I just make sure to rinse it off really well.
