I go the simple and cheap route for ring cleaning. I use a small (child size) “soft” toothbrush with a small amount of Johnson’s baby shampoo. I use hot water and softly brush the ring in circular motions. Makes my diamonds shine so bright! (for reference I have a white gold ring with diamonds.)

@dfutureNP:   My FI ordered a Jewel Jet for me two days ago.  It hasn’t arrived yet but when it does, and I have tried it I will post a review!  

So far I’ve been doing the ammonia/water soak followed by brushing with a soft toothbrush and warm water rinse, then dry with a lint free cloth.  My center stone is bezel set and my current cleaning method doesn’t get the little bits out from right next to the bezel – so I can see a bit of crud around that area.  There are channel set diamonds on the shank and they clean up beautifully with the current method.

I <3 the jewel jet. Many people have told me the new black model doesn’t work as well as the older red version, so I picked mine up used off of eBay. I work in an emergency room, so I need to not only clean it for vanity reasons, bit also to kill germs very well. I let it sit in the jewelry cleaner, lightly scrub it with a used toothbrush, and then I use the Jewel Jet. Steam dries quickly so there aren’t any water marks left over.

Now I can enjoy professionally clean bling bling at home without visiting my jeweler 🙂

 

I def recommend! Especially since your screen name suggests you also need to kill germs like I do 😉

i put it in a glass with soap (ive found dishwashing soap works really well) and soak it in there for a little, then use a toothbrush to clean it

@dfutureNP:  I would be careful to use a steamer if you have a lot of small stones in your ring as daily use could make the stones pop out…I use a jewelry cleaner that I found online (and is also sold in drug stores and jewelry stores)..it’s amazing and cleaned my ring so much better than any other soap/water mixture!

My fiance bought me this set as part of my Xmas gift last year:

And I love it! I use it about once a week to clean my ring, sometimes I add the cleaner that comes with it, sometimes I do it with just the water. It’s amazing. I can use it for our watches, other jewelry and my FI’s glasses, too. I highly recommend it.

Steam won’t make melee pop out any more than daily use. I think it’s ultrasonic cleaning systems you’re thinking of. Those ultrasonic ones vibrate the jewelery to get the tiny clogged dirt out, and THAT vibrating will knock diamonds out. Steam is less abrasive than using a brush.

I love Connoisseurs, though! I just bought a few on eBay 🙂 It’s the jewelry cleaner I’m using.

@dfutureNP:  I tried out this prpoduct this product at a bridal show.  It is natural and gentle on almost all your jewelry.  It comes with a liquid detergent to clean the stone and a tarnish cream to clean the metal.  It also includes a brush to scrub the crevices and a cloth to dry it.

I let my ring soak while showering and I clean the metal weekly.  It works wonders and is very inexpensive (one kit lasts almost 1 year!)

I went into Tiffany’s and bought their ring cleaner since it was the only thing that I could ever buy in that store lol!  It works really well and was $20, I use it once a week and I agree with the other posters that a soft baby toothbrush works great.
