@wanabeabee:  I don’t know where he got it from, but where my FI got mine, they will clean it for me. It would be worth asking him.

Soak it with hot water with a drop of disp soap for 30 minutes, then use a toothbrush to clean it.  

 

If you want extra spark, after you wash it with dish soap.  Spray once with windex and continues clean it with toothbrush.  Just make sure you raise it carefully, so no windex stay on your diamond.   

The trick is blow dry it so that there is no water mark on it.

Yea, same as @TeeBee25, I just bring it to the shop when I’m in the neighborhood and they clean it up for me! I figure the pros know best!

I second the dish soap and toothbrush suggestion. That ways worked for me, then I got a Diamond Dazzle Stik and my life changed, so I also recommend that.

@wanabeabee:  Definitely. I got mine for 10$ at Bed Bath and Beyond and its amazing! It has a brush on the end like those liquid lip glosses and it gets into every little nook and cranny of my engagement ring. It has a bead-set shank and a double halo, so there’s lots of places for dirt to settle in and it cleans so well!! Looks brand-new after I clean it.

@wanabeabee:  I have a platinum and diamond-encrusted ring from Cartier (the ballerine).  They cautioned me against using anything harsher than mild hand soap to clean it myself (definitely not a toothbrush as that can produce scratching).  I bring it in every few months to the jeweler to have it steam cleaned, and it looks stunning afterwards.  You can probably have that done at most jewlery shops.

The shop where we got my ring gave us a little jar of cleaner with it.  You just soak it in there overnight and it comes out sparkly.  I do it maybe once every two weeks.  I’ve seen similar clearners at stores like Walgreens, Bed Bath and Beyond, all sorts of places.

I soak mine in water and dish soap. It comes out sparkling every time!

I also have the diamond dazzle stick. It works really well but I think it isn’t incredibly necessary for my engagement ring. The brush is really good at getting into nooks and crannies and I have a simple solitaire.

My jewler told me to use a soft bristle tooth brush and toothpaste! Then use a hair dryer to make sure it’s completely dry. Sounds a bit silly but honestly my ring sparkles like no tomorrow after! 🙂 And it’s cheap and quick! My FMIL does it too.

I soak mine in Windex while I’m in the shower.  Then I scrub it with a soft tooth brush and a little Windex,  before I’m ready to put it on.

I use dish soap and one of those little brushes that came in some jewelery cleaner (I don’t use the cleaner anymore though, just the brush). The bristles are soft enough to use on jewelery and small so they get into the tiny places.

Another Diamond Dazzle Stik user here! I love that thing! The little brush works great, getting under the setting, and all the little nooks and crannies in my jewelry. Works wonders under my stone on my very high setting! Smile
