    Maybe it is just me but I am not sticking my diamond ring in oil, sorry. The lady at my jewelry store says Windex is the best way to keep the diamond shiny and I have jewelry cleaner and a baby toothbrush as well for when the setting needs a good cleaning.

    Yeah I just stick mine in a bowl with dish soap and gently scrub for a couple seconds…that gets it squeaky clean.  Dunno how I’d feel about sticking it in oil….I’ll take your word on it OP!

    Windex and a soft toothbrush is my go to also.  AND, my ring isn’t going near a sink, plugged or not..just sayin!

    seems pretty complicated. I just use dish soap and a kid’s toothbrush.

    @Supersleuth:  Hmmmm…I’m super leary to put my baby in oil. Will have to ask the jeweler about that one.

    I just use toothpaste and a toothbrush. The fluoride ions in tooth paste helps to pull out all the gunk.

    Or I could just keep scrubbing my ring with dawn.

    @shortie1848:  I agree, But I still voted no.  I dont agree with putting it in oil, also I use cleaner my jeweler gave us and it works great.  Too each their own : )

    @Supersleuth:  I would think rubbing alcohol might be a good solvent in your case as well, although I’ve never tried it (I don’t have this issue since I have a moissy).  Usually just some hand soap and a soft toothbrush once or twice a year keeps my rings clean.
