    Soooooo worth it!

    I got the cheapest one I could find: http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Ultrasonic-Jewelry-Eyeglass-Cleaning/dp/B001DKDAVW/

    I clean my e-ring in it every other day or so and my other jewelry whenever it’s looking a bit icky. My ring doesn’t have pave, though. I have cleaned all my mom’s jewelry in there, including rings with tiny diamonds, and everything was fine, but that was a one-time thing and I’m not sure if it’d become a problem with multiple cleanings.

    I can’t remember whah model mine is. It’s veru much like the first one posted and I love it. Use it every day ! I manage a restaurant so grease build up under the stones was a really issue. i juts pop my rings in for about 3 min everyday while I am in the shower or doing my make up and issue is solved.

    Looks like something I should invest in considering I scrub my knuckles raw cleaning my ring with Dawn soap and a soft toothbrush! 

    Is every day ultrasonic cleaning for a 6 prong solitaire too much?

    BridalMonkey2014:  I’ve done that with my ultrasonic cleaner and a six prong solitaire….ring is spaaaaarkly lol! I also work a lot in a lab/outdoors so I was nervous about what was getting on my ring. It hasn’t hurt mine any. 

    My ultrasonic cleaner is a Hagerty. Free through my jeweler, and I get free ‘refills’ on the cleaning concentrate stuff. I like it a lot, but it’s a little loud. I think it’s a $25 machine.

    Oh, and I asked my jeweler about pave, and channel set – he said that there’s really no difference with pave if it’s done correctly. There’s just a ton more diamonds set in, so you have a higher statistical chance of one falling out than one big diamond. I’d keep it on low settings and use it for pave anyway.

    BridalMonkey2014:  I doubt it. I usually do it every other, but sometimes end up doing it every single day just cuz. And it’s been fine.

    WestCoastV:  

    If you have pave setting, I do not recommended you to use an ultrasonic cleaner to clean your ring. You will be risking to make the side stone fall out from your setting.  My jeweller told me not to use it.. and if I really have to use the cleaner, do it no more than once a month. 

     

    HOWEVER, if you have the extra money, buy steam cleaner for your ring. I bought one and loving it.  it make my set so sparkle.

    WestCoastV:  if you have delicate pave i would NOT recommend a ultrasonic!  You wouldt want to loosen your pave!  Get a steam cleaner instead.

     

    Here’s my process

    Take a drop of dawn and put in a mug.  

    Add water to fill cup halfway

    Microwave the water for 1-1 1/2 mins

    drop in rings 

    let soak 20-30 min

    use baby toothbrush and get around the prongs

    rinse

    fire up the jewel jet (steam cleaner)

    steam the crap out of e ring and wedding band

    use microfiber cloth to make sure its dry

     

    ***always looking brand new!  I do this 1-2 times a week and if i feel it needs it.  I get compliments all the time on how sparkly it is haha.

    WestCoastV:  I was really skepical, but had a hard time finding ways to keep my channel set ring really sparkly. I bought one off of Amazon and it’s AMAZING. My ring looks brand new every time I use, which is like every other day at this point because it looks so good.

    Also, the one I bought was cheap and still does the trick. It’s this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DKDAVW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    FI bought this diamond cleaning stick last weekend and it works GREAT!! http://www.amazon.com/Connoisseurs-1050-Diamond-Dazzle-Stik/dp/B00459VM6I

    I have 28 very small side stones, 4 of which have fallen out and been replaced, so I’m very wary of cleaning methods. The stick is a brush that you wipe over your diamonds then wash it off with water. 

     

    A friend of mine also recommended this http://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Blitz-Gem-Jewelry-Cleaner/dp/B000F1MXOK/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1417640130&sr=1-2-catcorr&keywords=blitz+gem+and+jewelry+cleaner

    TheGridMonster:  gillykat824:  Thanks!  Can’t wait to see the difference because manually washing the ring is such a thing and I’m always afraid I’ll drop it down the drain!
