@gpiglet:  I usually just take my ring into a jewlery store to be cleaned whenever I’m in the mall…and then i take my ring into the store FI bought it from (its about 30 min away) every few months to be checked for the warranty and to be cleaned there too 🙂 Its free…and its (almost) always clean! haha

A kids toothbrush (used only for jewelry), dove dish soap, and warm water works wonders.  I’ve had my rings cleaned once by a jeweler and I personally think my method worked a lot better than their machine.

I would say not.  Soaking and scrub with a baby tooth brush, or steam.

My fav thing to soak in is distilled water, (hot so you can still touch it)  a drop if soap, and a splash of vinegar.

Heres what I do..

– get a cup and put room temp water in it

– pour some dish soap in it

– spray some windex in it

– mix

– put the ring in it for 15 minutes

– grab a toothbrush (i only use for this) and gently scrub under any spots that collect crap..

– put the ring back in and swirl it around for a few seconds

– rinse ring under water

 

AND DONE, SPARKLES LIKE NEW!  I dont think u need to spend the money on a cleaner

My jeweler told me that the next best thing to bringing it into them was shaving cream and a toothbrush!

My jeweler has an ultrasonic cleaner (commercial one) along with a number of chain stores as well.  I asked for an ultrasonic cleaner for Christmas and I’m getting it. :). They aren’t harmful that I know of and up until this day it hasn’t ruined my ring.  

My vote is yes, I would get one.  For me it’ll be put to good use.  I have an ultrasonic toothbrush and the ultrasonic face brush and LOVE them.

 

GL!  🙂

@gpiglet:  Our jeweler gave me a little container of liquid jewelry cleaner. I drop my ring in for 30 seconds, then take it out and use a soft-bristled toothbrush and lukewarm water to gently clean it. I think people say a baby toothbrush because it’s super soft and has fine bristles which will get into little nooks on your ring. 

I think the ultrasonic cleansers are a waste. Our jeweler uses a steam machine to clean my ring. Short of having one of those, save your money and use a toothbrush and cleaner.

Another bee who uses a baby toothbrush here! It seriously works wonders. It makes my ring sparkle like new!

@gpiglet:  I think a baby toothbrush is recommended mainly for the size. It’s easier to get into tight spaces with a teeny little brush. I had a regular toothbrush for my ring when I had a solitaire, but now that my setting has a lot more stones and little areas to squeeze into a baby toothbrush works better for me.

I have a Diamond Dazzle Stick (on another bee’s recommendation) and I use it on my ring once or twice a week since I have a sapphire and it gets grimey a lot faster. It works wonderfully and lasts a long time! You can get it at Walmart or Amazon if you want to order online. Soap and a toothbrush works fine too, but the Dazzle Stick is more convenient because I just keep in in my purse.

I think the Dazzlestick is just rubbing alcohol, if I remember correctly.

I have an ultrasonic machine and lost 2 pave stones in it.  Fortunately they were at the bottom of the basket.

Now I just use Dawn soap, hot water and a toothbrush.
