I was using jewlery cleaner but the rings never got as clean as when i take them to the jeweler to clean them.

I just bought a little sonic cleaner from amazon. It was about $25 and omg my rings are so sparkly!

@MrsWishyWashy:  Yep…I don’t have one myself, but from everything I’ve heard (and just kinda the obviousness of how they work), those cleaners are the best!

my jeweler gave me a little tub of cleaner with a basket inside (identical to what is sold in stores but made for the jeweler) and told me to use that. He also said if I ever want it cleaned just to bring it in and they will clean it. So I’m sure sure other than to use a cleaner solution made for diamonds? I have also heard jewelry steamers are a good investment and I am considering one.

My fiance got this sonic cleaning system when he purchased my ring fro the jeweler that you fill with jewelery cleaner and it vibrates to really clean the ring, which also came with a small brush to get in my setting because it’s split shank, but he also told us that windex is great too. I ran out of cleaner and have been to lazy to go buy more so I’ve been putting windex on the brush and it works lovely!!! I never heard of toothpaste, that’s interesting!

Rubbing alcohol…been cleaning my diamonds and CZ’sforever inrubbing alcohol with a soft baby/kid toothbrush. I have never had a CZ cloud up and if it does, the rubbing alcohol brings it back to life.

Put a dash of baking soda in warm water and swoosh your ring around in it and, if need be use a soft toothbrush with this mix and rinse throughly.  The gem will look unbelievable after that.  Trust.

I use a little warm water, some dish soap and a soft bristled toothbrush.

The home ultra sonics and steamers really don’t do that much. The true professional ones cost thousands and the especially high pressured steamers which really make diamonds sparkle can be dangerous to have in a home. Plus, stones should be checked under magnification before using them because they will blow stones right out if they are loose. Soft toothbrush and dawn dish soap to remove the grease is best bet. Otherwise, take to your jewelry for professional sonic and cleaning!!! Nothing else comes close

I boil a mug of water in the microwave, toss in some dish soap, and then drop my ring in that until the water cools. Then I just use a little toothbrush and rinse. My ring always sparkles like new afterwards.

I let it soak in hot water with soap for a little, then a soft toothbrush and toothpaste without the little bead like things. My grandma swears buy it and my ring sparkles like new after that. I take the soft toothbrush to it every time I was my hands in the bathroom at home.

Toothbrush, soft liquid soap & warm water, uusally.  I have tried toothpaste and it does make my ring extra sparkly. I’ve also tried mircobead type facial wash. That worked really well, too.
