I clean mine every few days.  Once a week she sits in a shot glass full of distilled white vinegar and then goes for a swim in the ultrasonic.

You aren’t nuts! It’s good to keep your ring clean. I clean mine every morning in the jewelry solution (ammonia solution) the store gave Fiance with my ring. I just let the ring soak in there while I brush my teeth (2 minutes), then blot it on a towel. My ring is a simple solitaire so I don’t need to get in there with a brush or anything though.

I clean mine once a week or whenever it needs it!  It really depends on where I am going and if it needs it!  I don’t think you are crazy!  It is good to clean you ring in case you get something on it.

I think you’re nuts! Laughing But I was nuts too! When Fiance and I first got engaged, my ring got a bath every day. If not twice a day. I took it off to do anything.

Now that we’ve been engaged for over a year, I’ll clean it every week or so or when we’re going out somewhere nice. I still take it off to shower and sleep but aside from that it stays on my finger.

oh man, I clean mine every few months. Oops. But I’m also afraid of knocking a stone loose from cleaning, etc. so that’s one reason why I don’t.

Absolutely not nuts, LOL.  I love a good sparkly ring (drives me crazy when I see women in RL who have these amazing rings that don’t sparkle under the grime…I want to attack their hands with a squirt bottle and toothbrush!!)  I’d be careful though, I’ve heard that cleaning a ring too frequently can actually wear away the metal.  I don’t know how true this is, but it might be something to look into (especially if it’s white gold with the rhodium dipping and all of that).  I had a diamond ring given to me by an ex and I lost a stone the very first time I cleaned it…so I’m crazy careful with my jewelry now.  I soak mine about once a week in Dawn dish soap and hot (not too hot) water (I’ve heard this is the best for a CZ number like mine, but it makes my diamonds sparkle too), or if I get something on them.  For the most part, washing my hands a zillion times a day keeps it looking good.

Fiance just bought me an ultrasonic cleaner and I am OBSESSED with it. I clean not only my e-ring but all my jewelry at least once a week. What can I say…I am a sucker for sparkly jewelry!

I had some issues with my ring right off the bat, so it was getting cleaned every time it went to the jewelers, but I did it for the first time at home today and I might get addicted myself. It’s soooo different when it’s freshly cleaned. I was distracted by it all day actually. I used a few drops of Shaklee Basic H in about 1/4 cup of water and soaked it about 4 times and scrubbed in between soaks. Mine is very intricate and has pave all down the sides, so it needed extra soaking time.

caution: I’d be careful cleaning with solvents every single day if you have rhodium plated rings. 

I just run my ring & a toothbrush under hot water and scrub it once a week or so. it looks great and I don’t have to use any cleanser or anything.

I keep a soft toothbrush in the shower and scrub my ring every other day or so with the toothbrush and whatever suds are on my hands from the shower. When I get dressed I polish it with my fingers and a shirt sleeve or scarf or whatever I’m wearing haha.
