My jeweler said to clean my ring once a week under warm water dish soap and a soft toothbrush,  I works so well and easy to do.  I always get compliments on how shiny my ring is.

My jeweler gave me the same advice as Honeydew for cleaning my antique ring.  I’ve had the ring a year and a half and it’s worked well- no damage or loose stones or anything (and my ring is pretty ornate with lots of stones in the setting).

I have a friend who makes jewelry and she suggested to me to heat up a little bit of windex for about 10 seconds and then soak your ring in the windex for about a minute. Then rinse it off under warm water and scrub it gently with a soft bristle toothbrush. The ammonia in windex helps break up any oils from your hands that collects between the stones and settings in your ring without damaging your ring. I’ve done this many times and it always leaves my ring sparkling like brand new!

I have solution and a brush from my grand father who is a jeweler, but I’ve heard equally good things about windex and a tooth brush to get your rings all nice and shiny and to clear up the stone (mine gets cloudy when it’s dirty and it drives me crazy so I clean it once or twice a week.)

I take a mug of water and heat it up in the microwave for a good 4-5 minutes- then add some liquid dish soap and soak it for 15-30 minutes and then use an old toothbrush to give it a scrub, it works wonders on my ring and other jewlery.  It works 10 times better then the cleaner i bought from my jeweler.

I have been using the solution & brush that the jeweler gave me, but the steam cleaning is the only thing that really gets the lotion out of my ring! I took it in for the first time when we went shopping for our wedding bands, and it looked like a new ring!!! I know it is a pain, but it really got the job done.

My jeweler recommended the cleaner that comes in the red little jar (for platinum/diamonds… not sure if you’d use the red tub or the silver tub for gold jewelry). You can get it at Target & he said its one of the best… and SUPER cheap (like $3 or $4). I recently got my ring steamed at the jeweler, and they were impressed at how clean it was!

@ BeachBride: I use that same cleaner, the kind in the red jar, I clean mine in that solution like 2-3 times a week…my Fiance thinks its bad for the diamonds to clean it that often.

What do ya’ll think?

You shouldn’t use cleaners with ammonia with white gold rings.  It makes it yellow faster.  =(

I just use a baby toothbrush with warm water mixed with dish soap (like a lot of the other readers here!).  I hear that 1/4 cup no-ammonia Mr. Clean mixed with 3/4 cup warm water is good too.

Hmmmm…I probably should clean my ring again.  It’s been a while!
