I got my engagement ring from Blue Nile about 15 months ago and I’m getting married in 5 months. Their website says you can send the ring in for professional cleanning and inspection free of charge. Has anyone done this? How soon before the wedding would you send it in?

I’ve done it twice now, and am overdue to send it in again. I’d recommend you have it back in your hands by 2 weeks prior to your wedding date so that it stays shiney & sparkly, but also gives time in case Blue Nile runs slow.
My wedding date was 6/11/16, and looking at my e-mail receipts right now, I had mailed my e-ring out on 5/26 via USPS and they received it the same day. It was serviced and mailed out on 6/3 and I received it on 6/6. Once I got it back, I didn’t wear it until wedding day for the photographs 🙂
Hope this helps!

I suggest going to a local jeweler. My ring is from Blue Nile. I sent it off for inspection, cleaning, and to be resized which was all free however to mail it with insurance cost me almost $100. Mailing my ring off caused me so much anxiety! I go to a local jeweler, not chain store, and have it cleaned and inspected for free. It took 2 weeks to get my ring back when I mailed it to Blue Nile.
