I’ve been sparkle obsessed ever since one of my girlfriends pointed out that my ring was really dirty. I had never had a piece of real jewelry to take care of before my engagement ring, so I didn’t realize diamonds and gems need some TLC too. I did notice that my diamond wasn’t sparkling as much anymore but it didn’t bother me. Thank God for good friends, we all need those people to tell us the is spinach in our teeth, our tags are sticking out and that our jewelry is filthy. Moving on…..
I got my ring cleaned at the jewelers that week and picked up a at home cleaner and now I’m pretty good at keeping my ring eyeblindingly shinny. I’ve been hearing about the diamond dazzle stick and read the reviews and they are sort of mixed. Most of the reviews are good, with some bad ones peppered in, but I focus on the bad ones Most of the time.
My curiosity got the best of me yesterday. I got off work early so I took my ring to get cleaned and this jewelrers by my work. When I got into my car I decided “F” it I want a diamond dazzle stik. I went to rite-aid and picked one up. Since I just got my ring cleaned I wasn’t going to use it till next week, but then I just could not wait this morning.
WOW! It is beyond sparkly now. I was inspired to write this review on here. I can’t believe that it sparkles so much more even after i got it cleaned yesterday at a jewelrer. I can’t wait to see how it looks in my car.

Cool! Thanks for the review, do you know if you can use this diamond stick on micropave?

I can’t vote in your poll because all your options are positive but I dislike this product.
It coats your ring in some kind of petroleum-based buildup.
I don’t want buildup on my ring AND I try to avoid petroleum-based things as much as possible (for both health and ethical reasons), and plus I really think that something that purports to “clean” your ring but actually covers it in a plasticky film is false advertising.

Well I like it. Makes my stone sparkly and that’s all I’m bothered about really 🙂

The Dazzle Stik is actually a stick version of the bottled jewelery cleaners (The ones with the tiny brush and the dipping tray) mixed with a little alcohol.
There’s really nothing special in them that will make your diamond sparkle moreso than normal. Usually jewelers will wash them with a tiny bit of ammonia or rubbing alcohol to loosen up the oils that build up on it, but a bit of soap and a soft toothbrush will do the exact same thing.
Just passing on’ a bit of FYI.

I don’t want one because I prefer to just wash my ring with a toothbrush and dish soap. Much cheaper, and I don’t feel like I have chemicals on my fingers. I do, however, love their commercial.

You can get a small at-home ultrasonic to clean your jewelry. 🙂 You can also use a soft bristle toothbrush, some water, and a small amount of Dawn dish soap. Never use toothpaste and keep it away from abrasive chemicals such as bleach & chlorine.

I keep one for when we’re traveling since I clean my ring 2-3 days a week. Otherwise I’m meh over it. They work ok.

I agree with @Hyperventilate:, there is nothing a diamond dazzle stick could do that soap (or windex or alcohol) + a toothbrush couldn’t do.
waste of money.

@nerdybird: I agree with you. Dish soap and a soft brush is pretty much the same as the Dazzle Stik. I have one and am simply not impressed.
