The pictures aren’t loading on my computer, but what about a small thin paint brush? You can buy them inexpensively at different lengths and stiffnesses, and that might help get into some of the cracks and crevices.

Try a small paint brush. If a stone is loose you need to get that fixed though.

Mix warm water, some Dawn, and, if NOT white gold but platinum, some Windex or ammonia. 

Let soak for a while. Use a baby toothbrush or a small paintbrush or makeup brush to get in under the gallery and scrub. Let it soak a while longer. Rinse and dry.

You can also use Isopropyl Alchohol (at least 90%). Let it sit for a few minutes, brush as before, soak a few more minutes, and rinse and dry.

I have a three stone with that exact same type of setting type and have no problems getting in there with a baby toothbrush or small paint/makeup brush.

You should get a loose stone tightened, before it falls out!

A lipstick brush works well too!

I totally understand the penny pinching before the wedding…I think I had $150 in my checking account when I walked down the aisle after making all the final payments…

But, honestly, it is far cheaper to fix that stone now than replacing it later when it really falls out. My E ring had a loose stone when he proposed. The jewelry store he purchased it from fixed it for free about a month later (purchased at a store out of town). Even if you can’t do the same, it shouldn’t really cost much now to fix.

I use denture tablets it really gets the ring clean  an gets all the goo out like magic 🙂 I then use a soft toddler tooth brush underneath. Try it works awesome better then when I take my ring in for inspections. I would get that loose stone fixed first  though before taking a brush to it.

There are often little ultrasonic machines amongst those pre-wrapped christmas novelty gifts that you see on a red cardboard stand in places like walmart and Bentley this time of year.
