How do I clean the deep underside of my ring?? My favorite is soaking it in gain cleaner (not laundry soap) and using a toothbrush maybe once a week. But I can not get deep under there and it drives me nuts. I cant take it to get cleaned since one of my side stones is semi-loose. the tip is clean but down from that is cloudy. Sorry, these were the best pics I could get!

A Dazzle Stik!! This link is to target, but they sell them on amazon, and a lot of other stores.
These are amazing!! and the brush will reach up there. (on a side note, if you have a loose stone, you really should get it fixed!)

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!

lahela017 : thanks! I’ll check into that!
I will definitely get a shorter firm little paint brush to get in there. why didn’t I think of this before?!
I know I need to get the stone tightened. My real wish it to make it into a solitaire and place the 14 smaller stones into a wedding band. Just not enough $$ right before the wedding for that tho.

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 am very happy with this at home jewelry cleaner:
It comes with a tiny soft brush to get into all of those nooks and crannies, and my ring looks wonderful after.

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.
