i have been told to use a little bit of mild soap and water.  Thats whats best and thats all the ring needs.  I will also take it in every 6 months to have the stone checked and to be cleaned and polished by our jewelr.  they recomend not doing anything more then that

What kind of brush do you use? Recently i used mild soap and water, and a small soft brush. it was an eyeliner brush that I got for free but have never used because it was too thick for that,but fits nicely in the litte holes on the inside of the ring so i softly brushed the stones. 

a few days later, a stone was loose so i started touching them to see if there were more (they are 5 princess cut on a band) and another popped out in my hand! since then i’ve been to scared to try it on my e-ring so i’m not washing it. 

I promise this was a soft silky tiny brush and brushed them very sofly… 🙁

am i not supposed to touch the stones at all?

My jeweler told me they use baking soda and water mixed into a paste and clean the rings with a soft bristle toothbrush

My jeweler recommended mild dish detergent and a very soft bristle toothbrush.  I use a toddler toothbrush and usually Joy or Dawn.  My ring sparkles like crazy afterwards.

My jeweler’s website suggests one part ammonia to four parts water and use a soft toothbrush, rinse with warm water, and dry with a lint free cloth.

I use boiling hot water, a bit of vinegar, and a few drips of dish soap.  I mix it up in a little tiny tupperware (the 2oz size) and let the jewelry soak for about 15 minutes.  It’s the only thing that gets my diamond stud earrings clean!

Ahh yes and then a toothbrush, of course.

Soak in Windex (add a tiny bit of water if you’d like) for a little while, take it out, brush with a small soft brush (like an eyeshadow brush), then rinse.
