I have an aquamarine stone so I have to be careful what I use.

So far the best thing that has worked is.  Warm water, dawn dish soap and a little windex.  I let it soak for about 5 mins and use a soft toothbrush to scrub it clean.

Rinse and wipe with a mircofiber cloth.

I use a little toothpaste and an old toothbrush to keep mine clean. I forgot who told me that, but it sure does make it sparkle πŸ™‚

I use a toothbrush with toothpaste on it (my mom swears by it, lol), which does a great job removing anything a toothbrush can reach. Every once in awhile, I’ll leave it sitting in a cup with dish soap and warm water to soak. That seems to clear out anything that gets gunked up inside. Be really careful, though, my mom tried to toss my ring out the first time! I always set it on top of a paper towel that I write “My Ring” on with a big blue Sharpie.

My husband’s coworkers were talking about the ultrasonic jewelry cleaners and raving about them, so he bought me one. This hands down works the best then any other method of cleaning – I LOVE it!

I use warm water and soap between cleanings at the jewelry store every 6 months!

My future father-in-law is a jeweler and advised me the best and cheapest way to clean my ring is using ammonia.  I let it soak for a couple minutes and usually scrub with a small brush (you could also use a tooth brush) to get in all the small spaces.  πŸ™‚

@MeaganLeigh2011:  I def do this.  A friend of mine owns a jewelry shop where she steams also but she said toothpaste or dawn dish soap works best

@futuremrshubbard:  If the ring is white gold the ammonia will strip the Irodium right off.  Be careful with that.

Seriously, warm water and soap with a very soft toothbrush is literally the BEST thing if not taken into a professional. Some cleaning kits slowly erode over time so be careful.
