I’d just check into your local jewlery stores. They should be able to point you in the right direction 🙂

My plat ring is from bluenile as well. I called and they said they’ll clean and inspect it for free every 6 months, but you have to ship it in to them which kind of sucks. i’ll probably just take mine to the diamond cellar (jewelry store here that seem a bit more legit to me than say, zales).

@corgitatales, random side note question, why do you say Zales is less legit? I have been having some problems with them but I just thought it was me. Am I wrong for thinking that it was an isolated incident with that chain?

I would find a local jewelry store (not a chain!) and ask them to polish it.  I think it’s important to have something local so you can get them to inspect your ring every now and then to check for loose settings or damage…

And as for the time it takes, at the jeweler I go to, they can get it polished and cleaned in less than 10 minutes if they’re not too busy!

Penguingal- I have had problems with Zales. They were super rude to me when they overheard me mention moissanite. They also acted like they didn’t have time for me even though I was buying a sapphire ring from them. (I would have walked out, but the ring was such a good deal I couldn’t resist.)

I ordered my ring online as well, and it’s palladium (similiar to platinum.) I ended up taking it to a local family business. They buffed it in about 1 minute and it only cost me six dollars. If I ever move out of my city, I’ll find another small family business rather than a chain.

Your local jeweler is your best bet.  It’s a good idea to ask around and find a reputable one.  My local jeweler is amazing and reasonably priced too, and he doesn’t gouge you like many other shops do.  He doesn’t have sales but his everyday prices are as good as a sale price somewhere else.

If you don’t have a relationship with a local jeweler, they may charge you for the polishing, which is only fair.
