im guessing you have tried soapy water with a soft brush ??? Why not take it in to your local jeweller, they usually do it while you wait, good luck

Take it to a jeweller most jewellers in Toronto will clean it for free.

I always think I’ve gotten my ring clean, until I take it to the jewellers and they clean it! For that reason, looking at getting a sonic cleaner. But for now, I have a solution the jeweler gave me that works pretty well. Soak it in there while I’m in the shower sometimes and use the little brush when I pull it out

My jewler told me to use dawn dish soap and a soft toothbrush. What are you using?

I have a home cleaning kit I purchased from a jeweller. If something like that isn’t working for you, then have the jeweller clean it for you 🙂

nurseybee55 :   I’d suggest a sable brush from an art supply store.  The cheaper nylon ones don’t last well at all.  I have been using a sable brush for five years and it looks brand new and cleans the back of my stone beautifully.

nurseybee55 :  I think so, the bristles are very fine.  They come in different lengths, I’d go with short bristles at first.

I have a home ultrasonic machine that my ring goes into once a day. It’s always super clean! I would recommend one.

My jewelry cleaning kit from Avon came with a really small brush.

I also have a sapphire with a lot of little crevices, and to clean to clean I use a Q-tip with one normal end and one precision tip (the type you might use with nail polish remover to clean up smudges).  I use the normal end to blot it and the precision tip to get in the corners and holes.
