I use the sonic cleaner that I bought from my jeweler. Just remember to read the instructions carefully.

If you have pave, as I do, you should keep it out of the Sonic. I sometimes soak my ring overnight in vodka, but once a week I gently scrub it with a child’s toothbrush and some tooth paste. Rinse with scalding water and air dry on a paper towel.

 

HTH!

@Miss. Snowball: I love my sonic cleaner!

 

@Take The Reins: I just cleaned mine too! My family teases me for cleaning it so much hehehe besides my sonic cleaner I find that the scalding water like NYCchickie said works well.

Oh oh! I think it was Mrs.Estep who recommended the Diamond Dazzle Stik (do a quick search, there’s a post dedicated to it). It’s by Connoisseurs, the same people who make the red tub cleaner and it works wonders. It foams,so it really gets into small spaces. Highly recommend it! Side note, I have heard on these boards and from my jeweler that you should never use toothpaste on your ring because it’s fairly abrasive and can scratch the setting, especially softer metals like gold.

Use a little bit of windex and shine that baby up 🙂 That’s actually how a lot of jewelers clean it!

Either windex or an ammonia based cleaner mixed with warm water. I work with jewllery and cleaning rings with tootpaste is not a good long term cleaning option. It will scratch the gold.

@GeekChic:

hmm.. Didn’t know that. I was always told that was fine by someone who worked in jewelry/business owner for years. Would the scratching possibly be more from the bristles of the brush than the toothpaste?.. Just wondering.

I was told that there are granules in the toothpaste that are slightly abrasive over time and can scratch your gold. But the bristles are a huge factor, too. If you use a toothbrush at all it should be a soft bristled or baby brush, anything else is too rough and also makes scratches

My jeweler said to use warm water and a few drops of Dawn dish soap (not another brand, as Dawn has the best and safest cleaning components). Don’t use a brush, just let it soak and then rinse it with water under the faucet.

I put my ring in a little tin lid, with warm water and soft soap in it. I let it sit for 5 minutes and then I take an old, soft make-up brush and get into the cracks and hard to get areas. Then I towel dry, and voila! Perfectly shiny ring.
