I use a dip and clean jewelry cleaner of the same brand of the Diamond Dazzle Stick, Connoisseurs.  It’s the red tub that @littlegraykittens mentioned, and you can get at Walmart, Target or even Kays.  Super easy and they are sparkly for days afterwards 🙂

Maybe toothpaste is OK for platinum since it’s what my jeweler recommended. By The Way, try the vodka trick, just use cheap vodka, I SWEAR it works the best.

I microwave a cup of water with some dish soap in it for about 2 minutes, drop the ring in and let it soak for 5 or so then swish it around/brush it with a soft toothbrush and rinse with hot water. Sparkles like crazy after!

I just use dawn and a baby toothbrush. It does the trick!

@natbug21:

Yeah but i read somewhere that windex has a particular ingrediant that makes it really shine…..Ammonia?…….and most UK  prodcucts are going ‘safe’  now and theres a lot of stuff we can no longer buy,,,,,Grrrrr!

we can get  Window-lean……..same kind of stuff but without the ammonia.

@Aure:

do they vibrate ?   just wondering if the constant vibration over the years might loosen stones?

A little bit of liquid dish soap and water does the trick to get rid of oils and light dirt without scratching up the gold like toothpaste might.  I also have a jar of the Connoisseurs cleaner posted above (make sure you get the right kind) and a Diamond Dazzle stick for when I need a deeper cleaning than dish soap.

I use this product I bought at a wedding show, it’s called sunshine product, biodegrable polish remover. It has paste with a little brush that I can use or liquid that I can let my ring soak in it. It’s awesome!

@anne B: I’ve heard that ultrasonic cleaners are not good for pave stones.

@anne B: Yes, in a way. I know it’s completely safe to use on my diamond and platinum e-ring and that many jewelers use them. I’m not sure about pave stones, but I do get my solitaire checked and professionally cleaned every once in a while, too.
