@runsyellowlites: Toothpaste is filled with diatom frustules – the glass outer shells of a certain type of phytoplankton. That is why it can scratch gold. It’s what makes toothpaste a little “gritty” if you don’t use much water when you brush.

I use liquid laundry detergent and warm water. Works like a charm! This is what my jeweler told me that they use!

Usually I’ll do it after I do dishes and use palmolive and a soft brush and its great. I’m sitting at my desk now and just sprayed windex all over it and rinsed in warm water..WOW!

@Take The Reins: I am a jeweler. Anyway I just don’t think the ring wil ever be as clean as they get it. But buy some spray cleaner from them, leave it sit for 20 seconds brush it with a toothbrush then rinse it off. Then blow dry it dry to remove water marks. That should make it look great!

I know some people will say that sonic cleaners can loosen pave diamonds,  and if i had a ring like that i wouldnt consider it, but do you think a ring WITHOUT  pave diamonds would be safe?   i am seriously considering buying one of these cleaners…for ALL my jewellery, but especially for my E ring…

@littlegraykitten: After reading this thread and then reading the thread you linked to, I caved and bought this product off Amazon (for like $8; it’s not free but it was hardly a bank breaker). I got it on Saturday and it is FABULOUS! 

I usually use the little red jar by the same manufacturer but the little brush does wonders to get in the little ins and outs. My ring is so spah-kly now; my Future Mother-In-Law even asked at dinner last night whether I had just taken it in to be cleaned because it was extra super sparkly.  Thank you!

For a quick touch-up I just use rubbing alcohol. I am not sure it’s good for the ring itself (white gold) so I typically just rub the diamonds. Works in a second, works like a charm! I do this daily with my diamond studs, too, because I wear them 24/7.

My jeweler told me to use a tiny bit of dish soap in water and a child’s soft toothbrush. She said this is gentle enough to use every day if I chose to. I have a pave band and four-pring cushion. It seems to work just fine.

@Wannabe-diy-bride: That’s also a great trick, the rubbing alcohol esp like the littler towelette packets dries without water spots. Or you can blow dry it like I do 🙂

For cleaning diamond earrings or diamond ring at home, you should buy jewellery cleaning kit. It is specifically designed to clean jewellery at home. Always use brush with soft bristles and don’t use wire. It is to be cleaned on flat surface so that it will not fell into sink.
