I just use the jewelery cleaner my Fiance bought with my ring.

I like to put my ring in a tea cup with salt and boiling water on it. after about 5 mins i give under the stones a scrub to clean any build up. I find that makes it sparkle

At home I use “gentle” jewellery cleaner for all my fine jewellery (diamonds, precious & semi-precious stones).  Comes in a jar, you can buy it at a chain Jewellery Store.  Only thing that never gets cleaned this way is Pearls.  They should never go into any chemical baths… best way to clean them is to swish them about in water and ivory soap flakes.

I use the cleaner the jewelry store provided.

Hand sanitizer also works super well if you’re just looking to get more sparkle. I think the alcohol helps create the shine.

I soak it in windex and warm water for 5 min. Then I make a paste out of baking soda and water, and use a baby tooth brush to apply to the ring. Then rinse in running water.

Looks great every time. 🙂

I was told NOT to use the jewelry cleaner if you have rhodium plating because the chemicals will eat it. I was told to use dish soap and a very soft child’s toothbrush to clean it when it got dirty. That way it doesn’t erode finishes and scratch gemstones or diamonds.

@MissMaryMc:  I thought hand sanitizer and the alcohol was bad for a ring?? 

 

I use warm water and dish soap and a tooth brush.

I put my ring in a small coffee mug and add a couple of drops of dish soap then spray it with a few sprays of Windex.  I add about an inch of HOT water and let it sit until the water cools.  I don’t find that I need to do more than that (and my ring has a ton of nooks and crannies plus a lot of stones), but sometimes I brush around the setting with a soft toothbrush.

I use a very small amount of Mr. Clean, dish soap an hot water. I soak for 15 and then gently brush with a soft brush thing i have. This was suggested to me by my jewler…I have a moissanite and diamond ring.

I have never cleaned my ring at home… Embarassed 

My Fiance will look at it on my finger (about every 2 – 3 weeks) and tell me “Your ring is dirty.”  then he takes it and cleans it for me.   He uses the pink liquid cleaner that he got when he bought the ring.  And follows up with the polishing cloth from the jeweler. 

(I feel so spoiled admitting this!)
