I clean it anytime I feel its getting too dirty or I’m heading out on the town somewhere. I usually soak it in a solution of 1/2 hot water and 1/2 Windex for about ten minutes. Usually I just let it soak when I’m in the shower. When I get out, I take a soft toothbrush and scrub it. After I rinse it, blot it, and use my blowdryer to help get rid of any water spots. Works great.

Since you asked, here is a pic of my ring. =)

@butterflyangelo:  I have tried a few things, have heard of using vodka but the easiest way I clean my ring about once a week is to squirt a dollop of dishwashing soap on it, rub gently, rinse under water, pat dry with a towel and it sparkles like crazy.

I bought a cheap ultrasonic cleaner a few years ago.

I just fill it up to the line with warm water, add a squirt of dishwashing liquid (removes the body oils) and let it run for 5-6 minutes. It gets all the grime out from between the prongs, under the stone, etc. If I’m feeling lazy, I’ll just try it off with a towel, but I have a polishing cloth that I’ll use, and my ring comes up amazing!

Considering my e-ring is nearly 6 years old and I wear it non-stop (sleep, shower, everything wearing it), it’s holding up well 🙂

I use a small toothbrush head that came with my ultrasonic electric toothbrush, with a little bit of dishsoap and warm water, it works wonderfully. If I want some extra extra sparkle, I’ll polish it with glasses cleaner or windex after.

My grandmother used coca cola, but that was years ago and the ingredients in coke may have changed. Anyway she would put it in a glass and pour coke into the glass then put a note on the glass to say don’t drink lol

Ok I just looked it up and certain sites are saying don’t use it on rings with stones so please disregard my post, although I must say it does a very good job on rings without stones

I just drop it off at the jeweler’s anytime I’m nearby and he cleans it for me on the spot, no charge.

take it to the jewler every few months, they do it for free and it looks AMAZING! they also check the stone to make sure its safe 🙂

you can use soap and water at home, not the same as taking it in though and youre not supposed to put harsh chemicals on it at all!

I usually just wash my hands with it on, or if it’s looking really dirty, I take a nail brush and gently scrub around the stones.

The jeweler who restored my rings (they were my grandmother’s) gave us a solution they recommend. I don’t wear my rings at the rockclimbing gym, so while I’m out climbing, I drop my rings into the solution to soak while I’m gone. It’s great – it gets out all the lotion and funk and grime. It has a little brush that helps get it out of the crevices.

Baking soda and warm water into a liquidy paste and rub it on your ring. BAM. New again instantly. Safe way to do it.

I asked my friend that’s a jewelry designer this recently and she said to just use warm water and dish detergent with a toothbrush.  So easy and works like a dream 🙂
