1/2 vinegar and 1/2 hot water, let soak at home.  At work, I do a dulute acid mix and put it in the sonicator. 🙂 Both of these methods remove the hard water build up from our home water system and are safe on the precious metals and diamonds.

I clean mine with a soft toothbrush and warm water.  Sometimes I use baking soda (my ring is silver).

When I had my ring reset, my jeweler gave me a jar of ring cleaner and said to put my ring it it every night and rinse it in the morning.  There is a brush in the jar for those extra dirty days.  Following his recommendation, my ring always looks lovely.

I put a few drops of dish soap in a cup of hot water and let it sit until the water is cool, then I use a jewelry brush to clean it off.

I use Ms (I believe Mrs! now) Nachos tutorial that she posted a while bag.  Microwave a cup of water for two minutes, add a few drops of dishsoap and drop you ring in.  Let the water cool, and then scrub with a toothbrush and rinse with warm water- looks amazing and lasts a long time too!

I have an ultrasonic cleaner but sometimes I use an old electric toothbrush for a quick scrub.

I have this ultrasonic cleaner and HIGHLY recommend it:  http://www.jewelsmall.com/shheuljeclst1.html 

3 min in it, and done!  It’s a bit more expensive than regular ultrasonic cleaners, but it’s Pro style and wonderful.  I even bought the silver plate to clean my silver jewelry too, and everything always look so sparkly!

I use a glass of boiling hot water, add a drop of dishsoap and a splash of vinegar… sounds like a combination of everyone above.  My Grandma taught me that… the dishsoap breaks down the grime, and the vinegar makes it sparkle.  You put your ring in the cup and leave it until the water is cool, and then brush it with a jewellery brush or a soft bristle children’s toothbrush… works like a charm everytime!  My friends now request that I clean their rings when they come over hahahah

p.s. @treasure43- my jeweler told me specifically not to use windex, because it can losen the setting, especially with pave stones, and that the diamonds can fall out over time because of the ammonia and chemincals in the windex… I have a solitaire engagement ring, but my wedding band has numerous pave stones!
