I usually clean mine with dish soap and a bit of ammonia and a soft toothbrush and it works wonders!!! My Fi’s cousin is a jeweler and suggests not using ultrasonic cleaning too much since it can loosen small stones if used repeatedly.
I usually clean mine every month since a don’t wear it much thruougout the  week. I work in a hospital and have to wash my hands all the time.

I soak mine in hot hot water with a bit of dish soap for 15 minutes, then use a baby toothbrush to scrub and then rinse. Works like a charm!

Kay Jewelers and Jarod sell this cleaner in a white bottle that comes with a toothbrush like thing on it. My Fiance bought it for me when we bought my wedding band and it is amazing! Way better than the other cleaners I have tried! It looks as good as steaming!

A very high-end custom jeweller told me hot water, a little dish soap, and a soft toothbrush is all you need. There is no need to get special cleaners.

my aunt is a jeweler and my smart fiance got my engagement ring and band from her.  for my birthday she got me a jewelry cleaning machine she herself uses at her store.  its a STEAM CLEANING machine that looks so much like my espresso machine!  the sonic-care type shake your ring which loosens the diamonds and since i have a diamond pave setting (little diamonds all the way around) on both bands she said it was the safest way to clean it.  all of my family and friends want me to pull it out every time they come over, it literally cleans and sparkles all jewelry.  it is around $100 though but i think definitely worth it.  i teach preschool so playdoh and sunscreen make my ring get very dull and dirty fast!

MsGreenApple – where can we find one of those steam cleaners?  Will you share?  Is there a particular brand you/your aunt recommends?
