@winerygirl: I just brush my ring with a toothbrush or soak is overnight in a solution of a few sprays of windex and warm water and then brush with a toothbrush in the morning.

They stay pretty sparkly that way.

First of all, most jewelers will clean your rings for free.  Every time I go into mine, regardless of whether I’m buying something or just browsing, they clean my engagement ring.

I use an ultrasonic machine that my mother gave me for Christmas most of the time, but I use a little jewelry cleaner now and then, too.  I’ve heard windex is just fine as well.

 

Check out this post I found on a blog: http://theblingblog.typepad.com/the_bling_blog/2006/02/how_to_clean_a_.html

Windex works wonders!

I picked up jewelry cleaner at Bed Bath and Beyond in this little red tub… dip for 20-30 seconds, scrub with the little provided brush, and voila! My ring always turns out sparkly.

Love my sonic cleaner! But that won’t work on emeralds or other softer stones. Soaking it overnight in Ivory dish soap then scrubbing with a toothbrush works well too.

White toothpaste and a soft bristled toothbrush! Or soak in Dawn and hot water. Or vinegar. Rinse in very hot water after you soak in vinegar.

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: You can heat windex in the microwave? Isn’t that dangerous? According to that blog, you heat it in the microwave first and I thought that was a giant explosive no-no!

Most jewelers also sell a jewelry cleaning solution that you can dip the ring in and it comes with a soft brush. I have that at home and every once in a while I dip my ring in there for  few minutes and then occasionally use the brush that was provided over the diamonds in my ring and then rinse it and the ring sparkles like new. most jewelry stores will also steam it for you if you ask them to

I use jewelry solution every other week or so…. but every night I brush it with my “ring” toothbrush after I brush my teeth. Lol, is it bad that my ring has it’s own pink glitter toothbrush?!

Anyway, here’s my sparkly ring (also with tiny diamonds and grooves):

Not 100% what you meant by embedded diamonds, but I’ve been told if you have pave diamonds to not use the ultrasonic cleaners as it may shake the diamonds loose.

If you have pave set diamonds be very careful about using an ultrasonic cleaner. The ultrasonic waves can shake the stones loose.

I was advised against using it for my ring to avoid loosening the stones.

I use an at home sonic cleaner. They cost about $30 and work for anything except micropave.
