How regularly do you guys clean your engagement rings? I have a diamond halo set in platinum – I’m so worried about loosening the stones but I’m terrible for constantly touching the ring and getting greasy marks on it.
My jeweller suggested that we should have it professionally cleaned every two years but to gently wash in water and mild soap in between, I just don’t know how often!

I do a light scrub with a soft toothbrush and some Dawn dish soap every morning and right before we go out somewhere.

I wash mine once a month.

In the almost four years I have had mine I have had it professionally cleaned twice. Once when I got a small repair and once when I bought my husbands wedding band. I use to use the diamond dazzle stick weekly, but now I do it more like monthly. That gets it shining pretty nicely!

I soak mine in hot soapy water every morning while I’m getting ready, so it’s nice and sparkling when I leave the house. I use a very soft sable makeup brush maybe 2-3 times a week to work the soap under the basket and on the pavillion of the stone. Then, I rinse in hot water, shake off the excess water, and then dip in isopropyl alcohol (no water spots when it evaporates).
Occasionally I’ll give it a quick touchup if needed midday or if I have evening plans. The little microfiber cloths for cleaning eyeglasses work well to remove smudgy fingerprints, or I’ll use an alcohol wipe.

I have a diamond halo set in platinum as well and I clean mine once a week.
I soak it in a mixture of hot water, dish detergent and Windex and scrub with a tuft-end toothbrush…it’s great for getting under the halo.
And for on-the-go, I always carry alcohol wipes in my purse. I get it professionally cleaned once a year along with having the prongs checked and tightened.

Every day or two, with shampoo and a soft brush. Love to seeing the sparkle after it’s washed.

I clean it in dish soap and water and use a baby toothbrush on it about once a week usually and professionally once a year

I keep a little soft baby toothbrush in the shower, and give my rings a quick little scrub daily as part of my routine. It takes only a couple seconds but keeps my rings sparkly!

1 to 3x a week at home and I take them for inspection every 2 to 3 months or so just to get them professionally cleaned and make sure everything is tight since I wear my jewellery to do most activities.
When I clean at home I either use my diamond pen and water, then dry, or I give it a little careful scrub with an old worn out SOFT toothbrush and soap and then rinse. No medium or hard ones ever.
Sometimes I’ll use rubbing alcohol spray after and then dry with a microfiber cloth 🙂 but mine are platinum so that spray may be an issue for white gold. I’m not sure. I don’t wear gold.

I soak mine in windex and scrub it with an electronic toothbrush (flosser head) every few days. The flosser head allows me to get under the basket and between/under the prongs and backet arms.
About once a month I soak it in an ammonia bath for a deep clean, then follow with the windex + toothbrush scrub.

My fiance had mine cleaned before he proposed (it was a ring in the family), and I haven’t cleaned it since. It’s been 7 months. I do wash my hands with it on, if that counts…? Haha.

I clean mine every couple of days. I get the prongs checked and it professionally cleaned every 6 months.

About once a week, give or take a few days. I do a Windex soak while I shower once a week then give it a scrub with a baby toothbrush. It stays pretty sparkly all week, but I do take it off to shower and for messy chores/cooking.
I’ve yet to have it professionally cleaned, but its coming up on one year and so will be doing that soon.
