Thanks for reminding me, I want to clean my ring.  I dont do it often enough, I think the last time I did was a few months ago.  I have the solution the jeweler gave us but Id also like to go in and have it professionally cleaned soon.

I clean mine before I do something important, like if me and FH go out.  Or I cleaned it before the shower and bachelorette party.  That kind of thing.  I just use a little warm soapy water and a baby toothbrush.  The toothbrush is really to get under the main diamond, not for the gold.

I clean mine when I’m going somewhere special or seeing someone fr the first time since getting engaged.  I always mean to clean it more and love how bright and sparkly it looks after…but I’m absentminded and am lucky I remember to even put it on (which is why I never take it off!!)

I’ve only cleaned mine properly once since I got it 6 months ago. It made SUCH a difference so I figure I’ll do it once a month just to keep it looking good. Probably should have done that from the start.

First time in sonic cleaner last week when I went to price my wedding band (engaged since May). It was clean, but just as sparkly as my at-home method. I clean it whenever I remember/it starts looking grimy. Been meaning to try windex method. So far have been using baking soda (I use baking soda to clean pretty much everything, it’s that awesome) and a soft brush. Baking soda is fine for my platinum/diamond ring, and is also fine on gold, but not on softer stones.

About once a week on average, maybe more if we’re going out and it isn’t looking it’s sparkly best

I’ve been scared to clean mine, so I haven’t. I just wash my hands with soap and water with the ring on, but I’ve read this can actually reduce the shine?

It’s from Tiffany’s and I live fairly close to one, so they said I can just bring it in for complimentary cleaning whenever I’m in the area. I haven’t done that yet either, but I will before the wedding so it’s shiny in any photos.

mikan – soap probably reduces the shine because it leaves a nice soapy film on the surface of the ring.

@JoJo Bananas – yeah, I figure. I’m afraid to take OFF the ring before I wash my hands though in fear of losing it down the sink! I should buy some jewelry cleaner. I’m afraid of scratching the actual ring if I use a soft toothbrush – the metal is platinum which I’m told (and have seen) scratches easily.
