    I get my ring cleaned almost everytime I go to the mall. It doesn’t do any damage at all.

    I clean my rings at home with ammonia free jewelry cleaner about every 2 weeks.  I always thought I was getting it very clean but I recently had them cleaned at my jeweler and I was amazed and how much black stuff was left behind on the cloth.   I guess the prefessional stuff and the steamer really do more than what I have at home.  I plan on having it done professionally a little more often now.  Maybe before special events and holidays…

    Our ring warranty involves us getting it cleaned and inspected every three-four months, so that’s minimum. Sometimes I’ll do it randomly if I’m at the mall, too.

    I havent had it prof cleaned since I got it back in May and don’t really think about getting it done.  I keep a little toothbrush in the shower and give it and my pendant and other rings that I wear on a daily basis a little scrub in the shower with a little soap and water.

    I’ve only gotten my ring cleaned once and that was when we to try on bands. I really need to be nicer to my ring and get it cleaned a bit more often!

    Ive had my ring for about 9 months and its been cleaned easily 8 times. I also clean it at home and dont wear it when im doing messy things.

    I clean it at home with the cleaner they gave me and sometimes  with HOT HOT water & a few drops of dawn and shake it around it comes out perfect!

    Any time I wander into a jewelry store at the mall they offer to do it for free. Thanks, I’ll take it! Not sure what they do exactly but it takes only a few minutes.

    I got it cleaned right before our wedding (along with getting it re-plated – white gold)

    However I did buy a  baby toothbrush and every week or so I heat water in a small container with dish soap (like Dawn) in the microwave and soak my engagement ring in it and then brush it with the toothbrush – you’d be amazed at the difference.

    The warranty on my ring requires me to bring it in every six months to have it cleaned and checked.

    hmmmm….for some reason I have never thought about going to the mall to get mine cleaned. Is it “frowned” upon if you get it cleaned at a jewelry store other than the one you bought it from? My ring is from an independent jeweler that is kind of far from where I live. Would I get bad looks if I go in and ask to get it cleaned at another store? lol..

    I have to get mine inspected every six months for my warranty and that’s usually the only time I get it cleaned.  Every now and then I’ll clean it at home.

    @MlleBrielle: I don’t think it’s frowned upon. They’ve always offered…. I’ve never asked. And like I said it takes no time at all. If it’s a slow night, I bet they will offer the same to you.

    @Edina – Thank you for the answer! I think next time I am at the mall I am going to stop by the jeweler to get a nice clean.
