be careful with the baking soda….if your ring is platinum it wont hurt it but white gold or silver can have chemical reactions with the baking soda which causes spotting.

I have an ultrasonic and I love it.  It works really well, though takes more than one cycle, more like 15 mins per piece.  If your jewelry is high quality, it’s not an issue.  It’s just that with some cheaper settings, the stones could fall out due to the vibrations.  It also isn’t supposed to be used on pearls.  Other than that, I’ve used it on everything and highly recommend one!

I’ve always used just a little bit of detergent mixed with hot water.  I was told by a jeweler to clean the diamonds not from the top but from the back (so brushing the base) to avoid loosening the setting & then drying with blow dryer to avoid leaving tissue lints on the diamond.

I also always stop in jewlrey stores a lot and ask them to please put it in the cleaner. If they aren’t busy, they always gladly do it! Also. windex and hot water, then poilsh with a cloth rag.

I have an ultrasonic and a steamer that was purchased from the jeweler but before I got those I would soak it in warm water and the blue dawn dishwashing detergent. Then I would blow dry it.

Boiled water with some dish soap and give a good scrub wih a toothbrush! My jeweller told me to not use the cleaner in the jar too often.

I just use hot water and hand soap/dish soap. Avoid touching the actaul diamond. I’m The oils from your hand dull the shine and any lotion/cream will obviously do the same thing.

Amonia and water.

Let it sit a little and scrub away with a soft toothbrush. DONE

 

All your oils, lotions, soaps, etc love your diamond. This makes it perfect with any metal.

i put a tiny bit of liquid dishwashing soap in a small bowl of warm water, let it soak for a few, scrub it w/ a soft brush (like an old blush/powder brush), and then rinse. my cousin sells jewelry and this is what the jeweler she works with recommended.

@hanzabelle:  Five minutes will do the trick, and safe enough to use daily.
