I just go to the jeweler’s a lot haha.  There is one near my work, and they will clean your ring for free, even if you didn’t buy it there. I go once a week or so.

I just run mine in hot water, and it looks brand new. My jelewer said not to put any product on it and I honestly haven’t needed to try any product.

I figure the jelewer steam cleans his soo thats likely the best idea.

My husband brought home a sample of a new jewelry cleaner called KISS jewelry cleaner. It has no chemicals and it was SO good on my ring that I devoted the next day a day for my daughters and my jewelry.I recently had my 3.8 ct diamond/platinum watch serviced and cleaned,I took out the face and soaked half the watch band in this solution.It was like a party trick !The diamonds have never looked that good ,the watch looked new(it’s a Hamilton watch made in the 1930’s) There are no chemicals in it and the man who created it will be launching it at an expo in Sydney next weekend .I will ask my husband to ask him where and when as it is worth trying that’s for sure,I will post it as soon as I find out.

Honestly, just use a natural dish soap- like Seventh Generation and an old toothbrush.  Windex had harmful chemicals for YOU in it.  No need!

That’s so funny that this came up because at my work we have an industrial windex dispenser for multiple uses that you place a bottle underneath and press a button to fill. One day I wasn’t paying attention and the bottle overfilled and poured all down my hands. I freaked out and hurried to clean my ring off, only to find that it was SUPER sparkly looking. I have tried it a couple of times since then (when I left my diamond dazzle stick at home) and it really does work.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  No I woudn’t be comfortable using that. I would just use jewelry cleaner or mild soap and water with a brush.
