@SuperDuperBrit:  If you have a warrenty on your e-ring that includes rhodium plating (if it is white gold) then you should get your e-ring dipped before the wedding so they both look brand new. I learned my lesson…I didnt do that and I wish I would have cause the e-ring looked ratty compared to the new band

I would try making a paste out of baking soda and water. Let it set on the ring and scrub with a toothbrush. That method makes mine just as, if not more, sparkly than when I take it to be cleaned.

It never looks as good because you shouldnt use regular soap to clean your rings EXSPECIALLY WHITe GOLD, because it wears down the rohdium plating on your ring. Windex is OK but not great. You should only ever use jewlery cleaner.

You also shouldnt wear your rings while doing dishes, swiming, showering ect. It is REALLY bad for them.

I work for a jewlery store and we consantly have people ask us what they can do and honestly it is al about the way you treat your jewlery.

It comes out extra clean when jewlery store clean it because we use a very concentrated jewlery cleaner in a vibratin gultra sonic cleaner and them we stream them. If you left them to be cleaned and cleacked by the jewler they probably re rohdiumed your ring which is why it looks so good.

You can come into any jewqlery store at ANY time no matter if you bought your ring there or not and have them cleaned and steam your ring or any other jewlery.

Dang that clean! and BEAUTIFUL, and SPARKLING! I use liquid dish soap and a soft toothbrush on mine. That is what the jewelers on pricescope recommended but I always think it is damaging my ring.

@Gavinsmamma:  <– I was going to mention this bit about the soap. I heard that normal hand soap and stuff like lotion leaves a thin film on your stone. Even if it’s not on the top, it gets under the stone and makes it look cloudy. o.o
