So I have kind of perfected this whole process fo bear with me if it sounds dumb haha The whole process takes like 20 mins total, but only about 5-7 mins of actual labor if you are going to go all out — somtimes I have to speed the process up.

1. I have a small bowl and tooth brush just for cleaning. I fill the bowl up with clean drinking water that I then microwave for about 30 seconds or so. I like my water to be really hot. Adjust the time based on how much water is in the bowl. 

 

2. I then add dawn dish soap (Dawn works best for my ring for whatever reason) and a hint of windex if you want and mix

 

3. drop your ring in and leave for about 5-10 mins

 

4. Scrub your ring like crazy. I spend at least 2 mins on the underside of my ring. I would reccomend getting a kids toothbrush as they are softer and less likley to scratch the ring, but I will frequently used a normal toothbrush (always make sure the tooth brush isnt used for teeth cleaning as toothpase can scratch). Sometimes I dip the ring back into the water to wash off the grime and then keep scrubbing. 

 

5. Once the ring is clean, put it on your finger and shake like crazy. It is important to remove as much water as possible at this stage. 

 

6. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: blow dry your ring with the air set to cool. I dont know why but this keeps my ring cleaner for longer. 

 

 

Letting the grim build up on your ring is what makes it look dirty. Frankly, people don’t beleive my ring is a morngiate because it looks sparkley and expensive while others they have seen look cloudy and cheap. While I do have a nice stone, most of this is becasue I take really good care of it. It really isn’t hard haha 

 

You have a gorgeous ring!! ENJOY IT!!!

aimerxoxo :  I don’t baby it per se, I just make sure to clean it thoroughly once a week. I usually use set it in my jewelry cleaner overnight (the little red jar they sell at walmart/etc.) and then the following morning, I use a really soft toothbrush to get the under side of the stone. I’m overly careful with most of my jewelry after working in a jewelry store, so I don’t sleep/cook/clean/shower/etc. with my jewelry on.

Your ring is gorgeous! I love the vintage setting. Beautiful. Can’t wait for the jeweler to finish my morganite e-ring.

SmilingMrsD :  Thanks for sharing your cleaning routine. I’ve read that blow drying is essential after washing it. I’m encouraged hearing you only clean it every other week. So many ladies clean it every 1-2 days to keep it shiny. Definitely going to use your suggestion.

j_bishae :  yeah. soft bristle every now and then works wonders. brushing the underside helps LOADS. i tend to place it on a dry cotton hand towel to soak the water. i forgot where i read that but it works too 🙂
