I would take it to a local jewelry store – most of the time in my experience, they have been happy to do it for free, and they are the experts!  I have a feeling someone else here is going to know how to do it on your own though!

i use alcohol, it’s user friendly ๐Ÿ™‚ then use a lint free cloth to clean off the finger prints(think the cloth you use for your lcd/plasma tv) if you want it super sparkly, you can buy some jewelry cleaner(wal-mart, target, walgreens) and a baby tooth brush, scrub it then dry it also with a lint free cloth… but your best bet is to just swing by your jeweler, it’ll take about 5 min and be super perfect!

I would *NOT* use finger nail polish! That just sounds bad to me..maybe I’m wrong on that but I would try going to a jewlery store or possibly purchasing the cleaner like this or one from a jewlery store (from my experience they all work very very well and are all pretty similar). I use that one once a week or so and it keeps my ring looking very sparkly! and gets rid of residue from hair products and etc

no finger nail polish!!!  warm water with a little dish soap and a soft toothbrush (or baby toothbrush or brand new mascara wand) will seriously clean it!  congrats & good luck

I use windex and warm water or jewelry cleaner, but there is nothing better than getting it done at the jewelers.  They do a special steam and buff that’s better than anything I’ve ever done at home.  (Though my ultrasonic ring cleaner gets it close!)

Here’s what I use.  I use an old electric toothbrush to massage out the dirt and then I drop in the ultrasonic ring cleaner from Brookstone.  (Worth the money!) It looks so sparkly afterward.

Try soaking in windex or rubbing alcohol.

Just take it to your jeweler! I don’t want to see that you have dropped it in the sink and that it got lost. ๐Ÿ™ Sorry, that’s my 2 cents. I used to take mine off for showers because we didn’t have anything guarding the drain in the old house. I might be paranoid, but I love my ring and I can’t imagine losing it.
