Do you have an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner? Amazon has a wide array of them ranging from $20-$100. I’ve heard that they can loosen stones if used too often so the recommended usage is once or twice a month (especially for pave bands). That may help loosen the grungy stuff in the hard to reach places.

I use my sonicare toothbrush and I find it works wonders, lol.

Maybe invest in an ultrasonic cleaner? It’s supposed to permeate the harder to access areas. I just use Dawn and warm water in mine.

I don’t think I’d risk ultrasonic-ing your e-ring since it has those small sidestones. I’d probably just let it soak for awhile in a jewelry cleaning solution or your own solution of hot water/dish soap (I think some have recommended Windex too, but I’d do some Googling to make sure whatever it is, it’s safe). Then I’d try using the dazzle stik brush or a small toothbrush to clean it again, hoping that some of the dirt loosened up.

I have small stones on my ring and clean mine in my ultra sonic every couple of days, I have had zero issues.

The store where I bought my ring said they used Mr. Clean in theirs and I tried it and it works awesome. I also give it a rinse once it’s done, my ring has never been sparklier.

I will say I feel fine using the cleaner with my ring because I have a warranty so if any stones fell out they would be covered.

Yipeebee: I just wouldn’t want you to use it and a stone fell out I would feel bad 🙁 My ring has had no issues but that doesn’t mean every ring is going to be the same. My little stones are also claw set so I think that makes them a bit sturdier.

I’ve used hydrogen peroxide to loosen dirt & gunk from the tiny holes on the underside of my ring (it’s a channel-set). I just let it soak for an hour or so and when I come back, I can see all the little floaties in the dish. Kinda gross. But worth a shot!

Yipeebee:  I use windex to clean mine and a little brush that is meant for cleaning inbetween braces! It works great ! 🙂
