Nice! I can definitely see in the before pic, that the diamond is slightly cloudier/duller. The after pic is definitely much clearer and has fire in the diamond.

Absolutely amazing. The ingredients do scare me a little LOL but I totally trust you. I just would die if anything happened to my baby and my husband might spank me LOL JK. I cant believe how incredible your ring looks! Im drooling.

That is an excellent result! The sparkles really stand out in the first after pic. I’m going to try that apple cider vinegar soak. I’m still wary of the acetone and boiling water steps!

After wearing my ring for a few years, I noticed that my willingness to take a lot of steps or solutions to clean my ring has taken a deep dive. So I just decided to get an ultrasonic cleaner so I can simply drop my ring in there while I’m in the shower and get it clean with no effort. I’ve been considering using the blow dryer to dry it afterwards- it does look so beautiful without any water spots.

I use a counterintuitive method.

I dip my diamond ring in baby oil. The old, hardened oil (from many weeks’ worth of fingerprints, hand cream, etc.) dissolves in the baby oil. The baby oil remains on the ring but because it is new and unhardened it is more readily removed by detergent.

I then dip the ring in washing up liquid (know aa dish soap in the US).

Then I rinse the ring in cold water and put it back on my finger.

(Please note that I use a minimum amount of oil and I place the plug in the sink. I use this technique on diamonds and sapphires but NEVER on emeralds or pearls or opals.)

Supersleuth :  I tried your recipe after reading one of your posts months ago and it worked out great! I have a diamond solitaire. Where did you get the baby oil idea?

janedoe27 :  SS probably has some science knowledge; lipids are not water soluble. But it’s the same principle at work in a facial….oil on a face to dissolve the excess facial oil, wipe off, continue with the rest of the steps.
