Usually they work behind a glass window. I’ve been to a few places and just know that any time you go ring shoping, they will offer to clean it. I just let them. Sometimes I can see them, sometimes I just hear them, sometimes I’m just busy looking in the cases.

It takes much too long for them to do anything to your ring, though, if it’s just a cleaning. That should only take like 5 minutes to cneck adm clean!

I can usually hear the jewelry cleaner whirring from wherever I’m standing when I take my ring in for a cleaning.  It helps me feel a bit more secure that my diamond has a serial number lasered micro-teeny-tiny (technical term) 🙂 onto it…so I’d know if someone tried to pull a switcharoo!

Well, I take in to the place Fiance got it at and they clean it for me for free. They take in to a little room and a few minutes later they come back out with it nice and shiny.

they clean mine out in the open so i can totally see what they’re doing. word of the wise though, if you have a pave ring make sure they don’t put it in the spinner/shaker thingy- not sure what the name of the machine is. i’ve had 3 stones fall out already! nightmare!

I take mine in about once a month and they clean it right in front of me in a solution with a small brush. You can get jewelry cleaning solution and clean it yourself and do just as well. If you want a more thurough clean then you will need to have it sent in.

If you want to clean it yourself…windex and a toothbrush work miracles 🙂

While we offer both ultrasonic and steam cleaners; it is also possible and reasonable to manually clean your jewels. Household cleaning can be accomplished in few simple steps:

  1. Put a drain strainer (like one’s used for contact lenses) over the drain in your sink
  2. Use Neutrogena facial soap (leaves very little residue) and brush lightly with old toothbrush
  3. rinse with warm water
  4. place ring on paper towel
  5. blow dry with hair dryer; hottest setting (prevents water marks)

I clean my own ring once in a while with just regular old mr.clean and water and a tooth brush, then rinse it under very hot water! It sparkles like new afterwards!!

I recently came across this stuff:  sparklebright.net  They have both the cleaning solution and the polisher and honestly, my e-ring hasn’t looked so shiny since the day I got it!!  Even after a few “professional” cleanings.  Only 20 bucks and it lasts a really long time, years probably!
