No worries – I do it all the time! My ring is from an online store and I have five or six times gone in and asked any random store to check and clean it, and they have absolutely no problem doing so.

Absolutely! Any jewelry store, especially the private, non-chain ones, should be happy to check your prongs and clean your ring. If you go to the mall jewelry stores (Kay, etc), it can help to say that you bought your jewelry there and have the appropriate warranty, but just don’t have the paperwork with you (little white lie, I think, especially if you browse… and/or buy…).

Especially if they are checking the ring, which is maybe a little more legit than *just* cleaning, they should be happy to do it!

I live in NYC and they have places where you can get your ring steam cleaned and polished while you wait.  It is AMAZING the difference!!  My mom had only done the routine cleaning before and she got all her rings cleaned here and couldn’t believe how great they looked. I think there are many ways to clean a ring – and some stores might not do the whole steam and polish bit…..

I had mine made by a locally-owned jeweler/diamond dealer here in town, but every time I pop into Ben Bridge they want to clean my ring – partly because they think it’s soooo pretty, and of course partly because you browse in the store while they’re doing it, and they hope you’ll buy something from them too.  And of course, we have.  I’ve never been charged for cleaning and inspection, only for replating, and I do take my ring back to the jeweler who made it for that.  But if we ever moved, I would just find a new place to do it.
