I don’t live near the jeweler where I got my ring, and I have been planning to get it redipped, but in the mean time think a cleaning would help a lot. (I want it to look nice for a party I have to attend this weekend)
Can you walk into any old jeweler and ask for a cleaning or will they look at me like I’m crazy? I can’t imagine it costs much, but wonder if this is something people actually do. Will they do anything other than dip it into the cleaning solution I have at home?
I’m sure one of you wise bees will know the answer!

Yes, you can go to any jeweler and ask for a cleaning! It’s usually free or very cheap!

I usually go to my jeweler every 6 months for a deep cleaning.., they also told me if you want to clean it between cleaning so it can have the sparkle is use a toothbrush and windex… It works so much better than any other cleaning stuff I have used in past on other jewelry I have.

DIY! I went to my jeweler to ask the same thing and the manager said that I get a free cleaning every 6mos. but in the mean time if you mix 1 part ammonia to 3 parts water, and use a baby toothbrush to gently clean it and you can do it yourself. I do this every week and my ring is blinding!

The jeweler my ring was purchased from (Jared) is affiliated with several others (Kay Jewelers, etc) so I can take my ring to any of them and have it cleaned as often as I want for no charge. They usually blast it with a strong burst of air as well. I purchased jewlery cleaner to use during the other times when I don’t want to go in.

Every time I pass a Zales or Kay’s I go in and they often offer to clean my ring, free of charge. I have never actually had to pay.

@MrsTVLover: I use dawn or whatever dish soap you buy and water with a soft toothbrush works great everytime.

I use baking soda and a wet toothbrush in between pro cleanings
