This is awesome! Can’t wait to try it on my parents’ machine. 
I know for a fact that my store doesn’t stem clean, they do it right in front of me, they use one of those machines that they just drop the rings into and it vibrates the dirt out.

Holy cow … I am so glad I found this thread! I just broke out my Shark which has a removable hand-held steamer with attachments, one of which produces a pressurized stream of steam, and gave my regular-wear rings a steaming and W-O-W!!! They are sparkling like new again! I will be sure to add jewelry cleaning to my weekly household mopping when I break the Shark out from now on. LOL

Although most jewelers I have been to already have a steam cleaner for rings, I think this is the perfect excuse for some ladies to get themselves an expresso machine lol

@megz06:  You are right … I would have way more fun with the espresso machine and probably get more energy to clean with my shark. LOL

Well, next time I’m steam mopping the floors I’ll give my ring a quick clean too! Thanks for the tips 🙂

 You can eve use a regular coffee maker!!  Saw this on The Talk the other day:

 

Just fill the coffee maker with clean water as you normally would, but in place of coffee, put dirty jewelry in the coffee filter instead. The steam from the hot water flowing through the filter will remove dirt, oil, grime and any build up. Give it a quick rinse and your jewelry will sparkle and shine! You may want to run a pass of water thru before your start you cleaning to make sure the coffeemaker is clean.

 

 

 

*Please keep in mind that this tip is not recommended for costume jewelry that may have stones held in with glue.

I also use a super soft toothbrush to get the underside of my jewelry.  Anytime I clean my ring I either use steam or I simply use dish soap and rinse it well afterwards – sparkles like it’s brand new.

I use a string and two paper clips. Tie each end of the string to a paper clip. Put the ring on the string and clip to a pot. The ring hangs over the pot as if it were on a clothesline. Boil water beneath – just make sure the ring isn’t IN the water. Sometimes I cover the pot to enclose the steam but it isn’t necessary.
