I’d be pretty hesitant to attempt cleaning it myself, especially something with as many nooks and crannies as yours sounds like it has.

Will the jeweler charge you for a cleaning? My ring includes lifetime cleaning at the store, so I just take it in there about once a month…

Soaking it in warm water and dish soap always works really well for my rings. My e-ring is a half-eternity and this even seems to get all of the side stones and spaces between them very clean.

I just use the Conossieurs jewelry cleaner in the red plastic jar. I use it a couple times a week – drop it in when I get in the shower, let it sit, use the little brush that came with it, rinse – good as new! Makes a big difference.

Safe way to clean it. Warm water, baking soda (completely safe!!). Mix it into a paste. Rub it onto your ring, run it under warm water. RESULTS, SOOOOO CLEAAAAN! ๐Ÿ˜€

@VAwife:  I also used a drop of Dawn dish soap with warm water and a baby fine toothbrush without any chemicals in the bristles.  Works like a charm every time

I go to Jared’s – they clean it FOR FREE! and it’s the best jeweler cleaner that I have seen…I’ve been to a few over the years with other jewelry – and I think their’s is the best

blue dawn with warm water. DO NOT use generic dish washing liquid. it will leave a nasty film over your ring

I agree with the dish soap. I put a drop in a small bowl with some hot water and let it soak a while. Always comes out nice and sparkly ๐Ÿ™‚

Jeweler told me to drop it in a cup with a little windex!  I let it sit for like ten minutes.  Works like a charm!

I found an amazing and quick way on Pinterest!

  • Line the bottom of a cup or bowl with foil (cup #1)
  • In a seperate cup, heat 1 cup of water (cup #2)
  • Add 1 tspn each of baking soda, salt, and blue dawn soap.
  • Mix all ingredients together in cup #2
  • Put your rings in foiled cup #1
  • Add content from cup #2 into cup #1
  • Wait 5-10 minutes
  • Clean ingredients off with cold water and a little towel. 
  • Be amazed at your results!!!!!!

Seriously, after doing this, my ring shines like a sparkler on the fourth of July!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I do this every 3 weeks!!!!



******WARNING: do not attempt on sterling silver, plated silver, plated gold or costume jewlery. The jewelery has to be real silver or gold (yellow or white) or else it will “peel” the shiny coating off. My friend tried this recipe on her Pandora bracelet and the results weren’t pretty ๐Ÿ™

Toothpaste + brush. Idk how safe it is but my mom uses it all the time with no problem. Natures Gate tooth paste is what we use.

Step 1–Go to the jeweler

Step 2–hand them the ring

Step 3–tell them to clean it

LOL. I’m just messing around because that’s what my SIL does. She takes that dang thing up there (and it’s a 20 drive) to have it clean every 2 or three weeks. I’m like, serious? There’s got to be something more convenient. And what if you become unable to remove it from your hand?

I’ve used vinegar + water, vinegar + baking soda, toothpaste, & windex all in conjunction with a soft bristled toothbrush…all with good results! (I used them on separate occasions, not all at once!)
