Hey Ladies,
Anyone know the best way to home clean a platinum angagement ring? I've only had it two months but I can already see where the gunk is gonna form between the prongs from wahing my hand and lotion, etc.
Any suggestions?

My jewler recommend putting Palmolive (or other dish gel) in a mug with water in the microwave for 40 seconds - then AFTER heating, place e-ring in mug for about 10 minutes and presto, nice and sparkly!

I heard to soak the ring in amonia cut with water for 10 minutes, use a SOFT toothbrush to gently clean the "open " spaces, rinse with hot water and then windex. I'm goning to try the amonia mix this week.

Right now I use toothpaste, then Rubbing Alcohol then windex once a week. It really works good and my ring stays sparkly.

Either way, make sure you rinse it good with hot water.

I use spic and span. The jeweler I talked to said to heat it on the stove, turn it off and let your ring sit for 5 mins. and then use a toothbrush to clean it. I never heat it. I put the spic and span in a container and use it that way. Comes out GREAT! I do it once a week also and it is very sparkly. I used to use a jewelry cleaner and find this works better.

My jeweler told me the following works just as well as steaming:

1 part ammonia, 3 parts warm water, 3 parts dish soap. Soak and use a soft brush to get any junk out. Rinse with water.

Works like a charm!

Or a jewelry cleaner.
