I agree this maybe looks like an ad. I also bought the Juli recently and will give an honest review when I receive
She is the one who has the friend whose 3 carat stone popped off rh setting and is lost.
I went ahead and ordered the juli and my comments are legit as you “know me”... a PS member since 2003!
Prior to ordering, I had some questions and the creator/entrepreneur, Hannah Peck, promptly and thoroughly replied in detail. She also is readily available via text. She was extremely accommodating as I had special requests with my delivery.
juli arrives very well secured for shipping. Immediately upon opening it, you know you’ve received an upscale product, as the packaging is quite luxurious. It is honestly like receiving a special gift for yourself, not merely an appliance. The presentation is amazing and incredibly well thought out and executed. It is even accompanied with a personal note from Hannah herself.
The product(s) are of very high quality. They take up minimal space, are attractive enough to keep out, and will travel well. They feel great to the touch. It is quite apparent an immense amount of product development went into its creation.
As for how well it works, I am very impressed. The brush has different components designed to clean specifically the type of setting(s) you have, even the different characteristics of a setting with multiple design/setting elements. It took me a couple times to get the hang of it as I was making it more difficult than it is! Once I “got it”, my ring was sparkling clean literally in less than a minute. It really does a great job at cleaning the pavilion between the prongs where dirt/oils love to gather which really plays a role in how the diamond looks, perfect for my 6-prong solitaire.
As for price, it is comparable to a well-known maker of various home ultrasonic and steam cleaners, but I think it does a better job without all the hassle and mess of changing out the solution as well as the counter/storage space they require. I was able to get a special price offering which made it an even better option comparatively speaking. And I’ve found that every home unit I have owned has been very cheaply made. The juli is absolutely not “cheap”and feels amazing to hold. Also, whisper quiet, not annoyingly noisy like the machines I’ve had.
I was curious if it would leave a residue as so many of the cleaning solutions I’ve used do, but this does not leave a residue. It feels just as clean as when I would soak my ring in hot water and dish soap overnight and then brush the next morning... without actually having to do all that.
But if you are not happy, there is a return option so no risk to give it a chance if you have interest.
So this is my experience thus far, and you know I am a very long-time PS regular going all the way back to
the early days of PS, so regardless of your impression as to whether that other post was legit or not, you know mine is genuine.
Think my sonicare toothbrush would do the trick ?
Just got my Juli and immediately took her for a quick test drive. I actually hadn’t cleaned my diamond in 3 weeks in anticipation of receiving this, even though I usually clean her every other day. This is definitely quicker than my usual ultrasonic / steamer combo, and great for traveling (I have a portable ultrasonic I usually bring but will prefer this in the future). A couple before and afters in different lighting:
I have an old Sonicare toothbrush that I don't need or use. Do you think it would work equally as well?

I got one a couple of weeks ago too. I also really like it! The tonic solution is great and the device certainly takes up less space than the ultrasonic and is super quick and easy to do vs filling ultrasonic etc etc. My only quibble is that its a little hard for me to get the brush into the underside of my engagement ring, but thats more a factor of my ring being a challenge than the brush being problematic. I usually travel with an additional extra soft Radius toothbrush head to clean all of my jewelry but can see traveling with this instead however, diamonds are not the only jewelry I wear and clean......
Has anyone tried to clean non diamond/gold/plat jewelry with it? I know you're not supposed to but curious.
It is specific about not using juli on anything other than stated (diamonds) and I would follow that. What other metals are you referring to?... silver? If so, that should be cleaned by polishing with a silver-specific tarnish cloth.
You don’t want to damage anything beyond what it is intended for and, similarly, you don’t want to do anything to compromise your juli brush!!!
I'm really curious to see if any others have bought this brush... I find my ultrasonic/steamer combo to be so cumbersome and labor-intensive that I barely resort to using it, and I'm not even convinced it does a good job. Most of the time, I use the Connoisseur diamond dazzle stick and dish soap, and also find it leaves grime, requires several passes, and doesn't really clean the nooks and crannies...
Given how much cleaner my teeth feel after using an ultrasonic toothbrush compared to a regular toothbrush, I have high hopes for the Juli brush... but before I bite the bullet, I would love to see more testimonials from others who may have already given it a test drive.
Also, I found a discount code for 20% off if anyone is interested! Takes it from $160 USD to $128USD!!
Code is: WOW20
