    Lore, I agree with Sunstorm about frequent cleaning. I keep a jar of jewelry cleaner in my bathroom cabinet, and I soak my diamond ring most evenings and then brush and rinse before bed or the next morning. I rarely bother with an ultrasonic. The key is to never let grime build up, so cleaning every couple of days is very helpful and keeps the diamond looking its best.

    Be certain to get the same label as pictured in the link. They do make other cleaners, but this one is for gold, platinum, and diamonds.

    Thanks DS! I've heard that jewelry cleaner can be dangerous if the ring is left in there too long - is there any truth to that?

    So far we've been washing it with a little bit of dish detergent and warm water, but I'm going to want a better, more permanent solution. The jewelry cleaner seems like a good compromise to the ultrasound.

    What a beautiful ring!!!

    Stunning.

    I’m hesitant with an ultrasonic. Ours is channel set on the band and having diamonds vibrate in that setting rubbing against each other ... not something I would do regularly.

    Thank you! After a year it still looks really nice with regular cleaning in my ammonia/water mix and baby toothbrush

    I see your thread has been revived =)2. I missed it the first time around, but wanted to add that the ring is absolutely gorgeous, you did great!!! Congratulations! Did you have the wedding already? Did you your fiance (or maybe wife!) choose her wedding band? We'd love to see hand shots with the band next to her beautiful e-ring ;)2.

    And to not leave you out.....what does your band look like?!

    P.S. Super hot water and dish soap and a baby tooth brush are the way I clean my jewelry coupled with a cleaner like DS mentioned. If you're looking for more ideas, search 'best way to clean jewelry' or something similar in the search bar. There have been threads on this topic in the past =)2. But I think your current method is just fine!

    I'm just glad I was able to inspire others with my ring (although the design is m-2-b's)!

    My band is a simple Benchmark platinum ring with comfort fit. It looks like this:

    We're not married yet but are actively shopping for her wedding band. We had settled on the Vatche Charis Pave but the diamonds don't shine as much we had hoped, so now we are trying to go with the WF Elena ring. Once I get it we'll be able to compare it side by side with the Charis. Thank goodness for WF's great customer service.
