I''m so confused! I''ve read great things about the SI ultra-sonic cleaner. I currently have a Hagerty sonic cleaner. Is there some great difference between these two products?

Thanks!

An ultrasonic cleaner uses very high-frequency vibrations to power the dirt off your jewelry. "Sonic" cleaners are cheap knock-offs that do nothing but shake your jewelry around for a few minutes. They are marketed by companies hoping you''ll be confused by the terminology and buy their products simply because they cost less than ultrasonic cleaners, which typically cost around $100.

GOODNESS!
I received my Hagerty Sonic Jewelry Cleaner from my jeweler when I picked-up my ring. I clean it everyday and use the little brush too, so it''s always nice and clean.

Maybe Santa will bring me one of those cool SI Ultra Sonic Cleaners I hear raves about!


Thanks!

It''s not that they don''t work, it''s just that they don''t work any better than soaking your ring in cleaning solution and brushing it.

The supply catalogs sell those things for about $5 a piece to be used as exactly the sort of lagniappe you describe.
