    I clean mine at home once every week or two (just to keep that sparkler sparkling!) I just put some dish soap in a glass, add hot water from the tap and let the ring sit in it for about 30 minutes. Perfect for when you’re showering or doing your hair and makeup. (I never wear my ring when I’m doing those things) and most jewlers will clean your ring free of charge once a year if not twice if that’s where you bought it from. Smiley smile it’s good to have them inspect the claws so you don’t lose any stones.

    I haven’t had my engagement ring cleaned yet, but I get all my other diamond cleaned every 4-5 months approximately.

    I have to get them done at the shop twice a year. They clean them there, I try to be super careful when I am wearing my ring. I know my parents clean their at home.

    My guy has the very same machine that the jewelers use. So we do all my rings when I think of it or when he asks me if I want them done. Last year we cleaned all the girls ring from my work. They were so happy. If I didn’t have that machine I use jewelry cleaner.

    I don't usually go to the malls or will be near the jewlerer, so I use a light bit of toothpaste once a month or so just to shine it up. I know some jewlerers say not to do that but it makes it sparkle.

    The jeweller my FH got my ring from is his client at work, so he cleans for me whenever I’m in town

    I get mine cleaned whenever I'm in the mall pretty much, so every few months. They also clean it for me when I bring them in for inspection every 6 months.

    My rings were bought from someone, so I do not have cleaning included. I will get it cleaned right before the wedding. I have heard of ways to clean it at home, but jewellers say not to. But, I probably will try it.

    My rings came with a lifetime warranty that includes cleaning, so I go every 6 months as per the warranty.

    I take mine in to my jeweler, who is also a friend, every once in a while.

    I should be better about having it done professionally, but generally I try once a month to clean it at home. Let it soak in warm soapy water for a few minutes to loosen everything up and then take a clean super soft toothbrush and give it a little once over to get the dirt off. Works pretty well!

    I have to take it in for a check up every 6 months with the jeweler. They inspect it and clean it, but anytime that I am in the mall I just drop it off for a cleaning while Im there. So maybe once a month.
