What do you use? Iv got platinum wedding and engagement rings, the engagement ring has a diamond in it. What solution do I use to clean it and what material (have heard some materials can scratch the diamond)

I'll check with MrDD when he gets home what they use - I know they also have a polishing type of machine which buffs them up nicely, I keep meaning to ask him to take mine in for a polish!

I put a bit if bicarbonate of soda in a glass with some water and drop the ring in and leave it a couple of hours. Then use an old toothbrush afterwards to give it a gentle brush, gets it pretty clean

At home, he said just hot soap water and gently rub with a toothbrush - you can get the platinum jewellery cleaner too.
If you wanted to pay to get it cleaned in an ultrasonic and polishing machine, they charge £15 a ring but that will strip the rhodium off, or £30 to re-rhodium it.

Fairy liquid neat and a soft toothbrush. That's what the lady at Tiffany's told me to use for my platinum and diamond e & w-rings

I read that Denture tablets are great for cleaning rings. Never tried it though!

My local jewellers told me washing powder! And then I bought a polishing cloth from hsamuels

Tis very hard to scratch a diamond indeed. I take mine to the jewellers every now and then for rerhodium plating anyway, they come back looking new.

I don't. They really need doing though. When we go to turkey we take our rings back to the jewellers that we got our wedding rings from and they re-rodium plate them again for free.
