Re: How often do you clean your ring?

I have a cleaning solution I use sporadically (like, every year or so) when I notice it's really gunky....

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

DH likes my ring to look nice so he usually cleans it every 3-4 weeks, it's his pride and joy! ROFL. If it were left to me, it'd probably get done every couple of months or so.

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

At home myself almost never. When I was in the states I would take my rings in when ever I was near the jewelery store and had time to run in. My store had free cleanings and polishing so I probably had it done up to several times a month in store. I should also add that I was friends with the owners, so I also went in to chat too

Now I am farther away I get them cleaned twice a year, and might have to start cleaning them myself

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

Once a year professionally, but I also go over it at home, so I voted 6 months. I like taking my larger sets in to have the settings checked while getting them cleaned. I also dont wear my full engagement set as often being so active. It stays pretty clean without the daily wear. My simple sterling silver band I wear in place of my full set is cleaned more often with a polishing cloth. That one grosses me out and I still remove it for 'dirty' work. Full wedding sets with prongs & groves, never removed in dirty work just makes me gag

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

I clean mine about once a week...but we have a sonic jewelry cleaner at work (we use it to clean earmolds) and on Thursdays when I change the solution I drop my ring in for a quick clean. I take it to the jeweler probably twice a year to have the prongs checked.

Unless wearing it in the shower counts, then my engagement ring has been cleaned once, that was when we were buying my wedding band.
