DIY Ring and Jewelry Cleaning!

As counter-intuitive as it sounds, avoid excessive cleaning of your jewelry, as it can lead to wear and tear over time. Be cautious when using at-home ultrasonic cleaners, especially for delicate designs like micro-pave' or tension set rings. Ultrasonic cleaning may cause stones to vibrate and loosen in their settings, leading to potential loss. Below are some safer and effective methods of cleaning your jewelry on the go or at home!
 
Here is a great at home, DIY cleaning solution that is safer and easy to do: 
Here's a simple and safe DIY cleaning solution for your jewelry at home:
1) Mix 1 part Dawn dish soap (with de-greasing power) with 5 parts warm/hot water.
2) Soak your jewelry for 10-20 minutes, then gently brush with a soft-bristle brush, focusing on areas under the diamond or setting.
3) Cover your drain and then rinse your jewelry with warm water.
3) Pat dry, place on a tissue, and blow dry on high or medium until completely dry.
Blow drying removes water residue, enhancing the brilliance of diamonds or gemstones. Ensure your jewelry is in an enclosed area to prevent it from getting blown away, use a low setting for blow drying, and let the ring cool before handling.

TCG On-the-Go and At-Home Cleaning Spray:
I highly recommend our TCG Brilliant Diamond and Gemstone Spray Cleaner. After many years in the trade, I couldn't find a better at-home cleaner than my simple mix of Dawn dish soap, warm water, and a blow dryer for quick cleans. This spray is water-soluble, removing dirt, oils, and tap water residues. It's endorsed by one of the world's two forensic gemologists, making it a trusted choice for keeping your jewelry sparkling.
