Keeping your diamonds as sparkly as they were on the day you said yes is never an easy task! I mean your ring is something you wear everyday. You shower, cook, sleep and live your life with your engagement ring on. When I first got engaged I cleaned my ring CONSTANTLY in efforts to keep it shiny, but all the store bought cleaners left a weird film or made my diamond look cloudy. So when my jeweler told me about this magic concoction, I was SO thankful.
I do this weekly and have been for 15 years! It works like a charm and my diamond has never shined so bright!
WATCH HOW I DO IT
- Windex or any glass cleaner
- a few drops of dish soap, like Dawn
- soft bristle 'used' toothbrush
- microwave for one minute
I keep the above liquids in a glass container with the lid on, under my kitchen sink. I guess you could keep in the bathroom too, but I prefer under the kitchen sink, because the key step here is the microwave.
** WARNING ** Please be careful when removing solution from the microwave. It is very hot (sometimes bubbly) and will burn your pretty little hands. Trust me, I gave myself a chemical burn once. No fun!
Also, I recommend to ONLY use on *REAL DIAMONDS + GOLD + PLATINUM* Not sure what this may do to faux jewelry? Let's don't chance it.
