Does anyone know if its ok to clean platinum and diamonds with this cleaner. The guy in Fields said its fine, but he didnt convince me that he was 100% sure?
I got my ring cleaned recently by a jeweller in Dublin - a little over generous on the handcream. She did it in front of me and recommended I do the same at home. She polished the metal with a gold cloth cleaner. Then she got a little tub of warm (not hot) water and a tiny bit of fairy liquid. She got a very soft bristle paint brush (like one used for watercolours) and just brushed the diamonds gently. Came up beautifully. She advised against the sonic clean because it can loosen the stones in their settings and said that sometimes the metal can get a little damaged from teh cleaning products that the jewellers offered.
I've done it since at home a couple of times and the ring looks lovely and shiny new every time.
