I noticed that the diamonique cleaner sold is on clearance. I guess they are not using it anymore. I was going to order it, but is there another way to clean this jewelry? Thanks.
I soak my fine jewelry (including dmq) in warm water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid mixed in. Then gently clean the crevices with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and lay on a towel to dry (blot the pieces to absorb excess water). Works for me. Of course I don't use this method with pearls.

I do what Smoochy does and it comes out beautiful. I use Dawn liquid dishwashing soap and all my DQ comes out sparkling clean.

I heard one of the hosts one day a few years ago say not to buy expensive jewelry cleaner. She said she just cleans her diamonique with liquid antibacterial soap and warm water. Works for me! A jeweler told me to clean my jewelry in 1/2 strength ammonia. He told me that when people come in to get their jewelry cleaned in his store, they frequently use full strength ammonia to get them super clean very fast. He said that you should only do that with gold or silver--never plated jewelry. ~~ Tabby

I just bought the Diamonique cleaner on clearance.. I haven't gotten it yet but I hope it works like they say it does.. I have quite a few pieces..Specially "Lisa Mason's Flower Ring".. I have that in gold and it's SO dingy.. It needs a real good cleaning .. I also have a 2 carat ring I use as my engagement ring that has baguettes and also needs a good cleaning. I've tried the dish soap and water but it never comes out as nice as it does at the jeweler but I don't wanna pay to have it cleaned all the time..
I love to soak my jewelry in Palmolive dish liquid, the original green formula.
CLEARANCE? Love it but won't pay nearly as much for S&H as the product cost itself.
I'm running to the phones now......... LOL

Me too. Works no matter what the setting is. No worries and the stones sparkle. If the setting is silver, not soak for more than a minute.
