The Best Jewelry Cleaners You Can Buy on Amazon
Jewelry cleaner is one of those things you don't think you need in your life until you see the magic firsthand—and then you'll wonder how you lived so long without it. Thing is, not all jewelry cleaners are created equal, and not all serve the same purpose. Before you buy, think about what it is you need jewelry cleaner for specifically. (For example, some formulas are made for cleaning silver, while a jewelry cloth works best for pearls because soaking them can weaken the string.) Below, the best products on Amazon for making your jewelry shine on.
This countertop device is like a time machine for your jewelry: It uses the power of gentle ultrasonic waves to make your grimey pieces look practically new again in just three minutes. And because it works with just tap water, you don't run the risk of ruining your jewelry with harsh chemicals. You can also throw keys, dentures, coins, and eyeglasses in the machine to give them new life, too.
The No-Fail Kit
This jewelry kit is a one-stop shop of everything you need to make every single piece of your jewelry collection bright and shiny, from gold to platinum, and even enamel. The cleaning solution is extra gentle and non-toxic, meaning it won't mess up even your soft stones, and the handy cloth buffs away leftover residue. Which is probably why one Amazon reviewers says, "This stuff works!! My ring doesn't even look like the same ring."
Warning: you might just catch your own reflection in your jewelry after dipping it into this magic solution. It's also insanely easy to use. Just dip your jewelry into the solution for 30 seconds, brush, rinse with lukewarm water, buff with the cloth, and...done. Even deep settings get a good cleaning that lasts with this stuff. (Note: It's not made to be used with silver or pearls.)
Best Engagement Present
Gift this three-pack of jewelry cleaning pens to a newly-engaged pal who's eager to show off her new sparkler, that way she'll always have one handy for on-the-go cleanings. Just a quick twist of the pen releases a micro-fine cleanser that fills in fine scratches on the setting and add instant brilliance to diamonds. The most genius part is that the formula also helps reduce future buildup, so it will keep bling shiny 24/7.
A favorite among professional jewelers, this double-sided flannel cloth is a chemical-free way to buff away dirt and tarnish from your favorite necklaces, watches, earrings and bracelets. It's also extremely easy to use—just firmly rub the jewelry's surface with the white inner cloth to clean it, and buff and polish with the blue outer cloth to give your baubles a brighter-than-sunshine gleam.
You might even find that making your jewelry sparkle will bring you so much joy that you'll want to—and you can—use it over and over.
This ultrasonic cleaning machine has five different settings—from 90 seconds to 600 seconds—so that you can use it on practically any kind of jewelry, and loads of other household items for that matter. It also can carry a haul: the basket is big enough to hold a watch flat, ensuring that every nook and cranny gets cleaned. Speaking of clean, you can also add a little dish soap to make everything that much sparklier.
Best For Silver
This cleaner is the ultimate pick for all of your silver jewelry. All you do is dip your items into the solution (don't let them soak, or you risk ruining any gems) then wipe them down with the tiny little brush that's included. Just a quick rinse with water later, your silver will be as good as new. The only downside? The formula smells a little funky.
If you own an ultrasonic cleaning machine (like one of the two we mentioned above), then this cleaner concentrate is your new BFF. Just add a few drops to the water before you start up the machine, or dilute a small amount of this non-toxic formula to hand wash your jewelry with a soft-bristled brush. Most importantly, it's gentle enough to use on nearly all non-porous gems and most metals (except for silver).
