5 Products That Will Keep Your Jewelry Sparkling
Whether it's your wedding and engagement rings, an heirloom bracelet that belonged to your grandmother, or that necklace your significant other gave you on your first anniversary, sometimes, jewelry needs a little TLC.
Visiting a jeweler for a cleaning can be pricey, and you may even have to leave your precious baubles there for a few days to get the full treatment. That's where at-home cleaning solutions come in. From ultrasonic cleaners than remove dirt and grime, to polishing cloths and travel-ready solutions that offer a quick cleanup on the go, we've got you covered with the best jewelry cleaners.
Our Top Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner
Using 42kHz of ultrasonic energy and a little bit of water, this cleaner will make jewelry—as well as eyeglasses, dentures, and utensils—look like new. The ultrasonic waves gently remove dirt, oils, lotion, and grime, and the device is preprogrammed with five cleaning cycles so you increase and decrease the cleaning intensity as needed.
While we like many of the Magnasonic's features, our favorite is the fact that it only needs water to do its work, and no extra cleaning solution is necessary. The ultrasonic energy creates microscopic cleansing bubbles that are both gentle and extremely thorough, so even delicate items will be cleanly safely.
A Cleaner for the Most Intense Clean Freaks
This cleaner is completely over the top, and we mean that in the best possible way. It's professional grade and offers three cleaning options—ultrasonic bath, pressurized steam, and UV light sanitation technology. That's right, this baby will sterilize your wedding ring if you want it to! It's also great for items like eyeglasses, baby products (pacifiers and teethers), and old coins.
The ultrasonic function creates 43,000 sonic vibrations per second, which helps restore jewelry to its original shine, while the steam cleaning option is great for jewelry with lots of fine details. The sanitizing compartment is shown to kill 99.9 percent of harmful bacteria, making this cleaner great for jewelry and other items that have been through the wringer and need a serious deep clean.
A Cleaning Wand for People Without a Lot of Dresser Top Space
Not everyone has room for a big jewelry cleaning machine on their dresser tops. This Sonic Dazzle Stick is much more compact and lets you tackle jewelry cleaning in a much more hands-on fashion. Its replaceable brush head oscillates left and right at 5,000 cycles per minute and has ultra-soft bristles with polished tips that will not scratch jewelry.
It comes with two bottles of advanced cleaning solutions—one for gold, platinum, diamonds, and other precious stones, and other for cleaning sterling silver.
A Soft Cloth That Polishes Your Jewelry to a Shine
Sometimes all your wedding ring needs is a little elbow grease to restore the shine. We love this polishing cloth because it doesn't require purchasing extra cleaning solutions or gadgets. The inner cloth is treated with a solution that removes dirt and tarnish, while the outer cloth shines jewelry up quickly and easily. The cloth is BIG, 12 by 15 inches, so you're not going to be struggling to find a clean spot if you're polishing a bunch of jewelry at once.
It's not recommended for fashion or costume jewelry, so readers should keep that in mind, but if you have a sterling silver necklace with a bit of tarnish, this should definitely be your go-to!
An On-the-go Cleaning Solution
We know this sounds like a weirdly specific product, but just imagine you're on your way to a big event and you notice your jewelry looks dingy or has smudges that rubbing it on your shirt won't resolve. That's the Dazzle Stick's time to shine.
This twist-to-dispense pen delivers a special cleaning solution to a flow-through brush that has been engineered to clean behind precious stones and their mountings. Kinda like a laundry detergent pen for your baubles!
