RQOTD - Tuesday

How often do you have your wedding ring cleaned?

Oh goodness...not often enough. Maybe once every few months.

Probably every 6 months.

Never - well, maybe once or twice when I would take it in for sizing.

Every 6 months when I take it in for it's checks.

Maybe once a year at the store where DH bought it. It's free and they do a great job, but we no longer live in that town. And once every few months with the jar cleaner I have at home.

Several times a year. I'll take any excuse to go in there try on all the pretty things while they clean it. The people in the store actually know me, DH AND the kids by name! lol!

I have it inspected twice a year so that they'll replace it if I lose a diamond.

Oh wow, you girls are responsible! I've had mine cleaned professionally once in the 8.5 years that I've had it...

I've done it myself once or twice? No wonder it looks dingy even though it's a beautiful stone.

ETA: We also don't live where it was purchased anymore and the jeweler where I took it charged me $70 to do it...that seemed a little steep to me.

I'm not great at it either! I make dh bring mine in to get cleaned, LOL. Our goal is to have it cleaned around the time of our anniversary, but we skipped last year. He brings it to where he bought it because they let you have one free cleaning a year.

Joy - $70!? Yikes.

No way would I pay $70 to have it cleaned!

Amber does what I do only I was at a loss for words earlier. Free cleaning with my inspection every 6 months for life, and as long as I do this they'll replace the diamond. I think that was one of the reasons DH ended up choosing the ring he liked from that store versus another one. lol.

Um.....never. And I've already been married almost 8 years. Guess I should look into this...?

Joy! $70! Wow. Unreal!

Sophia - Yes. Look into. Just even to be sure that all your prongs are tight and straight. You don't want to loose that diamond!

My warranty is to have it cleaned and checked every year. Whenever I go to the jewelry store where it is from I have it done. I used to work there so I'm usually pretty good about it and about cleaning it at home. I know just what we used in the sonic cleaner so I can get things sparkling like new again in no time! Wink

I'll self clean it more often than taking it in to the jeweler. So I guess between the 2, every few months?

We bought our rings up in LA so we've never gone back to the jeweler to get it cleaned. We have a local jeweler who is great and will fully inspect and clean my ring whenever I take it in (free of charge).
