DIY Jewelry Cleaner + Jewelry Collection Organize with Me

DIY Jewelry Cleaner + Jewelry Collection Organize with Me

Clean jewelry is a showstopper.  When the light hits a piece of jewelry just right, you see sparkles all over the room.

I’m a clean freak.  I know, I know…  Shocker.  Tell us something we don’t already know, Ang.  I LOVE clean jewelry.  I’m sharing my hack for cleaning jewelry that will leave your jewels sparkling like they were just picked up from the jewelers.  The best part is that it only requires three ingredients that you almost definitely already own.

Head’s up, I’ve only used this recipe on platinum and gold jewelry pieces.  I’ve never tested it on costume jewelry or silver, so I would recommend spot testing before using on costume or silver pieces as I don’t know how they will turn out.

I mean, look at that ring SHINE!

Let’s chat about my wedding rings.  One of my most often asked questions is the details about my engagement ring and wedding band.  Here’s what I know:

  • The main stone is a radiant cut diamond.
  • My wedding band is larger stones than the band on the engagement ring.
  • My wedding band and engagement ring are both eternity rings, which means that the diamonds continue all the way around the ring.  This was something I wanted so you could see bling as I waved goodbye LOLOLOL.
  • My engagement ring and wedding band are both platinum
  • We had both my engagement ring and wedding band reset because the settings were very metal heavy.  By resetting the stones and removing some of the metal band, we had to add and additional diamond into the band.
  • My newest band is a 5 year anniversary ring and push present combined.
  • My anniversary band is a yellow gold eternity band with halo diamond settings.


I hope that this answers all of your questions about my ring stack!  If not, ask a question below and I can always ask my jeweler for any specific details you may want.

While we’re on the topic of jewelry, why not also do a full on jewelry box clean out?  In today’s video I’m cleaning out my jewelry box with y’all.  I’m also showing you how I organize my collection and my rule for what to keep and what to toss.

    I just wanted to say I am not a big jewelry person but I enjoyed that video so much. I did not know about the DIY jewelry cleaner, I had heard peroxide only so I can’t wait to try it! And I just love your personality. One of my best friends is a big jewelry person and she lives in another state, it made me think of her. I can’t wait to tell her about that amazing piece you keep your jewelry in!

    • Angela Lanter

      I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed the video! Peroxide is great, but the dish soap combo makes them truly SHINE!

  • Sarah de Jongh

    I recently ran out of my cleaner from my jeweler and have been needing to buy some more. So, perfect timing to see your video-I have my rings soaking now! Thanks!!

  • Great video! Do some of the deeper drawers make it harder to find some of the necklaces since they are stacked on top of each other? I am also needing a jewelry organizer but I don’t have space for this nice big white one 🙁

    • Angela Lanter

      I only stack the larger statement necklaces in there because they are too bulky to hang in the sides.
      I added a bunch of different jewelry box and storage options in the post for you to check out!!

  • I think a closet clean out would be fun! I love all things organization so anything would be great! Loved the pantry video! 🙂

    • Angela Lanter

      I have a closet clean out video coming tomorrow at 3pm!

  • Going to try tomorrow….as Im in the house BORED!

  • Brittany Blackburn

    I’ll try this hack with my jewelry!

  • OMG!!! I cannot believe how well this worked!!! Thank you for sharing! I also cannot believe the gunk that came out and was left in the dish. Wow. My rings are so sparkly.

    One question – how often do you clean them like this?

    • Angela Lanter

      I would love to do it weekly, but honestly I forget!

  • Hi Angela! Great post. I have a rainbow moonstone ring with diamonds on it as well and its rose gold. Would this work for my ring? Thanks! Xoxo

    • Angela Lanter

      I would only use this recipe on real gold or platinum, that’s all I’ve tested it on. 🙂

  • This is a great tip! Love your rings — I have a rectangular radiant cut too and always get compliments because it’s unique!

    Do you have a makeup/skincare storage video or post? Or any countertop and/or cabinet products you recommend?

  • Lindsey Clayton

    This is super helpful and your rings are gorgeous!

    • Angela Lanter

      Thank you! Just a head’s up, I wouldn’t use this on any costume jewelry. 🙂

  • So excited to try this, have my necklace In the cleaner as I type this ?

  • Thank you so much ? This is a great tip I am going to try this! Loved your ring and jewelry box.

  • Lindsey McBride

    Thanks so much for being helpful!!

  • Sean Miles

    Wonder if it works on silver necklaces for the kiddos ropes??

    • Angela Lanter

      I’d be careful with sterling. I do this on my gold & platinum jewelry.

  • Juliann Brace

    Awesome video, thank you. I don’t like having my rings look dull and other than a toothbrush and hot water, I’ve never had a great experience getting them clean. I’ve tried your “recipe” and it is wonderful. Thank you again for sharing your expertise!

    I’m not sure if this is the correct place to win a necklace. I’m 52 yrs old, married, and own not one piece of jewelry. I had everything I owned stolen and not insured including my antique wedding rings. A necklace would be lovely for my birthday/Christmas, 12/24/69. I am homeless but blessed staying in a hotel, have a job and a vehicle. Thank you so much. Marjorie Dawn Smith
