Michael Constantine played Gus Portokalos in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. His character is famous for many things, you can probably think of three things right off the bat but the one we are interested in is his cure for everything by using Windex!
Our friend, Manny Bencomo – private jeweler to the stars – recommends using windex to clean your diamond jewelry and especially your engagement ring!
Keep those old soft toothbrushes after they are worn out from their number one task. Put the plug in your sink (so you don’t lose anything down the drain), give your engagement ring a couple of squirts of Windex, brush around the top and the bottom with the old toothbrush, rinse. It is that easy breezy!
And don’t forget that you should take your engagement ring (and any other significant jewelry that you were a lot) back to the jeweler to tighten prongs and make sure all is good. They will also professionally clean your jewelry which is a nice perk.
But for every day, definitely go with Windex!
