#protip Sometimes even toothbrushes can be too abrasive and can scratch your diamond. It is best to use a soft bristled toothbrush with a jewelry cleaner or even gentle dish soap.

When cleaning jewelry, always hold the piece carefully and use a fine brush with a jewelry cleanser. Refrain from placing in a home ultrasonic jewelry cleaning machine.

You can also purchase jewelry cleaning kits (like Sparkle Sparkle) that have soft cleaning brushes that will also work well, if not better than a soft bristled toothbrush.
