I have only seen cheap pave. Does High quality pave sparkle really well like a larger ideal would? Or does it only sorta twinkle?

I have also always wondered how do you keep it clean? Wouldn't an ultrasonic make it fall out? I am not talking channel set stuff here.

How do you get the bottom clean?
a dirty pavillion makes my center sparkle less, so I am sure it would on pave.

I LOVE pave'! I have several fine quality pave pieces, and they really sparkle! As long as the setting is somewhat open on the underside, the pieces are really easy to keep clean, especially look good after being steamed. I bought a little cheap espresso machine and use the steam function for my jewelry, works like a charm!

Raech, the DVatche pave xprong has very light pave but it dances and sparkles even tho the actual carat weight is low and the stones tiny. It gives a nice accent....is not hard to keep clean at all. It's has an open scrollwork in the back.

..I find the pave easy to care for. Heavier weight stones might be a different matter tho...but these sparkle all the time.

Easy to care for. Jasmin's steam treatment works very well and you might also try light dabbing with alcholol.
Removes residue and oil.

I find that gently using a soft child's toothbrush with mild liquid soap keeps my jewelry sparkly.
I also sometimes soak my rings in jewelry cleaner (sudsy ammonia).

The jewelery cleaners - dishwashing liquid, ammonia, etc. all do a great cleaning job. I also bought a pair of long tweezers and when the tea kettle starts to steam, I hold my jewlery over the steam for a few seconds. I put a paper towel around the ring and then hold it with the tweezers. You have to put it down to cool for a few seconds as it gets very hot. This works well for me.

I do exactly the same. Keeps my pave set rings looking fantastic.

Hi Jasmin. Do you put the jewelry to be cleaned in the spot where the expresso goes or do you use the steam from the milk frothing jet?

Espresso goes in there?? Yes, I use the steamer attachment that is supposed to be used for frothing milk? I dont know, I just bought it for the steamer for my jewelry!! I never could get my jewelry to look as sparkly as when I had it steamed at the jewelers, but with this little steamer it looks just as good!

edited to add: my jeweler sold me a pair of his big jewelry tweezers that he uses to steam with, they are really long and have rubber tips, so it doesnt scratch the jewelry.

I tried the expresso machine thing off a suggestion on another thread. On that note, I currently use a battery operated toothbrush with the standard ammonia dilution. Works wonders for me.

Jasmin, could you puuuulllleeeeze post a picture of your pave ring? Or are you gonna make me go digging through the archives?

Susi, I never tire looking at your ring. It's a beauty.

What is the standard ammonia dilution? 1/2 ammonia and 1/2 water?
