A summer’s worth of sunscreen, moisturizer and mosquito spray has probably left enough build up on your jewelry to diminish its shine and colour.
The gunky, rusty appearance that your finest pieces have taken on is disappointing, isn’t it? After all, real gold, silver and precious gemstones aren’t cheap.
Though out of the hundreds to choose from, it all comes back to this device: Magnasonic’s Professional Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner.
Using only water and ultrasonic waves, it works to restore your valuables to their former glory, removing dirt and grime in just minutes.
With a high 4.4 out of five star rating, its results are promising. But if the hype surrounding the Magnasonic Professional Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner sounds like a bunch of nonsense to you, let us help you discover what the product’s nearly 11,000 ratings have to say.

What does it do?
The Magnasonic Professional Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner’s main function is to clean the goop off your jewelry using one of its five preset cleaning cycles ranging from 90 to 480 seconds.
What’s great about the preset cleaning cycles is that you can easily control the intensity of the clean you need on not only jewelry, but on eyeglasses, dentures, razor blades, utensils and so much more.
All you have to do is fill the tank with water and insert your items for professional results. To take your clean to the next level, you can also add a bit of liquid hand or dish soap without having to worry about damaging delicate items.
Either way, the bulk of the work is done by ultrasonic waves which create millions of microscopic cleansing bubbles that gently lift scum off your jewelry without any harsh scrubbing or chemicals.
When you choose your desired clean cycle, simply watch the digital display count down to the end. The cleaner automatically shuts off once it has done its job.
Along with the Magnasonic Professional Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner, you’ll receive a cleaning basket and an instruction manual.
I you’re wondering exactly how many pieces you can clean at once, the cleaner has a 20 ounce (600ml) capacity.
In other words, you’ll be able to shine up a watch, keychain and ring all in one go.
What are customers saying?
In short: Amazon shoppers truly believe this is the jewellery cleaner you’ll love. Even a professional jeweller recommends that you “buy this one.”
“I’ve been in the jewelry business for decades now and have used many cleaners, solutions, machines, cloths, and chemical treatments. They all have merit for what I wanted them to do. Simply, this Magnasonic is the best ultrasonic cleaner at this price point,” a five-star reviewer said. “You can buy bigger and more expensive, but why? You want a great cleaner? This does the job!”
Some things that the pro jeweller cautioned against:
Never use with pearls
Do not use with softer stone jewelry like opals and corals
Never use with any piece that’s cracked or loose
Always double-check with manufacturers and consult the web before putting any coloured stone in an ultrasonic cleaner
“This inexpensive machine blows all the competition out of the water. I was very skeptical at first - you're telling me a $50 machine will make my jewels shine like the day they came from the jewellery store? I thought all the reviews were misleading or rather biased as you see I am a frequent jewellery cleaner...” said another five-star reviewer.
The end result? Way better than what they expected.
“In went a mixture of rings, earrings and necklaces. When I opened up the machine, it was Christmas Day come early. Sometimes all you need is a good machine that keeps everything shiny - as it should be.”
As Amazon’s no. 1 choice in the category of ultrasonic jewelry cleaners, its hard for us to be doubtful of its quality and performance, especially with the immense number of positive reviews attached to it.
Overall, for at-home jewellery cleaning (which we’ll be doing a lot more of during the pandemic), the Magnasonic Professional Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner is a must-try.
