How to Take Care of Your Engagement Ring in 5 tips
Your engagement ring is undoubtedly one of your most valued possession and Jewelry piece. Not only due to its financial value but also its emotional value, reminding you of the magical moment you said “yes” and a promise of a fulfilling life and union.
Taking care of your engagement ring is important to maintain the lustre, beauty, and brightness of its diamond stone. People tend to believe that because of the characteristics of gold and diamonds there are completely out of harm, but that is not the case, there are still some measures to be taken to preserve it.
Here are five simple steps to keep in mind when it comes to your engagement ring and other diamond Jewelry.
Store Your Jewelry Safely:
If you wear your ring occasionally or want to leave it behind before heading for a vacation, make sure to have a safe sanctuary for your ring.
It is recommended to store your jewellery separately including your engagement ring, as they can rub against each other, and even though diamonds are very hard, they can scratch against one another. You can store them in either different boxes or separating them by a silk tissue, or you can also keep them in a fabric-lined jewellery box with partitions.
Clean it once or twice a year:
Diamonds are known to attract grease and oil, and therefore attract dirt and dust. Over time, diamonds start losing their shine and lustre due to that so make sure to clean your ring yourself a couple of times a year. You can do so using a soft cloth or a soft toothbrush and warm, soapy water.
Have it Checked Professionally:
The daily wear affects the fitting of a ring around your finger. It also tends to lose or bend, and so the stones are likely to fall out as the prongs might lose their hold. Therefore, you should get the ring checked by a jeweller to ensure using a professional loupe that all settings are still well in place.
You can also have your ring cleaned professionally by your jeweller using Ultrasonic or Steam cleaners.
Protect it From Your Cosmetics:
Keeping your jewellery away from perfume, chemicals, cosmetics, and soap is recommended. These chemicals can cause build-up on the ring and diamond and could affect its colour and aspect. Therefore, make sure to remove your rings before applying these personal care products or washing your hands.
Protect It During Outdoor Activities:
It is also best to avoid wearing your jewellery when performing certain activities that might expose them to harmful products or get knocked out.
