It’s hard not to stare at the beautiful sparkle of your new engagement ring. Keeping it sparkly and in good condition for years to come isn’t difficult, but it does require some care. Here are six tips for taking care of your diamond engagement ring.
Purchase Insurance for Your Diamond Engagement Ring
Insurance protects your investment in case your ring is stolen, lost, or damaged. Have your custom jewelry appraised as the cost of diamonds and precious metals rises, about every five years is a good idea.
Don’t Take Off Wedding Rings in Public
When washing your hands in a public restroom, don’t take off your ring. It might slip down the drain or get left on the ledge.
Keep Your Custom Engagement Ring Clean
Keeping your diamond engagement ring clean is good for it and helps it continue to sparkle, but don’t use random household cleaners on it. For home cleaning, mix a few drops of mild dish detergent with warm water, let the ring soak, then gently clean it with a soft toothbrush and rinse in warm water. Never clean your ring over a drain. Have rings professionally cleaned occasionally.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals
Harsh chemicals, like bleach and other cleaning products, can damage your wedding rings. Remove rings when you need to use harsh products.
Schedule Regular Maintenance for Custom Jewelry
Visit a jeweller for a maintenance visit once or twice a year to keep custom jewelry in good condition. They can discover and repair potential problems early before your diamond falls out due to a bent prong.
Store Jewelry Properly
When not wearing your engagement ring, store it in a clean, dry place where it won’t rub against other pieces of jewelry, like a small fabric-lined jewelry box.
