7 Ways to Care For Your Engagement Rings the Right Way

People who are either engaged or married consider their engagement ring as an extremely precious possession. It symbolizes a significant chapter in their lives. When you think about it, engagement rings make a wonderful remembrance which you can pass on to your future generations.

The question is, how can you make your engagement ring last a long time?

Surely, there are tested-and-proven ways that you can do to preserve the quality of your highly valued jewellery. In fact, this blog will enumerate seven ways that you can follow on how to take care of your engagement ring. 

Clean it regularly.

One of the most basic ways to maintain your ring’s quality is to clean it consistently and regularly. Doing so prevents rust and mould from building up. Use a brush with soft bristles and dab it with warm or hot water to rid of any dirt particles built up. You can also use gin which contains alcoholic content to sanitize the metal and the gem. You can also ask your resident jewellery shop for professional recommendations on how to keep your ring spotlessly clean.

Store it properly.

Keep your ring in the box and place the box in an area where there is proper ventilation. Avoid storing it in places where it can easily fall off or where visitors and other people in your household can easily access it.

Know the type of gem on your ring.

Each type of stone or gem in an engagement ring differs a lot. Some have better durability, while others break or melt more easily. Having sufficient background on these details helps you to be smarter in preserving your ring’s quality.

Be careful when taking off your ring.

At times, you might be forced to take off your ring. It can either be due to strenuous activities or tasks as simple as washing your hands or preparing food. It is safer to take off your ring while at home. Make sure you place it in its safety box. On the other hand, taking it off in public spaces may not guarantee that you will not lose your ring. Be very mindful when in crowded areas while wearing your ring.

Appraisal and insurance

Appraising your ring increases its value, and it also keeps the insurance you applied for your belonging more updated. Insurances and appraisals that are up-to-date tend to cost less when it comes to the total sum of its insurance. At the same time, getting insurance for your engagement ring creates a safety net that saves you from the financial troubles of a damaged or lost ring.

Protect it from very strong physical impact.

Even the toughest diamonds need extra TLC and protection every now and then. When you wear your ring, be very careful with your movements. Avoid slapping or tapping people or things strongly. Aside from the fact that this could cause some pain on the person at the receiving end, there is also a chance that your careless actions might chip away chunks of the gem and metal. Distance your ring from pointed edges and rough surfaces to prevent scratches.

Steer clear from abrasive chemicals.

Using harsh chemicals to clean your engagement ring is not advisable. It can potentially lead to the detriment of your ring’s quality. Sometimes, you can use simple methods like steaming, wiping or brushing to get rid of the rust or dust on your ring.
