So the wedding is over, the vows have been said, the cake is all gone, and your luggage is unpacked from your honeymoon. Before you go back to the ins and outs of everyday life, it’s important to know how to care for that gorgeous set of rings you’ll wear every day. These seven simple tips will help you keep your engagement ring as safe, sound and sparkly as possible.
Purchase insurance or add your ring to your property policy. Insurance is necessary to protect your investment if it gets lost, stolen or damaged.
Always handle diamonds rings by their metal band and avoid touching the gemstones. Fingers are covered in oils that can dull their sparkle.
Remove rings before applying lotions and creams. They will lose their brilliance and need professional cleanings more often.
Avoid wearing your rings while cleaning around the house. Harsh cleaning supplies have chemicals that could permanently damage your ring.
Drains are a ring’s greatest enemy. Never remove your rings before you wash your hands in a public restroom or place your rings on or near a sink.
Never wear your rings in the ocean. Cold water can shrink fingers. Your rings could slip off without your knowledge.
Have your rings inspected and cleaned by a professional jeweler every year.
