Tips for a Long-Lasting Engagement Ring
Tip #1: Keep it Clean
Although diamonds are among the hardest materials on Earth, their edges are still prone to breakage and damage if not properly taken care of. Taking a few precautionary steps can really go a long way when it comes to making your engagement rings last.
#1. Avoid Chemicals: While many brides know that you shouldn't expose your rings to harsh household chemicals, everyday lotions and soaps can also cause damage to rings by getting stuck between prongs. To prevent these sorts of everyday chemicals, try taking off your ring and placing it somewhere safe while performing household tasks such as cleaning, painting, etc.
#2. Clean Regularly: An indisputable part of keeping your engagement ring in tip-top shape is to regularly have your piece cleaned by your or a jewelry professional. If visiting a jeweler for a clean-up is not feasible, purchase a brand name jewelry cleaner, soak your ring, and gently scrub it with a toothbrush.
Tip #2: Have it Checked Regularly
Similar to your own health, having your engagement ring or wedding band checked regularly is a sure way to keep your ring in great condition. The recommendation from jewelry professionals is that you visit your local full-service jeweler—such as Trice Jewelers—at least twice a year so that a professional can check the entirety of the engagement ring's structure including the diamond condition, prongs strength, and detailing. Loose prongs can sometimes cause diamonds to fall out and regular check-ups allow brides to keep the band's brilliance and the diamond secure.
Tip #3: Know When to Remove Your Rings
Some brides may be afraid to take off their engagement rings from time to time in fear of losing them, there are some environments in where wearing your ring can potentially cause more harm than good.
Try to take off your ring when you are:
At home using harsh chemicals
Doing the dishes
Gardening or other hands-on hobbies
Playing Sports (or Swimming)
Additionally, it's important to note that our bridal experts recommend that you don't take your ring off when you are in a public restroom. Too often, we hear of engagement rings that get left behind or that accidentally fall into drains, so take extra precaution when in public areas.
