Whatever the age of your engagement, it is never too late to learn how to properly care for your wedding band. Maintaining your engagement ring daily will help it age gracefully and ensure that all of the stones and prongs remain in place. While it is true that diamonds last a lifetime, an engagement ring is a significant investment that should be treated with respect and care.
When it's time to take off your engagement ring, know when to do so.
The thin, dainty engagement ring look has become a popular and sought-after style in recent years. We even have a "super-slim" option! These styles, while fashionable, are delicate and should be handled with care. Your engagement ring's care includes more than just what you should and shouldn't do with it! It's never a good idea to work out while wearing your engagement ring, whether you're lifting weights or running. Not only does this increase the risk of a prong getting caught or your band bending, but it is also unhygienic! Sweat will do nothing to enhance the radiance of your center stone! Wearing your ring while exercising isn't the only time it's appropriate to remove it. Housework, like working out, can necessitate a lot of lifting and scurrying. Another situation in which taking off your ring is the best course of action!
Avoid contact with cleaning chemicals that contain abrasive agents.
You need to be aware of what chemicals your engagement ring comes into contact with when learning how to care for it. As with housework and exercise, you should not wear your ring while cleaning chemicals are in use!! Fine jewelry, especially rings, can be damaged by certain cleaning agents because of the ease with which they can come into contact with your hands. The metal of the ring can be damaged by any harsh chemicals. Colored precious gemstones like emeralds can also be damaged by bleaching. It's best to use our cleaning pen or soft-bristle toothbrush and a bit of dish soap to keep the shine on your ring for as long as possible.
Be aware of how your engagement ring and wedding band complement each other.
You should think about how the wedding band you choose will fit with your engagement ring before you buy it. We have a wide variety of wedding band styles here at Diamond Registry, and nearly all of our rings match perfectly with them. In order for the engagement ring and wedding band to be perfectly aligned, the wedding band must sit flush with the ring. It's even possible to get a wedding band that's completely invisible, thanks to our Invisible Gallery design. Choosing a wedding band that complements your engagement ring is an important consideration. We advise against wearing three-row wedding bands with a three-row engagement ring because the stones on both rings are more likely to come loose when they rub against each other. There are thicker single row pave bands and even two row bands that give the inclusion of a three row band without running the risk of stones becoming loose for those who are still drawn to that extra sparkle!
Make sure your engagement ring is the correct size.
Another important part of caring for your engagement ring is making sure it fits. If your ring doesn't fit snugly on your finger, it's likely to spin around. When the ring is spinning, it is more likely to hit something, causing loose stones or prongs to fall out. You may even see the band warp into your finger's shape due to an excessively large size. The ring's fit is also critical for safety reasons, as you don't want it to fall off! The first ring resizing is free at Diamond Registry, but it is recommended that you have your finger measured by one of our design consultants to ensure that your ring will fit properly before it is manufactured!
Do this every day.
Using our cleaning pen or soft-bristle toothbrush and a bit of dish soap, you can maintain the beauty of your ring for many years to come. If you happen to be in New York City, we'd be happy to clean your DR ring for you! In order to avoid damaging your engagement ring, avoid using any harsh cleaning chemicals at all costs.
You should remove it before you go to sleep and put it somewhere safe.
A beautiful engagement ring on your finger while exercising, cleaning, or doing household chores can be difficult to remove once you've said yes. What about when you go to sleep?? Yes, it's crucial to put your ring away once and for all. In the course of your sleep, it's quite possible that your wedding band will become entangled in your hair or the fabric of your pillows and sheets, resulting in the loss of your center stone. Putting your weight on your engagement ring while you sleep can also cause damage to the band or the prongs, causing them to bend. The proper care of your engagement ring requires that you avoid sleeping in your ring at all costs. Take your engagement ring off at night and keep it in the same place to ensure its safety and prevent it from being misplaced!
