9 Things You Should Never Do While Wearing Diamond Rings

things you should never do to diamonds

Because diamond rings are a significant and often substantial investment, proper care is essential.

As a result, diamond ring owners should be aware of a few things they should never do while wearing their rings in order to better protect their investment and keep their diamond rings in top shape for years and generations to come.

  1. Doing The Dishes

    Because kitchen drains and diamond rings have a long-standing animosity, there are numerous other reasons to remove or protect your diamond rings before washing the dishes. Your diamond rings' metal surfaces can be damaged by the harsh chemicals and dyes in dish soap, as well as the sparkle of the stones themselves.

    Using scouring sponges to clean the dishes, on the other hand, can damage the finish on your diamond rings. Play it safe and remove your diamond rings when you're cleaning a sink full of dishes or just a few plates and cups.

    Keep your diamond rings on by wearing a pair of heavy-duty vinyl gloves to keep them safe from scratches.

  2. Using Hand Soap

    Whenever you're near a sink, remove your diamond rings and wash your hands while you're there. You should remove your diamond rings before washing your hands, as dish soaps contain the same dyes and chemicals as hand soap, so you should do the same.

    If you wash your hands a lot, you may want to invest in a small jewelry dish to keep by the sink to keep your diamond rings safe.

  3. Bathing and Showering

    Hand washing and showering should be done without diamond rings as a matter of course.

    Body soaps, shampoos, and conditioners all contain the same additives found in hand soaps. To make matters worse, these chemicals can leave residue buildups on the diamond rings' stones, reducing their brilliance and causing them to quickly become dull.

  4. Using Hand Lotions

    As a matter of course, women should not wash their hands or take showers while wearing diamond rings.

    Hand soaps contain the same ingredients as body soaps, shampoos, and conditioners. Worse, residue buildup on the diamonds from these chemicals can reduce their luster and cause them to dull quickly.

  5. Applying Makeup

    Women should also take care when applying make up as well. A dusty foundation, powdered eye shadow or blush can quickly dull your diamond ring's stones, even if it doesn't appear to be a problem.

    Liquid makeup, such as foundations and concealers, can cling to the settings and facets of diamond rings, accumulating a foul film. Various harsh chemicals found in some make-up removers and facial cleaners can damage diamond rings. When it comes to your morning and nighttime beauty routines, it's best to keep your diamond rings out of the way.

  6. Moving From Indoors to Outdoors

    Swimming is the best way to cool down on a hot day, especially now that the weather is warming up.

    When wearing diamond rings, this is a no-no. Swimming, whether in a backyard pool or in the ocean, is one activity that should not be accompanied by diamond rings.

    In addition to the chemicals and other water content, swimming is a prime opportunity for diamond rings to become loose and dislodged from the finger. The chances of regaining the diamond rings if they fall off while swimming are slim to none.

    Before taking the plunge, diamond rings should be kept at home or in a safe place.

  7. Gardening

    Gardening and yard work are also popular summertime pastimes.

    Wearing diamond rings while doing either of these things is a no-no for a variety of reasons. Dirt and yard debris can become lodged in the settings of diamond rings when engaged in both activities. Depending on the activity, the diamond rings may also be exposed to various chemicals, such as fertilizers, which can damage their finish and the diamonds within.

    It is possible that the impact from various tools and lawn equipment, even if gardening gloves are worn to protect the diamond rings from certain exposure, could damage them. As a result, if you're going to be working in the yard or garden, it's best to leave the diamond rings inside someplace safe.

  8. Playing Sports

    Playing sports is next on the list of things you should never do while wearing diamond rings.

    Playing sports can be very physically demanding, and that makes it a bad idea to wear diamond rings while doing so. Diamond rings can be damaged if they are subjected to the high levels of physical contact common in sports.

    Because of the possible damage that can be done to a diamond ring's setting, it is possible for the stones to fall out of the diamond rings, leading to an extremely tragic loss. As a result of the increased exertion that comes with participating in sports, athletes' bodies naturally produce a large amount of sweat, which is then mixed with various dirt and oils.

    Excess excrement can build up on diamond rings, dulling both metal and stones in the diamond rings, increasing the frequency of diamond ring cleaning. After the activity is over and you've had a chance to shower off, diamond rings are best left at home or in a locker.

  9. Shopping for Diamond Rings

    To be honest, shopping for new diamond rings (or anything else) is one of the worst things you can do while wearing your current ones.

    Because of this, you should always leave your diamond rings at home when you go shopping and browsing. There are numerous reasons for this.

    A retail jeweler's inventory of diamond rings must be safeguarded at all costs if the business is to remain secure. At the same time, delivering excellent service to clients is a top priority. A salesperson may have a difficult time keeping track of which diamond rings belong to the store and which to the customer if customers bring in their own diamond rings and then proceed to try on an assortment of new diamond rings.

    Trying to sort out whose diamond rings are whose in front of a customer while also trying to maintain appropriate customer relations without making it appear as though they are accusing the customer of theft can put a clerk in an awkward position.

    Although it may seem unlikely, many experienced jewel thieves use this exact tactic every day to steal diamond rings from jewelers all over the world.

    Most people will go to a store that sells expensive diamond rings and ask the salesperson to let them try on a variety of rings, no matter how expensive they are. For now, the diamond rings they are already wearing, which are typically fakes or low-quality copies, will be the focus of their attention.

    As soon as the clerk is distracted, they will swap out the expensive diamond rings in the display case for the fakes they are currently wearing. As long as the clerk isn't paying close enough attention, they won't necessarily notice that the thief has swapped one or more high-priced diamond rings for fake diamond rings when placing the display case back into the counter.

    When looking for new diamond rings or jewelry in general, it's best to leave your existing diamond rings at home to avoid any suspicion.
