Congratulations, you’re engaged; now learn how to care for your engagement ring that’s sparkling on your finger! The proposal is one of the most important moments of your relationship, and the symbol of your commitment is always on your finger as a reminder of that amazing moment. Nolan Fields went out of his way to choose the perfect diamond engagement ring from Israel Diamond Supply, and definitely outdid himself putting together an amazing proposal with the help of Lasting Impressions. The proposal went perfectly; she said “YES!” With the ring on her finger, we want to offer her (and YOU!) a few tips on how to care for it:
1. Have your rings regularly inspected: You’ve heard the term “prevention is the best medicine,” and that’s certainly true for your ring. Having your ring inspected annually by a professional jeweler helps limit major problems down the road.
2. Give your ring a day at the spa: Soak your rings weekly in a 50/50 solution of Windex and hydrogen peroxide for five to 10 minutes. Windex will remove dirt and grime, and hydrogen peroxide will kill any bacteria that can cause your finger to break out. Gently scrub your ring with a soft toothbrush. This solution will clean it as well as the most overpriced jewelry cleaners on the market.
3. Do not sleep with your ring on: You may not realize it, but you may be catching the prongs that hold your diamond on your sheets or blankets. Your body also swells at night, and the ring will feel tight. A great habit is to take your ring off when you go home every evening; it is amazing how much better your ring will look and perform long term.
4. Don't wear your ring while working out: If you apply pressure repeatedly from heavy weights and or hit your ring on hard objects, then you can weaken and bend the precious metal. Diamonds will get loose and can potentially fall out. Although diamonds do not scratch, they can chip. Treat your ring with the care and respect it deserves.
5. Don't wear your ring in the swimming pool or hot tub: Chlorine is a harsh chemical that will weaken the alloys in the metal of your ring. If your prongs are weak, then your diamond could fall out.
I hope these tips will help you take care of your wonderful new jewel, so you can ensure it lasts for a lifetime of enjoyment, and to have it around as an heirloom for generations to come. After all, diamonds are forever; be sure you know how to care for your ring forever, too!
