For all women who are not used to wearing fine jewelry regularly, wearing an expensive diamond can seem like babysitting an infant. When looking down at the sparkling diamond ring on your ring finger, you will have many questions in your mind about taking care of the engagement ring. Should I remove the ring when taking a shower? Can I wear it to sleep? Can I use face soap to clean expensive wedding rings?
All the questions are valid. The insightful tips that are shared below will help you take good care of your expensive engagement and wedding rings.
Clean The Ring
Accumulation of dirt and oil on the surface of the diamond will block light interactions and will hide the true beauty of engagement rings. You are doing injustice to the stone by keeping it dirty as it will not be able to live up to its full potential. Fortunately, cleaning the ring is not a labor-intensive process. You can keep engagement rings in warm water that is mixed with a few drops of dish wash detergent or soap. Allow the ring to sit in the solution for a few hours and then gently scrub it with a baby toothbrush that has soft bristles. You can then rinse and then pat dry the ring.
Know When To Take Off Or Leave Your Ring On
You might be tempted to slip your ring off before washing your hands, but you should resist the urge to do so. This is because you might leave the ring behind after washing your hand in a public place, say a restaurant. There are also occasions where you should go ringless. For instance, while visiting the beach. This is because swimming can affect the temperature of your body and can cause your fingers to shrink in size, making it easy for engagement rings to slip off.
When you should and shouldn’t wear your diamond ring also depend on the type of stones you have on the ring. A delicate ring with pave set stones might not be suitable to wear during rigorous exercise or while playing games like golf or tennis.
Diamonds Are Tough But Not Unbreakable
You might have heard somewhere that it is impossible to damage a diamond. But it is not true. Diamonds are truly the hardest natural substances in the world, but they are not unbreakable. Diamonds can chip, bruise, or fracture when handled carelessly. Prong-set diamonds can be very secure, however, they can also be damaged by aggressive knocks.
