Tara from PrimeStyle brings us our latest insider tips on… How to Take Care of Your Engagement Ring.
It happened—a normal Tuesday date night sparked into one of the most important and memorable days of your life. Whether the proposal was spontaneous, planned, romantic, or silly, everything has changed now. Suddenly, you have a fiancé, a wedding to plan, and an engagement ring to take care of.
So as you wade through the unfamiliar waters of an important new item, don’t worry too much. There are professionals who can help you learn exactly how to take care of this precious piece of jewelry. Here is a compilation of engagement ring-care tips.
Don’t Wear Your Ring 24-7
Your new engagement ring has the potential to be an extension of your hand. You want to wear it all the time. It reminds you of that special someone, and let’s be honest, it is beautiful, but you shouldn’t wear it all the time. There are certain activities that you really shouldn’t wear your ring while doing—your ring is delicate, so you shouldn’t wear it while doing manual labor or even cleaning.
Have a Special Place to Store It
If you don’t plan to wear your beautiful engagement ring all the time (and you shouldn’t), you need to have a place to store your ring. Whether you hold on to the ring box or have a special place in your jewelry box for your ring, know where you keep it!
You want to know just where to find your ring, and always store your ring in that spot—that way, you avoid panic if it goes missing!
How to Clean Your Engagement Ring
This tip seems extremely, well, basic, but it can easily be overlooked. Everyday life paired with planning a wedding can drive a bride-to-be absolutely crazy, so it is easy to forget the simplest things like cleaning your engagement ring.
After all, it’s always gorgeous, sparkly and full of promise, so why would you think to take it off and clean it? Nonetheless, it is extremely important to the life and sparkle of your ring to keep it squeaky clean!
Experts advise that you take your engagement ring to a professional jeweler at least once a year to keep your ring spic and span for the long run—just like your love affair!
Between professional cleanings, you can clean the ring yourself, but be sure to double-check with your jeweler beforehand to make sure your soap/solvent is safe for both your stone and your band—the pros should be able to tell you the perfect way to keep your ring sparkling between professional cleanings.
Don’t Resize It Right Away
Has your precious engagement ring felt a little snug as of late and you’re considering having it resized? You may want to wait. Women’s bodies, for example, tend to swell during certain times of the month or change in weather or even pregnancy. During these times, determining the ring size can be extremely tough because one minute the ring can’t fit and, in a few months, it will be fitting just like new!
It is hard to believe or even think about something happening to your engagement ring, but, believe it or now, it happens, and it is better to be prepared now than devastated later. Learn why it’s important to insure your engagement ring even as you safeguard it!
These are just a few tips on how to care for your engagement ring, but one thing is clear—you have embarked on a new journey.
After all, F. Scott Fitzgerald was right when he said, “There are all types of love in this world but never the same love twice.” Take your engagement ring as a symbol of your unique love, and cherish it like the treasure it is.
