Engagement Ring Care
Why Practice Engagement Ring Care?Engagement rings are one of the most precious treasures that a woman owns. Made from gold that will never corrode and diamonds that are the hardest substance on Earth, a fiancée can also be confident that their engagement ring will be something they can appreciate forever. However, even with love and the confidence of science behind an engagement ring, grime and damage can still wear down the most amazing ring. It’s important for a woman to practice regular engagement ring care to ensure that their piece will stay dazzling for generations. But how can a woman keep her piece perfect?
How to Practice Engagement Ring CareOn her own, a woman can do a lot on her own to practice engagement ring care. The easiest thing to do is to keep a chamois or soft flannel on hand to wipe off the day’s grease, body oils, and lotions before they can build up into grime over time. Keep in mind that even though diamonds and gold are durable materials, diamonds are crystals and can crack or chip if they suffer a blow; gold is a soft metal that can be dented or bent easily. It’s important to take off one’s engagement ring before doing heavy work or lifting. And if you’re determined to do some at-home cleaning, stick to mild detergent, warm water, and a soft toothbrush to do the work.
