How to Care for your Engagement Ring

It goes without saying that your engagement ring is an important piece of jewelry, and you never want anything to happen to it. Proper care of your ring is extremely important since it’s something that will stay with you for a lifetime. Here are a few recommendations to help you keep your engagement ring as good as new.

Get Regular Check-Ups

You should get your ring professionally checked from time to time. Wearing your ring every day can cause stones to get loose or for the metal to bend. It is important that the prongs are securely holding the diamond together to ensure that the precious diamonds don’t fall out.

Ring Cleansing

You can clean your lab grown diamond jewelry the same way that you do most of your fine jewelry. One simple method is to use a little dish soap and warm water and gently scrub your jewelry with a soft cloth or soft bristle tooth brush. Rinse it clean and then let it dry on a soft cloth. Another options is to use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. If you need more professional cleaning or repairs, please contact us.

Refresh Metal Setting

Over time, the metal on your ring can get tarnished due to moisture and oxygen coming into contact with it. If this happens you can have the ring professionally re-polished. If this is something you would like to do, please contact us.

Remove Ring During Heavy Activities

Doing heavy activities such as gardening, moving furniture, lifting weights, and manual labor could cause your engagement ring to get damaged. It is always best to remove your ring before you do such activities.
