Ring Maintenance 101

It's important to take good care of your engagement ring and wedding bands to keep them looking beautiful and sparkling for years to come.

Keep Them Clean

To keep your engagement ring and wedding bands looking their best, you should clean them regularly. You can do this by soaking it in warm water and dish soap for a few minutes, then gently scrubbing it with a soft-bristled brush. Rinse it thoroughly and dry it with a soft cloth.

Store it Safely

When you're not wearing your engagement ring and wedding bands, be sure to store them in a safe place. A jewelry box with soft fabric lining is ideal, or you can use a special ring dish or holder.

Take It Off When Doing Certain Activities

Avoid wearing your engagement ring when doing activities that could damage it, such as gardening, swimming, working out or cleaning. Chemicals in cleaning products or chlorine in swimming pools can damage the metal or stone, and gardening can cause dirt to become trapped in the setting.

Have It Inspected & Maintained

It's a good idea to have your engagement ring inspected every six months to a year to ensure that the setting is secure and the stones are not loose. They can also clean and polish the ring to keep it looking its best. Inspecting your jewelry is always free at Continental Diamond and no appointment is necessary!
