Caring For Your Ring

While diamonds and precious metals are not easily damaged, they do need frequent care. Regular cleaning and “check ups” will keep your ring looking pristine throughout your life.

Here are a few simple habits that will help avoid deterioration:

Step 1: Prevent damage

  • Pick up your ring from the band, not the center stone. This keeps your setting from becoming loose. And when you avoid touching the stone, you’ll protect it from the build up that comes from our skin’s natural oils.
  • Store your ring separate from other jewelry. This prevents damage to or by other items.
  • Avoid wearing your ring during physical activity. When you wear your ring while exercising or during competitive sports, you risk damage.
  • Remove your ring before coming into contact with household cleaning products (bleach, furniture polish, etc) or abrasive liquids (hair dye or paint).

Step 2: Clean your ring

Rings can collect build-up from common cosmetics such as moisturizers, makeup or perfume. Dirt and oil are also picked up during daily wear.
It’s best to have your ring cleaned by a professional every three months. If you send it back to us, we’ll clean and polish it, then get it back to you in just a few days.

How to clean your ring at home:

Cleaning your ring at home is simple:

  1. With a small drop of washing up liquid, gently scrub your ring with a soft clean toothbrush.
  2. Rinse your ring under warm water and gently scrub again to remove any soap residue.
  3. Dry with a microfiber cloth.

Ideally, clean your ring every couple of weeks and have it cleaned professionally every three to six months.

If you bring us your ring for a cleaning within the first six months of purchase, we’ll perform a ring inspection to check for any damage that may have happened while getting used to your new ring.
