If you’re looking for your first diamond ring or a special addition to your jewelry box, it’s crucial for anyone to know, and it’s not common knowledge, how to properly care for their most meaningful valuables. Use this guide to educate yourself in proper care and storage for your new ring.
Keep your new diamond ring safe
One of the top rings on the market today is the Diamond Treasures 14K 2.07ctw Invisible Set Princess Cut Diamond Ring. And while this diamond dazzles and beams with 54 princess cut diamonds invisibly set at the center and cascading down the sides, it’s up to you to keep it safe. Even a ring such as this, made out of one of the hardest substances we know of, it can still chip or break.
Easily one of the most stunning new rings we’ve seen, you’ll fall in love with the white hot Kallati Designs 14K White Gold 2ctw Ring. Designed in 14K white gold, this ring features 36 square princess cut 1.7-2.0mm diamonds in invisible settings. You’ll also find 50 round full cut 1.1-1.9mm diamonds in prong settings. A ring like this must be cherished and you can keep it safe with another helpful tip: remove your rings before using lotions, any kind of make up, hair dye or any cleaning chemicals (glass cleaner is the exception). It would be a shame to let these cosmetics and cleaning products to wear away at a ring like the Kallati Designs 14K White Gold 2ctw Diamond Ring.
It can be all too easy to wear a smaller, more understated piece of diamond jewelry and to jump in a pool or jacuzzi, which is another activity you need to remove your rings for-and a lot of people don’t know it! Let’s take an anniversary ring, for example. Say your husband or partner buys you the thin but astounding 14K Yellow Gold 0.89ctw Green & White Diamond Five-Stone Anniversary Ring, a classic anniversary band with glowing green rings. Crafted from polished 14K yellow gold, this ring boasts five round full cut 2.8-3.8mm green diamonds and 24 round single cut 1.0-1.3mm white diamonds, which line the ring’s gallery for sparkling contrast. Now imagine bleaching the color right out of your precious ring! Of course you want to avoid such a thing.
Remove your rings before jumping in a pool, jacuzzi or hot tub because they contain common bleaches and chlorine can stain diamonds, gemstones and any metal-platinum, gold and so on. Chlorine can cause more damage any ring, even your 14K Yellow Gold 0.89ctw Green & White Diamond Five-Stone Anniversary Ring. Chlorine can sneak in and eat away at all the architecture that keeps your ring together, so take that diamond ring off before you take a tip or dive.
How to clean and store your brand new ring
Many new diamond rings feature multiple things and are sophisticated in their design, thereby demanding a new, more smart way of cleaning them. For instance, take a look at the 14K Gold 0.89ctw Purple & White Diamond Ring, crafted from polished 14K yellow gold, this ring showcases 52 round single cut 1mm white diamonds and 11 round full cut 1.5-2.0mm purple diamonds in prong settings. It’s glamourous and elaborate, so how do you clean such a meticulously refined diamond ring like this one? Frankly, the best way to keep this gem of a ring clean is to have it cleaned by a jeweler. However, if you want to maintain the sparkle and glow, use probably the only household cleaner that doesn’t damage diamond rings: glass cleaner. Simply soak your ring in glass cleaner, gently scrub with s soft toothbrush, and rinse under cold water-and don’t do this over a sink with no stopper. You wouldn’t want to have it slip into the drain.
Finally, how do you store your precious diamonds? To avoid wear, make sure to store your diamond rings in a soft pouch. Store each of your diamond rings in it’s own pouch as well, to avoid rings rubbing and scratching one another. Lastly, make sure to keep your rings out of foot traffic, in fact, store any of your valuables in a fireproof, theft-proof safe. Keeping your diamond rings and other jewelry ensures the safety of such personal treasures.
