How to Properly Care for Your Engagement Ring

How to Properly Care for Your Engagement Ring

Your engagement ring is likely the most important (and expensive) piece of jewelry that you own. When you say “I do,” your ring serves as a symbol of your eternal love; just like your love, your ring should last a lifetime! Caring for your engagement ring properly is the best way to ensure it can stand the test of time. Each ring is a little different, but you can use these general care tips as a starting point to maintain your ring until the wedding day and long after that!

Schedule Regular Maintenance Appointments

To keep your ring in optimal condition, you should visit a professional jeweler at least once a year to have your ring inspected. A maintenance appointment will include checking the stone, prongs, and band for any signs of damage that need to be repaired. Failing to take your ring for maintenance can lead to prongs that are loose, which could lead to the stone falling out. Maintenance appointments also act as the perfect time to get your engagement ring cleaned so it looks as beautiful and sparkly as the day the question was popped.   

Insure Your Ring

Purchasing insurance for your ring protects you in the event of theft, loss, damage, and other unforeseen events. Ring insurance is affordable and can even be added to some existing insurance plans you have. If something happens to your ring, ring insurance will cover the cost of repairing or replacing it.

Schedule an Appointment With Date & Time

As long as you take care of your diamond, you should have no problems with it lasting forever! Diamonds are extremely durable and can be worn freely during your daily activities. If something were to happen to your diamond, you can always take it to use to get it double-checked. That being said, being proactive in maintaining your engagement ring will keep in great shape for many years to come! Scheduling regular maintenance appointments will help to ensure your diamond keeps sparkling and shining like the day you got it.
