Whether you’re newly engaged or a newlywed, you’ll want to make sure your rock(s) are well cared for. Most jewelers will recommend that you have your rings cleaned and inspected at least 1-2 times a year, but what about between visits? 

 

We’ve put together some basic how-tos of at-home engagement and wedding band care. Here’s the play-by-play:

Basic How-To

Step 1: Fill a bowl with warm water 

Step 2: Add gentle dishwashing soap

Step 3: Soak rings for 20 to 40 minutes

Step 4: Gently brush with a very soft toothbrush 

Step 5: Air dry or pat with a soft cloth


Now that we’ve got the basics down, let’s cover some of the dos & don’ts of ring care so you can know the ins and outs of keeping your ring sparkling.


Do's & Don'ts of Ring Care

✓ DO clean your rings once a month.

✓ DO take your rings to a jeweler for cleaning and prong inspection one to two times a year.

✓ DO remove your rings while cleaning house or during rigorous sports to avoid damage

✓ DO keep ring dishes around the house for safekeeping (we love these by Houston artist, Box Sparrow Studio).

✓ DO get your ring insured to safeguard this symbol of your marriage.

 

X DON’T use abrasive cleaners like toothpaste, baking soda, or any powdered cleaner.

X DON’T use harsh chemicals like bleach, chlorine, or acetone while wearing your rings.

X DON’T use ultrasonic jewelry cleaners at home (leave it to the pros at the jewelry store)
