Wear It: Protect your Engagement Ring by Wearing it

This one is our favorite tip, protect your ring by wearing it! That’s right, one of the best ways to protect your ring is to wear it on your finger. 

If you aren’t used to wearing jewelry, it might take a few weeks to get used to having a diamond engagement ring on your finger… but what an exciting thing to get used to! 

By wearing your ring, you will get used to having it on your hand and over time, you will be comfortable enough in your diamond ring to know how to avoid it getting banged up or caught. 

Every time you take your engagement ring off, there is a chance of it getting lost or left behind. By keeping your ring on your finger, you’ll keep tabs on your new precious diamond ring.

Take It Off: When should I take off my Engagement Ring?

Of course, there are times when wearing your diamond ring is not advised. If you are doing to the beach or doing the dishes, take your ring off and keep it in a safe place! 

Every time your ring comes off your finger, it should go in a designated area. Keep a ring holder by the kitchen sink, in the bathroom, and maybe one by your bed! 

We couldn’t help by showing you some of our favorite jewelry holders!

Last but certainly not least, you should regularly check the health our your band and setting. You are a long way away from breaking down your band due to wear, but it’s always good to get in the habit of checking. 

While you check your band for wear, check your setting and make sure that your diamond is properly soldered and secure in its setting. By checking your band and diamond setting, you’ll be able to catch and remove any build-up of unwanted residue from your engagement ring

When cleaning your ring avoid using harsh chemicals. (When using harsh chemicals cleaning your house, make sure you remove your ring!) Although your diamond is one of the toughest/ strongest natural substances on the planet, harsh chemicals can damage the metal of your ring and over time can cause damage to the diamond ring itself.
