It is important to look after your engagement ring as for most it holds a lot of sentimental value and if looked after correctly, can be passed down for generations to come. Employ these following tips to ensure that you are caring for your diamond engagement ring

 

Regular cleaning 

Routined regular cleaning is essential in ensuring the health and longevity of your diamond engagement ring. When there is a buildup of dirt or oil, it begins to block the light that seeps through the stone which lowers the quality of the diamond (not permanently, just when the diamond is dirty). Cleaning your ring shouldn’t be a labour intensive process if you complete it regularly. All you need to do is leave the ring in a bowl of warm soapy water (from anywhere between a few minutes to overnight) and then gently scrub the diamond with a soft bristle (such as a child toothbrush). Try to clean it once every 2-4 weeks. Be careful when cleaning it in a sink as you don’t want the ring accidentally falling down the drain! 

 

Designated area when not wearing 

Although you may tell yourself that you will remember where you left it, don’t take the risk. Create a specific area / ring dish to place your ring when it is not being worn. There is nothing worse than placing an object and then failing to recall where it was last left, especially when it comes to an expensive sentimental item. 

 

Insurance 

Depending on the value (both in dollar amount and sentimental value), it is highly recommended to insure the diamond engagement ring from the moment it leaves the Singapore jewellery designer. There are a few ways that this can be done so it would be best to reach out to your insurance company to discuss the options. 

 

Resizing precautions 

There are various factors that come into play that have the potential to affect the fit of your ring (including seasonal changes in regards to the temperature, weight fluctuations, exercise and travelling). Before jumping into the process of resizing your ring it is important to determine whether any of these factors have come into play or if the ring is simply too big / too small.
