Just as your love grows and deepens over time, your wedding ring should continue to shine brilliantly. To ensure your symbol of love stays as radiant as the day you said “I do,” let’s explore some essential care and maintenance tips.
Cleaning your wedding ring regularly is key to maintaining its sparkle. Over time, dirt, oils, and everyday grime can build up, dulling the shine of your ring.
Here’s how you can keep it clean:
While your wedding ring is designed to withstand everyday wear, it’s essential to protect it from potential damage:
If your wedding ring features gemstones held in place by prongs, regularly inspect the prongs to ensure they are secure. Loose prongs can lead to lost stones. If you notice any issues, visit a jeweller for repairs promptly.
White gold wedding rings are often rhodium-plated to achieve their brilliant white shine. Over time, this plating can wear off, revealing the natural colour of the gold underneath, which may appear slightly yellowish. To restore the bright white appearance, consider having your ring replated every 1-2 years.
Schedule periodic professional inspections of your wedding ring. Jewellers can check for signs of wear and address any issues promptly. They can also provide expert advice on maintaining the beauty of your ring.
If your wedding ring has a heartfelt engraving, it’s essential to be cautious during maintenance. Engravings can wear down over time, so let your jeweller know about the engraving when you take your ring for professional cleaning or repairs.
