So to ensure that your engagement ring purchase stays brilliant and beautiful for a lifetime, here are three easy tips from the bridal jewelry professionals at Frank Jewelers.

Tip #1: Remember to Take Off Your Ring!

While we know it’s hard to want to part from your sparkling diamond ring even for a second, it’s a good idea to remove your ring when participating in activities that may hurt it. For example, it’s never ideal to wear your engagement ring while engaging in sports due to how your ring can easily hurt other players. Also participating in hobbies like gardening or pottery can increase the chance that your ring will be scratched, chipped, or worse, lost.

For hands-on activities like this, we recommend that you take off your engagement ring or wedding band and place them somewhere safe until you’re done. Just make sure that you place your ring somewhere safe where it’s unlikely to be misplaced, stolen, or hurt.


Tip #2: Keep Your Ring Clean!

Another great way to ensure the long life of your engagement ring is to find a way to regularly clean your ring at home. While it’s important to have your ring regularly cleaned and inspected by an expert (see tip #3), it is also extremely important to find a way to effectively clean your ring at home. It’s not unusual for your engagement ring to accumulate a certain amount of dirt and oil during everyday wear, but if left unattended, this sort of mess can create long-lasting issues for your ring.

One simple way to clean your piece at home is to simply add a few drops of dish soap to a bowl of warm water and to let your ring soak in the water for 5-10 minutes. After you’ve let it soak, simply rinse your ring off (just make sure the drain is covered!), or carefully scrub it with a toothbrush if dirt remains.

Tip #3: Bring Your Ring to Frank Jewelers!

Just like your regular check-ups and cleanings, it’s also a good idea to bring your engagement rings and wedding jewelry to Frank Jewelers for regular cleanings and inspections every six months or so. Through the use of cutting-edge technologies, our expert staff is able to closely inspect every inch of your ring to ensure that there are no hard-to-see issues that require closer attention.

Further, at Frank Jewelers we are also proud to offer our legendary Peace of Mind extended service plan. Covering ring resizing, diamond tightening and replacement, appraisals, and even a free jar of jewelry cleaner each year, investing in our Peace of Mind service plan is a quick and easy way to make certain that your ring will remain exquisite, no matter what issues might arise.
