What You Can Do to Make Your Wedding and Engagement Ring Last
July 21, 20202 min read
When you look at your wedding and engagement ring, your mind probably goes back to when that ring was slipped onto your finger for the very first time, and your heart fluttered because of the special person who gave it to you. Wedding rings are special, and you want to make sure that you can make your ring lasts as long as possible. There are several ways that you can help preserve your wedding band and engagement ring and help the sparkle last.
Regularly Clean It
One of the ways you can help make your wedding band and engagement ring last is to clean it regularly. Daily use can coat the ring with sticky substances and dirt. Cleaning your ring is very simple and can be done at home with just soap, warm water, and a toothbrush. If you need a deeper clean on your ring, you can let it soak in the warm soapy water for 20 minutes and then scrub it with a toothbrush. Be careful with pearl or opal jewelry. But most gemstones, diamonds, and metals can be cleaned this way without any harm. You end up with sparkly rings.
Keep It Protected
Another way you can make your ring last is to protect it. In order to keep your ring protected, it’s a good idea to include jewelry in your home or renter’s insurance policy. If you don't have renters or home insurance, dedicated jewelry insurance like Jeweler's Mutual insurancecan provide more advanced coverage for a small fee with no deductibles. That way, if your jewelry is ever stolen or something happens to it, your insurance policy will cover it. You can also protect your wedding band and engagement ring by taking it off for certain activities. For example, if you’re putting lotion on, removing your ring will prevent it from getting sullied by lotion, which can dull the diamonds and gemstones. It is also advisable to remove your ring when doing dishes, or swimming where it could potentially fall off. See more jewelry care instruction here.
Get a Regular Inspection
Sometimes, time may cause the prongs to get bent on your diamond ring, which could potentially lead to the gemstone falling out. Regularly taking your ring to a certified local jeweler to get it inspected can help you keep your ring still looking new and sparkly. When you take your ring in, the jeweler will examine and fix issues with your ring, clean and polish it for you, helping it last longer and restore the original shine.
You can make your ring last, as long as you take good care of it. By regularly getting it cleaned, keeping it protected, and having regular inspections you can ensure that your wedding ring will be around for years and remind you of the love you and your partner share.

Bought this exact ring last year for my husband, he’s not used to jewelry of any kind and unfortunately lost it in a camping trip. He loved so much I had to buy it again. Her work is impecable and the quality of the ring is phenomenal. Konstanze Is a great person to do business with, you can tell she really care about the costumer satisfaction and the product. Thank you!
My husband bought my (perfect!) engagement ring from Konstanze and we both started looking here for wedding bands. He pointedly said that he didn't want matching bands and was looking at a different style when I told him that I wanted this one. Someone changed his mind very quickly! We got the 3mm and 6mm polished bands in palladium. I love that my wedding set is so unique and I am already wondering which anniversary band I want to get in a few years.
