Engagement Rings

Whether you are newly engaged or recently married, your engagement and wedding ring will probably be the most important, and expensive, piece of jewelry you will ever wear. And unlike the jewelry you only wear for special occasions, these rings will see daily wear. Here’s some tips for the care of these important rings.

Insurance. Your jeweler may offer replacement stone insurance, but that will not protect you in the case of loss, theft or damage. It is a good idea to get your ring appraised and insured as soon as possible. Most homeowner’s and renters insurance can add it to your existing policy for a nominal charge.

Proper Fit. Most showcase rings are size 6. Unless that is the perfect fit for you, ask your jeweler to fit the ring to your hand. Your ring may feel tight on warm days and loose on cold. When having your ring sized, give yourself time to adjust to the store temperature, you can use that extra time to look at jewelry for your wedding day look.

Proper Care. Some metals and stones require special care. Your jeweler can advise you on the best care practices for your engagement ring. A mild soap and water is usually sufficient to keep your ring sparkling. It is a good idea to remove your ring before putting on lotion, cleaning with harsh chemicals or other damaging activities. You can also ask about having the ring steamed and polished – especially before your wedding day!

Safekeeping. For the few times that you will remove your ring, keep it in a safe place. A jewelry box or bag, ring holder or any other place that it won’t get knocked over or misplaced. Next to the sink is not a good idea unless you have a plumber on speed dial.

Showing it off. As soon as you announce your engagement, people will ask to see the ring. Treat your self to a manicure so you can show with confidence!

The wrong ring. While most brides will love their engagement ring, it is possible that your fiance chose one you don’t. If this happens, it is best to gracefully explain that you were hoping for something different. Many jewelers allow an exchange of the ring within the first month.
