5 Tips on Caring for Your Wedding Rings

Use these simple tips to take care of your ring, so it will always be as flawless as it was on your wedding day.


Take It Off

Although this may seem hard to believe, a big part of caring for your ring means taking it off when you’re active. Weather you’re playing sports, weeding your garden or cleaning your house, make sure to take your rings off to avoid chipping the diamond or exposing the ring to harsh chemicals.


Keep it Safe

When you take off your ring to prevent it from getting damaged, make sure you have a safe place to store it. Whether it’s locked in a separate box or held in a jewelry compartment, make sure you put it in a memorable place and keep it away from other items so that it doesn’t get scratched.


Beauty Products and Diamonds Don’t Mix

When you apply body lotion, sunscreen and perfume, make sure you don’t wear your ring. These products may discolor your diamond or even etch colored stones. Apply your beauty products after your shower, so that you don’t have the ring on by accident.


Keep it Clean

Most jewelers will clean your ring for free, so make sure to take advantage of this service. Or use a gentle dish detergent and a toothbrush to scrub dirt away on the ring setting at home. To make your diamond sparkle, soak your ring in a small bowl of ammonia diluted with water and brush it gently with a toothbrush.

Four Mine offers a free lifetime warranty for all engagement rings and wedding bands, so we’ll clean, repair and restore your jewelry if it ever loses it’s original luster.



Just in case anything happens to your ring, make sure you invest in ring insurance. Most insurance companies can even include your ring under your homeowner’s insurance, but you can also insure it separately.
