I’ll admit it. Even after being engaged for over a year, I still catch myself entranced by the sparkler on my left hand. I always get a little giddy when the “clean your ring” reminder pops up on my calendar. Nothing quite compares to the way light dances and glistens off of a freshly-cleaned diamond.
Want to keep that shine a little longer? Here are a few tips to keeping your sparkler bright:
1. Hitting the gym? Leave the bling at home. While I’m all for “sweating for the wedding,” holding on to weights or any sort of impact can damage your ring. Plus the sweat will dull its sparkle!
2. Get fun ring holders. There are many daily activities that contribute to the buildup of grime: showering, getting ready, dishes, housework, sleeping, etc. Place a few fun ring holders around your place to remind you to take off that ring!
3. Home cleaning. Keep that ring sparkly in between visits to the jeweler. Rinse the ring under warm water and gently brush it with an extra-soft toothbrush. Finish by drying it with a lint-free cloth.
