There maybe a hundred references about how to take care of your partner but what about your wedding ring?
That shiny and sparkly jewelry is the symbol of your success – finding the perfect guy you will spend the rest of your life with. But the same as how you work hard to keep your marriage altogether, how will you make your engagement ring shine brightly… forever.
Yours Truly did a little research on how to wear your wedding ring as beautiful as it is seen on your wedding album (Click here for more details about wedding albums). Here is a handy guide on taking care of your gorgeous love bond.
Take It Off
People around you might say that wedding rings should not be removed from your finger, however we think it is necessary to protect it from external factors like dust and acidic water. When you’re cleaning the house or doing the laundry, you don’t want your ring to be in close contact with harsh chemical substances like detergents and cleansers.
Bath soaps maybe harmful too, so you’re excused when you remove your ring while taking a shower. Extreme water temperatures may also damage your ring, especially while you’re enjoying the sauna or taking a dip at the pool. Experts say gold and silver rings are sensitive to the chemicals in spas and swimming pools.
Being organized is the key. While you have a portion in your cabinet neatly reserved for your handbags and scarves, your ring deserves a special place in your bedroom as well.
You can keep the original box from the purchase. Place the box in a dedicated area in your bedside which is of limited access to everyone in the family. Practice to always put your ring there before you go to the kitchen to clean or to the bathroom before you shower. Practice makes perfect, right? You’ll get used to it. 🙂
Know what your ring is made of
We’re sure you would love to know how much your ring costs but it’s not the only information that you should discover. You need to know what it is made of to determine which substances to avoid.
For anodized aluminum, niobium and titanium jewelry, for example, avoid scraping it against hard surfaces. Abrasives can remove the colored oxide layer.
For sterling silver jewelry, chemicals that must be avoided are chlorine, cosmetics, hair spray, and perfume. Jewelries made of Brass (an alloy made of copper and zinc) will naturally tarnish when exposed to Oxygen.
A beautiful marriage deserves a dazzling ring for both the husband and the wife. Wedding rings may have a little contribution to a long lasting relationship but we’re sure you would love a glaring reminder of your great love. 🙂
