One of the most important aspects of maintaining the beauty of a piece of jewelry over its lifetime is the amount of care put into its preservation. Depending on the material used to craft your ring, it is a good idea to not wear it while performing any strenuous work - including exercising, doing dishes, working on your home or any other heavy labor; blows to the ring may bend its prongs, the ring itself and could even chip your diamond. We also suggest removing your ring to sleep and shower. You should have a certain spot in your home where you put your ring anytime you take it off, to ensure you don't lose track of it. We suggest a dish, a jewelry box, a ring holder, or your Bomi engagement ring box.
Although diamond is known as the hardest material on earth, it still runs the risk of being chipped or broken: a hard blow to the girdle (its edge) or culet (the point) may damage it. Aside from this, however, diamond is essentially indestructible. Additionally, its not a good idea to wear your ring while sleeping - due to the prongs potentially catching on the mattress fibers and either tearing the mattress or pulling a prong off.
To ensure the longevity of your jewels, it's best to store it in a jewelry box or an enclosed area where there are no other metals, as this could scratch your item or wear down the metal and its prongs.
For even more protection, try this surefire method of keeping your ring looking its best: Grab a toothbrush and some dish soap, mixing it in a small bowl filled with hot (but not boiling) water. Following this, take your ring and drop it in the bowl, letting it soak for about ten minutes. After that, take the ring out with tongs - as the water will be very hot - and gently brush it until all dirt has been removed. Finally, submerge the ring back into the bowl and rinse off the soap with cold water.
If you'd like your ring professionally cleaned and checked for damage, stop by Bomi any time, and our staff will clean your ring while you wait - for no charge!
