With the sudden outbreak of COVID-19, keep reading for our best ring cleaning tips.
The global spread of COVID-19 has a number of people making changes to their daily habits, with many increasingly using hand sanitizer to minimize the risk of exposure. While hand sanitizer may do a good job protecting you, it may be affecting something else – your engagement ring. Scroll down for our best ring cleaning tips to keep your sparkler safe and COVID-free!
1. Cleaning Agents
Excessive exposure to cleaning agents can make the finish on white gold wear a little faster. This won’t cause immediate damage. However, contact with cleaning agents like chlorine, bleach and antibacterial soap can break down the brilliance of the metals over time. So keep cleaning agents away from white gold sparklers to keep them dazzling to the max:
White Gold Pavé Rope Engagement Ring
White Gold Vintage Infinity Engagement Ring
White Gold Diamond Three-Stone Ring
2. Clean Smart, Not Hard
We’re not suggesting that you stop using hand sanitizer. Heath and hygiene come before bling! However, there are ways to stay clean and protect your precious sparkler. Avoid rubbing hand sanitizer or harsh cleaning products directly onto your ring. Instead, remove your ring, sanitize, dry your hands, then put one of these back on:
Rose Gold Pavé Adorned Engagement Ring
Yellow Gold Graduated Halo Engagement Ring
3. Bling Care
You should ideally clean your ring once a week. The best way is by soaking it in warm water and dish-washing soap. This will allow you to keep practicing good hygiene habits and avoid putting your ring in jeopardy. Soak up one of these white, rose and yellow gold options:
White Gold Sleek Accent Engagement Ring
Rose Gold Shared Prong Marquise Side Stone Ring
Yellow Gold Bow-Tie Channel Set Ring
4. Gloves On
If you can’t remove your ring for any reason or don’t want to use hand sanitizer, don’t fret! We recommend that you wear a pair of gloves when doing any household cleaning.
