Keep Your Engagement Ring Sparkling!
The sparkle from your engagement ring will catch your eye at weird moments. When you reach for the top of the steering wheel, you might see a glimmer. When you’re grabbing your coffee cup and the light from the sunrise catches the stone, or when you stand under a spotlight in a store, and it starts to dance! The sparkle that comes from your ring is practically addictive; it’s so pretty, but after time, the shine from your ring can start to soften, and that’s no good!
Don’t worry; there’s nothing wrong with your stone. No matter what type of stone or gemstone you have, it will always have its natural splendor. What affects the sparkle the most is how dirty your ring is. That’s right; natural dirt and grime build up in your ring, and to keep your baby shinning, you need to keep it clean!
Keeping it clean isn’t hard; it just takes a little diligence. One way to keep it clean is to take it off whenever you’re applying hand lotion or creams. The creams can build up under the setting, which means light won’t be able to reflect through the bottom (which is what gives it it’s sparkle). Creams and lotions can also leave a film layer over top of your stone (as of course, the stone can’t absorb the moisturizer!), and that film will leave it looking dull. Whatever you do, don’t forget to put your ring back on after you put on your lotion! There is literally nothing worse than getting back to your desk at work or your table at a restaurant and realizing your forget your ring in the bathroom!
