We rank our engagement rings and fine jewelry's attention for care and maintenance on a scale of low, medium and high. This will help give you an idea of what ring styles will work best for your lifestyle, or help understand the maintenance required for the piece.
- Low - an easy to maintain style and that you should have checked at least once a year. These are typically pieces with no or very little side stones set into the piece.
- Medium - you should have this style checked at least once every 6 months. Typical medium care pieces include dainty styles, such as rings under 2mm or rings with french pave stones.
- High - These types of styles take more work to maintain and you should have this style checked at least once every 3 months. Pieces in this category can be 3D Pave pieces, eternity rings, and other pieces where there is very little metal to show off the stones.
When we say at least, this is the most minimal care. We encourage all of our clients to bring in their pieces in more frequently for free ring cleaning and checkups as often as you like. The cleaning and checkup usually take about 5 - 30 minutes depending on how much cleaning the piece requires. The more frequently you visit we are able to better help catch issues and keep your ring in good condition. Keep in mind wearing your jewelry every day is like wearing the same outfit every day. Your jewelry just like your clothes needs to be maintained and cleaned. We recommend taking the time weekly to clean your engagement ring or other everyday . jewelry with warm water and dish soap.
