Care Levels

Caring for your engagement ring not only preserves its appearance and structure but also ensures it remains a cherished symbol of love for years to come. Depending on the materials and design of your ring, the level of care required can vary. Here, we break down the care needs into three levels: low, medium, and high.

Low Maintenance

Styles: Solitaire rings with fewer side diamonds
Characteristics: Highly durable materials and simpler designs that are less prone to damage
Care Tips:

  • Clean periodically with mild soap and warm water, using a soft brush.
  • Store in a dedicated compartment or pouch to avoid scratches.
  • A professional check-up every year is recommended to ensure the longevity of the setting.

Medium Maintenance

Styles: Rings with moderate detailing, such as halo designs or those with multiple side stones
Characteristics: Reasonably durable but more intricate designs require additional care
Care Tips:

  • Use a dish soap and warm water for regular cleaning.
  • Keep in a fabric-lined box to protect from scratches.
  • A semi-annual inspection is advisable to maintain the integrity of the stones and setting.

High Maintenance

Styles: Elaborate designs with intricate band detailing, floating diamond styles with single-prong settings
Characteristics: Sensitive to damage, especially in more elaborate and delicate designs
Care Tips:

  • Frequent cleaning is necessary to maintain appearance, and check for damage.
  • Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals and environments that could accelerate wear.
  • Consider quarterly professional maintenance to ensure all aspects of the ring are in top condition.
