To ensure that your rings stay bright and shiny for years to come, here are a few simple tips from our bridal jewelry professionals at Long Jewelers.

Tip #1: Take Off Your Ring

As hard as it may seem to take off your bridal rings, especially in those first few years of blissful marriage, it is important to remove them during activities that may be harmful. For example, sports or working out in the gym may cause damage to the rings’ setting or hurt other players. Other activities that might cause your ring harm include gardening or household cleaning which may end up getting your ring scratched, chipped, or even lost.

In any of the above events, we recommend you take off your rings and place them somewhere secure until you have completed your activity.

Tip #2: Clean Your Ring

To make sure your rings keep their proposal and wedding day gleam, find a way to regularly clean them at home. Due to everyday wear your ring will inevitably accumulate dirt and oils, finding a feasible way to clean your rings at home ensures that the dirt and oil does not become a more serious issue.

An easy method of cleaning your rings at home is to add dish soap into a small dish with lukewarm water and simply let your bridal rings soak in the water for a few minutes. After about 5-10 minutes, you may use your fingers or a soft brush to clean out any remaining dirt.

Tip #3: Bring Your Ring to Long Jewelers!

Finally, to maintain the health and integrity of your bridal rings, our bridal experts recommend regular check-ups by jewelry professionals every six months or yearly. Just like your own doctor visits, regular inspections and cleanings from professionals using the latest in jewelry technologies allows for a complete diagnosis including any hard-to-see potential problems.

At Long Jewelers we are pleased to have four full-time goldsmiths on premise and a master watch maker for comprehensive jewelry services.
