Simon West halo engagement rings should be as looked after as possible. Here at Simon West, we offer a life time ring cleaning service available for you to use when needed. Although if you don’t feel like coming in and having a visit at our CBD showroom, here are some of our top tips for cleaning your ring at home.
Here’s How to Clean Your Beautiful Halo Engagement Ring:
Sometimes your ring can dirty or tarnished because of everyday cosmetics that you can find around the house or in the bathroom, any at home soap will keep your ring shining. A good idea is mixing some warm water and dishwashing soap, soaking the ring for somewhere around the 20-40 minutes mark. Once this is done gently brush the ring with a soft toothbrush and finish by running the ring under cold water but don’t forget to block the drain before you start!
How Often Should I Clean My Halo Ring.
If you want your ring to continue to sparkle you should aim to try and clean it at least once a week at home with some sort of ring cleaning product. However, if that seems like a long and intense process, you should bring it into your Jeweller to get quick check up on the status of your ring every six months and to get the ring cleaned professionally.
Please Don’t Use These Products on Your Special Ring:
Chlorine, bleach or acetone are all easily accessible household products that you should NEVER use on any type of diamond or stone due to the harsh chemicals that can and will breakdown the metals in your band and ring which is a site nobody wants to see. When a ring loses its sparkle it can be quite frightening and can happen quite quickly, although it may only be because it’s a ring that hasn’t been properly cared for, so there is no need to stress! Bring the ring into Simon West Fine Jewellers and we will do our best to advise you with the next steps!
Ring insurance is quite a topical choice amongst couples, however, insurance for you halo ring can be a huge lifesaver if you misplace your ring.
There a few options that you can choose from.
Option 1: Contents Insurance
Many home and contents insurance policies will cover some sort of ring cover if the ring is lost, damaged or stolen within your house. Although many people steer away from this option as most insurance companies have a limit as to the amount you can claim back on the ring. Ie if you lost your ring and it cost $8,500 you may only get $1500 back, although this may be the most convenient option.
Option 2: Specialised Insurance
You can also have your single or double halo engagement ring insured separately to your contents insurance. This is very easy to do with specialised insurance. Specialised insurance policies tend to carry a higher level of cover. Benefits include an agreed additional replacement, a value policy, free annual revaluation, worldwide cover, and repair and replacement at your preferred jewellers.
What is the three month salary rule?
The “Three Month Salary Rule” first started in the early 1900’s and the idea was to encourage men to spend 1 months worth of their salary on a ring, however now it is around 3 months.
How much should you spend on the engagement ring?
There is honestly no special or particular amount! For some the 3 month salary rule for an engagement ring is the fitting amount, for others it may be less or more. A better idea may be to look and focus for the actual ring not the price, and if it’s within the price range then buy the ring.
