At Simon West Fine Jewellery we have a lifetime ring cleaning service that you can use if needed. Although if you’re under a time constraint here are some of our top tips for cleaning your ring at home.
Clean Your Ring At Home:
If you have made your ring dirty or tarnished due to general cosmetics you can find in your bathroom, any at home product such as soap will help bring the ring back to life. We usually recommend creating a mixture of warm water and dishwashing soap and soaking the ring for 20-40 minutes in a safe place whilst gently brushing the stone with a soft toothbrush. Once it has soaked make sure to wash off the solution under warm running water.
Do Need To Clean Your Ring Often?
You can make your ring to look the absolute best if you aim to try and clean it once a week. Although if that’s too often for you, you should try to take your ring to your jeweller around twice a year.
What Products You Shouldn’t Use on Your Ring?
When a ring loses its sparkle it can be quite scary, although it may only be because it’s a ring that hasn’t been properly cared for. Simon West says that you never use a household cleaner such as chlorine, bleach and acetone. These shouldn’t be used for ring cleaning as they tend to be too harsh and can break down the metal in your ring.
Do you question whether you should insure your new engagement ring or not? Ring insurance can be a game changer if you lose of misplace your ring. That’s why ring insurance for some people is a must! If something were to happen to it you would want your precious rock back.
If you don’t know where to start on insuring your ring there are several options and types of insurance you can choose from.
Some combined home insurance policies or contents insurances will cover some sort of insurance or cover if the ring is lost, damaged or stolen within your home. However most insurance companies set 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. This will also usually not cover you for if you wear the ring away from home.
You can also have your engagement ring insured separately to your contents insurance. This is very doable with specialised insurance. Specialised insurance policies end to carry a higher level of cover than your usual contents insurance. Benefits include an agreed additional replacement, a value policy, free annual revaluation, worldwide cover, and repair and replacement at your preferred jewellers. This option is a very popular option for most people.
Should you apply the three month salary rule when buying an engagement ring?
The “Ring Salary Rule” first started in the 1930’s-40’s when times were much harder and money was a huge stress, as such a campaign was started to tell men how much they should spend on an engagement ring for their loved one, that being a one months salary at the time. The rule of thumb is, depending on your other spending habits the “three month salary rule” can be a good start when deciding how much to spend on a ring either as a range or a set price, however after tax this can break the bank for a lot of people. However you may already have a budget for the ring on your mind.
What’s the right amount to spend on an engagement ring?
The truth is there is not right amount! There’s no reason for a three month salary rule for an engagement ring. Instead, maybe look and focus for the actual ring not the price, and if it’s within the price range then buy the ring. For some people a give or take range for a ring is usually a better idea rather than a fixed amount incase the particular ring you like is slightly over and not feel like it’s too large a price.
