Ways You Could Be Putting Your Ring At Risk

Ways You Could Be Putting Your Ring At Risk

Rings are top pieces of jewelry that give your fingers a polished look you didn't even know they needed. In other cases, rings can visually represent something special shared between couples, friends, or family. In this case, you'd want this ring to last as long as possible or even for a lifetime. The only way this can happen is by caring for it.  Keep reading to learn more about this. 


By Swimming

Putting your ring in water all the time is one of the fastest ways to damage your ring. If the ring is non-tarnish, then water might not damage it. However, swimming with the ring still has its risks. The ring could get lost in the pool, and getting it out might be difficult. It becomes even more complicated if the pool is drained without knowing your ring is there. 


As you already know, rings don't mix well with harsh chemicals. Most cleaning agents contain these harsh chemicals that could lead to chemical erosion. They also leave the ring looking cloudy. So, before you start cleaning, always remember to remove your ring. If you're afraid of losing your ring that way, you can always wear gloves to protect your ring.


Working Out

Understandably, you want to wear your ring everywhere, especially if it means something special. However, the gym isn't one of those places. Wearing your ring at the gym exposes it to the risk of wear and tear due to strenuous activity. Instead of wearing your ring at the gym, you could purchase a silicone ring that can survive harsh conditions.

Labor-Intensive Work

It's almost impossible not to use your hands to do labor-intensive work, especially if that's the field you work in. However, you can still protect your ring by wearing gloves or using it as a pendant for your necklace. That way, you don't have to worry about losing it.

Personal Grooming

I'm sure you've heard people emphasize the dangers of bathing with your ring. It's not necessarily the water that damages it but also the chemicals from your soap, shampoo, and creams. Although it may be convenient to keep your ring on at this point, it's best to remove it when doing personal grooming.

How to Protect Your Jewelry in the Summer

How to Protect Your Jewelry in the Summer

As summer peaks, it's the perfect opportunity to embrace the great outdoors and bask in the glorious weather. 

Summer brings numerous benefits, from active social life to an uplifted mood, particularly during summer vacations. However, one aspect can suffer during this season: your jewelry.

When spending time outdoors during the summer, it is advisable to wear sunscreen and bug spray for protection. However, these products can leave residue on your jewelry, causing it to lose its shine. 

Removing your jewelry before applying sunscreen or bug spray is recommended to avoid frequent cleaning. This simple precaution can prevent the buildup of irritating substances on your jewelry and keep it looking vibrant.

However, there are some other ways as well that you can apply to protect your jewelry in the summer. This article will summarize all these methods to protect your summer jewelry. 

Tips to Protect Your Jewelry in Summers 

Summer is beautiful weather, but it can damage our jewelry when exposed to the outdoors. There are some tips to protect your jewelry from any damage during summer. These tips are: 

Avoid Wearing it in Pool, Lake, or Beach 

If your family or friends are planning water adventures, it's a perfect idea in summer. But leave your jewelry at home. 

The chlorine in the pool can discolor or damage your precious jewelry. It can also remove the polish of some gemstones, such as diamonds. Furthermore, salty water and sand on the beach can damage your precious jewelry. 

Prevent Sunscreen Buildup 

Wearing sunscreen to protect your skin from sunburn or harmful rays is good. However, sunscreen or even bug spray can cause an irritating buildup on your jewelry. 

This buildup will make your necklace or precious bracelets dim and dull. Make sure to take your jewelry off while applying sunscreen or bug spray. 

Organize While Travelling. 

It is vital to organize your jewelry properly. Place your rings, bracelets, and other precious jewelry separately. Keep them in a bag or airtight box. This will prevent them from getting direct sunlight during summer and prevent them from getting tangled or scratched.
