Proper Maintenance And Deep Cleaning
You should be checking your rings for loose stones, worn prongs, and other repair problems on a regular basis. An annual examination by a jeweler, as well as a basic polish and refurbishment, may maintain rings in top shape for long-term use.
Lotion, beauty products, cleaning supplies, and any other products that get on your hands can start building up under and around the diamonds with time. Use a gentle toothbrush and mild soap blended with warm water to thoroughly clean your jewelry.
Dish soap is effective because it breaks up fatty deposits that cause diamonds to appear hazy or dull. Soak your ring for 10-20 minutes, if necessary, then carefully clean it with a toothbrush under hot running water. Make sure to clean under the diamond, as this is where buildups can form.
Take Insurance For Your Lab-Grown Diamond
To protect against the unexpected, it is recommended to take insurance for your lab-grown diamond engagement ring. Jewelry insurance can cover you in the event of a ring loss, a diamond loss, theft, or damage, among other things. While jewelry insurance can be added as a rider to a homeowner’s policy, it is generally inadequate for claims other than loss or theft, and jewelry-specific insurance can give more comprehensive coverage for any potential issues.
