Avoid exposing your hands with harsh materials while wearing your ring. If you need to clean kitchen and other areas in the house using strong cleaning agents, remove the ring first as it could scratch the ring’s surface. You should also remove your ring if you are going to engage in heavy hand work or crafts or if you are going to do some gardening. It is also important to remove platinum engagement rings if you are going to lift or carry heavy items or if you are going to do heavy exercise or engage in sports activities.
Keep your engagement rings and other jewelleries in cool, dry and clean jewellery box, preferably with partitions. This will prevent the rings from scratching or bumping with other jewelleries. For light cleaning, use gentle detergent soap, warm water and soft toothbrush for light scrubbing. Do not use bleach or other harsh cleaning agents for its cleaning and maintenance.
Precious jewels need to be checked by a professional jeweller to ensure that the gemstones remain snug and tightly in place. Professional cleaning and check should be done once or twice in a year. You should also have the ring checked if it was subjected to impact. If platinum engagement rings need to be adjusted or resized, make sure that the jeweller uses platinum stock and not white gold in its readjustment, as this will cause dark marks on the ring especially on the soldered area.
