A. The frequency with which an engagement ring should be cleaned depends largely on the person who wears it. Some people like to have their ring cleaned several times a year; for others, an annual cleaning is more than enough.
We recommend that you bring in your ring at least every 6-12 months for maintenance and cleaning. Because an engagement ring is worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it requires more care than other jewelry. Your engagement ring symbolizes a lifetime of love and commitment—keep it looking flawless by giving it the attention it deserves.
There are many different factors to consider when choosing a diamond—shape is one of them. Ultimately, the shape that is chosen for a diamond in an engagement ring should reflect your personal preferences. There are, however, some general facts about diamond shapes that are important to mention.
The shape of a diamond should complement the hand that wears it. Different diamond shapes might look better or worse on a particular finger type.
It is also important for your diamond to match its setting. If you choose your setting before your diamond, you want to make sure that the two fit together nicely.
“Karat” refers to the purity of gold. Pure gold is a soft, easily damageable metal. So when gold jewelry is made, gold is typically mixed with other metals to make it more sturdy. 24 karat gold is “pure gold”; that is, gold that has not been mixed with any other metals. Generally, higher karat gold jewelry is more expensive.
“Carat,” on the other hand, is a unit of weight that is commonly used with diamonds. You may have heard of the 4-C’s used to measure diamond quality—carat weight is one of these “C’s.” Carat weight is one of many factors that influence a diamond’s value.
Silver, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum—there are many options to choose from when deciding what type of precious metal you’d like for a piece of jewelry.
Personal preference is a big factor that should dictate what type of metal you’d like.
The skin tone of the wearer is also a factor when considering what type of precious metal jewelry you should buy. Cool skin tones tend to look best with white gold, platinum, and silver. Warm skin tones tend to look best with yellow gold or rose gold.
Price, of course, is another important factor. Gold is beautiful in fine jewelry but costs more than silver.
We hope that your jewelry lasts forever. However, you may lose the entire piece, lose some stones from it, or even break it. For these and other reasons, we highly recommend that you insure precious jewelry for loss, loss of precious stones, theft, and accidental damage.
