Expert Advice For Caring For Your Engagement Ring

Jennifer Gandia from Greenwich Jewelers in New York City, a leading fine jewelry retailer, offers some of the best advice for one of the most-asked questions from brides-to-be regarding the proper care of their new engagement ring: 

At Greenwich Jewelers, we advise women to remove their engagement ring before showering. Hard water, soaps, lotions, and other products can dull the sparkle of your gems.

It’s important for women to find a routine that works for them. For example, place a small ring box in your bathroom where you store the ring during your shower, or have a consistent place you store it every night and wait until after you’ve showered and applied lotion every morning to put the ring back on your finger.

In addition, we tell our customers to store their ring safely while exercising. Lifting weights or putting pressure on the ring can wear it down over time.

To clean your  designer engagement ring we recommend purchasing jewelry cleaner that is made specifically for the diamonds and gems in your ring. Certain porous gemstones, such as emeralds or pearls, need a specific type of jewelry cleaner. Your engagement ring is a valuable, lifelong investment, you should treat it as one.

It’s important to get your ring checked on an annual basis. Greenwich Jewelers, as most fine jewelry stores do, offers yearly servicing to check and tighten all diamonds and gemstones in the setting, and clean, polish and re-plate the ring as needed.

A final step in the care of your diamond engagement ring is to purchase insurance. We remind our customers that they want to insure the replacement of her engagement ring in case of loss or damage.

4 Trends for the 2015 Engagement (Holiday) Season

Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day we see an increase in engagements. We believe this season brings family and friends together, so what better time to celebrate a new engagement? And, it gives you time to plan for a summer wedding!

This year, we’ve been noticing an increase in a few bridal trends that we wanted to share:

1. Yellow gold. This metal hearkens back to a more elegant and romantic time and its popularity continues to grow. Gold is a precious metal that is strong and timeless.

2. Two Tone. For those who are not sure about saying yes to a yellow gold engagement ring, we’ve seen an increase in two-tone bridal jewelry. This option allows you to have a touch of yellow gold, but maintain the presence of a white metal. Two-tone diamond rings also provide many brides the confidence to mix golds and not feel like they have to commit to a watch, earrings, necklace and bracelets in the same tone.

3. Halo free. We don’t believe diamond halos will ever be out of style, but we are seeing more and more brides choosing an engagement ring without a halo. In an effort to be different and stand-out from their friends they are breaking away from what was so popular for so long.

4. Multi-stones. Solitaires and single-stone rings with diamond halos and diamond shanks will always be classic. But this year we are seeing more multi-stone rings being selected than we have in some time. Couples preparing for marriage appreciate the symbolism of past, present and future, or you and me, in engagement rings featuring two or three stones.

Regardless of the ring you choose, remember that this is one piece of jewelry you are wearing every day, forever. Make sure this special piece represents your style and reflects what you love.

And for guys getting started on the process of purchasing a ring, our friends at The Plunge offer some great tips for shopping and selecting the perfect diamond.
