Are you worried that everyday wear and tear is too much on your wedding ring?
As you go throughout your day, your hand brushes on clothing, gets washed with soap and water, and faces the damaging effects of skin oils. Not to mention when you take your ring off to conserve it and risk loss or theft. A wedding ring is one of the biggest and first investments a married couple makes. Don't you think it deserves better care?
Myth: Diamonds Cannot Chip
Although diamonds are known for being the strongest material on Earth (myth debunked here), they can, and frequently, chip. Once a diamond is chipped, it's value plummets and the only option is an expensive fix.
Myth: Diamonds will Always Look Clear and Sparkly
Cleaning products, skin oils, lotion, and soap are all things women come in contact with daily, and also happen to be the most damaging to diamonds. When exposed to any of these things over time, diamonds become discolored, dull, and cloudy. Leaving a once sparkly, prized possession, dull and lifeless.
Myth: Stones Are Safe in Their Setting
Do you have insurance on your ring or the cash to shell out for a new diamond? Getting a wedding ring serviced every six months is the only way to prevent weak prongs breaking, causing the diamond to fall out of it's setting.
Myth: Take Your Ring Off to Put On Lotion
Slipping a wedding ring off to wash hands, do the dishes, or put lotion on, and a few hours later you realize you have no idea where it is. Sound familiar to anyone? Rings are most vulnerable to loss and theft when they are taken off and not kept in a safe place.
There Has to be a Better Solution...
You love your wedding ring, so treat it better. Instead of making it vulnerable, save it for special occasions. A diamond is not meant to be worn every day. Purchase a simulated diamond that is a replica of your original wedding ring, or your dream ring.
