3 Tips To Keep Your Engagement Ring Safe

Congratulations — you're engaged! Now that you have that gorgeous sparkler on your hand, you may be wondering how to proceed with your everyday life without ruining or losing that ring. Since replacement rings can be expensive, it is important to do everything you can to keep your ring safe. Here are three tips to keep your engagement ring safe.

1. Be Careful On Social Media

If Kim Kardashian has taught us anything, it is about the importance of being careful what you flaunt online. After her 2016 burglary in Paris that robbed her of her 20-carat diamond ring, she started being more subtle on social media about her pricy ensembles, jewelry included. 

While this may be an extreme example of what could happen if you talk about your jewelry and possessions online, it is important to remember that someone is always watching. Avoid talking about your new ring extensively on social media, and make your posts private or only visible for a few select friends and family members. 

2. Create A Home For Your Ring

Another common problem that many people have to deal with is misplacing their new engagement rings. To prevent losses, create a home for your ring whenever it isn't on your finger. Suitable places could include jewelry boxes, side-table drawers, or even your zip-close wallet. 

By always having your ring either on your finger or in its new home, you can keep track of that valuable piece of jewelry, preventing emergencies that result in panic. After you create a home for your new ring, be mindful of always putting it in either place and avoid activities that wouldn't allow you to keep your ring safe.

3. Avoid Chlorine

Chlorine can actually dissolve gold molecules, and the thinner parts of your ring, such as the prongs, are especially vulnerable. Never wear your wedding ring swimming in a pool or while lounging in a spa. When you clean with bleach-based products, put your ring in its specially designated space for safekeeping.

When you get engaged and you have a gorgeous ring in hand, don't take any chances with that special ring. By doing what you can to keep it safe, you can prevent losses, saving you and your fiancé a lot of time, money, and stress. Remember, if you do run into problems with your new engagement ring, turn to a jeweler for help. By working with a team of professionals, you can prevent problems.
