Durability and cleaning of your ring

Keep your ring always shine

Durability

As we all know Diamonds are the hardest material known,
Sapphire is number two, right after the diamond. It is possible to scratch a sapphire only with a diamond, Gold is soft but can easily be polished back to look new if it loses the shining.All our rings are suitable for daily wearing, the problem will be the tiny diamonds of sapphires. If the ring will get a sharp blow even on your finger the micro prongs holding the diamonds can be loosened and a diamonds can fall. You have to check the ring from time to time (better with some magnification) to see that no diamond got loosened. Take the ring once or twice a year to a jeweler for professional cleaning and tightening the prongs if necessary.

Cleaning

The Sapphire and Diamonds will not scratch, But both are a magnet to dirt and oil. To keep it shining, Wash it once a week or two (depends on your environment) with warm water and dish soap, leave it in the soapy warm water for 20-30 min, then clean it with a soft toothbrush, wash with clean water and leave it to dry you will see the shine only after it drys. The stones will shine as it was on day one, If you feel the stones are not totally clean you can add little Ammonia to the solution.
