When to Take Off Your Engagement Ring

Once your fiancé puts that engagement ring on your finger, chances are you neverwant to take it off. We totally get it. However, if you want your bling to continue shining bright for a really long time, it’s important not to wear it while you’re busy doing these seven things.

Working Out

If you rock your ring while participating in certain activities that put pressure on these metals, you risk changing their shape. If the shape of a ring is bent enough, you then risk bending the claws that hold the diamond and your diamond falling out.

Moisturizing

Lotions and moisturizers may be great for your skin, but not so much for your ring, as excess buildup can diminish the brilliance and dull your stone over time. To protect your rock and ensure a cloudy layer of film doesn’t form on it, wait until your hands have completely dried before slipping your bling back on.

Swimming

Never, ever, ever wear your expensive jewelry in the ocean or in the pool. For one, cold water “shrinks” your fingers, making it that much easier for an already loose engagement ring to disappear during a swim. So that means the ocean should be off-limits for engagement rings.

As for the pool, chlorine can damage and discolor the mounting of your ring and your platinum, gold, or white gold wedding band.
