FAQs about Handmade Rings

How do I choose the right engagement ring?

When it comes to choosing your promise of love, there are some factors to take into account. First of all, you should think about your beloved’s style. For instance, if she likes wearing silver, you should definitely buy a white gold or platinum engagement ring. Another thing to consider is definitely the gemstone. Don’t think, for a second, that diamonds are the only possibility. It all depends on your fiancée’s personality.

Can I wear handmade rings all the time?

The short answer is no because there are some things to consider before you choose a handmade ring on our jewelry store. Your hands come in contact with plenty of surfaces and substances every day, which can potentially harm your engagement ring. According to Marina Peredo, M.D., F.A.A.D, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and founder of Marina I. Peredo, M.D., P.C. Dermatology and Spatique Medical Spa in Smithtown, N.Y., continuously wearing jewelry really isn't a big deal -- as long as you clean it regularly and the materials don't irritate your skin. "You can potentially damage your jewelry by constantly wearing it, but there are no major health risks to wearing jewelry every day, which includes sleeping and showering," she says. Although "metals that are added to gold and silver such as nickel can be extremely irritating to the skin," says Dr. Peredo. We suggest removing your jewelry for sleeping to avoid any inconvenience.

What is the correct order to wear your engagement rings?

It is quite simple: when engaged, wear your engagement ring on the 4th finger of your left hand. When married, the wedding ring should go first so it is closer to the heart, followed by the engagement ring. You can also choose to wear only one of both.

Should I sleep with my rings on?

While sleeping isn't the most dangerous activity for your ring, better safe than sorry. Sleeping with your engagement ring includes these risks: Difficulty removing your ring in the morning due to swelling overnight. Hitting the ring just right on your bed or nightstand and cracking it.

Is hand sanitizer bad for handmade rings?

The short answer is yes. Be careful before you buy a handmade ring because repeated use of hand sanitizer can do two harmful things to it. Frequent use of cleaning products such as rubbing alcohol, bleach, chlorine, detergents and hand soap will slowly wear down the brilliance of your ring. We suggest avoiding contact with any harmful chemical and removing the ring to wash your hands, swimming or showering.

How to care for handmade rings?

Store in a clean, dry place. We suggest handmade rings should only be put on after washing/ applying any makeup, hair spray, gels, lotions or perfume. Keep away from extreme temperatures and over-exposure to direct sunlight. Use a gentle jewelry cleaner or a very mild soap and water solution to clean your beaded jewelry. Use a soft toothbrush, special jewelry brush or soft cloth to clean silver. Try not to wear your rings while swimming, showering, hand washing and sanitizing.

What do professional jewelers use to clean handmade rings?

Jewelers use ultrasonic cleaners with high frequency sound waves and chemicals, which create bubbles that latch on to the dirt on the jewelry. The high frequency sound waves pull the dirt away from the stone and bring them up to the surface.

Can I use toothpaste to clean handmade rings?

Toothpaste can damage your diamonds, gemstones, gold and silver. Toothpaste is abrasive and has a hardness of around 3/4 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. It is best to not use your toothpaste to clean your rings.
