Purchasing a new tungsten or ceramic ring is exciting. Whether it is for an engagement band, anniversary ring or a promise ring you are just waiting for the dramatic moment of opening the gift box and finding that breathtaking ring. But one crucial thing to consider when purchasing or receiving a tungsten or ceramic ring is how you care for it.
No matter which of the two types of rings you have there will be some maintenance required. Without proper cleaning and storing your ring won't have the same look as it once did.
Thankfully, with proper care, your tungsten or ceramic ring will look great for many years to come. Follow this guide to caring for your ring and you can care for your beloved symbol of love with confidence.
Because you wear tungsten and ceramic rings on your hand, they come in contact with everything you touch as well. So, while these rings are durable and resilient, they can still collect household germs or be caked in hand lotion. And when you hit your hand on another object or firmly grasp rough materials, tungsten and ceramic rings get the full force as well.
This is why regular cleaning of your ring is a must. Of course, dirt and physical forces can damage the appearance of your jewelry. Additionally, just as you regularly wash your hands to get rid of germs, you want to ensure that your ceramic and tungsten rings aren't a breeding ground for unwelcome bacteria.
Here are some signs that your tungsten or ceramic ring is due for a cleaning:
If you wear your ceramic or tungsten ring every day, you'll need to clean it more frequently than those who leave it stored away. That's because the ring comes in contact with dirt, germs and bacteria regularly. However, regular cleaning is recommended even for jewelry stored away, as any dust or dirt from the air can still get on the ring.
Luckily, they are very simple to clean. Here's what you'll need:
And here's a simple guide to cleaning your jewelry:
Once it's clean enough to your liking, rinse it off, dry it with a dry cloth, and it's ready to go.
Often, a good cleaning is enough to make your tungsten or ceramic ring to shine. But if soap and water aren't doing the trick, it's time for polish. While tungsten and ceramic rings are strong materials, this doesn't mean they are invincible to scratches. Remember, these rings are scratch resistant, not scratch proof! Which means, they can scratch but not easily.
If you've noticed some minor scratches to your ceramic or tungsten ring, at-home polishing could help somewhat. First, gather these supplies:
Spread out some of the polishing compound on the cloth. Then take the cloth and rub it around the ring using a little pressure. As you polish continue applying the pressure until the portion of the ring is as clean as you can get it. Now move on to the next area.
Use a towel to remove the used paste and inspect the area. If the area isn't clean to your standards, reapply the compound and continue polishing. These materials are extremely hard material so they might take some added pressure. Also, a mark on them might be too deep for it to be removed.
Polishing is ideal when you see more than just dirt on your ring. For example, tiny scratches or marks from handling are good causes for polishing.
For those who use their ceramic or tungsten rings as wedding rings, you may find yourself always wearing this jewelry. There seems no need to have a proper storing place when it's always on your finger.
However, having adequate storage solutions is essential if you have a tungsten or ceramic ring that often finds itself in a drawer or on a counter waiting for its next use.
We often think that damage occurs to our jewelry in our everyday life when we're wearing it. And, of course, that's often the case. Whether we handle chemicals that are too harsh on the jewelry or hit it again another material that cause scratches or marks, there are many ways that you can harm even the strongest tungsten rings.
But even when sitting unused in our bedrooms or bathrooms rings should be protected. Of course, jewelry boxes are the classic solution. This is because these boxes safeguard any type of jewelry from outside factors, such as, the sun, room temperature, low humidity, contact and rubbing against other materials and so on. At Steven G Designs we recommend storing your ring in the gift box we provide when you receive your ring.
Not sure if your current storage solution is enough to keep your jewelry safe? Here's what you need to know for all types of jewelry in general (not specifically tungsten and ceramic rings):
Whether your tungsten or ceramic ring marks an engagement, wedding, a promise, or is just a beautiful addition to your jewelry collection, you want it to look its best. That's why proper care is so essential to avoid problems with your rings.
Thankfully, with proper cleaning, polishing, and storage, your ceramic and tungsten rings will shine long after you receive them.
Keep our tips in mind for storing, polishing, and cleaning, and you'll prolong the life of your jewelry by decades.
