Taking your clothes off? Take your ring off!
Our number 1 top tip – if you’re doing something that requires you to take your clothes off, take your ring off, too. Chances are, nobody’s interested in looking at your ring when you’re sleeping, swimming or sh…owering. When we sleep, your warm body gently heats the metal of your ring, and any sweat will cover your beautiful band with oils night after night. Add in the risk of your claw snagging on bedsheets, and it’s just not worth the fuss.
Make the right choice for your lifestyle
Our second tip – we recommend choosing a ring design that suits your lifestyle – it’s the best way to ensure longevity. If you’re a particularly active person, you don’t want a cut or claw that’s going to easily catch, so bear this in mind when selecting a ring.

Clean & respect your ring
Cleaning your ring is easier than you might think, and doesn’t necessarily require any specialist tools, fancy gadgets or expensive chemicals.
All you’ll need is a soft toothbrush and a little washing up liquid (we prefer Fairy) or high percentage alcohol (vodka or gin work great). You can even use surgical spirit if you’ve got that lying around (we’re not sure why you would, but you do you).
A regular, gentle scrub with your cleaning instruments of choice will work wonders in lifting any grease, biscuit crumbs and any other blemishes, bringing back your ring’s natural sparkle.
Chat with your ring
While we may be so crazy about our rings that we actually do talk to them, by chatting to your ring, what we really mean is give the gemstone a gentle tap on the top. If it answers you with a click, then it’s time to get your ring looked at. We find that rings look rubbish without their stone in, and you’d be devastated to find that your diamond has fallen out without you noticing, so don’t wait!
This is especially important if you’ve been wearing your ring while doing heavy work, like DIY or going to the gym. Lifting weights is the fastest way we’ve found to kill your ring and to pull your claw back, so make sure to take it off when working out.
