One of the benefits of choosing a platinum wedding ring is that it is hard wearing and more durable than traditional yellow gold. That being said, you will still need to take care of your wedding ring to ensure that it keeps on shining like the first day that you put it on. There are things that you can do in your everyday life to help your ring stay gleaming, and there are also ways that you can gently clean your platinum wedding rings to get them looking pristine again.
The best place to start with your wedding ring is to make sure that you take good care of it and limit the wear and tear to which it is exposed. There are certain activities that you should take your ring off for to make sure that it stays shining as these can affect the colour and shine of your wedding band. You should avoid swimming in the ocean, and when applying creams and lotions remove your ring and put it back on once your hands are clean. When having a bath or shower, you should also take off your ring, and also remove it when you are participating in physical exercise or sport.
If you are one of the many people that have selected from the huge range of platinum diamond wedding rings, then you will also need to take care of the settings that keep the diamonds secure. It is worth your time to visit a reputable jewellery company now and then, just to have them check the settings for signs of damage, or wear and tear.
On occasion, you will need to have your wedding ring cleaned, and you can either do this yourself or take your ring to a jewellery shop to be cleaned. You can use specialised jewellery cleaner or even a mild detergent and warm water, but if you have precious stones such as diamonds, be careful not to use something that will damage them. If you regularly clean your wedding ring with some warm soapy water, your ring should remain in excellent condition. If your ring has not been cleaned for some time and is rather dirty, you may need to give it a gentle scrub with a soft brush and remove all of the dirt and grease.
You also have the option of taking your jewellery to a shop and have them clean it professionally, usually at an affordable price. One of the benefits of using a service such as this is that they have all of the cleaning fluids and tools to give your ring a thorough clean while making sure not to damage it in the process. A professional jewellery cleaning service will have your platinum wedding ring looking as good as it did on the day that you put it on for the first time.
