Men’s Wedding and Eternity Rings
There are more choices for men’s wedding rings than ever before. Many men choose a simple gold band because they are not aware of the options that are available to them now. Choosing the right style is as important as it is for a women’s wedding ring. It is something you will wear every day, and should reflect your personality. Beyond choosing between the standard metals of yellow gold, white gold, and platinum, there are also titanium, CobaltchromeTM, and even ceramic rings. Bands can have mixed metals, decorative grooving, and embedded diamonds. Width is important with men’s rings, too. A man with very large hands will need a much wider band than a man with smaller hands. With all of the new styles, there is nothing boring about men’s wedding bands anymore.The cut and symmetry are also important. This refers to the width of the diamond in relation to the depth and the percentage of surface the table (the flat facet on the top of the stone) has in relation to this. If these relationships are not optimal the fire and brilliance of the diamond are affected which in turn influences the diamond’s final grading. Your diamond holds a lifetime of dreams. So of course you’ll want it to always radiate as brilliantly as the first day you slip it on. Fortunately, the task of caring for your diamond is quite simple. We would like to share some information on taking care of your jewellery and protection against damage.

Cleaning Your Diamond Jewelry
Depending on the setting you choose, you can soak your diamond engagement and/or wedding rings for up to 30 minutes in a solution of dishwashing liquid and water. This is best suited to prong and cathedral settings. In pave and basket settings, however, soaking the rings can increase the likelihood of the gems coming loose. Be mindful of this when you decide to soak any jewelry piece use mild dish soap in warm water and soak your jewelry for a few minutes. Using a soft cloth or cotton swab, gently scrub the metal (gold, platinum, silver) and then rinse. Repeat the process if necessary, but always proceed with caution when it comes to soaking jewelry.
For extra shine, you can soak diamonds in window cleaner afterwards. Because glass cleaner contains some harsh chemicals, do not soak for more than a minute at a time, and do not use this process at all with rhodium. To ensure that all of the glass cleaner is rinsed off, use the same mild dish soap solution. Dip your ring into the solution, rinse it with warm water, and then dry it completely.
You can use toothpicks to remove dirt that is lodged in between the prongs and the diamonds, but be extra careful not to scratch the metal or move the positioning of a prong. If fibers from cloth get stuck in the setting, gently use tweezers to remove them. Again, be careful of the metal. Even though diamonds can only be scratched by other diamonds, the precious metals into which they are set can be scratched more easily.
Ionic cleaners can be used on most diamond jewelry. If your engagement ring is set with gemstones other than diamonds, consider other cleaning methods, as some gemstones are adversely affected by the electrical current in the ionic cleaning process.
When storing your diamond jewelry, be sure to keep it separate from other jewelry. Remember that diamonds can not only scratch any other jewelry you have, but can scratch each other as well. Make sure that two diamond pieces are not being stored in such a way that they touch each other.
