Tiny particles you wouldn’t even notice can cause deep scratches in gold, silver, and platinum jewelry that are difficult and expensive to fix.
The same goes for gemstones, too. You’ve probably heard the common myth that nothing can scratch a diamond, but it’s not true.
Diamonds are the hardest surfaces on earth, but the “unscratchable” myth overlooks more important factors, like speed and force.
If you accidentally scratch your ring against a concrete wall, or a speck of rock from a neighbor’s lawnmower nicks your diamond, it can cause irreparable damage.
(It’s the same physics principle that explains why soft-metal bullets can shatter concrete and dent steel.)
Here’s a good rule of thumb: if you wouldn’t carry your smartphone around in your hand while doing an activity, it’s probably not a great idea to bring your fine jewelry along, either.
So, what to do about it?
There you have it—the four secrets your jeweler didn’t tell you before buying your ring.
Thankfully, there’s one insider tip that can help protect your ring for years to come:
Get an affordable replacement.
That’s right. Having a backup ring is the best of both worlds.
Looking to dress up, safe from theft and damage? Put on your “real” ring.
When you’re traveling, working, or just want to protect your investment, swap it out with an affordable replacement.
If you buy a quality backup ring, you’re still wearing a hypoallergenic, beautiful ring at a fraction of the price (under $100, instead of $1,000 or more).
You’ll look stunning at the beach or pool, doing your favorite hobbies, and during the vacation of a lifetime. But you can rest easy because your precious ring is safe.
It’s a stress-free way to look amazing.
