Your titanium wedding ring is more than just a piece of jewelry. It’s a symbol of love and commitment to your partner. As such, it’s essential to keep it safe and well-maintained. If you’re worried about losing your precious ring or interested in finding ways to keep it safe, this article is for you. Here, we’ll discuss six crucial tips for ensuring the safety of your titanium wedding ring, from making sure it fits correctly to the importance of insurance and more.
1. Make Sure Your Titanium Ring Fits Correctly
A properly fitting ring is essential for keeping it safe. A ring that is too loose can slip off your finger without you even noticing, while a band that is too tight can cause discomfort and circulation problems. For this reason, we highly recommend ordering Avant-Garde Jewelry’s Perfect Fit Every Time™ when placing your order.
The Perfect Fit Every Time™ is a convenient and accurate way to determine your ring size, allowing you to order your ring with confidence. If your ring doesn’t fit right upon receiving it, you will have 14 days to examine your order. If you ordered a titanium ring without using our free sizing set, a 25% – 35% restocking fee will apply. Our Titanium rings are made specifically to order, allowing us to offer our customers a choice of different widths, Ti grades, inlays, stones, etc. So it is vital to start with the proper size.
2. Insure Your Titanium Ring
Even with the best precautions, accidents can still happen. That’s why it’s wise to insure your titanium wedding ring. Many home insurance policies offer coverage for valuable items like jewelry. Speak with your insurance agent about your options and make sure you have adequate coverage in case of loss, theft, or damage. This way, if anything unfortunate happens, you can replace or repair your ring without breaking the bank.
3. Have Your Titanium Ring Cleaned and Inspected
Regular cleaning and inspection are essential for maintaining your ring’s appearance and integrity. While titanium is a strong material, it can still accumulate dirt and grime over time. Use a soft toothbrush, mild soap, and warm water to clean your ring. Then, gently scrub the ring, paying attention to any grooves or engravings.
At Avant-Garde Jewelry, we recommend having your ring cleaned and inspected at least once a year or more frequently if you notice any issues. This will help you catch any potential problems early, such as loose stones or scratches, and prevent further damage. We provide a free re-polishing service. You can return the ring to us for refinishing if the ring(s) should become scratched. This service is available twice a year for as long as you own the ring(s).
4. Safe Storage Habits
When you’re not wearing your titanium wedding ring, it’s essential to store it safely. A secure jewelry box or a small, soft pouch is ideal for protecting your ring from scratches or other damage. Additionally, if you’re traveling, make sure to keep your ring in a safe place, such as a hotel safe or a locked suitcase. Good storage habits will help ensure your ring stays safe and sound, even when not worn.
5. If You’re Ever Unsure, Don’t Wear Your Titanium Ring
There may be times when you’re unsure whether it’s safe to wear your titanium wedding ring. In these situations, it’s best to err on the side of caution and leave your band at home. Typical scenarios where you might want to avoid wearing your ring include working with heavy machinery, engaging in sports or outdoor activities, or handling harsh chemicals. By being mindful of when you wear your band, you’ll reduce the risk of damaging or losing it.
6. Never Wear Your Ring in the Pool or the Ocean
This bears emphasis: never wear your titanium ring in an open body of water. Although titanium is corrosion-resistant, removing your ring before swimming is still a good idea. Cold water can cause your fingers to shrink, making it easy for your band to slip off your finger and sink to the bottom. Your ring will likely be lost, even in shallow water, as it gets swept up in the current.
