Keeping My Diamond Sparkly

Here's one maintenance routine I'm actually really good about:

I get my engagement ring checked every six months. (How sad is it that my record for dental maintenance isn't nearly as good? *ahem*)

I have good incentive to do so; my husband purchased the coverage so that if anything happens- even the diamond falling out- they will fix it, no charge, as long as I've had my "checks". Fair enough.

I love how sparkly my diamond always looks after those check-ups too! I like to try to keep it bright and shiny in between times too. This isn't always easy given the fact that I pretty much take it off, um, NEVER.

My secret weapon?

An old, clean mascara wand. With a little mild soap, it's perfect for getting in all those little cracks and crevices! Just a few minutes here and there and my ring looks (almost) as sparkly as it did up there in that pic... on the day it first graced my finger.

Good practice. My diamond actually did fall out when I'd only had my ring for about five months. After a frantic search I found the diamond in the paper shredder. I'd been shredding old bills and decided I was going to have to go through all the little pieces of paper. Fortunately the diamond sparkled!

Did you get your ring at a Helzberg, perchance? ;-) we had a deal like that, too, but then moved an hour and a half away from the nearest Helzberg. Sadness. Now I clean it myself with Walmart jewelry cleaner and hope nothing happens to it!
