What’s the best way to care for my Scott Kay ring?
Every piece of Scott Kay wedding jewelry is designed to become a future heirloom. The precious metals we work with are inherently durable, and diamonds are, by nature, the hardest (read: chip- and scratch-resistant) gems in existence. While your ring is meticulously handcrafted to hold up to everyday wear, it should also be preserved and cared for like a priceless work of art. To keep your Scott Kay ring in superb condition, and enjoy its remarkable beauty for years to come, we recommend the following care and cleaning tips:
- When not being worn, store the ring in a safe place like a ring tree or the Scott Kay jewel box it came in, avoiding contact with your other jewelry to prevent nicks and scratches.
- Consider removing your ring when working with your hands or engaging in activities that could result in ring damage or loss, from housework and food prep to swimming and exercise.
- Avoid removing your ring when washing your hands in a public restroom; when traveling, keep it locked it in your hotel room’s safe.
- Perfumes, lotions, shampoo and other chemical-based products, as well as the natural oils in your skin, can create grime and buildup over time. To maintain your ring’s beauty, gently wipe it clean with a damp cloth as needed. Our retailers are also happy to recommend a number of professional jewelry-cleaning solutions, and will help you select one based on your ring’s design.
- If your ring features diamond pavé accents, do not use an at-home ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, which can potentially loosen the stones.
- Finally, we recommend having a Scott Kay Authorized Retailer check the center stone’s prongs once a year to ensure that the gem remains securely in place.
