Get your ring photo-shoot ready with our expert tips!

Remember the day you first met your engagement ring, and you fell in love with it? Well after a good few months of wear and tear, that stunning sparkle may well have faded. All those seemingly harmless things you can expose your ring to can all play their part. We’re taking here about washing with soap, swimming, harsh chemicals etc.

You’ll be pleased to know though that the wonderful thing about diamonds is that they never ever lose their beauty and brilliance once they’re cut! You simply have to keep them clean to keep that look that you had the day you bought them. Read our tips for looking after your diamond and silver jewellery.

Even with the best maintenance routine, there are times when only a professional clean will do, and with some of our most popular jewellery services being cleaning and re-rhodium plating, we are always happy to help you find your jewellery sparkle again in no time! In this blog we’re shining a light on some of the events that you will definitely want your jewellery cleaned for.

Your Engagement Photos

As you announce your engagement one of the first events couples often plan for is the engagement party. That time between the proposal and the big day is a unique part of your relationship, which makes it well worth documenting. Once all your friends and family are all together, there will be photos galore taken, and people often see your engagement ring as one of the biggest draws.

When you’re reminiscing about that great party in years to come, you want to be able to look back at them with pride, and having your engagement ring looking amazing just helps that along really doesn’t it!

Your Engagement Shoot

This is a time for your engagement ring to take centre stage and really shine, and the best way for that to happen is for it to look it’s gleaming best. In fact your Photographer will most definitely be wanting to zoom in on your beautiful ring, so when it’s beautifully clean you won’t need to worry about that close up.

Just before your Wedding Day

This occasion is obvious, right? Some of your guests and most definitely your photographer will be wanting to snap some solo pictures of your engagement and wedding rings, and your partner’s ring. Your guests will also ask to see your new engagement and wedding ring set throughout the reception. You’ll want to make sure that all of your bridal jeweller, and especially your engagement and wedding rings are glistening. No-one wants to look back at their photos from one of their most special days later and wish they had taken the time to visit their Jeweller for a good cleaning!

There’s often a big gap of time between your engagement and your wedding day, and your engagement ring is likely to collect all kinds of dirt and even the odd scratch. Because we completely get that, we offer a free clean and polish to our customers who buy their engagement rings from us. We’ll offer you a card when you buy your engagement ring, and when you collect your wedding rings we’ll clean your engagement ring too, so they both look beautifully sparkling next to each other.

So these are our tips for keeping your jewellery look fabulous for those special occasions; a bit like school photo day when you have to go in looking your best!
