I was browsing serious prettiness a la Kristin Coffin recently and realized something about engagement rings that doesn’t get the attention it should: how to protect your engagement ring.

Tips to Protect Your Engagement Ring

1. A safe place to store it.

I never take my ring off. When I first wore my engagement ring, I was nervous about it getting scratched or the diamond falling out. As in, just deciding to, whoops, slip right out. I eventually got used to it on my finger, and the idea of totally losing a diamond eventually faded. The more I wore it, the less I worried about something happening to it. And it was always on my finger, so I’d always know where it was. And I realize I’m probably in the minority because I know lots of people take their ring off for all sorts of reasons.
