2 A really fun manicure

Everyone’s going to want to see that ring. And seriously, if you’re not going to get a manicure now, when WOULD you get one? ;) These nail wraps make it so easy to have perfect nails that last.

3. Cleaner

For engagement ring care, you’ll definitely need a good cleanser. Since soap and water can dull the band and stone, you’ll want to use a gentle cleanser to keep it in tip top shape. This stuff works wonders. You’ll want to pair it with one of these cloths, for quick gentle shine-ups.

4. Ring Dish

When you’re washing dishes, doing laundry, working out, painting, etc., you’ll want a safe place to keep your ring. A ring dish will do the trick! Here are a few of our faves from ring dish expert, Elycia Camille:

5. Warranty

Know your warranty info just in case your ring is lost and needs to be replaced.

6. Peace of Mind

Some people recommend insurance, and that’s great if it gives you peace of mind. I opted out of ring insurance because I never, ever take it off and because it’s one more thing to add to your monthly expenses (and we hate to do that to you). However, it’s worth noting because some brides really find it gives them peace of mind knowing their ring is protected.

We stamp them with dark brown ink one letter at a time using a vintage typewriter font. We fire them with a lead free, clear glossy glaze over the ink so that your text will last.”
