We know how precious the wedding ring may be to you. It is the first and the foremost thing that symbolizes your marriage. It’s the reflection of all those commitment and love that your partner shared with you. It would be quite obvious that you wear it all times of your life but is that really important? Should a newly married bride or groom wear her wedding band or wedding ring at all times irrespective of external environment? The answer would be a NO.
There are times when you should actually avoid wearing your wedding ring. The reasons to avoid its usage, are many, but a few of them are mentioned below.
You should not wear your wedding ring when planning to visit a sandy beach. The reasons for this are many but the most common would be the risk of losing your ring somewhere in the water or the endless sand. Apart from this, you can get the sand particles stuck under the diamond or around the edges of the ring, making it dull and worn out. Another thing that can out your wedding ring at risk would be the sunscreen. While heading towards a beach, you might think of applying a sunscreen on your hands, hoping it will protect your hands from the harmful sun rays, but what about the ring? You will hardly realize that a single layer of sunscreen can make your wedding ring cloudy and shineless, especially if it is made up of diamonds or solitaires.
Running, jogging, and lightweight cardio activities have never harmed any wedding ring/ engagement ring and it would never tend to do so. In real life, it’s the weight lifting part of your workout that can make a difference. If you are a fitness freak who tends to lift weight for a toned body, wearing wedding ring may cause potential damage to its shape. A number of times, we have seen couples complaining about the bends and the wear and tear of the rings and so many times it’s because of the weight lifting activity that has caused the damage. So, make sure you are not one of them. While lifting weights in the gym, always try to keep your ring aside at a safer place.
If you think, sunscreen is the only skin product that can create a cloudy layer over your wedding ring, you are wrong. Similar to sunscreen, beauty products including soaps, shampoos, and lotions are also prone to damage your ring with an unwanted cloudy layer which is difficult to wash out. To avoid this, do not take a bath while wearing your wedding ring. Make it a habit and you will see your ring shining and sparkling for years and years.
If you are a homemaker who tends to involve in lots of strenuous activities, taking care of your wedding ring may seem difficult of this. While kneading a dough, gardening, washing utensils and clothes, you will feel taking off your wedding ring. The reason for this will be the care and love that you show towards your ring and this is the objective of this last point. You should wear your wedding ring while doing any kind of strenuous activity. It can contribute to the wear and tear of the wedding ring.
As you are now open to some of the activities that can damage your wedding ring, follow them with due diligence to spend a long time with your precious wedding ring.
Hope this works for you.
