Before bed you should remove your ring to allow your pores to breathe. Here are some tips to keep your ring at tip-top shape:
Our standard rings are water-resistant, not waterproof. Our jeweler has sealed the wood in with a durable jewelry resin, but try to remember not to swim or shower with it. Soap and water is good to wash it. If the wood or antler inside gets wet, it will expand and ruin your ring. Obvious water damage to standard rings will void your lifetime warranty. So we don't recommend submerging them in water. Also avoid lifting heavy metal items and keep away from harsh chemicals. Avoid wearing when you go to the gym, beach or the pool.
Wash with dish soap. An old toothbrush works well if you have any complex design. You can shine your ring with a little Windex.
Wash with mild soap and water. Tungsten can lose it's if exposed to harsh chemicals (bleach, Lysol, etc.) Also, if Tungsten is dropped on tile floors they may become chipped or damaged, so maybe take them off when in the bathroom or kitchen. Tungsten can be broken apart with vice grip pliers in an emergency.
While you can wash these with mild soap and water, we recommend a mild toothpaste and toothbrush. Stainless does NOT like Chlorine, so keep this ring out of the pool.
Your ring is sealed with a heavy duty sealer, but just know, since Meteorite is composed mostly of iron, oxidation is always possible. Exposure to oxidizing agents such as chlorine, bleach or salt can change the pH of the Meteorite and increase chances of rusting. So chemicals found in household cleaners, pools, hot tubs and even salt water should be avoided.
Using a little baking soda and an old toothbrush works great. Just be sure to dry it well. Every six months apply 3 in 1 oil to the meteorite to keep it looking its best.
Diamond inset rings should not be cleaned by ultrasonic or steam and must be checked by a local jeweler a couple times a year. Besides this, mild soap and water work great to bring back the shine.
