If you are planning to buy an engagement ring, you have to be aware of the various considerations that you should take when making your choice. Since there are a wide variety of engagement rings in the market, you must know how to make your choices. If chosen with care, a ruby ring can last for a long time. There are also other things that you will have to do after you have already bought or received an engagement ring from a dear person.
The first one is that you must observe proper storage of the ring. When the ring is not in use, I would suggest that you store it in a soft spot that is free from any form of moisture. Remember that moisture is one of the major enemies of all types of metals. To keep your ruby ring well protected, I would suggest that you make use of silver anti tarnish strips.
They are very effective in handling oxidants which in most cases are the cause of discoloration in ruby jewelry. It is also advisable that you store your ruby jewelry separate because in most cases they are rough and will most likely scratch your other items.
