The Basics of Jewellery Care
Take your jewellery off before you go to sleep!
It may sound obvious but many people are in the habit of sleeping with their rings on.
So why does this matter? Your hands often swell at night and if you are wearing a ring all the time you may become so accustomed to it that you might not realize it has drastically reduced the circulation to your finger, which can cause nerve damage.
Another problem that may occur over time is that your hands can change around the ring, so that it no longer comes off at any point.
Both of these situations can lead to a trip to the hospital and end with a surgeon cutting off your ring.
If you like your ring, protect it and take it off at night.
