Jewelry Hints, Tips and Tricks: How to take off a ring properly

 Did you know that there is a right way to take off your rings?

Always pull from the sides of the SHANK portion of your ring. We have a tendency to pull rings, especially when they are  tight,  to grab the stone and bottom which can result in loosening of the stone or even bending of prongs! 
Better yet, use a little lubrication on your finger and the ring by taking rings off when you wash your hands, for all but the softest of stones. This will not only help you get the ring off without damaging it but will help keep it sparkling. Be sure to rinse well to remove the soap residue and use warm, not overly hot, water.
