Always give your finger a break now and then. It’s good practice to take it off before bed to let your skin breathe. While you’re doing that, go ahead and clean it up. Here are some tips to keep it shining:
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 fine to wash it, should you work up a good sweat outdoors. If the wood or antler inside gets wet, it will expand and ruin your ring. Obvious water damage to standard rings will void your one year “no hassle” warranty.
Although we still don't recommend wearing this during your Ironman, our Founder's Line and Custom rings are still covered under your FREE Lifetime “no hassle” warranty. We use a more premium sealant for these rings, so they can handle more, but we still don't recommend submerging them in water. Also avoid lifting heavy metal items and keep away from harsh chemicals. So leave these at home when you hit the gym, beach or the pool. Everyday showering, cooking, hand washing, etc is all safe.
These guys are tough but it never hurts to clean up your band every so often. Wash with dish soap to get rid of any nasties. An old toothbrush can really get in there if you have an intricate design. Then shine with a little Windex. Voila!
Wash with mild soap and water. These guys are SUPER tough, but they lose their luster in the presence of harsh chemicals (bleach, Lysol, etc.) Also know that tile floors are tungsten’s kryptonite, so maybe take him off in the bedroom at night instead of the bathroom...Tungsten can be broken apart with vice grip pliers in an emergency.
While you can totally just wash these with mild soap and water, we recommend a mild toothpaste and toothbrush. Stainless does NOT like Chlorine OR Salt Water, so keep this guy out of the pool.
Use mild soap and water to clean and a soft cloth to dry/polish. These guys are scratch resistant but not scratch proof. A professional buffing at a local jeweler will shine them back up. And then, of course, you can say you’re buff…or you have been buffed.
Use mild soap and water to clean and a soft cloth to dry/polish. Black Zirconium is a two-toned metal, so over time you may see some silver shine through. That is totally normal and it gets even cooler looking with age.
Wash with mild soap and water or fine jewelry cleaner. Gold is a softer metal than the others, so it may scratch over time. You can take it to a local jeweler to get it buffed out for a small fee.
