Where to Store Your Engagement Ring
You should always keep your jewelry in a safe place. If you have a home safe, that's a great option — especially if it's tucked away in a place that's not easily accessible. You may also consider insuring your engagement ring, which is easy and inexpensive. You can also add your engagement ring onto your renters or home insurance.
Should You Keep Your Engagement Ring in a Box?
Yes! You absolutely should when you're sleeping. Over time, the constant exposure to the heat of your body can cause your bands to warp to the shape of your finger, so taking off your ring and stowing it away at night gives it a little breather. Invest in a jewelry box worth your while. This one, called the Skultana, has a soft lining and a sturdy base, so it won't knock over. If you keep a small box like this on your bedside table, it should remind you to take off your ring before going to sleep.
How to Preserve Your Wedding Band
For rings without stones, you don't run the risk of loosening or damaging your ring, so some people do sleep in their rings — like men with their wedding bands. If you have an eternity or infinity band, you might consider going for one with stones only on one side, since the underside of the band is more susceptible to getting banged up (think door handles or housework!). Some people also find a design like this one more comfortable to wear.
