Garnets are a beautiful symbol of power, strength, and good luck. They also happen to be the gemstone for January birthdays. If you just got a beautiful garnet ring to celebrate January or just for fun, you probably want to know the right way to store it safely. Here are some tips on how to store your garnet rings in Plantation. 

Here’s How to Store Your Lovely Garnet Rings in Plantation

Garnets are between a 6 and a 7.5 on the Mohs scale. This means that they are pretty hard, but they are still soft enough that you should be careful in your storage and care of your garnet rings. With proper storage, you can be sure of the wellbeing of your jewelry beyond your lifetime. These care guidelines are also often true of other jewelry. 

You should store each piece of your jewelry in its own soft cloth or in its own section of a soft container. Keep this jewelry in a clean, cool, and dry location where it will be safe from the elements. 

Just like you maintain your health by going to the doctor regularly, you should take your garnet ring to a professional jeweler at least once or twice a year. This allows your jewelry to be professionally cleaned. Your jeweler can also do a careful check to see if there are any issues that need addressing. 

You should always take your garnet rings off when you are doing things like washing dishes. Not only will this protect your ring from falling down the drain, but it will prevent your jewelry from getting damaged. Always put your jewelry somewhere safe when you take it off to make sure that it does not get lost.
