The Bride-to-Be’s Wedding Jewelry Checklist: Part One: Your Engagement Ring

It seems like Brides-to-Be have a million things to do before the big day. Deciding on dresses and shoes, invitations and flowers (and who will sit next to grandma?) There are a million details, so many of which will be only memories rarely reflected on after the wedding day. All too often one of the few things that will remain a part of your day to day life after the wedding, your wedding jewelry, gets neglected.

So we've put together a simple checklist that will help you streamline the jewelry side of wedding day planning.

First and Foremost, Take Proper Care of Your Engagement Ring !!!


After you've been presented with that sparkling stunner from Ben Garelick, what do you do? If it’s not a perfect fit, let our professional jeweler size your engagement ring. This takes just a few days, up to a week at most.  If you’re not sure about the size, stop in and chat with us about the fit. We’ll take a look and talk with you about what constitutes a good fit.

While you’re here, learn about your engagement ring, and how to care for it. We’ll explain the best practices to keep your ring sparkling and beautiful. Proper care and cleaning will keep your ring looking its best. Have it professionally checked every six months for damage and wear to prevent diamond loss. Visit us at Ben Garelick Jewelers any time to have your ring cleaned to a beautiful shine.  It only takes a few minutes, and makes your whole day sparkle!

Finally, insure your ring. The only thing more heartbreaking than losing your engagement ring is not being able to replace it. Ben Garelick recommends Jeweler’s Mutual offering excellent coverage for lost or damaged stones and rings. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable peace of mind can be.
