Swimming – Before you dive into the pool or go swimming into open water, make sure that you remove your jewelries first. There might be some chlorine in the mix which can cause your jewelry to blacken. Also, if the water is cold, then it can shrink your fingers thus allowing the ring to slip off it.

When a ring is uninsured, losing it or getting it stolen can be a total loss especially if you can’t afford to buy a new one at the same price.
