The easiest and safest way to clean an engagement ring or other type of ring with precious metals is to use warm water, a small amount of dish washing soap and a soft toothbrush. Mix the solution of water and soap and let the ring soak for 10-20 minutes. Then use a soft toothbrush to clean off any excess dirt, makeup or anything else still lingering.

People underestimate the extent to which surroundings impact their mood, thoughts, and behaviors. This includes both the aesthetic and atmosphere (i.e. energy). It’s important to understand the type of environments that inspire you so you can choose where you spend your time wisely.
