Clean Diamond

One of the things we did over the weekend after Warren's mom left was to drive down to the store where Warren bought my engagement ring and get a ring checkup. This is a bit of an undertaking as the store is in the Hannover mall, which is a ways a way. We used to take lessons at FADS Hannover, so it was a lot more conveinent back when we were making a weekly trek that way anyways.

The neat thing about getting a ring checkup (aside from assurring that the diamond doesn't fall out of a loose setting) is that they clean the ring for you in their industrial strength steam cleaner. Strangely enough, when you wear a ring 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it gets dirty. Its not dirt that you can see with the naked eye, but it gets into the setting and makes the diamond less sparkly. It had actually been a few years since I last got the ring cleaned and its amazing how much more sparkly the diamond is now.
