The Danger of Wearing Rings on the Right Hand. A typical line that salespeople use to sell you a ring is, “Just wear it on your right hand.” Sounds like a great idea when you can’t find a wedding ring to complement your engagement ring perfectly. Trouble is most women are right handed. People damage their rings even on their left hand – lose stones, scratch up their rings, chip the center stone – can you imagine what will happen if a right handed person starts wearing a ring on their right hand. Inevitable destruction! At Elsa we never tell you to wear a ring on your right hand just so we can sell you a ring…we’ll design and make you one that will go perfectly…at an affordable price.
It is the popular opinion of the public that diamonds are too hard to be damaged. However this is not always the case although currently diamonds are the hardest mineral known to man. A badly cut diamond or a poor quality diamond with cracks is more likely to break than a high quality stone. A simple (but not visible to you) crack tapped against a hard surface a few times can break it into pieces.
Diamonds ARE Susceptible to Damage. Diamonds worn on your right hand ring finger are more vulnerable to damage from everyday activities and chores. Even though you naturally remove your diamonds before cleaning, gardening and other physical activity; your diamonds are more likely to be damaged when worn on your right hand. Even swimming in chlorinated water can cause damage to them - or leave them more prone to damage - as chlorine can damage gold weakening the prongs holding the diamonds on. Which of course will in turn cause breakage to the diamond itself if you bang it up against something or the stone may fall out altogether.
Not only are these several reasons to not wear an expensive diamond ring on your right hand; but you should bring your diamond rings in and have them cleaned and the settings checked for any loosening of the diamonds.
