Ocean Bleu pieces are meticulously crafted to stand the test of time, but they remain delicate treasures. By putting a lot of weight or pressure on a ring - for example, by lifting heavy weights, putting your body weight onto your hands, doing housework or exercise and physical activities such as hiking or climbing - you risk damaging it. The additional pressure and weight can cause distress to the setting, and over time it can slowly bend out of shape, which in turn can cause a gemstone to come loose or fall out of its setting entirely. We work with some of the hardest gemstones available for durability, but while sapphires and diamonds are incredibly hard and durable, they are not indestructible and can be chipped if hit at a particular angle with enough force. Care must be taken to not knock your piece against any other hard material. The same applies to the mount itself: gold and platinum are hard wearing, but can also be dent or bent out of shape with a hard knock or if placed under excessive pressure. We always advise taking off fine jewellery when doing any form of exercise or playing sports, doing housework, or doing any other strenuous activity (such as carrying heavy objects) which could place unnecessary pressure on your piece and potentially lead to damaging it. While we are always happy to advise and facilitate repairs of Ocean Blue pieces that might have been damaged through normal wear and tear, this is at our discretion on a case-by-case basis, and we cannot be held responsible for any damaged or lost gemstones. As these pieces are high-value, both materially and sentimentally, we strongly advise all of our customers to take out insurance so costs will be covered in the event of loss or damage.


We recommend regular servicing of your fine jewellery, to make sure it is well looked-after and maintained so it can last a lifetime. We offer a check-up and cleaning service to make sure your piece is secure and looking its best, and can advise if any maintenance work is required. We recommend booking in yearly, with a more thorough re-polish/clean every few years, as to not overly distress the metal. If you feel like any part of your ring is sharp or snagging on things, or otherwise loose, please email us as soon as possible so we can schedule a check-up and carry out any maintenance work - often, it is simply a question of tightening the claws on the setting for maximum safety and comfort of wear. We recommend the ring not be worn in the meantime, as you risk catching the setting on something and loosening the gemstone.


Grime can buildup on a ring, either underneath the settings or around the stones which can cause the diamonds to look dull. To clean at home first soak your jewellery in warm to hot water for about 20-30 minutes. We recommend buying a soft toothbrush specifically for your engagement ring and gently rinsing your ring with warm water (make sure the drain is covered or use a bowl) and add dishwasher liquid and gently brushing the ring with the toothbrush to remove the grime. Repeat this process as necessary. Afterwards dry the your ring and use a jewellery polishing cloth for a sparkling finish. If a lot of grime has built up over time and hardened it might be best to bring the ring to us so we can help you clean the ring professionally and safely. Stay away from household cleaners with harsh chemicals as they could damage or discolor the ring or any abrasive cleaners which could scratch the metal.


  1. At the Gym - When heading to the gym or diving into intense activities like tennis or rock climbing, it's best to leave your ring in a safe place. Our rings, crafted in platinum or gold, are beautifully durable but have their limits. Applying excessive pressure can alter their shape and potentially loosen the precious stones they hold. Protect your ring's integrity and shine by keeping it off during workouts. 
  1. Beauty Regime - While it might feel natural to wear your ring as you prep for the day, remember that common products like moisturizers, lotions, cosmetics, hairspray, and perfumes can accumulate and dull the sparkle of your diamond. Keeping your ring off when applying these products can maintain its radiance and longevity. 
  1. In Water - You should never wear your engagement ring in the ocean, pool or showering. Ocean: Cold ocean waters can cause your fingers to contract, increasing the risk of your ring slipping off and getting lost in the depths. Pool: The chlorine found in pools can potentially damage or tarnish your ring's setting. Showering: There's a danger of the ring slipping off in the shower, especially with the risk of it going down the drain. Additionally, oily or exfoliating body washes may harm the diamond's shine. 
  1. Cleaning - Even though diamonds rank as the hardest material on Earth, they can still chip. Engaging in activities like cleaning brings numerous opportunities to knock your ring against hard surfaces, jeopardizing both its setting and the stone. Common household cleaners possess strong chemicals which can tarnish and discolor your ring's metal. Plus, there's always the risk of your ring slipping off during dishwashing and ending up down the drain. Always play it safe; store your ring securely when engaging in such tasks.
