Can you ladies share your experience with these bands? I absolutely love the look of my ring but the functionality part is the part where there is issues. Initially I never took my ring off but after noticing the detailed band was getting stuff stuck in it I started taking the rings off for everything except eating. So here is the gross part. The detailed cut outs still have stuff that is getting lodged in there and my only conclusion is this must be food. Yep. Gross. Is this common in these styles? I don’t care if the wedding band matches exactly so I’m debating getting a more see through style for the wedding band but would like to know if this would still happen with those bands. I’m not considering resetting my engagement ring. I’ve enclosed some pics to show what I mean by see through. It’s hard to tell in pics or in person but my band is actually see through. Thanks ladies for the input

I originally wanted a filigree ring and passed on the idea in favor of an engraved ring for this reason. I’m a hairdresser and I was worried my ring would constantly be full of hair product gunk.

Unfathomably: do you have a closer up picture? I’d like to see the details!

Mine isn’t veraggio, my FI had it custom made to look antique and intricate along the band. I have no issues with it getting dirty in the band, I usually clean it with a soft toothbrush every night to keep it looking new 🙂

Sara1923: Try buying a sonicator/ultrasonic cleaner for your ring. That will definitely dislodge any gunk in really tiny crevices.

The center stone is FB Radiant Cut Moissanite with natural diamond baguette side stones. The center setting of the ring is white gold, double prong, and the band is 14k yellow gold, all hand engraved. There is a floral pattern on the face of the band and a wheat pattern on the sides and it is all edged with miligrain.
FI had it made custom on Etsy. 🙂

FutureDrAtkins: awesome thank you for the tip. Its been seriously grossing me out so I appreciate the tip. I have tried rinsing it under the faucet but it didnt help at all.
steph91: this is why i love the bee… toothbrush is such a simple solution that for some reason didnt cross my mind. i remember my mom having a jar of lotion looking stuff to clean jewelry so I just assumed this is how you must clean jewelry. I love the style of your ring your FI did a great job designing it

Sara1923: I second the tooth brush! I now do it almost nightly thanks to the bees! mine isn’t as intricate but it does have holes were things get lodged. In the bath room I keep a shot glass and dawn soap. one drop dawn and warm water I let is soak while brushing my teeth and washing my face and a quick polish with a baby tooth brush. I give my ring a good cleaning every other weekend or so with my jewelry cleaner.

I have a Verragio engagement ring and band. I keep them on constantly unless I’m doing something really messy. The only gunk I have noticed is lotion if I get it on my ring and it dries, so I try to remove my rings to put on lotion, or to put it on carefully and avoid the ring area. Most residue just gets washed off when I wash my hands. I’ve been meaning to get a toothbrush to help!

I have a side question! Does anyone have the pointy part of the band too – does that ever bother you? (2nd pic from the OP, pointed part of the band on the bottom)

Sara1923: Beautiful ring, a small toothbrush will do the trick !

Mine is fairly open so it keeps pretty clean. It was one of the things I was worried about.
