In the Loupe

Welcome to “In the Loupe”! I have a more light hearted entry for you this week. I want to share with all of you a secret. I have to preface this by saying that we at Plumb Gold have been using this trick since before a certain Greek themed movie came out.

For those of you that don’t know me personally, you should know that some say I came out of the womb toting a can of Johnson’s paste wax. Even though both my parents and one of my grandfathers work(ed) at SC Johnson...this is not a shameless plug. Can any of you guess yet? The big secret is...Windex.

The reason we can dedicate a whole column to this miracle product is that it truly works. It is the ultimate multi tasker. One of the most difficult things we combat at Plumb Gold is fluctuating finger size. Our hands change over time, with the outside temperature or even depending on what we eat.

It is just part of being human. If you are confronted with a ring that is a little too tight or is stuck, do not use soap or lotion! These cake on the underside of rings and get filmy, which dulls your jewelry and gems! Instead, spray a little windex on your knuckle, finger and at the back of your ring. Move the ring around a bit to get the windex underneath it. The windex will simultaneously clean your jewelry! Then, carefully slide the ring off your finger. It should come off easily! Immediately rinse the ring with warm water!

Finally, for those of you who are tempted (you know who you are), do not lick your finger to get your ring off! Use Windex instead! You may find yourself a lot healthier this winter!
