Can you wear your ring while applying hand sanitizer?

Corona Virus is here! So I’m sure that means that you have hopefully increased your hand washing, hand sanitizer use and cleanliness skills. But what does that mean for your engagement ring?

Can your ring take the harshness of hand sanitizer? According to James Allen, a online diamond retailer. "excessive exposure to hand sanitizer and cleaning agents can make finish on white gold wear a little bit faster, but it won’t cause immediate damage." However, contact with cleaning agents such as chlorine, bleach, rubbing alcohol, antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers "can break down the brilliance of metals and gems over time.” So obviously you don’t want to stop washing or sanitizing your hands but try your best to remove your ring and place it in a safe place before you clean your hands to try to keep your ring in the best shape!
