Brilliance: The closest I get to it is making accidental discoveries.

Brilliance: The closest I get to it is making accidental discoveries.

 

I discovered something truly brilliant this morning – at least in my eyes…  I discovered an amazingly brilliant, quick and easy way to get brilliant clean rings in the shower.
It was yet another example of how the closest I get to brilliance is making accidental discoveries. 

 

I’ve lost weight, enough that I am able to wear my wedding rings again. They are, however, far too loose on me.

This morning in the shower, the rings kept spinning around, irritating me to no end. After spinning them back several times, I just gave up. I left them where they were and continued washing my hair.

My amazingly, brilliantly clean wedding rings and family ring.

Once I got out of the shower and dried off, I noticed that my rings were amazingly clean. I stepped out of the shower with beautiful, brilliant clean rings.

We do get our rings cleaned and checked at the jeweler’s regularly. This is a quick and easy way to clean rings between visits to the jeweler.

So here’s my accidental discovery of the day:

Turn your rings under your fingers while washing your hair. You’ll be amazed at how sparklingly brilliant they look.

So, from now on I’m not going to worry about it if they spin around since the results are so great.

It is important to note that you take care when cleaning rings in the shower. Possibly install a trap in the shower drain in case a stone falls out.

The best way to avoid this is to do as we do – have your jewelry checked regularly. It is feasible that hair could get caught under a loose tine and open it enough to cause the loss of a stone.

PS. I’m sorry for the quality of the picture I took of my rings. I didn’t realize how difficult it is to hold one hand steady while holding the camera and taking the picture with the other.
