Care and Maintenance

Congratulations on the purchase of your new favorite piece of jewelry! Thorum rings are crafted from the world's finest materials and are built to last. While we do extensive quality testing on our rings to ensure the longevity of our product, there are a few simple ways you can help keep your ring looking like new. Here are some of our recommendations based on several years of testing and retesting for quality control. 

Organic Bands/Rock Inlays

Thorum Wooden Ring

For all wood, antler, meteorite, dinosaur bone, damascus steel, or stone rings, we suggest gently cleaning and waxing your ring twice a month. 

Our favorite thing to use is of course, the Thorum Rings Care Kit that’s available on the site. For just 30 bucks, you get everything you’ll need to care for your ring - Each kit includes a 4oz tin of high-quality beeswax and a microfiber towel. As a bonus, we also include an extra discount for you to use or share on a future purchase. 

We also suggest trying to avoid prolonged exposure to moisture or any solvents. We know hand sanitizer is particularly important right now, so if you find yourself using it frequently just slip your ring off before using and pop it back on once your hands have dried. 

Inorganic Bands (Full Metal Designs)

The Freya Thorum Ring

For rings made exclusively from metal such as tungsten carbide rings, we suggest gently washing your ring with dish soap and warm water. This will help to wipe away a lot of the daily buildup and sweat that will accrue on your ring.

Our Tungsten Carbide is PVD IP plated, and the exterior finish will never fade. Simply washing it will bring your ring back to look exactly like the day you bought it. 

Titanium bands can scuff into a matte gray over time. Wiping them down with scotch brite and WD-40 will entirely restore their finish, and always be sure to use a clean microfiber cloth. 

If you’re truly concerned about keeping your ring in pristine condition, or if you have a very hands-on job that may put your ring at risk for scratches or damage, opt for your silicone band instead. 

Our silicone wedding bands are made from medical grade silicone so they’re more durable than you think. They’re 100% waterproof, tested for quality, and easy to wipe clean.

    Would swimming, hot tubs, dishes, showers and general use be okay?

  • David Wittington

    Bought my ring 5 years ago from Thorum, and it still looks AWESOME. I’m buying another for more formal occasions. Thanks guys!

  • Larissa Hadeen

    Does a ring box come with the ring

  • Melissa

    I didn’t know about the full care some of these rings needed when I purchased one.
    I’d suggest providing these instructions before purchasing a ring, and also have these instructions with the deliver of these rings.
    I’d also suggest selling renaissance wax or something similar on your site as well to make it easier for your customers, if possible.
    Just ideas/suggestions.
    Besides that, thanks for the great info and help!

    Do your tungsten rings contain cobalt? My fiancé cannot do cobalt, it causes skin irritation
