The Oura ring is designed to be worn all day long, 24/7. This will result in the ring getting scratched while you are working, doing your hobbies or doing the dishes. If you are having any of the coloured rings they are built with a PVD coating on top of a titanium band. It’s not recommended to polish any of these as it will remove the coating and show the bare metal underneath. If you instead are having the silver ring, then you can buff away the scratches.
The Oura Ring may get scratched by normal wear and build a patina over time. There is also a risk that the ring scratches jewellery made of softer metals like gold and silver or other objects like your phone.
The ring is made of titanium a metal that is not inherently scratch-proof. Like any titanium jewellery, it will build natural oxidisation of the alloy that allows for smaller scratches to become less visible over time.
How To Get Scratches Out Of Titanium
Minor scratches in the titanium can be removed with a cream metal polish. You will need a soft cloth to buff the ring and some water and soap to finish the cleaning process.
- Apply the cream to the metal and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes to dry.
- Gently polish it with a soft cloth to remove the scratches front the surface.
- Use water and some soap to remove the polish residue.
Never polish the sensor.
Alternatively, you can take your Oura ring to a jewellery store and have them polished by a professional.
Protect Your Ring With An Oura Ring Wrap
It’s common for people to protect their wedding rings with a ring wrap. The team at OSleeve has made a wrap that’s custom-made for the Oura. This sleeve will protect your ring when you are working or doing activities that might risk scratching it.
The sleeve is designed to snugly wrap around the edges of the ring to stay in place, keeping a low profile without affecting the collection of the biometric data.
“Although the price seems a bit steep for a small circle of silicone, I have to say that it does the job very well. Fits perfectly around my Oura ring and allows me to wear the ring during workouts, even with barbells, dumbbells, and kettlebells.”
You can buff and polish your silver ring to get the shine back. Another way is to live with it and let the ring will get scratched over time. The small scratches will develop a beautiful patina making it more of a stonewash finish, dull finish.
