Let’s Talk About Jewelry Repairs
I’ve been hearing all the time things like, “my ring broke at the bottom”, “my diamond fell out” or “my pearls broke.”
The calls I want to get are, “seems like time to check my prongs,” “I bet my pearls are due for a restringing,” or “could you come by and check my rings and look at my necklaces to see if they need a tune up?”
You love your jewelry. A great way to have it love you, and last longer and not let you down is to tune it up now and again just like a car.
The Mystery of Jewelry Breakage, “But I Didn’t Do Anything to it!”
I too have been that person who looks down to see a gemstone missing and the first thing I say to myself is, “but I didn’t hit it or anything.”
I’m kind of upset that it “happened” to me. Like I had nothing to do with it.
Then I get out my loupe and look closely at the prongs and see the story. They are dinged and bent.
So if I didn’t hit it up against something (repeatedly, judging from the worn condition I see) who did? Hmmm, I guess it was me, but I didn’t notice.
I guess I’ll admit that it’s possible since I find random bruises sometimes and have no recollection of colliding with anything. And yet I must have done something to have gotten that little black and blue mark.
These little life collisions happen and your jewelry can get a bit chewed up without your realizing it.
So What do You do About it?
Get on a Schedule in Spring and Fall with Your Jeweler.
Arrange to have your jewelry cleaned.
At the same time have your prongs checked and re-aligned as needed.
Use a calendar, use your phone, but find a way to remind yourself.
