Your Jewelry Needs Your Attention

Most people know, but I’m just saying anyway, your jewelry requires maintenance.

It is really important.

Maintenance is your responsibility as a jewelry owner, not the responsibility of your insurance company.

Truth be told, on more than one occasion I have put something in my sonic cleaner for a client only to find out their diamond was shaken loose by the vibration, and now living in the bottom of my cleaner.

I try not to think about what might have been holding it in…

But if that had happened somewhere other than my cleaner, the diamond would be gone.

Prongs wear down over time, channels become thin.   Settings are not permanent and, may periodically, require rebuilding or resetting.

Most jewelry stores will clean and examine your jewelry, for free. They are thrilled to have you looking at their inventory while they are checking it, hoping you will find something you can’t live without.

And, if you do have a security issue, perhaps you will allow them to repair it for you.

So take advantage once a year to let your jeweler examine it for you, under magnification.  But you also need to keep an eye on your setting.  You may be able to see if a prong has moved, is missing, or looks thin. If so, get it in right away to your jeweler to get it checked.

I am embarrassed to admit that even I, one time, could actually hear my diamond rocking in the setting…and I was sitting in a movie at the time!
