When To See a JewelerUpdated 2 months ago

"Recognizing when your jewelry needs professional maintenance is crucial for preserving its beauty and longevity."

Here are some signs to watch for, indicating it's time for professional attention:

Loose Stones

If you notice any diamonds in your jewelry becoming loose or shifting within their settings, it's essential to have them inspected promptly. Loose diamonds can increase the risk of loss and further damage if left unaddressed.

Worn Prongs

Check the prongs holding your diamonds in place regularly. If you observe any prongs that appear worn, bent, or broken, they may require re-tipping or repair to ensure the diamonds remain securely set.

Damaged Clasps

Inspect the clasps on necklaces, bracelets, and chains for signs of wear, such as bending, cracking, or difficulty in opening and closing. A damaged clasp can compromise the security of your jewelry and increase the risk of loss.

Scratches and Dullness

Over time, jewelry may accumulate scratches and lose its luster due to everyday wear. If you notice significant scratches, dullness, or tarnishing, professional cleaning and polishing can restore its original shine and beauty.

Bent or Misshapen Metal

Examine the metal components of your jewelry for any signs of bending, warping, or misshaping. Bent prongs, twisted bands, or misaligned settings may require professional repair to ensure structural integrity and aesthetic appeal.

General Wear and Tear

Pay attention to any changes in the overall condition of your jewelry, such as missing diamonds, chipped metal, or signs of breakage. These indicators suggest that your jewelry may benefit from professional maintenance and repair to prevent further damage.

When in doubt, it's always best to consult with a reputable jeweler who can assess the condition of your jewelry and recommend the necessary repairs or maintenance. By addressing issues promptly and seeking professional care when needed, you can ensure that your jewelry remains in optimal condition for years to come.
