Warning Signs That Your Jewellery Needs Repair
When you invest in diamond jewellery, or receive some as a gift, you’ll soon be aware of how valuable it can be, as well as how fragile it is. Despite your best efforts to look after your jewellery, at times there may be a cause to get it repaired, which will not only strengthen your jewellery but ensure that it remains wearable, and doesn’t look its value. The signs of wear and tear are not always clear cut, so to help you to identify the warning signs, we’ve put together some common signs that your jewellery is in need of repair below.
Your Jewellery Feels Loose
It may be a gradual thing, or it may happen suddenly, but if an item of jewellery feels loose and fragile, it may be a sign that something is not right. By taking your jewellery in for repairs, you could fix problems such as loose links or even a stretch or bending of the precious metal which may lead to a breakage further down the line.
Your Jewellery Opens, Or Falls Off
Bracelets and pendants in particular can have problems with clasps and fixings, whilst earring may become loose and fall out. If this were to happen without you noticing, it could be impossible to find your jewellery again. Don’t ignore any signs that show that the fixings of your jewellery may be broken. Even if a clasp opens once or your item falls off just once, seek advice from professional jewellery repairers just to double check that everything’s ok. Like a car, a piece of jewellery is a valuable item and ignoring signs of damage can cause hurt later on.
One of More Stones Have Come Loose
In jewellery which has multiple diamonds, when a stone becomes loose or falls out, it could have an effect on the rest of the item, and other stones might soon follow suit. Gather up any lost diamonds that you can (you can also get them replaced if they are lost) and take them to a jeweller like
Regency Jewels to ensure that the claws are sturdy and won’t be at risk from further falling out.
Your Jewellery Is Unpolished or Dirty
