Jewelry repair can be similar to any household problem. You don't wait to fix a leaky roof until the whole roof has to be replaced. You fix the leak before you have to replace the roof. Even if you don't know the first thing about jewelry, other than it's pretty and fun to wear, it is important to take your jewelry to a professional.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen faced with broken jewelry you may think to yourself, "I don't remember hitting it or catching it on anything." Then you take it to your local jeweler and they show you all the dents and dings under a microscope. If you never take your jewelry off for tasks such as washing dishes, putting away laundry, or even going to bed, you may be unaware of the beating your jewelry is actually taking.\r\nWhy Is Your Ring Dull?\n\r\nYou'd be amazed at all the things that can get stuck in your jewelry, dulling its sparkle. Lotions, perfumes, paint, and even hair can be found in the nooks and crannies of your jewelry. Periodically you should have it cleaned. It's a great opportunity to have any maintenance needs addressed. Cleaning is usually complimentary for a few items and you'll be amazed at the difference a little scrubbing can do.\r\n\r\nHow Can You Extend the Life of Your Jewelry?\r\n\r\nhaving your jewelry routinely checked.\r\nMost earrings are lost because of switching the earring backs. Bring them in for a cleaning (our ears can be more gross than we realize) and have the backs checked.\r\nDull engraving? Before it completely disappears have a hand engraver go back over and re-engrave the details you fell in love with.\r\nNot wearing a necklace because it's too long or short? Necklaces can be shorted or sometimes extended without going through the hassle of buying a completely new one. Another easy fix.\r\nLove a necklace or bracelet but hate the clasp? You don't have to be married to it. All clasps can be easily changed.\r\nAll clasps need to be checked for security. You don't want to look down one day and find that your favorite necklace or bracelet fell off and you didn't realize it.\r\n\r\n\r\nIf your jewelry has a missing stone or a broken chain, don’t store it in your jewelry box forever because it's suffered from a little wear and tear. When it comes to your jewelry, there's really no excuse not to get it fixed. Drop by and we’ll triage your treasures.
