One of the most important concerns in the minds of the jewelry lovers and collectors is regarding the proper care and maintenance of their precious jewels. Keeping the individual jewelry pieces in separate boxes or satin pouches, will avoid the dangers of scratching, abrasion and falling off, of tiny stones and other fillings. It is also important to keep them away from the extremities of temperatures and high humidity to increase the longevity and retain the luster of the jewels.
It is now common to have large pieces of jewelry crafted through sophisticated methods of fabrication which were not possible by the traditional methods of soldering. The smooth surface and intricate designs of the intricately designed jewelry pieces, makes it important to protect the jewels studded in the adornments from any accidental blows or harsh impacts. Regular restring of pearl necklaces and physical checkups of rings, bangle and bracelets help in proper management and care of the setting of jewels in these often worn pieces of jewelry.
Self repair of jewelry pieces and the jewels settings can lead to irreplaceable damages. Avoid forcing, snapping, twisting or tightening of clasps, chains, rings or other parts of your precious jewelry pieces on your own. Expert help and professional advice should be taken for any changes or adjustments.
Jewels are forever and they are valuable heirlooms that are passed down the generations. Proper care and gentle handling of jewelry can maintain their sparkle and radiance for a very long time.
