What Can Jewelers Repair?
Often, the need for jewelry repair arises due to wear and tear, accidental damage, or the natural aging of the piece. Jewelry is not just a material possession; it often holds significant sentimental value, representing cherished memories or special moments. Whether it’s a treasured family heirloom that’s showing its age or a favorite piece that’s been accidentally damaged, the need for a jeweler’s repair services is crucial. Skilled jewelers can restore these precious items, ensuring they continue to shine and carry their meaningful stories for years to come.
At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, we believe that every piece of jewelry tells a story. Our mission is not only to help you create and choose the perfect piece but also to guide you in caring for your treasures to ensure they last a lifetime and beyond.
Proper Jewelry Care: An Ounce of Prevention
Jewelry is more than just an accessory; it’s an expression of who you are. Keeping it in optimal condition requires consistent care and attention. Wearing jewelry during activities like sports or household chores can expose your precious pieces to damage. Chemicals in cleaning supplies, cosmetics, chlorine, and even natural body oils can tarnish metals and dull gemstones.
Avoid wearing jewelry while bathing or swimming, and always remember to put your jewelry on last when getting dressed to minimize exposure to harmful substances. Regularly cleaning your jewelry with a soft cloth can keep it looking its best. However, some pieces may require professional cleaning to maintain their shine and integrity.
