Looking after your Wedding Jewellery
Looking after Your Wedding Jewellery
Many brides and grooms spend good money on the jewellery for their wedding only to have it locked away. Necklaces, watches, earrings and rings that were part of your big day often barely get looked at.
If you have wedding jewellery that you hardly wear, it’s time to take it out of the box. Even if you don’t plan on wearing it, jewellery must be kept in pristine condition. After all, these pieces were a big part of your big day and the memories that you formed.
Here is some advice for caring for your wedding jewellery.
How to Best Look Your Wedding Jewellery
Proper care and maintenance of your jewellery will keep it in good condition. We want our clients to have quality jewellery that will last a lifetime. Here are some of the best ways you can keep your jewellery in pristine condition:
Take it out of the Box
Like everything else in life, jewellery needs to be taken care of and given some attention. Have you ever been inside a jewellery shop and seen the staff cleaning an item? This is because dust can cause damage to jewellery.
Always take your jewellery out of the jewellery box and give it a quick clean with a cloth. Doing this will keep the jewellery clean and free from dust. However, it is important to never clean your jewellery with cleaning products. Unless you have been given a solution by your jeweller, household cleaners can destroy your jewellery. Always ask your jeweller about care instructions for your piece and ensure it is kept clean.
Servicing Your Watches
Watches are often the most looked after piece of jewellery as they are the most used. Most owners will bring their watch in for either a new battery or to adjust the kinks. However, your watch also needs to be serviced. Watches come in different sizes and with different functions. Watch servicing includes:
- Mechanical movement servicing
- Case polishing
- Bracelet and dial repairs
- Water pressure testing
- Strap repairs and re-strapping for leather watches
Watches are timeless pieces of jewellery and they should be looked after accordingly. They are often a sentimental item, particularly for men, and they need to be in good working order.
Jewellery has significant sentimental value to an owner. It represents memories, moments, relationships and commitments. Whether you wear it all the time or only on special occasions, you need to take care of your wedding jewellery. If you have been neglecting your jewellery, come speak to Anania.
