Driftwood Jewellers recommends these few steps that may help prolong the life of your treasured pieces.
With nearly a third of our lives spent in slumber by taking your jewellery off at night you could increase its longevity by a similar percentage.
This reduces the chance of soap and shampoo building up around the stones or other areas of importance such as clasps on chains and bracelets.
The oil from these cleaning substances can build up over time which can create issues with the appearance of your piece and may require cleaning on a frequent basis.
By doing this you can have your pieces assessed for wear and tear it is cheaper to re-claw a stone than to re-claw and replace a stone.
Prevention is a far more cost effective process than replacement. All metals do wear and also fatigue so if you want to keep it for a life time look after like you look after your health.
