You wouldn’t think about it but winter accessories such as gloves can be risky to your rings and bracelets. It may get entangled with the claws of the ring. This may cause the gemstones or diamonds to become loose and potentially fall out.
The presence of winter-specific clothing items means added risk of harming your jewellery when getting dressed and undressed. As a result, you may have to send it to a jewellery workshop in London to get it repaired.
Here are some tips to care for your precious jewellery in winters:
Clean it up
You can look to make a moderately thick paste of water and baking soda. Dip a toothbrush in this mixture and scrub it gently across the surface of the jewellery. This will ensure base level cleaning for the precious items of worth. The best part is that this solution or mixture is free to make and use.
Avoid the cracks by using a ring guard
The cold weather may restrict blood flow to your fingers. As a result, the ring might feel loose. There is nothing to worry in such situations, before taking your ring to a jewellery repairs expert here in Essex, try adjusting the circumference with a ring guard. Additionally, it is not recommended to constantly resize the ring due to these issues as it may tend to make the metal bend out of shape and damage the aesthetic appeal of the ring.
Pay attention to winter wear around the jewellery
As it is the season of sweatshirts, scarves and waffle knits, you may potentially grip your favourite clothing on buckles, prongs of the ring or the locking mechanism of the bracelet. This can severely harm your jewellery and necessitate a visit to the jewellery workshop.
Be certain to keep your precious valuable jewellery items in a safe if you plan to do any activities such as skiing and snowboarding.
How to handle jewellery while travelling
Winter often means travelling to various places. This calls for taking care of the precious possession so that there is no chipping, scraping, or denting that may require you to send your jewellery for repairs in Essex. It is suggested to pack the jewellery in a padded area of your suitcase, preferably in a box or pouch that was provided with the piece. This is a much better option than tossing loose jewellery into a suitcase, as it will most certainly get damaged.
When you use the above tips, you can ensure that the jewellery makes it through the winter without any damage.
