How often should I inspect my jewelry?



How often should I inspect my jewelry?


It is a good idea to have your diamonds inspected at least twice a year to make sure no prongs have been bent or loosened.

Although it is durable, even 14K gold jewelry will have a tendency to wear or become thinner over the years.

If not checked regularly, it is possible that a diamond may fall out of its setting from a direct blow or from the wearing down of prongs.

If you have lost a diamond, you may send it to me for an estimate of replacement. I will handle it with the utmost care.  Here is a link that will help you safely send your jewelry to me for free inspection:

Wishing you a brilliant day!
