Shine Bright like a Diamond

This is the season to take all of your jewelry out of its hiding places and put it on.You probably forgot what you have.  It might take some time to look through all your hiding places and many drawers and maybe a trips to the bank and safety deposit box to get it all together.

I think this is a great time to go through everything and see what you love and what you never wear.  Just like your closet, jewellery put away if forgotten about.

It is fun to see what can be restyled and reposed.  Is very fancy jewelry, on trend, but is worn every day. My recommendation is to wear what you have.  Make it your style.  Integrate old and new.

At the holidays it is so nice to see the pieces that remind yourself and others of family members no longer around.

I like to use these occasions as times to take stock, check out the security of the stones on their settings, the state of the setting, clasps, and sizes. 

Jewellery and Diamonds will last a long time but it needs to be looked after properly.

Here is a checklist to consider before wearing your jewelry out for an event.


Are the findings and stones secured?Do you have proper back? Do shepherd hooks have stoppers to prevent the hooks from catching on jackets and scarfs?

Lemon Citrine earrings, @pashJewelleryDesign

This is a great example of a very safe back butterfly, big enough to protect your lovely earrings to fall down and get lost.

Necklaces, and rings with stones.  Rings with diamonds are most often set in claws.  The claws overtime wear out or can be bent out of shape.  You need to make sure these are secure. So, each year check the setting and the condition of the stone. 

Stones chip, even diamond.  Jewel Envy will look at you jewelry for free to let you know the condition or you jewelry. 

If you have insurance you have to report that to your insurance company when you find it.  Best practices are to review your jewelry and your insurance policy every year.

Turquoise and pink Sapphires ring. @glacialegoldsmith

This lovely ring from Alexis Kostuk has six claws that hold the turquoise, they are strong and long enough to keep the stone in place.

Ring Size and Ring Fit.

A ring that was maybe a little loose on your finger in the summer is ok.  When the winter comes around it can be an issue.  Your fingers tend to get smaller and the ring bigger.  You are also in and out of your car, putting your gloves on and off.  Maybe wiping off the snow from your car with your bare hands. 

Opps, there your ring slips off your finger.  It drops into the soft snow, no cling to let you hear it drop and sadly it is gone. 

It is a small fee and an easy repair to size a plain band.  Something with stones should be handled with care. 

Jewel Envy’s repair services help you with all of your sizing and repair needs.
