Don’t dive in!!!

Monday, September 10th, 2007

As I said in a past blog we are going to have a FAQ or question and answer section on our updated web site. This is one of the biggest problems/questions that come up every summer. Broken and brittle rings start showing up in our store around June. I am here to tell you that Chlorine is a jewelery KILLER!!!! If you swim in your rings, bracelets or necklaces then they are in danger of becoming brittle and breaking, with no way of being repaired. What happens is that the Chlorine is a corrosive agent that attacks the alloys, in your jewelry making them weak and unwearable. When this happens the items usually break and can never be restored to wearable again. Sure we can solder most anything but is only a temporary fix. This problem has been getting worse and worse over the past few years due to the fact that every new subdivision has a pool and more people are using them. So if you can remember to remove all your valuables before you swim you can insure that they will last much longer. One more tip, come in and have your jewelery cleaned and checked at least once a year. A good time to do that is June, right before vacation time. It’s free and quick, anytime.DSCN0016.JPG
