Tightening Of Loose Gemstones
Jewellery may receive knocks and bangs during everyday wear. Sometimes this can lead to diamonds and gemstones becoming loose in their settings. There are two simple ways to check for this yourself:
- By shaking the piece close to your ear. If you hear a noise, sometimes like a slight rattle, then one of the gems may be loose.
- If the gems are set using claws/prongs, run the jewellery against a fine cloth. Should the jewellery catch in the cloth one of the claws/prongs may have moved.
Should either of these instances occur, or if you have any doubts, please bring the piece into one of our stores to be checked by a professional.
