The Silver Web Jewelry Notes
Care of your prong set jewelry
is an important part of jewelry maintenance. Most stones, set in
this manner, are of a higher value than those that aren't, and
you want to do all you can to prevent them from becoming loose,
and falling out.
The main thing you can do is to
not subject the prong set pieces to activities that will expose
the jewelry to unnecessary banging. This is primarily true for
rings and bracelets. When possible remove them before doing heavy
housework, or sports that involve your hands or wrists such as
volleyball or softball.
Once a year (or more) it is a
good idea to check for loose stones and prong wear. Even your
well made, good jewelry, is subject to wear, and most likely will
eventually need some attention.
You can do a preliminary test
for loose stones, by holding them near your ear, and gently
tapping them with a finger. If they feel like they have moved, or
you hear a faint clicking sound, take them to a jeweler for
These simple hints should help you catch a problem before it gets to be a big problem.
