What Can Jewellery Repair Services Do?
One of the biggest problems with jewellery is that its stones can become loose or fall out. While this is a bigger issue with inexpensive pieces, it can also happen to the best of them. Jewellery is exposed to motion every time it's worn, and some types are also prone to being knocked against things. Rings in particular can take quite a beating, with the wearer rarely being aware of all of the things they lightly knock their fingers into during the day.
When this happens, it's important to take the piece in for jewellery repair as soon as possible. This is so that the stone doesn't get lost. If that stone is a diamond or other precious stone, its loss will be very expensive. Even if the stone is only semi-precious, you won't want to lose it and have to take your jewellery out of service.
Another common problem is the failure of the clasp on a necklace or bracelet. This is usually caused by simple wear and tear. It will need to be repaired before you wear the item again, or the jewellery will just fall off. If you notice an impending failure, you should stop wearing the piece until it is fixed. Otherwise, it can fall off unexpectedly, and you might not notice it. Then, the item will be lost.
Watch repair is another service often done by jewellers, either right there in the shop or by sending the watch to its manufacturer. If the watch repair involves the band, it will usually be fixed on site. The same goes for battery replacement. However, mechanical problems with the actual timepiece may require sending it away. Either way, the shop should be able to ensure that your watch is fixed.
