Owning diamonds is a privilege, and it’s a good idea to take care of them so you can protect your investment and enjoy them for a long time. In fact, lovely rings, bracelets, pendants, and your diamond tennis bracelet should last a lifetime. Yet, even diamonds need occasional care and cleaning and here are some helpful tips for keeping them up.
A lovely bracelet can be worn while playing sports. In fact, that’s how tennis bracelets got their name. Chris Evert made this piece of jewelry popular by wearing it during tournaments in the late 1980s. However, some activities may cause unnecessary damage or wear, so wearing fine bracelets in places where they could become soiled or damaged isn’t a good idea.
You bring your car to the shop for routine maintenance like oil changes and tune-ups. Why not do the same for your beautiful diamond tennis bracelet? About every year or so, take it to your jeweler to make sure all the stones are securely mounted, and there are no problems with the hasps that hold it to your wrists. Should this break, you could experience a disaster. This is especially important if you wear your jewelry often.
Insuring Your Investment
Talk to your insurance agent about insuring your diamond tennis bracelet. After all, it’s not uncommon for people to spend from two to ten thousand dollars or more for this kind of jewelry. The cost of insurance may be insignificant compared to the peace of mind you’ll receive.
When your bracelet gets dirty, you can use mild soap with a little warm water. Clean with a soft bristled brush and be careful not to scrub too hard. If you can’t get it clean or remove stains, your jeweler is more than happy to clean your jewelry and make it look as good as new.
