Here at FBWL, we specialize in delicate, minimalist jewelry. Like a dentist or dental hygienist reminding you to floss, us jewelers have our regular advice too!
Two simple, easy to remember tips to help you lengthen your jewelry’s lifespan:
Remove all jewelry before sleeping and bathing.
This prevents all types of damage relating to your jewelry catching on sheets, clothing, bath sponges, etc. Prongs can get caught, and in a swift motion of your hand, end up pried open, thus losing a ring’s stone! The chain on a necklace can also get caught, stretching the chain’s links, or breaking the chain entirely. Our delicately thin 0.8mm and 1.0mm rings can be crushed under the weight of your head or your body while you sleep, and you can wake up with a bent ring!
Store all jewelry in a cool, dry place.
Unlike the bathroom, where it is usually warm, damp, and humid.
If you're reading this after you've damaged your jewelry, all hope is not lost! We have a repair policy specifically for this! Just let us know that you'd like to send your jewelry in for repair, and we'll get back to you ASAP!
