THE CARE & FEEDING OF JEWELRY: " I'm just a little bit spoiled…" February 26 2015

Gold is rare and platinum even rarer. Not long ago the only people wearing jewelry were the aristocracy.  And guess what - they had servants. Most likely you don't. But your jewelry likes the idea of servants and hopes to avoid the hard objects and grime that go along with:

  • Laundry

  • Dishes

  • Gardening

  • Lifting heavy objects

  • Opening doors: car doors, restaurant doors, the door to your house …

  • Climbing metal ladders

Your jewelry also believes in relaxation. It likes to listen to music, read a good book, or post some photos online. Let's face it - your jewelry is lazy.  It never wants to:

  • Climb granite cliffs, even the fake ones at the gym

  • Sail - on boards or boats

  • Box, even kickboxing

  • Mountain bike, road bike, stationary bike

  • Lift weights, even the tiny ones.

If you can't be parted from your rings when you scale Mt. Everest slip them onto a chain around your neck.   And remember, you may not be a princess but your jewels are fit for one.  Shown below - a place your rings want to avoid!
