Sometimes, with regular maintenance, breakage can be avoided, sometimes not. Thanks to the once popular “A Diamond is Forever” ad campaign, people often (and mistakenly) expect their jewelry to be indestructible. It isn’t. Contrary to popular belief you can’t sleep, shower, exercise, cook, garden, lay brick and box while sporting your finest jewels and expect them to survive unscathed. (You know who you are... STOP NOW!) They won’t.
Over time, metal wears away resulting in broken or bent prongs, a break in a chain or a ring shank splitting... in worst case scenarios gemstones can be lost. Sometimes rings shrink and no longer fit your hand (I hate it when that happens). In your beaded jewelry the threads can dry-out and/or stretch resulting in breakage and whoopsy... there go your beads all over the floor. Clasps loosen, links stretch, stones chip and batteries die. When this happens to you (or yours) we’re here for you. (Whether the item came from Simms or not!)
