Rough handling

When putting on necklaces and bracelets, do you tug the chains to position your jewelry or to hook the clasp on? Stop doing that! Constant tugging damages the links on jewelry chains, which will cause them to break sooner or later.

Using wrong cleaning products

Wearing pendants or charms that are too heavy for the chain

As much as we love dainty necklaces chains and bracelets chains with large pendants or charms for its bold, fashionable stylish look, it’s also a cause for necklace and bracelet chains breaking! When choosing necklace or bracelet chains, you should take the weight and size of the sterling silver pendant or charm into account.
