4 Ways on How to Prevent Jewelry Chains from Breaking

4 Ways on How to Prevent Jewelry Chains from Breaking

Previously, we’ve talked about 5 reasons necklace and bracelet chains break. Now, let us dive into ways to prevent jewelry chains from breaking and how to fix them.

How to Stop Jewelry Chain from Breaking?

1. Don’t Tug On the Chains

It’s frustrating when we take a look at our bracelet and necklace collection only to realize that they’re tangled! However, always resist the urge to tug them apart! Constant tugging will damage the jewelry chain links, which will cause them to break sooner or later.

2. Last On, First Off

When it comes to wearing accessories and jewelry, always follow the ‘last on, first off’ rule. Jewelry should always be the last thing you put on and the first thing you remove in an outfit. This helps prevent your necklaces and bracelet chains from getting tangled with each other or with your outfit.

3. Clean Your Jewelry Regularly

Debris and dirt that’s caused by body oils and sweat can stick onto chains, causing damage over time if not cleaned. With proper care and maintenance, your jewelry will shine brighter and last longer. Besides, stronger soaps may corrode your jewelry and cause the metal links to fall apart.

4. Store Your Jewelry Properly

Whether you’re putting away your jewelry chains for the day or packing it to go on a trip, always keep it in a box or use straws to keep necklaces and bracelets tangle-free. Besides, make sure to keep your jewelry in a dry place as some metals can rust (but sterling silver jewelry won’t!).

How do I Fix My Broken Necklace or Bracelet Chain?

Breaking a favorite necklace or bracelet may ruin your day, but you might just be able to fix it.

First, get your pliers ready! Check your chain, if the broken link is still stuck to the necklace or bracelet chain, make sure to remove it first!

Next, use your pliers to open up the last link before the break. Then, hook that link with the chain to make it whole again.

 

Now, close the link with your pliers and your jewelry chain is as good as new.

This may sound simple, but may get frustrating as it takes practice due to the delicateness of the “procedure”. Some necklaces even have multiple layers or intricate designs, so you’ll have to be extra careful!

Prevention is better than cure, so keep your favorite sterling silver bracelets and sterling silver necklaces safe. But also, don’t be afraid to contact a professional jeweler if you are looking to get your favorite jewelry pieces fixed.
