It happened to all of us. We put the jewelry on too tight, we bent our seamless ring too many times, we have a piece of jewelry hanging on something and the gem falls out. What now?
If you haven’t spent too much on your jewelry, this is usually not a big deal. You will probably only reduce your losses and buy a new body jewelry.
However, if you’ve invested in a high quality piece of jewelry, you need to know how to fix your broken item.
Although we love gold, it’s an incredibly malleable metal. One of the reasons we work with 14 carat gold is that it contains metals that make it stronger than 18 carat gold. However, you must treat your 14 carat gold body jewelry well so that it lasts forever. If your jewelry gets stuck too often or you pull your dumbbells too tight, the metal will wear out.
The good news is that your jewelry can be repaired. Here are some common methods of how body jewelry can break, how to avoid it, and how to fix it.
(Psst, we can repair, clean, and polish your jewelry for a fee. If your jewelry is loose or broken, send an email to email@example.com and we’ll see what we can do!)
The balls on your dumbbells no longer contract
It’s a common problem: the pearl ends on your dumbbells (whether straight, circular, curved, or belly rings) never seem to get tight enough. They may feel safe at first, but you quickly notice that they loosen when you move.
If the balls on your circular dumbbells come loose, it’s probably because the thread is removed.
Mostly this is because you removed the thread after tightening the balls too tight. This can happen with any jewelry, but since gold is so malleable, you need to be extra careful not to over tighten your high quality jewelry.
Once you’ve removed the thread of your female thread, you can try buying a replacement ball to see if this helps. If not, you will need to have the entire part repaired as you will need to attach the threads to the inside of the barbell.
Your seamless ring is out of shape
Seamless rings are fantastic because they offer a subtle look in a variety of piercings. This look is achieved because they only have a tiny seam that allows you to insert the jewelry. This seam also makes it a bit difficult to deal with this type of jewelry.
To avoid damaging your seamless ring, you need to know how to properly open it. You should never Pull the ends straight apart. Instead, gently pull one end towards you and slide the other away. This technique extends the lifespan of your seamless ring and prevents a misshapen look.
If you are not completely satisfied with changing your seamless ring, you can always consult a piercing expert to do it for you. Or choose other seamless tire options like hinge or segment rings that are a little easier to change on your own.
If your seamless ring is out of shape, it may need to be repaired. Depending on how badly damaged it is, you may need to buy a new one instead.
You have lost a gem from your body jewelry
If you’ve invested in a high quality piece of jewelry, the gemstones should be set pretty well. Certain types of settings, such as B. tine settings, but can get caught on clothing, which may cause the pen to become out of shape. In this case, you run the risk of losing your gems.
To avoid this unfortunate event, just take care when wearing your jewelry to avoid getting caught. Check your jewelry from time to time to make sure none of your gemstones are loose, and don’t sleep on more delicate jewelry. If your jewelry dangles or has larger gemstones, you probably shouldn’t be wearing it when engaging in active hobbies such as extreme sports, sports, or outdoor activities.
When you lose a gem, it’s usually pretty easy to put a new one. However, depending on the type of gem lost and the complexity of the jewelry, this can be an expensive solution. You should do your best to avoid losing your gems.
You have lost other jewelry
Even in the best of circumstances, losing ball ends, straps, and other trinkets is easy when you start your day. You should do your best to keep an eye on your jewelry and check if everything is OK from time to time, but it’s easy to forget.
If you lose a piece of jewelry, spare parts are always available. If you lose jewelry frequently, it’s a good idea to have a few extras on hand so that you don’t accidentally lose all of your body jewelry.
Breaking jewelry isn’t the end of the world, but repairing it could be expensive. Be sure to keep an eye on your jewelry and protect it for a lifetime.
