Gloves: The Most Dangerous Accessory of All
During the winter months, many people don their hands with gloves in order to protect their hands from the biting cold. But what about protecting your jewelry? Glove interiors are notorious for snagging ring prongs. These damaged prongs often lead to loosened gemstones and lost diamonds. Another thing to keep in mind is that fingers shrink in the cold. Rings have the potential for sliding off fingers when gloves are removed and if you’re like many people this season, this may go undetected in the holiday hassle.
To protect your jewelery, be careful when removing your gloves and check that your rings are still where they’re supposed to be. Avoid wearing gloves with knitted interiors as these are more prone to catching ring prongs. If your rings do happen to get damaged, make sure to stop by King Jewelers where our skilled jewelers will expertly repair your jewelry.
