Your jewelry is something you probably take for granted. Some of your jewelry you most likely keep on all the time, such as a wedding ring or earrings, and some you put on and take off every day without giving it a second glance, such as a favorite necklace, bracelet, or watch. No matter what type of jewelry you wear, if you don't pay attention to it, it may be in need of repair without you even realizing it until it's too late and it breaks and is need of a major repair, or it breaks and you lose part of it.
Shopping for jewelry can be fun and exciting, but it can also be a bit confusing and stressful. You may need to decide what you are looking for before heading to the mall. You should also set a budget so you can let the jeweler or clerk know not to show you items you are not prepared to buy. Sticking to a budget is important so you do not feel any buyer's remorse.
