This past weekend I found myself sifting through my jewelry box. No surprise there, but what was shocking was the number of pieces that I own that are in need of some major TLC. From tarnished bracelets to loose gems, you name it. It was all there in front of me. Looking through my collection of not-so-sparkly bling, I started to think. If everything I owned was repaired, I would have so many more options! Who knows, at that point I may not even need any new jewelry. On second thought, let’s be realistic …
The fact of the matter is that all jewelry, new and old, deserves to be cared for. After all a lot of our bling represents major life milestones such as anniversaries, birthdays or personal accomplishments. By taking care of our jewelry we’re able to wear it with confidence and as a result, those memories live on.
While it all makes so much sense, for some reason, when our favorite pieces lose their luster we don’t give them the love that they deserve. Rather, we shove them to the back of our jewelry drawers and forget about them. I’m guilty of it and I spend the majority of my week at a jewelry store! Shame on me. Shame on all of us.
I say it’s time we all do something about our broken jewelry. Pull those pieces from the back of your drawer. Bring your bling, and the memories that they represent, back to life! If that’s not enough motivation, how about discount repair services? That’s right, bring your lack-luster jewelry into Yelton’s this October and I’ll give you 20% off of your repair. It’s only the right thing to do. We all deserve it.
