Why avoid making light weight gold and Diamond studded Bangle?
Here we have come up with an eye opening case . It explains why avoid making light weight gold and diamond studded bangle to save few bucks.
It is a general tendency to save money by making light weight gold jewellery . We make it a point that use less gold and save money which can be used for some other purpose. However by compromising on gold weight we sacrifice on the life of jewellery.
“Why we do not recommend using less gold in making diamond studded gold jewellery?”
We have discussed similar incidence in the above video to help you know the consequences of using less gold. Less usage of gold will eventually affect the strength of the prongs which hold the diamonds. If prongs are loose , diamonds may come off and possibility of loss arises. If the jewellery is used on a daily basis than more will be the wear n tear. Finally it will affect the life and durability of the jewellery
The case study
Here we present a real life case study that helps us know why we should not use lesser gold in making jewellery.
One of our client sent us an Old diamond studded gold bangle from Pune to refurbish and reset few diamonds in it. Due to regular use of bangle and wear n tear , some of the prongs had loosened and diamonds would come off the prong. Hence client sent the bangle to us for setting diamond.
This lady had bought this bangle about 8 – 10 years back from a reputed jeweller in pune. However to save money she choose to go for a light weight bangle. In this process she didnt recognise the threat of weak prongs .
She would get the bangle repaired from us almost every month. She even lost few diamonds. Hence we recommended her to remove all the diamonds at once, get them cleaned , add little gold and strengthen the prong. So that she need not repair her bangle every now and than. Also it would solve her problem for at least 8 – 10 years.
Our point is do not try and save money by using 2 – 3 grams less gold while making jewellery as in the long run it will make you face losses . In case of bangle it can affect the shape of bangle , its durability and life.
