You're running a tiny bit late, and you go to put on a lovely diamond necklace you only wear for special occasions, and (sound effect: screeching brakes)...! The fine chain has a knot in it, and there's no budging it in the amount of time you have until you walk out the door. Grrrrr!
Here're some ideas to prevent this problem of modern life (especially when travelling:
- Put each fine necklace (with its pendant attached) into a small ziplok bag, then close the seal while leaving a little bit of chain (maybe one inch) dangling outside the ziplok.
- Cut a regular straw (like from McDonald's) into 2 pieces. String the straw onto a fine chain, and reattach clasp. This method, shared by one of our clients over 20 years ago, works great but we don't know why!
- Always keep the chain clasped no matter where it is. Unclasped chains seek each other out like a moth to a flame! LOL
And, if you ever have a knot (or knots) so bad that you can't undo it, Masterpiece Jewelers will be glad to work on it for you, usually for FREE!
