Jewelry looks good. Jewelry finishes an outfit. Jewelry can complement your skintone and hair color. Jewelry…… well, if we’re being frank, jewelry can be a nightmare as well when it comes to taking care of it.

There’s no denying how amazing jewelry is, of course; most women have a soft spot for something that sparkles, the feel of bare metal against our skin. However, it’s got to be acknowledged that sometimes jewelry is difficult to wear. It’s not literally painful — well, hopefully not anyway — but the experience of wearing it is sometimes less than delightful.

So in order to make sure your always going to feel good wearing your favorite pieces of jewelry, below I’ll show you  the most common jewelry-related issues. If you have experienced any of these issues, you can reassure yourself that after reading through this, you’ll never have to suffer through the same experience again. YASSSSS!!

So what are the most common jewelry problems — and how do you solve them?

Necklace Nightmare: Hair Snags In Necklace Chains

You’re sitting at home, flicking through a magazine, feeling at peace with the world. You lean forward to pick up your coffee and — ouch! The painful scalp rip of your hair attaching itself to your necklace rather than your head.

We’ve all been there; some of us might even have small bald patches as proof.  {Dramatic Much} The most obvious answer to this problem is always to wear your hair tied back when wearing a necklace — but that’s not exactly practical, is it?

Snagging doesn’t have to be a part of life when you’re wearing a necklace. The best way to prevent it is to try a little DIY. What you need to do is wrap something around the clasp of the necklace; the clasp is the most likely cause of any tangles. You could wrap with some sticky plastic, a piece of felt, or anything that stays secure and is relatively discreet. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even try wrapping the clasp in embroidery thread to add a little colour as well as prevent your hair from tangling.

With the clasp wrapped in your chosen material, you should be able to wear your hair loose without having to worry about snags. If you’re concerned about your DIY fix being obvious to others, don’t worry; if your hair is long enough to snag in the clasp, then your DIY work is going to be covered by the length of your hair.


Watch Woes: Spinning Around Your Wrist and Chafing

Have you ever noticed how many women’s watches aren’t adjustable — or at the very least, are difficult to adjust? Unlike the guys, whose watches tend to have straps that can ensure one size fits all, women’s watches have a tendency to be metal links, or have very few options for sizing on the band.

If you love a watch, you’ll likely put up with it not being a perfect fit. That is, until you’re wearing your watch and the weather is warm. The watch begins to slip. The first slip is fine, but the second time is too many — you can feel the tender skin of your wrist beginning to chafe. The watch might fit perfectly in most conditions, but on hot days, it slips and threatens to cause damage.

What can you do about it? You have a few options.

  • Take the watch off and add a little baby powder on the back. This helps to absorb the moisture from your skin.
  • Spray antiperspirant on the section of your wrist the watch sits on. Any antiperspirant featured on should do the trick.This is surprisingly effective. Provided you leave the antiperspirant to dry before putting your watch on, your skin won’t feel sticky, and you’ll be saved from chafing all day long.

Ruinous Rings: Your Ring Size Is a Myth

When you buy a ring from the likes of, you will usually be asked to select a ring size — a letter, most often. This is all well and good and can help you find a ring that will fit your finger, but it’s also not a guarantee of a constant perfect fit.

Have you ever noticed how sometimes your rings are too loose, practically slipping off your fingers? But at other times, they feel a little too tight and constricting? It’s not weight changes that are affecting your fingers, it’s water retention. Women have a tendency to retain water at certain points in the menstrual cycle, and the fingers are where it’s most noticeable. A ring that fits perfectly one day might suddenly become too tight, which can make planning outfits in advance difficult.

It’s best to buy rings one size larger than you need, to account for this fluctuation. On the days when you’re not retaining water, you can buy a discreet rubber attachment to keep the ring firmly in place through the day. It’s easier to make a ring fit when it’s too loose than if it’s too small, so sizing up is a good option if water retention tends to be an issue for you.

Earring Errors: Too Heavy To Function

Big earrings have always been fashionable. The shapes, colours, and metals may change, but for the most part, bigger is better. Big earrings can help complement your jawline, slim your face, and just all-out feel wonderful to wear. I love big earrings!!  That is, until you get halfway through the day and your earlobes are screaming for mercy. They’ve been carrying more weight than they were ever designed to do, and now they’re protesting. To combat this, change the way you pick earrings. If you want to buy expensive earrings — which tend to be heavier — then buy studs, which are far easier to wear. For big, statement earrings, opt for cheaper, costume pieces. H&M have a few great ones! These are lighter and thus more comfortable to wear — and only you need to know that cubic zirconia isn’t a real diamond.

So now you know how to fix some of the most common jewelry complaints, which pieces are you most looking forward to wearing this fall?

Thanks for Reading Guys!
