In the exquisite world of luxury jewelry, the artistry and allure of Italian craftsmanship are held in the highest esteem. Here at Valobra Master Jewelers, we understand the sophistication and discerning tastes of our clientele and aim to provide not only beautifully crafted pieces but also the knowledge needed to make informed jewelry selections. We’ve identified common missteps in buying, wearing, and maintaining jewelry that can tarnish the experience of owning these captivating adornments.

Mistakes in Buying Jewelry

Not Doing Enough Research

Embarking on the journey to acquire a new piece of jewelry should always start with research. Jewelry holds its value not only in precious metals and gemstones but also in master craftsmanship and design. It’s not uncommon for customers to make impulse purchases, swayed by the dazzling allure of a piece, only to later realize it lacks the quality or durability they expected. This is especially pertinent when purchasing from exclusive collections, where every piece is a testament to the craft and skill of the Italian jeweler.

Disregarding Personal Style and Lifestyle

Every piece of jewelry tells a story and should be a reflection of the wearer’s personality and lifestyle. Selecting a piece based solely on its aesthetic appeal without considering its compatibility with your lifestyle and wardrobe can lead to regrets. Remember, jewelry is an extension of your style and should complement your life’s narrative.

Ignoring Size and Fit

The beauty of a piece can quickly be overlooked if it’s the wrong size. An ill-fitting piece can be uncomfortable, potentially damaging, and may even risk being lost. This is especially crucial for rings and bracelets, where precise sizing ensures both comfort and security.

Overlooking the Authenticity of the Jewelry

Authenticity is an attribute that defines luxury jewelry. At Valobra Master Jewelers, every piece is hallmarked, certifying its genuineness and the purity of its precious metals. Skipping this step might lead to acquiring counterfeits, tarnishing your jewelry experience.

Mistakes in Wearing Jewelry


While adorning oneself with an array of exquisite pieces can be tempting, moderation is key. The principle of ‘less is more’ often holds true for jewelry. Showcasing one or two statement pieces allows their beauty and craftsmanship to truly shine.

Inappropriate Jewelry for the Occasion

Each piece of jewelry has its moment. Wearing a grandiose necklace for a casual brunch or dainty earrings for a gala event might not showcase your pieces in the best light. Consider the occasion before choosing your accessories.

Mismatching Jewelry Pieces

The art of pairing jewelry involves balancing colors, designs, and styles to create a harmonious look. Mismatching pieces might distract from the elegance of your ensemble and the individual beauty of each piece.

Mistakes in Maintaining and Storing Jewelry

Improper Cleaning Techniques

Even the most exceptional pieces require careful maintenance to preserve their allure. Resorting to harsh cleaning methods can cause irreversible damage. We recommend professional cleaning, ensuring your pieces retain their luster and longevity.

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Periodic inspections by professionals are vital for maintaining the integrity of your jewelry. This helps in the early detection of any potential issues and prolongs the life of your pieces.

Poor Storage Practices

Storing jewelry haphazardly can lead to scratches, tangling, and even breakages. Dedicate a safe, organized space for your jewelry to prevent damage and loss.


Avoiding these common mistakes enhances the joy of owning and wearing exquisite pieces of jewelry. From the moment of purchase, wearing, to maintenance, every step is crucial in preserving the legacy of the pieces and the master craftsmanship they embody. At Valobra Master Jewelers, we are committed to providing you with not just exceptional jewelry but also the knowledge to ensure your pieces last a lifetime.
