Some precautionary measures

  • Before putting on your piece of jewellery, examine it for a moment:
  • check that the clasp (and its safety catch if it has one) is not "loose"
  • check that the settings of the stones have not moved, as follows:
  • either by shaking the piece of jewellery close to your ear: if you hear a slight noise, this means that the stones are no longer perfectly secured;
  • or by rubbing the piece of jewellery against a thin cloth: if the cloth catches, this means that the prongs have moved.
  • If you are in the slightest doubt, it is advisable not to wear your piece of jewellery until you have had it checked at a Cartier boutique.
