I just bought this necklace and the crystals keep falling off Sad


Two fell off in the mail and I glued them back on, but then I wore it today and a different stone fell off. I can't glue it back on since I don't have it.

So I was wondering if there's a way to seal the crystals in that wont make it less shiny or anything or if I should just invest in some crystals and be ready to glue them on. It's made of Lucite if that helps with giving me ideas.
I've never messed with any kind of jewelry before and don't want to mess up this $150 necklace so feel free to tell me if this is too big a project for beginners  Wink

I don't know about you, but if I paid $150 for a necklace, I'd be pretty pissed that it's falling apart... It sounds like it might be defective. Is there any way you can contact whoever you bought it from and see if they'll do an exchange?

Other than that, I have a friend who makes necklaces and covers it in lacquer. It's really shiny and it forms a smooth coating. I don't know if that might be something you would like.

Good luck!

This seems kind of pointless because I don't think you'd want to do it to a $150 necklace, but I've always covered small rhinestones on body jewelry with just plain clear nail polish.

Well I assumed the first 2 stones was because the post office always mistreats my packages. They've forced a contact juggling ball into my mail slot and got it stuck before! I know the designer fixes the items but only if they were bought directly from her store and I bought it on eBay. I just sent a message to the eBay seller so hopefully me trying to fix it the first wont be a problem with getting it exchanged.

I had thought about this but didn't want to jump in and do it without and advice.  Smiley
