Buying a few pieces of trendy jewelry can breath new life into your wardrobe. Maybe you just need a nice gift for a friend. By following the advice in this article you can feel confident on whatever selection you make.
To keep your jewelry looking attractive, polish it regularly using a cloth made especially for this purpose. This is an easy way to get shine without chemicals and solvents. Polish your jewelry with a two-sided polishing cloth as you might buff a lovely glass. The first side is designed to polish, while the other is for adding shine.
Avoid using harmful substances like bleach, ammonia, acetone, turpentine and the like to clean them. Doing so can damage the shine and luster of the stones on your favorite pieces.
Separate your jewelry for storage to avoid getting pieces tangled. Precious metals and certain gemstones will tarnish if they are exposed to humidity, so keep the away from this. Avoid just throwing them into a box in an unorganized manner. This haphazard approach can cause damage to the individual components of fine jewelry, and create a tangled mess.
Jewelry should last for years to come. When buying jewelry, only buy from dealers with good reputations, so that you don’t buy a piece that seems durable, but really isn’t. A high-quality piece of jewelry should be well-made and show superior craftsmanship. Ask the jeweler about the history behind the piece and learn more about who made it, as well as the origin of the materials. When you choose a piece of jewelry that is high in quality, it can become a heirloom that will last forever.
Now that you know more about jewelry, you may confidently select fine pieces of various metals, gemstones, beads and precious metals. The investment that you make now in a quality-piece will be something to be proud of and enjoy for years to come.
