Avoid harsh chemicals like bleach, ammonia and acetone that may permanently damage your jewelry. Doing so can damage the shine and luster of the stones on your favorite pieces.
Know what is trendy before you buy a piece of jewelry. One of the few things that can enhance the appeal of a lovely piece of jewelry is knowing that it came at a great discount!
You want to ensure that your jewelry always looks its best so do everything you can to stop it from tarnishing. If possible, remove your jewelry if you are around water. A lot of metals will rust, tarnish or dull when they come in contact with water. A single coat of transparent nail polish may help protect certain types of metal.
Costume jewelry should be treated differently than your other jewelry. Costume jewelry is often put together using glue and other adhesives, unlike stoned that are set using metal. Don’t immerse costume jewelry in water or use chemicals on it. To properly care for it you need to use a cloth dampened with warm water. After wiping make sure to use another cloth to thoroughly dry it. This keeps costume jewelry looking its best.
It can sometimes be overwhelming to sift through all the available options for purchasing jewelry, from the cost factor to caring to the piece, as well as choosing the right piece for your needs. This article serves as a great guideline for jewelry selection, maintenance and ownership.
