Sorting through all the information about jewelry can be an overwhelming task. It may not always seem feasible to incorporate the plethora of information that’s out there. The good news is that some of the best advice has been provided for you in this article.
Polish your jewelry regularly with a jeweler’s polishing cloth. This is a very easy way to make them shine and not have to use any type of chemicals or solvents. Gently polish your jewelry with the two-sided cloth as if it were a mirror. Use one side for polishing and the other for improving its shine.
Avoid using harmful substances like bleach, ammonia, acetone, turpentine and the like to clean them. These chemicals can wreak havoc on your jewelry, from discoloring bands, to dulling stones, to eroding enamel or glue.
Don’t keep your jewelry in open air or someplace with a lot of humidity. Store them in a closed jewelry box or small drawstring bag for maximum protection. Humidity and air tends to cause precious and non-precious metals to tarnish. The thing about this is that non-precious metals cannot fully recover from this because underneath, the copper shows through. However, keep in mind that precious metals can go back to their own original forms.
Do some shopping around when you are looking to buy some diamonds. Closely examine pieces you like, and compare them with similar items you are interested in. Keep an eye out for deceptive tricks to cause you to think a diamond is better than it actually is.
Look at the condition of costume jewelry before making a purchase. Costume jewelry make good investments and they can be costly, but an item that shows major signs of usage will be a poor investment of your time and money. Compare pieces for quality, because good ones stay high or even grow in value over time.
When you are looking for jewelry to purchase, give careful thought to the stones you prefer. Any stones that you choose should go with your skin tone and reflect your personality. If you choose a neutral color it will match anything you wear. Do not buy anything that you cannot wear.
Think about ordering custom jewelery if you want to make an original gift to someone who counts for you. You want the piece to match the person; unique people deserve unique jewelry.
Apply your makeup before putting on your jewelry. If you put on makeup after you put on your jewelry, dust and particles from the makeup will migrate to the jewelry, which makes it dirty quite quickly. It is especially important to follow this tip for necklaces and earrings.
If you want to purchase new jewelry, watch for discounts or sales. You can save a lot of money with the right sale. Use the resources at your disposal like the Internet, newspapers, and even window shopping to find the best sales. Sometimes, buying fashions that are out of style can save you more than half of their original price.
You can untangle delicate necklaces that have become knotted. Before giving up on a tangled knotted mass of precious metal, source some plastic wrap. Put the necklace onto a wrap, and place mineral or baby oil on it. You would then untangle the necklace using needles. When finished, wash it with a little dishwashing liquid and pat dry.
