The station was opened on the line in 1995 (along with the rest of the Jewellery Line connection).

The Midland Metro line opened in 1999.

It is located on Vyse Street.

It was lightly raining when I first got here, although the rain had stopped when I wondered around the Quarter.

Many people are passionate about buying jewelry to add to their own wardrobe or those of loved ones. With such a big variety of jewelry and specific ways to care for them and wear them appropriately, it is good to know some things. This article will offer some tips and advice about jewelry. If you have questions, here are some answers.

Use a polishing cloth to keep your jewelry clean and free from damage. This is a very easy way to make them shine and not have to use any type of chemicals or solvents. You just have to polish each piece the same as you would polish glass using the two-sided cloth. Polish jewelry with one side of the cloth, then flip it over and shine jewelry with the other side.

For example, you should never use bleach, turpentine, or ammonia on your jewelry. Natural acids won’t erode the enamel on your copper jewelry the way harsh chemicals can.

When you go shopping for sterling silver jewelry pieces, take with you a magnet and a monocle. Use the magnet to detect fake jewelry; real silver will not be attracted to the magnet, but the cheaper metals will. Look for the hallmark stamped on the piece of jewelry to determine what percentage sterling silver it is. If there is no hallmark, the piece is probably not authentic and may, indeed, be counterfeit.

A good piece of jewelery can last you your whole life. When you are ready to chose your next selection of jewelry, make sure you find a reputable dealer that will make sure that you find a high-quality piece. Any piece that is high quality will have its craftsmanship and quality shining through. The person selling the piece should know its history, including who made it and the source of the stones. When you choose a piece of jewelry that is high in quality, it can become a heirloom that will last forever.

Pay attention to the types, sizes, and colors of jewelry that the person wears. Paying attention to these aspects of their current wardrobe will help you make a purchase they are more likely to enjoy.

Before you buy a new piece of jewelry, look at what the current trends are. If there is one thing better than finding the perfect, most heart-stopping bauble, it would be snagging the piece at a wonderful price!

If you wish to keep a piece of jewelry looking fantastic, preventing it from tarnishing is important. Try to keep your jewelry away from water. A lot of metals will rust, tarnish or dull when they come in contact with water. Clear nail polish, applied in a thin coat, can give jewelry some added protection.

Consider the stones whenever you buy jewelry. Think about your skin tone, and also think about your personality as you choose your favorite stones. Look for colors in neutral shades that you can wear with any of your favorite clothes. A piece that is hard to wear is not as useful as one that goes with everything.

It is a good idea to determine the best approaches for jewelry care. Various settings, types of metals, and gemstones need different types of care to protect them and make sure they get cleaned properly. Not all jewelry should be cared for in the same way. If you are unfamiliar with the correct way to clean or maintain a piece, consult a jeweler.

For those creative, quirky people in your life, shop for handcrafted original pieces. You want the piece to match the person; unique people deserve unique jewelry.

Jewelry shopping can overwhelm women and men alike. With any luck, this article can help with your jewelry questions.
