Almost all women love jewelry as a gift. If you need to find just the right jewelry gift but have no idea what to buy, this article is for you. Here are some suggestions on how to pick out the right jewelery for your woman.
To keep your jewelry looking attractive, polish it regularly using a cloth made especially for this purpose. This helps keep your jewelry shiny without the need for chemical cleansers, which can damage the pieces. Buff your jewelry with the two-sided cloth, just as if you were cleaning a glass. Use the side of the cloth that is designed for polishing to remove fingerprints, dust and other surface imperfections, and then use the opposite side to buff the jewelry and make it gleam.
Avoid harsh chemicals like bleach, ammonia and acetone that may permanently damage your jewelry. This can dull your stones and eat away their enamel.
Store your jewelry collection carefully. The right jewelry box that has separate compartments, hooks and holders to keep the pieces apart is the best choice. Avoid simply piling them on top of each other in a box. This does damage to jewelry pieces, which are often fragile. Necklaces lumped together can get tangled up into a knotted ball.
Keep your jewelry in a relatively air-tight container, and minimize its exposure to humidity. Trying putting them in a box with a tight-fitting lid or a bag that has a drawstring closure. Metals will become tarnished when exposed to air and humidity. It’s possible to restore precious metals through polishing, but lesser-quality metals may suffer permanent damage.
Your jewelry should be durable and long-lasting. Don’t buy jewelry from less than reputable stockists if you expect your pieces to be of the highest quality. A high-quality piece of jewelry should be well-made and show superior craftsmanship. A good jeweler can provide you with some background on the piece, such as who crafted it, where it was manufactured, and where any stones in it came from. You need to buy quality jewelry so that you can pass it down as an heirloom.
Discover whether they wear studs, hoop earrings, or some other type of jewelry. Knowing their preferences will be an invaluable guide when you go out to buy them a special item of jewelry.
Put the jewelry on and wear it for a bit so you can describe the comfort and fit. It will also allow you to test the piece’s durability.
When buying jewelry, think about what kind of stone would be right. Any stones that you choose should go with your skin tone and reflect your personality. Choose neutral colors that will easily match any outfit you decide to wear. Buying something that does not work with multiple outfits is pointless.
Costume jewelry needs special care. Costume settings are often glued-in as compared to set-in. Do not dip your jewelery in chemicals that may harm them. Use a gentle cloth, like microfiber, to clean it. One wet, then another, dry. Done regularly, this process will keep your costume jewelry looking great.
It’s a simple way to turn a plain belt into something more eye catching. Pin it in the front or at your hip.
Determine whether or not your stone received a treatment, and what kind, prior to purchasing it. The kind of care your stone needs is dependent on what it was treated with. For example, improper cleaning with the wrong method may damage the stone by stripping the treatment.
It has been said already, but jewelry is rarely, if ever, the wrong choice for that perfect gift. These tips can help you find the right jewelery that will complement the special lady in your life.
