Jewelery is a great thing to buy for someone to show them that you care or to celebrate something that they have achieved. Even a small and inexpensive piece if meaningful. This article can help you learn more about jewelry, whether it is your own or you choose to give it as a gift:
Avoid using harmful substances like bleach, ammonia, acetone, turpentine and the like to clean them. This could cause the stone to change color or become dull in appearance, and it may eat away at the enamel on the piece.
Watch how you store your jewelry when it isn’t being worn. You should keep the pieces separate in compartments, boxes, holders, and on hooks for better storage. Resist the urge to jumble all your pieces together in one box or basket. Not only will your necklaces become hopelessly tangled, you risk harming any fragile pieces as they bump and scrape against each other as you search the box.
Jewelry should be stored in an air-tight and humid free area. Ideally, you should keep them in drawstring bags or in a jewelry box. Humidity and air tends to cause precious and non-precious metals to tarnish. While precious metals can be polished back to their original luster, non-precious metals are only coated in which case polishing causes the copper metal underneath to show through.
When shopping for a diamond, it’s crucial that you do comparisons. Take a good look at all the pieces that you like, examining them and comparing them to each other. Be alert, since there are various ways to deceive consumers into thinking a diamond is better then it really is.
Look at what they are wearing now. Do they like hoops or studs? Does the person prefer chokers or loose fitting necklaces? This will help you get started in your search for the perfect item of jewelry for your loved one.
Before you buy a new piece of jewelry, research the latest trends. It is one thing to get a gorgeous bauble, but it is another to get it on sale!
