Harsh chemicals and solvents can damage the finish of your jewelry and should never be used to clean it. This can cause the stones to lose their luster in addition to eating away the enamel on any of the pieces.
Keep jewelry stored safely and away from both air and humidity. Trying putting them in a box with a tight-fitting lid or a bag that has a drawstring closure. Air and humidity will make the metals in jewelry tarnish. Precious metals are capable of being polished until they are like new, while non-precious metals will not be able to be saved. This is because the non-precious metals are simple copper metal coated with the covering of precious metals, and when polished, they will allow the copper to show through.
Make sure a piece of jewelry is still in style before you buy it. The only thing better than picking up a gorgeous bauble is getting it on sale!
Try out the jewelery by wearing it for a period of time, like a day, so you can see whether it’s uncomfortable or doesn’t hang as well as you hoped. You will also find out if your creation is durable enough.
Take stones into consideration when you go to purchase new jewelry. Choose stones that complement your complexion and that best reflect your personality. Pieces in neutral tones work well with any item in your wardrobe. It will be of no value to you to purchase jewels that are not easy to incorporate into your lifestyle.
Remember that even costume jewelry needs careful attention. Many embellishments on costume jewelry are only secured with glue rather than set into the piece. Therefore, you shouldn’t get costume jewelry wet or expose it to harsh chemicals. The best way to clean these pieces are to wipe them clean with a damp cloth and dry immediately with another cloth. Doing so will keep your jewelry looking its best for life.
The brooch adds a unique touch and a bit of your style to your outfit. You have the option of placing it close to your hip, or at your waist near the center.
Make sure you look into the history of your gemstone, especially if it was treated at all. The way to care for a stone differs greatly depending on how it was treated. For example, you would not want to use a jewelry cleaner that is incompatible with a certain type of treatment. Doing so could result in irreversible damages to the color and surface of the stone.

Put the tangled necklace onto the plastic wrap, then pour a little mineral oil or baby oil onto the piece. Gently untangle the knots with needles. Once it’s untangled, use dish soap to wash the necklace and pat it dry.
That includes dry or steam saunas. Both heat and moisture will damage your jewelery.
Try to purchase sets of jewelry as a gift for someone. It is often possible to get a good deal on jewelry sets at a jewelry store. You can split up the set and give the loved one a piece of jewelry as each holiday comes around. This ensures that you will have a lovely gift that is sure to match and be cherished.
For attractive and tangle-free necklace storage, you can use nice-looking robe hooks. Attach this hardware to the inside of your closet door or on your bedroom wall, and hang groups of necklaces according to length or color. Not only does this keep necklaces from tangling up into knots in your jewelry box, but it makes an attractive accent to your decor.
Make heads turn with unique crystal or onyx pieces. By being nicer to your wallet, you may get better results.
