piece of jewelry last for a long time. In this article, you'll find out ways you can take better care of
your jewelry, and how you can make old jewelry look like new.
Make sure to keep regular tabs on the state of your jewelry. You need to constantly assess the
condition of your pieces to catch any issues or damage early. It is best to catch them early because
this is when you should get them fixed to avoid major or irreversible damage, or even losing the
A great place to purchase almost any type of jewelry in the world is Ebay. Ebay is an amazingly large
marketplace that serves as a gateway to the world. You can purchase affordable vintage, fashion and
fine jewelry. Ebay can help you get the best deals and even purchase jewelry that has long since
been considered rare or no longer manufactured.
Attending yard-sales is a great way to build up a collection of jewelry. Many people sell old costume
jewelry for practically pennies. This is a perfect opportunity to stock up on broken pieces that can be
repaired or made into new jewelry later. Many new beautiful pieces of jewelry can be born of old
broken pieces. Use yard-sales to build up your collection.
When choosing jewelry for an outfit, think about not only what color or colors your clothes are, but
also what color your jewelry is. If you're wearing a necklace on a silver chain, try to pair it with a
silver ring or earrings with silver findings. Try to avoid mixing different colored metals unless you
have a single piece, such as a watch, that combines both.
To open a jump link when making chain jewelry,
hold the jump link steady with pliers your left
hand, and grip the opposite side of the opening
with pliers in your right. Gently twist your hands
towards each other. This twisting action helps
the jump ring maintain its circular shape without
distortion, which will occur if you try to push the
sides together without twisting.
Personalized jewelry will never fail as a gift,
especially for Mother's Day. A ring with the
birthstones of all her children will make a Mom
beam with delight. You could also get a bangle
bracelet with her childrens' names engraved on
the inside. My favourite is a ring with "I Love
You" engraved on the inside.
When choosing earrings, test the weight in the store. You can't--and shouldn't--try them on, but
holding them in your hand may be able to tell you if they're too heavy for all-day wear or just too
heavy. Heavy earrings will eventually become painful. No matter how nice they look, you won't want
to wear them if they're not comfortable.
To best protect the investment you made in your jewelry purchase, take care of it. Do not wear it
when you do something like cleaning your house. If you do this, the chemicals you expose your
jewelry to could harm the precious metals and stones. It's likely worth the minute that it takes to
You can safely clean your jewelry at home. Mix a small amount of mild detergent in water. Allow
your dirty jewelry to soak for several minutes and then gently scrub it with a soft toothbrush. Finish
the cleaning by rinsing your jewelry in clean water and allowing it to air dry.
When giving a woman jewelry is it important to be creative when giving it to her. Women love
excitement, and if you can find a fun and exciting way to give her the jewelry she may like it even
more. She will forever have a story to tell to her friends and family about how sweet and creative
you were when you gave her the piece of jewelry.
Avoid buying jewelry while gold and silver prices are high. Shop around and look for bargains when
it is necessary to purchase a ring while gold is at an all time high. Shopping at locally owned jewelry
stores and staying away from large chain stores, will help you find a quality and reasonably priced
piece of jewelry.
Keep in mind that 10 karat gold is the strongest of all types of gold, but it is also the one that
contains the least amount of gold. On the other hand, 24 karat gold is the one that contains the
largest amount of gold and it is the weakest.
If you are purchasing jewelry for a significant other, keep in mind the status of your relationship. A
gift of jewelry may signify a change in the seriousness of your relationship that you are not ready for
yet. Purchase a piece that is indicative of your current status with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
As a jeweler, you should do your best to differentiate yourself from the concurrence. Set up your
store in a unique way or create an original website. Create original pieces as well as classics. Choose
the strategy that works for you: find your audience and create pieces that correspond to a certain
Clean silver jewelry with products from your kitchen. Silver jewelry tarnishes with time but it is
easily cleaned with vinegar. Combine half a cup of white vinegar with two tablespoons of baking
soda in a small bowl. Stir the mixture until it forms bubbles. Put your silver jewelry into the solution
leaving it for two to three hours depending on how tarnished it is. Remove the jewelry and wash it
under cool running water. It will look as good as new!
Mother of pearl is a popular choice for jewelry because it offers all the beauty and iridescence of
fancy pearls at a much lower price, and can be carved into a multitude of shapes. It can be
recovered from many organisms and a very popular source is http://www.fabulousafter40.com/
currently abalone shell. One popular shape is the hibiscus flower.
Purchasing silver jewelry can be tricky, you need to be sure the item is clearly marked "925" or
"sterling silver". Do not confuse "nickel silver" or "German silver" with sterling silver, because those
metals do not contain any silver. Also, check to verify that the words "sterling silver" are written on
the sales receipt, so you have some proof of what you were told you were buying.
Purchasing costume jewelery for everyday wear is a great alternative to wearing your expensive
jewelery out every day. Many costume pieces are beautiful and very well made. The nice thing about
costume jewelery is that if it breaks or becomes lost, it is easily replaceable. Save your expensive
jewelery for those special occasions, and it will end up saving your wallet a fortune in the long run.

making sure that you get a fair amount for your product, as well as knowing where and who to sell
to. Hopefully the information that we have provided in this article will lead you in the right direction
